This violet-colored “milk” is a blissful, liquid luxury of antioxidant goodness matched with beautiful berry sweetness, and it makes a particularly special light dessert.

Berries & Cream superfood juice recipe

MAKES APPROXIMATELY 16 OUNCES (500 MLS)

  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 1 teaspoon maqui berry powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  1. Fold a chessecloth to create a double layer, and lay it inside a medium-sized bowl.  Pour the frozen berries on top of the cheesecloth, and place the bowl in the refrigerator.  Allow the frozen berries to thaw completely for several hours or overnight.  Once the berries are fully thawed, collect the edges of the cheesecloth to form a bag, then use your hands to gently squeeze the “milk” out of the juice through the cloth into the bowl.
  2. Transfer the fresh blueberry juice from step #1 to a blender and add the water, hemp seeds, maqui berry powder, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  3. Blend well, and add stevia (or sweetener of choice) to taste.
  4. Use a fine-mesh sieve to strain before serving.

JUICE BOOST

Use 1 tablespoon acai powder in addition to (or instead of) the maqui berry powder. You can also use ½ cup store-bought berry juice of any variety, or use 2 cups strawberries and juice them fresh, in place of the frozen blueberries.
