Berry Blast Glaze

Posted on April 07, 2018 by Anne Milneck

Berry Blast Herbal Tea is a sweet-tart, magical elixir that keeps us coming back for more. Store Staffer Cameron was intrigued by this re-steepable tea and recommends it as a post-workout, sports drink alternative. If you're not working out and would prefer to eat a doughnut, he's got you covered there, too. Check out his Berry Blast Glazed doughnuts here in his latest blog post.
Ingredients:
3/4 fresh or frozen blueberries
1 cup prepared Berry Blast Tea (you'll need 1 ounce of tea)
Zest of 1 lemon
2-3 c powdered sugar (amount could very due to how large the blueberries are)
1 Tbl hibiscus flowers
Directions:
In a small sauce pan, heat blueberries, 3 Tbl prepared Berry Blast Tea and lemon zest. Cook until blueberries release their juice and become a thick syrup. Set aside and let cool.
In a spice grinder, blitz the hibiscus flowers until they become a powder. It should resemble purple powdered sugar. (If you do not have a spice grinder at home, we can grind this in house for you!) Once the blueberry mixture has cooled, pour it in a food processor or blender along with the ground hibiscus flower powder. Add a 1/2 c powdered sugar at a time, pulsing between each addition, until you have reach a thick glaze consistency. It should still be loose, but when you dip a spoon into the glaze and drag your finger through it, a distinct valley should remain where you dragged your finger. 
Use this glaze on shortbread cookies, pound cake or warm, fresh from the fryer doughnuts
Yield: 1 1/2 c
