The mix is beige with no hint of red coloring.
Magically turns red when you add liquids.
Our patriotic breakfast for Independence Day: red velvet pancakes and blueberry ice milk.
The drink is Mario Batali's recipe from "The Chew" which is made from only 2 ingredients.
To be honest I did not follow Mario's directions. I dumped 2 cups of blueberries in the blender and added milk, a touch of agave syrup and flax seed oil. It comes out much thicker like a smoothie you have to eat with a spoon but it is very healthy and delicious. Since cow's milk gets such a bad rap next time I will try using coconut milk to be extra healthy.
I used aerosol whip cream for the stripes.
Added a touch of blueberries to make it more festive.
My family does not like cream cheese so instead of using a cream cheese glaze they used Log Cabin syrup which does not contain high fructose syrup.
Cream Cheese Glaze
4 oz softened cream cheese
1/4 cup softened butter (half a stick)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Drops of milk
Combine all ingredients except milk in a bowl. Using electric mixer beat until smooth. Add milk until you get desired consistency.
1 cup frozen blueberries
4 cups cold milk
Thaw blueberries and puree in food processor.
Strain out liquid from blueberry puree.
Divide the strained liquid among 4 glasses. Top each glass with 1 cup of milk and stir.
