Tired of the same old orange juice? Try this yummy variation!
Make and share this Maine Sunrise recipe from Food.com.
- 1⁄2 glass orange juice (I prefer Tropicana Pure Premium)
- 1⁄4 cup blueberries
- Sprinkle blueberries into 1/2 glass OJ.
- Microwave for 15 seconds, until the color from the blueberries starts to blend into the OJ.
I didn't read the instructions carefully, and I'm glad that I didn't. Instead of nuking the drink, I just gave it a whirl in the blender. The color is plug ugly, but the flavor is fantastic. Worth every super-expensive imported blueberry I could find in the country!
I used fresh squeezed orange juice to make mine. While the flavor was nice, I didn't get the "sunrise" effect I had thought would be there. I microwaved it for almost 30 seconds as I was waiting for the color to start blending into the OJ. Unfortunately, it didn't seem to happen and it made the OJ rather warm. I think next time I'll try mashing the blueberries slightly and then adding them to the juice to see if I could achieve the "sunrise" effect.
