roasted blueberry malted milkshakes
If there is anything I’ve learned from this summer, it’s that grilling and/or roasting fruit is an excellent idea (I hope I’ve learned more than that this season, but you know, I’ll take what I can get). Grilled watermelon? Come to mama. Grilled peaches? Total treat-yo-self business. Roasted strawberries? Uh-huh times a trillion.
But I digress. Because what I’m really here to tell you today is that roasted blueberries are and forevermore shall be one of the tastiest things to come out of my kitchen — second only to roasted blueberry malted milkshakes, that is.
This is serious deliciousness, you guys. These milkshakes don’t mess around. First you roast up some blueberries just until they burst — which, by the way, have now mixed with the sugar in the oven and have transformed into a light syrup that will blow.your.mind. Then, you combine them with a cup or so of Yoplait’s new Greek Frozen Yogurt Blueberry (equally mind-blowing, as are their other flavors), milk and malted milk powder and with a few pulses of the blender, you have a milkshake of epic proportions.
Oh, and I did I mention this thing is healthy, too? Totally a good excuse to drink one or three of these in a day, as I may or may not have done (I did).
Of course, the blueberries play really nice with other fruits, so if you feel the need to add grilled peaches or roasted strawberries to the mix, I am all over that. Be sure to invite me over if you do, though, OK? Because I seem to be all out of milkshakes over here (might have something to do with the aforementioned drinking of several of these in one day, I don’t know).
Roasted fruit + Yoplait Greek Frozen Yogurt + malted milk powder + milk = A very good idea. Do it.

Aww man! I seriously need more malt in my life, and this looks heavenly!!
As if the roasted blueberries weren’t good enough, you turned them in to a milk shake. Holy yum!! I need this!
FREAK OUT moment. I have to have these. Like, tonight. Also, I love that you included malt powder. Malts are totally under appreciated and the malt powder makes any shake that much more amazing. Cheers girl.
The color is stunning! I definitely need to try roasting blueberries now. And I love how you used Greek frozen yogurt. That must add such a nice tang.
I’m loving the malt powder touch, that stuff is brilliant! I’m sure it turns this milkshake into the best treat ever… I need one of this like right noww!! x
