"This is a slightly tweaked recipe for Blueberry Milk from Gimme Some Oven. The original calls for cows milk, but after trying several "milks", I think it's best with almond. Just use whatever you like best! I've tried not straining the syrup, but just love the velvety feel and texture of the strained product, so I'll continue to strain it. Also, if you love that blueberries are jam-packed with anti-oxidants, better think twice about using cows milk in this recipe. The protein in cows milk binds with the flavanoids rendering them unusable by the body. So even though it tastes good, it isn't as good for you as you might think. This is really good stuff - I always make a triple recipe of the syrup and keep it in the fridge."

Step 2

Remove from heat and strain through a fine-mesh strainer. Refrigerate in a covered jar.

Step 3

To serve, whisk 1/3 cup blueberry syrup into 1 cup cold milk. Test and adjust the amount of syrup from there.

This recipe will also work with strawberries, blackberries, and cherries.

I made two versions of the syrup, blueberry for my hubby and blackberry for me; both are wonderful. The quick and easy to make syrups were flavorful, rich, creamy and delicious. Thanks for sharing. Made for Seaside Brasserie.

Tasty like a smoothie, but not so heavy. I tried this with both cow's milk and unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and I enjoyed it both ways. In both instances, I found that I liked it more when I added extra blueberry syrup. Good thing I made a double batch of the blueberry syrup, huh? Once the blueberry syrup is gone, I think I will try the blackberry version, too. Thanks for posting this gem! Made for Sweet December Tag 2014
