Happy Blue Year! 7 ways to eat blueberries in 2018


Plump, juicy and sweet Chilean blueberries are ripe and ready to eat! You’ll be seeing these blueberries in our stores this January, so we wanted to give you a few new ideas to eat your blueberries.



Prep your favorite oatmeal or make overnight oats and top with fresh blueberries. Jazz it up a bit by adding sliced almonds and a dollop of almond butter or sliced banana and chopped walnuts.

Blueberries add a boost of nutrition and flavor to muffins and other breakfast options (think French toast and pancakes). You’ll definitely want to try our recipes for Avocado Blueberry Muffins and Oatmeal Blueberry Breakfast Cakes.

Fruit salsa, anyone? Add fresh blueberries to your favorite salsa recipes. They would be a perfect addition to our Red, White & Blue Salsa.

Dessert is good. Dessert topped with blueberries is even better. We love this Dark Chocolate Pudding recipe topped with blueberries. And, you can’t go wrong with blueberries on our to-die-for Fruit Pizza recipe.

Sandwiches and Wraps

Cheese and blueberries just go together. If you’re a grilled cheese fan, try adding blueberries to the classic sandwich with this recipe for Balsamic Blueberry Grilled Cheese. Prefer wraps? Add blueberries to these breakfast wraps.
