When we went to Bryant’s Blueberries to pick fresh berries, I bought a small blueberry cookbook they had for sale. I felt good about supporting their business with this extra purchase and let’s face it, they knew what to do with 3 and a half pounds of blueberries better than I did.
In addition to the amazing blueberry pie we made from this cookbook, the Blueberry Julius recipe jumped out at me. It looked simple enough for a toddler to do most of the work and sounded absolutely scrumptious. It was!
I first gathered up the ingredients before calling Rocket into the kitchen.
The ingredients needed for the Blueberry Julius were 1 cup of blueberries, 1/2 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of water, 1/4 cup of sugar, and 5 ice cubes. The recipe actually also listed 1 Tbsp. of vanilla instant breakfast. I had no idea what that was, so I left it out and it still tasted absolutely delightful.
Once everything was set up, Rocket was ready to mix it all together.
Pouring the sugar. We rarely use sugar in our cooking, but when we do it’s organic brown sugar. Rocket doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth. His dad, on the other hand…
Carefully pouring the water. To get all the ingredients in this narrow cup, Rocket had to be attentive and precise.
Can’t forget the blueberries!
The blender we use is called a Ninja and it does a fantastic job at handling ice.
This beverage was easy to make and a perfectly refreshing summer drink.
Needless to say, we thoroughly enjoyed blueberry week in this house!
