Blueberries are my favorite fruit! They are easy to take on picnic. No peels. No need for slicing or digging out pits. My kids eat them by the handful. My kids love our annual blueberry picking tradition. It’s a cheap “kid’s outing” and we venutre out to the beautiful Oregon countryside. Plus you save more money utilizing U-pick especially if you want to a large quantity of berries!
Most our blueberries get eaten by the handful as a snack, with a meal, or put on cereal and oatmeal or in waffles. I did try a few blueberry recipes this year. All of these recipes were simple and used almost everything I already had in the house. I did not have to buy any special ingredients.
First we made Blueberry Heaven Smoothies. This was a good “kid friendly” smoothie because it has both apple juice and vanilla ice cream in it. The kids loved it!
Next I made blueberry mini muffins. These are the perfect snack for the car. They are less messy than regular muffins. I freezed a bunch to take on our upcoming road trip to Canada.
Last I made blueberry coffe cake. Perfect for a brunch of breakfast meeting. My kids ate this up too.
The blueberries are almost all gone! I wish we would have picked more. I might have to head out to the U-pick again before the season winds down.
I’m linking this up with Frugal Friday.
