Happy Hanukkah! Blue and white from Trader Joe’s

7 Dec

Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, begins at sundown on Saturday, Dec. 8. While Christmas is identified with the traditional green-and-red combo, blue and white is the Hanukkah color scheme.

To celebrate Hanukkah (or Chanukah) in a healthy and appropriately hued way, combine one part blueberries to one part milk.

A tasty tribute to Hanukkah: Blueberries and milk.

L’chaim (to life) and shalom (peace)!

Thank you, Trader Joe’s!

And thank you for visiting Things I Love at Trader Joe’s!

Note: While researching for this post, I found mention that milk minimizes the anti-oxidant benefits of blueberries! Sadness. Skim is better than 2 percent or whole milk. I didn’t find anything conclusively for or against substituting a cow’s milk alternative, such as coconut, almond or soy milk.
