For a fresh, healthy start to the day or a refreshing pick-me-up, try this blueberry banana smoothie. It couldn't be easier to make with just three ingredients—nonfat plain yogurt, banana, and frozen blueberries. Use a ripe banana for more sweetness, or swap the frozen blueberries for the same amount of your favorite frozen fruit.
Three pints of fresh blueberries go into this juicy, lightly sweetened fruit crisp. Use oats, chopped nuts, or some of each to add texture and crunch to the sweet, buttery topping. And be sure to serve this delightful summer dessert with scoops of vanilla ice cream or dollops of whipped cream.
These blueberry cupcakes are breakfast for dessert. Fresh blueberries are mixed into vanilla cake -- rather than muffin -- batter, which is then topped with cinnamon streusel and swirls of blueberry-cream cheese icing. This recipe appeared in episode 308 of Martha Bakes.
Easy Mini Pavlovas
Consider a pavlova bar for your next party, with individual meringue shells, whipped cream, and fresh seasonal fruit (here, we've used blueberries brightened with a touch of lemon zest). Your guests will love assembling their own desserts.
A cup of quick-cooking oats makes these moist muffins even more substantial. A touch of spicy cinnamon in the batter pairs nicely with the sweet, juicy blueberries.
