Blueberry Basil Piraguas
Servings: 2
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 4 basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh mango, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 14-16 ice cubes
  1. Add the frozen blueberries and lime juice to a small pot, and cook over low heat for 5-6 minutes. Make sure to mash the blueberries with a large spoon or pestle as they're cooking to help release its juices.
  2. Once done, allow to cool, and add the cooked blueberries to a blender with the basil, mango, maple syrup, and water. Blend well into a smooth, consistent syrup. Set aside.
  3. Add the ice cubes to a food processor, and pulse for 15-20 seconds, or until the ice is grounded into fine ice.
  4. Scoop the shaved ice into two small bowls or cups/jars that are at least 8oz+. Don't pack the ice tightly into your serving cup. You want to make sure there's enough space for the syrup to penetrate.
  5. Add the homemade blueberry syrup onto the shaved ice, and let it drizzle all the way to the bottom and let it fill its way up to the rim. Enjoy immediately with a spoon or straw!
