We'll, we have to admit it: we couldn't comfortably wrap our minds around adding blueberry anything to coffee. However it was a simple recipe and so we gave it a try. To our utter amazement, it was a refreshing and pleasing combination. Choose the smaller (ie. normal sized) blueberries rather than the humongous variety. Use a bubble tea straw with this fun and textured drink. (Thank you to Trampes & Lynn Woellert who sent us this recipe.)
1 cup coffee, Deadman's Reach®
1 cup cubed ice
2 tsp. half & half
1 packet raw sugar
2 TBSP Blueberry Bubbles (recipe below)
Mix half & half and sugar in the coffee. Cool until warm. Add blueberry pie filling and stir well. Cool more if needed. Pour over ice, stir and enjoy! This fits in one of those 12 oz to-go cups with a lid.
Blueberry Bubble Recipe
3 cups fresh (or frozen if out of season) fully ripe blueberries
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour or 2 TBSP cornstarch
1 TBSP butter (we left this out when we tested the recipe, but for the adventurous we have included it here).
Place blueberries in a medium saucepan. Mix the sugar and cornstarch with blueberries. Cook over low heat until juicy and stir until thickened. Turn off heat and add butter (optional) and stir. Eat or use warm or cool and put in fridge in a Tupperware with lid. Very nice on ice cream too. Enjoy!
