Blueberry Juice

The Sneaky Chef

If you can make orange and apple juice, why not make blueberry juice, too? This recipe for juice is good enough to drink on its own, and also makes a great addition to anything you're trying to make a bit healthier whether it's ice pops, pancakes, or even chocolate chip cookies. 

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 Cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2 Cups water
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar

Directions

Bring berries, water, and sugar to boil in a medium pot. Turn heat to low and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. Occasionally mash the blueberries with the back of a spoon to release their juices. Pour into a fine-mesh strainer over a container or bowl, pressing the blueberry "pulp" with the back of a spoon until all the liquid is released.

Store in refrigerator up to 3 days, or freeze ¼-cup portions in sealed plastic bags or small plastic containers. Makes 2 cups of Blueberry Juice. This recipe also yields about ¾ cup pulp leftover in the strainer. Save this pulp to add to Purple Purée.
