Blueberry Juice

You can also prepare a delicious blueberry juice just by smashing a desired amount of blueberries (for example, you will obtain half of the weigh you use in juice) and them simply removing the remaining solids (wich you can use for further cooking).

I recomend mixing it 50:50 with orange juice, its a nectar.
