Blueberry season is winding down (real cry)! If you’re running short on ideas of what to do with the last of your dreamy berries, I GOTCHU. It’s been a minute since I did a recipe roundup – but oh how I love them! I’ve teamed up with some of my fabulous dietitian fraaands to bring you some deliciously healthy blueberry recipes.
Health Benefits of Blueberries
SCROLL ON if you DNC about the nerdiness of why bloobs are amazing. Blueberries may be small but they pack a lot of bang for their buck in the nutrition department. At just 80 calories per 1 cup serving, they are a good source of fiber, vitamin C and are high in manganese (1). Blueberries also contain an important class of phytonutrient called anthocyanins which give them their blue hue. A recent study, the longest randomized-controlled trial to date re: blueberry nutrition, showed a 15% reduction in cardiovascular disease risk in participants who ate one cup of blueberries a day (2). So, aside from being delish – they’re super nutrish.
