Places to stalk Cravings of a Lunatic!
- 2 cups fresh blueberries frozen if the off season
- 1/4 cup sugar more or less to taste
- 2 cups of vanilla ice cream
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Place blueberries in a bowl, sprinkle on sugar, and toss to coat really well.
Spread the blueberries on a cookie sheet evenly. Place in oven and roast the berries for about 7 to 9 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
Once the blueberries are cool, toss them in a blender with the ice cream, milk and vanilla extract. Pulse until it's combined but thick.
Remove and pour into serving glasses.
Serve with a big old blueberry loving smile!
If you have an adventurous spirit try these with balsamic roasted blueberries, then hit the milkshake with honey. To die for. Not even kidding. Like a grown up version of a milkshake, minus the booze, although you could totally add that if you like.
Toodles and smoochies! xx
