Have I finally reached my limit on breakfast food related posts, dear readers? I hope not, because today I want to post about what we’ve been having for breakfast around here for the past month: fresh blueberries.
On their own, blueberries are awesome, of course- not only are they considered one of the top “superfoods” nutritionally, they’ve got a flavor all their own, sweet and berry-esque and juicy and delicious. However, lately we’ve been having them in 2 amazing ways- which I share with you today:
Hooray for breakfast smoothies! Take 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, 1 cup milk (or soy milk, if you roll that way), 1/4 cup plain yogurt, and 3 tablespoons sugar, and whizz in a blender. Add ice if it’s a hot day. Pour into 2 large glasses, and dot with extra fresh blueberries.
Blueberry French Toast
I realize that French Toast, when prepared correctly, is perfect on its own (with some maple syrup, of course). But if you have some fresh blueberries around, try tossing in a few tablespoons per toast. Do it just before frying, so the blueberries are still a little crunchy and juicy. Heaven.
