How to Make Homemade Blueberry Milk

First, grab a small saucepan and put water, sugar, and blueberries in it. Now, let it all boil for 5 minutes, and then take it off the heat.

Next, strain this blueberry syrup mixture into a bowl or measuring cup using a fine-mesh sieve or a nut milk bag. Make sure to push those berries to get all the yummy liquid out.

Now, pop that syrup into the fridge to cool down. While it's chilling, get your glasses ready. Each glass gets 2 teaspoons of the syrup at the bottom.

When the syrup is nice and cold, add half a cup of cold milk to each glass. Give it a good stir, and you'll see your milk turn into a beautiful pale violet color. Enjoy!

  1. Doesn't that look delicious! I honestly never had blueberry milk, but for me as a kid, the special treat was strawberry milk.

  2. I love it. I can't wait to give it a shot. Those blue straws were a nice touch!

  3. Speaking of strawberry milk, does the recipe work if we use the same quantity of strawberries (with the same amount of other ingredients)? I might as well try blueberry, it's not very common where I live. Thanks a lot for sharing!

    1. It should, though I didn't test it. The original post says that strawberries can be used.

  4. Michelle O says:

    Yum... I love strawberry milk, and that's even the Nestle kind. So I bet this fresh real fruit one is amazing. Great photos too.

  5. That looks delicious - I will have to try it soon!

    Also, I haven't ever met anyone else that says they like to drink milk with pizza. It's the best (in my opinion)! I get a lot of strange looks when I tell people that though...

  6. Yummy this sounds delicious!! Love your pictures! 🙂

  7. Wow this is a great idea! I am obsessed with milk as a beverage to this day, but I would've never thought to stick blueberries in it. Wonderful!

  8. Lindsey@Lindselicious says:

    Oh I totally want to try this! I wonder if it would be good with the unsweetened vanilla almond milk? Love love your photos- so pretty!
