As children, we all loved the flavored milk that our mother used to make for us. Chocolate milk and banana milk were among my favorites. Now that I am in my third decade of life, sometimes I make flavored milk for my twin nieces to remember the good days of childhood. Of course, our favorite list is a little different and they love strawberry milk and blueberry milk. Today, I will share my blueberry milk recipe with you.
