Summer is my least favourite season, but one thing I do love about it is the abundance of berries. There is just something so summery about tucking into a bowl of refreshing blueberries, blackberries or cherries! But just in case you are sick of eating them plain (can you ever be sick of that?!), then here are four more ways you can enjoy them.
4 Ways with Blueberries
- Mash and fold into spreadable cream cheese and top bagels or English Muffins with the mix for fun and fruity "purple" bagels.
- Toss with washed baby spinach, chopped chicken breast, crumbled goats cheese or feta and raspberry vinaigrette for a quick and easy lunch full of antioxidants.
- Add to any muffin or quick bread recipe. Blueberries are great with banana bread or muffins.
- Make a quick blueberry sauce: simmer 1 cup blueberries with 3 tbs water, 1/4 cup honey and a squeeze of lemon juice for 10 minutes. Stir in another cup of blueberries and simmer for 5 more minutes. Perfect with icecream or waffles (or both!)
