Rich and Delicious
Give your next stack of flapjacks a fruity antioxidant boost with this special syrup recipe.
½ tsp Canilla Extract
¼ tsp Xantham Gum, optional see Chef's Notes below
1 tsp Navitas Naturals Maqui Powder
1 Cup frozen Blueberries
3 Tbsp Maple Syrup
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.
