Rich and delicious! Give your next stack of flapjacks a fruity antioxidant boost with this special syrup recipe.
½ tsp Vanilla Extract
Place the blueberries into a bowl‚ cover‚ and let defrost for several house 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‚ while taking care not to mash the berries. Set the berries aside for a moment. 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.
Xanthan gum is used to help thicken the mixture - it 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.
