Blueberry (3 ingredients) July 4th Recipes

1. Blueberry Smoothie (or Ice Cream!)

So easy, 2-3 ingredients, endlessly refreshing! Can be eaten fresh as a smoothie or frozen for ice cream. The banana adds a lot to the ice cream texture! Oat milk is my favorite because of the creamy texture, and it’s nice to all stomachs and diet preferences!

YOU NEED:
– blender
– Frozen Blueberries
– Oat Milk (or your fave)
– Banana (optional, best for ice cream)

Add frozen blueberries to blender. Add oat milk until just covering the top of the blueberries. Blend to perfection!
Add (1) banana for heartier smoothies or ice cream. For ice cream, pour mixture into freezer-safe container and freeze for ~2 hours. 

2. patriot parfait

Fresh, light, and simple sweetness. Let your creative eye come through in the artistic presentation, and use raspberries for tartness and/or strawberries for sweetness to your taste. Who doesn’t like layers of fresh fruit and yogurt?!

YOU NEED:
– Raspberries and/or Strawberries
– Blueberries
– Yogurt (Vanilla for extra sweetness)
– Serving Glasses (individual)

Start with blueberries at the base of your glass, at least enough to cover the bottom and make a “floor” for the yogurt. A dollop of yogurt, and a red berry layer come next. Repeat till your glass is full! Best served fresh out of the fridge.

3. Flag Fruit Tray

Classic fruit tray gets a July 4th spin. Sure to be a crowd pleaser!

YOU NEED:
– Raspberries and/or Strawberries
– Blueberries
– Yogurt-covered Pretzels

Start by cutting your strawberries in half lengthwise (hot-dog style). Then arrange to your heart’s content! Blueberries are the American flag’s stars and rows of red fruit and yogurt-covered pretzels are the stripes. Add whatever is in-season!

It’s amazing all the things you can do with so few ingredients. Allow the fruits to take center stage this July 4th! 😊And share any of YOUR favorite recipes below or on our Facebook page.
FYI, Blueberried Alive! and The Farmstead Market are at Pearl Market every Tuesday and Friday with seasonal blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and more!
