8 Great Ways to Enjoy Blueberries

8 Great Ways to Enjoy Blueberries

Rich in antioxidants, blueberries fight free radical damage and keep you younger longer. Research has found that blueberries can also reverse age related declines in motor function, balance, and coordination. There’s more: a single serving of blueberries gives you 25 percent of your daily quota of vitamin C.

Of course blueberries taste divine baked with muffins, crumbled into cobblers  and just on their own, but here are some simple ideas to help you create magic with these beautiful berries:

  • Melt some dark chocolate over blueberries. Dark chocolate has been found to improve memory and concentration!
  • Dot your salad with blueberries. Instant color + taste + health boost!
  • Give them a whirl in the blender with vanilla-flavored yogurt.
  • Pop some blueberries on your breakfast cereal. More power!
  • Try blueberry salsa. Jalapeno, lime juice, salt, basil leaves and blueberries. Yummy!
  • Tuck some blueberries into your French toast.
  • Add a few blueberries to a glass of fresh fruit juice or mocktail.
  • Dish up a delicious chilled blueberry soup—boil them with orange juice, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Cool and blend until smooth. Add half-and-half, and enjoy chilled.

Blueberries, especially picking wild blueberries while keeping an eye open for bears, are delicious. I have tried all of these, except for the blueberry salsa. It won't be too long before trying that delicious recipe.
