Chokeberry may cause a sensation of choking because of its bitter taste. That is why people freeze them before eating. Despite of this inconvenience (even after freezing they are not sweet), it is worth eating to make heart stronger. My grandmum has a whole field of chokeberries. She makes preserves. Chokeberry cake or muffins must be a good idea, too. I made chokeberry milkshake.

1 cup milk
1 cup strawberry ice cream
1/2 cup chokeberries
sugar to taste

1. Cook chokeberries in 1/2 cup water for about 10 minutes. Drain and blend with milk. Rub through a sieve and sweeten if you need to.

2. Blend with ice cream and... consume :)
