A blueberry breakfast in a cup

Beverages are Alastair’s excuse to get concentrated fruit in a glass. Beverages are also my trick to getting protein in my children. This one makes a great breakfast, in fact.

I used a simple custard approach with this drink just varying the recipe with the fresh blueberries, though frozen berries would work too. The drink was a hit but that is not really a surprise. You cannot go wrong with a custard (unless you overheat your milk). It is a winner every time.

Serve it in a funky cup for extra points. 😉

Blueberry Custard Drink Ingredients

  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup of blue berries
  • Maple syrup to taste if desired (about 2 teaspoons)

Blueberry Custard Drink Ingredients

  1. Separate your egg yolk from the white and set aside.
  2. Pour milk into a saucepan and heat gently on medium heat, stirring regularly, until milk begins to simmer — small bubbles will appear on the edge of the pan. Simmer for about a minute stirring well to distribute the heat. (Take care not to bring the milk to a boil or it will overcook the egg.)
  3. Stir the yolk with a whisk or fork and add it to the heated milk. Whisk and whisk for about a minute.
  4. Turn off the heat.
  5. Add the blueberries to a blender with some of the milk mixture (1/2 cup if plenty). Blend well.
  6. Add the blueberry mixture back to the remaining milk mixture. Add sweetener if desired and check for sweetness. Serve.
