What We Have Done with All of Those Blueberries

A couple of weeks ago, the kids and I went blueberry picking. And came home with 9 pounds! I thought about making jam, or fruit leather, or just drying them, but I really like them just as they are... I decide to freeze about 2 pounds, and we have been eating up the rest.
Most have been eaten as is, but we have found some yummy recipes to incorporate them in to....

Blueberry Mojitos. Mine didn't look quite as fancy as the ones in the recipe, but it sure did taste good!

Blueberry Zucchini Muffins. I used the recipe I posted here, but I just made it into muffins. And added some ground flax seed as well.

This delicious lemon pound cake.  Seriously, it is good.

I have also been juicing the blueberries as well. My latest combo is blueberry-spinach-celery-cucumber-lemon. Yum! I didn't take a photo, but honestly, it doesn't look all that appealing. It is basically brown. But trust me, it tastes good.

Honestly, I feel like I need to go back and pick some more. Blueberries are some of my favorites. After 7 pounds of them, I thought I would be sick of them, but I'm not.

What's your favorite blueberry recipe?

  1. I use blueberries in morning smoothies as well - but my favorite way to eat them is just plan and raw. Yum!
