Blueberry Maqui Berry Power Smoothie

It is bluuuuuueberry time! Fresh berries all day every day! I have already frozen my share of the local love so I can pull from my freezer all winter. I throw them in smoothies, pancakes and baked goods. This smoothie is super delicious with or without the Maqui.

Basic Awesome Nut Milk

Since learning about nut milks, I have not puchased a box of soy, almond or rice milk- or any other milk for that matter since. I use it almost every day for making sweet breads, smoothies, creaming up soups, adding to gravies- you name it. The even MORE basic version is nuts and water in the blender- that’s it. In a pinch you can even use a nut butter and water and blend-and there you have it, milk. With these slightly flavored versions, they are delicious on their own or for use in cereals and shakes.
