I have a crush. And its on… the blueberry. To my utter disappointment, this plump of goodness usually streams through the produce aisle for a split second. But as the produce industry lunges beyond our borders to meet consumer demands, I’m giddy as a fiddle about enjoying this berry component a tad bit earlier this season. Before, that is, its traces are left in the freezer section; which is simply an injustice to this tarting fruit, if you ask me.
At the other end of the market, is blueberry’s partner in crime… yogurt. It’s thick, creamy, and couples deliciously with fruit and honey.
So one fine day, I pulled out my blender and scooped up some dairy-aisle goodness and went to work. What did I end up with? An all-natural, rich, and fulfilling smoothie. That took literally five minutes and a blender to complete.
Topped with unaltered heaves of blueberry, my girls and I had a cool down show-down to remember. So what in the world went in that blender to stir up my afternoon? Give it a try before the season flies by.
