OK… The recipe!
Something sweet and simple for summer… something we discovered by chance a few weeks ago after a loving family member brought us a bag full of blackberries…
Berries and Cream
berries (any kind – blackberries are what we used)
2 % milk (or whole milk)
Sugar (to taste)
Honey or Agave Nectar (optional or substitute)
Vanilla (just a bit)
Spoon and bowl for eating
Here’s the trick… take your cold milk and put it in the French Press. Pump the press until the milk is foaming and creamy. Pour it into a bowl and stir in the sugar, vanilla and honey if you want it. Taste as you go to see if you like the flavor. Start with small amounts until you get the milk to taste the way you want it. Blend in the berries, mix and eat!
I was so impressed with the way the French Press creams the milk! My husband is really excited that his French Press has found a purpose. He bought it and hated the way it made coffee, but now he uses it almost daily to foam milk for his morning espresso that he makes on the stove top.
Try it and let me know what you think!
Happy summer eating!
