can you use frozen blueberries?
user michelle robinson michelleloveschocolate - Jul 5, 2012
how much milk do you need

Hi Michelle: It's 1/3 cup of milk. As far as frozen blueberries go, I imagine you can, though I have never tried. I don't think it would hurt it, I'd probably skip the flouring of the blueberries if they were frozen though.
