Healthy way to eat more blueberries

Blueberries may be small, but they pack a lot of nutritional punch into one little bite. While a cup of the little blues is only 84 calories, you’ll get 14 percent of your daily fiber and a boost of heart-helping antioxidants . And did we mention that they taste amazing?

          Now here I am going to show you the possibilities of the meals made with blueberries, if you like the heathy food as me, please follow here:
Breakfast

Banana Blueberry Muffins

Nothing is better than the smell of freshly baked banana bread in the morning. Nothing, that is, except banana bread in portable muffin form, packed with fresh blueberries! For an even healthier version, try using applesauce instead of butter

Oatmeal Blueberry Breakfast Pizookie

Is it okay to eat a giant cookie for breakfast? Of course—especially when it’s made with oat flour, cinnamon, flax, applesauce, and honey, and studded with blueberries. Slather plain Greek yogurt, peanut butter, and sliced banana on top and you’ve got a full-on breakfast pizza.

You’re never too old for a fruit rollup. This recipe puts an adult spin on the foot-long neon treat of your childhood, using rhubarb, strawberries, and of course, blueberries.

Lunch and Dinner

Vegetable Couscous With Wild Blueberries

This recipe calls for couscous, but it’s simple to sub in any of your favorite grains for a lighter take on pasta salad. The wild blueberries, zucchini, carrots, and chickpeas add antioxidants and protein. Cooking your grain in vegetable stock punches up the flavor. Our favorite grainy base? Quinoa or bulgur wheat.

Grilled Salmon With Blueberry-Chile Sauce

Salmon, blueberries, and hatch chiles might sound like a weird combo, but don’t knock it ’til you try it: Fruit and salmon are definitely friends—on your plate, that is. This sauce is made with blueberry jam and fresh blueberries.

Desserts

Frozen Blueberry Coconut PieBlueberry-Coconut Yogurt Pie

This frozen dessert looks really fancy, but (shh!) there are only four ingredients and it takes less than five minutes to assemble and pop into the freezer. It tastes decadent, but the filling is really only toasted coconut and vanilla Greek yogurt. Topping with blueberries makes them the star of the show.

Blueberry “Ice Cream” Sandwiches

Unknown-3

We love ice cream sandwiches made with cookies for dessert—it’s like two desserts for the price of one! In this recipe, the filling (more of a sherbet than an ice cream) is made with Greek yogurt, a bit of heavy cream, frozen blueberries,sugar, and lemon juice. Chocolate graham crackers serve as the “bread” for this creamy treat without adding too many extra calories.

Drink,Smoothies, and Cocktails

Superfoods Smoothie

Superfood Smoothie

Sure, blueberries are one of our favorite superfoods, but we aren’t opposed to consuming as many as possible in one cool beverage. Six of the ingredients in this smoothie are Greatist-approved superfoods (blueberries, Greek yogurt,spinach, green tea, pomegranate and ginger root), guaranteed to make it a healthy and delicious drink.

Blueberry Lemonade Sangria

Be careful with this sangria—it’ll cool you off and satisfy a sweet tooth so well that you’ll want to drink 10 of them! Try blueberry vodka instead of brandy to up the blueberry flavor.

Blueberry Mint Agua Fresca

If you need a drink to cool off without alcohol, we’ve got your back. Flavor your water with fresh blueberries, mint leaves, honey, and lemon juice. Simmering the mixture on the stove intensifies the flavors. (Just be sure to ice it down before indulging.)
