“In Finland, they eat lots of berries, blueberries being one of their favorites. I have made this vegan by using non dairy milk, but in Finland they use fresh cow's milk. Adapted from Gimme Some Oven.”
1 cup syrup(about)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 14 cup sugar (or honey or other sweetener to taste)
  • 23 cup water
  • 2 cups milk (almond, rice, cow or other of choice)


  1. In a small saucepan, heat blueberries, sugar and water over medium high heat until boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low, and let simmer for 10-15 minutes to reduce until it is thickens slightly and makes a syrup. Remove from heat and strain through a fine-mesh strainer if desired. Refrigerate.
  2. Whisk together 1/4 cup blueberry syrup with 1 cup cold milk to serve.
  3. This recipe will also work with strawberries, blackberries, lingonberries, and cherries.
