INGREDIENTS

1 cup frozen blueberries

3 Tbsp. maple syrup

½ tsp. vanilla extract

¼ tsp. xantham gum (optional; see note)

1 tsp. Navitas Organics Maqui Powder

DIRECTIONS

Place the blueberries into a bowl‚ cover‚ and let defrost for several hours at room temperature (this step may also be done overnight in the refrigerator).

When the blueberries are fully defrosted‚ use a fine mesh sieve or strainer to gently press out the excess juice over a small bowl‚ taking care not to mash the berries. Set the berries aside.

Place the liquid berry juice‚ maple syrup‚ vanilla extract‚ maqui powder‚ and xanthan gum into a small blender and blend for a full minute to distribute the gum evenly. Add the liquid into the bowl with the blueberries and mix gently. Makes about 2/3 cup.

Note: Xanthan gum is used to help thicken the mixture and does not affect the flavor. If not using the gum‚ utlizing a blender is not necessary; the recipe may simply be mixed in a bowl.
