Recipes & Nutrition Analysis for Blueberries

When buying blueberries, look for berries that are firm, dry, plump and smooth-skinned, with a silvery surface bloom and no leaves or stems. Size isn’t an indicator of maturity but color is – blueberries should be deep purple-blue to blue-black. (Reddish blueberries aren’t ripe, so they will taste a bit sour on their own, but they are fine to use in cooking and baking.)

Easy Ways to Add Blueberries to Your Diet:

  • Top your cereal, yogurt, salads, or pancakes with fresh or frozen blueberries.
  • Keep a bag of blueberries in the freezer for smoothies.
  • Toss blueberries into a leafy green salad.
  • Simply fill up a bowl with blueberries and nibble for a snack.
