10 Blueberry Recipes to Make This Summer

I loveeeee me some blueberries. And now that it’s June, we’re in peak domestic blueberry season!

Blueberries are awesome for a lot of reasons: They’re packed with cancer-fighting antioxidants and full of vitamins, including iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. Basically they’re full of good stuff that has been shown to help ward off heart disease, promote healthy digestion, maintain healthy bones, and lots more.

I find that a handful or two of blueberries is the perfect little something to eat while I’m waiting for my dinner to cook. I also often throw some of them on top of my cereal or smoothie bowls in the morning for a nutritional boost. While I love the fruit all on its own, I also love to incorporate it into recipes. Here are recipe ideas from myself and a few of my food blogging friends to try this summer while blueberries are at their peak!

1.) Baked Blueberry Coconut Oatmeal Bites. Made with oats, shredded coconut, almond butter, and hemp hearts, this is one of my recent recipes developed for Shape. They make for a great little bite or on-the-go breakfast!

2.) Blueberry Pistachio Coffee Cake via Cook Nourish Bliss. I have a hard time turning down a slice of delicious coffee cake, and this blueberry + pistachio combo sounds just too interesting to resist.

3.) Mixed Green Salad with Blueberries, Goat Cheese & Honeyed Walnut -n- Hemp Seed Clusters. This one’s an oldie but a goodie on the blog! I love these clusters so much, I think I might need to create another recipe with them sometime soon.

4.) Blueberry Chia Oatmeal Bars. These oat bars are great to make for a leisurely morning brunch!

5 Summery Recipe Obsessions

Hi strangers!

Long time no talk. I’m back in the United States after quite a whirlwind trip to Ireland, where I had such a blast. I will be sharing more about my trip with you soon, but today I want to talk about a few of my favorite recipes of the fleeting summer season.

Carlsbad dusk-July 2016

While a lot of Americans consider Labor Day the end of summer, the season officially ends in two weeks. I’m soaking up the last bit of summer, but I’m also looking forward to some cooler autumn-ish weather and all that comes with it (YAY for football season!). Today I thought I’d share a couple of my top favorite summery recipes. There’s still time to whip up these seasonal dishes, so let’s get to it!

Single Serving Recipe-Berry Banana Sorbet

I made this berry banana sorbet at least a few times a week all summer long. I love customizing it with toppings depending on whatever I’m in the mood for, and it’s a great post-workout meal.
