This is part of an ongoing weekly series called Juicy Facts – learning the health benefits of foods we commonly eat and didn’t know were so amazing for us! Stroll down to learn some goodies and find some recipes for this week’s hot juicy fact!
Hey guys, and welcome to this week’s Juicy Fact! Today’s hot pocket is..
I think it’s time to boost up the blueberry baskets, don’t you?? And just a side tip for you, I have a blueberry tree – and it is super resilient (everything else died in my vegie patch this summer, but my blueberry tree thrived – no joke, it lived in Australian summer heat). If there is one plant I swear for you to have, it is a blueberry tree! haha.
Healthy Recipes for You!!
Each week as we introduce a new Juicy Fact, I’ll be sharing a few recipes with you so you can grab these benefits and go! I’ll be cooking these healthy treats myself and handing you some hints alongside so you can get the best out of each of them!
Are you ready for some blueberries!?
Just an FYI, these links are not affiliated. I have found these myself and tried them myself, for my own healthy benefits. I will not receive any entitlements or moolah for sharing with you 🙂
Chia and Blueberry Bliss Balls by La Gourmande
If you love bliss balls, you will love these! Full of healthy fats and energy boosting goodness, and they are purple too – super pretty. I didn’t grind my walnuts and almonds down completely, as I love a bit of a crunch, and these bliss balls definitely taste amazing with some crunch! Try them out!
Flourless Blueberry Banana Muffins by Making Thyme for Health
Now, I may go on a slight rant when I say this, but it is super hard to find a good clean muffin, that is rightfully an actual muffin, and not a soggy or hard bit of almond meal – truly. But, these blueberry muffins are to die for! They come out so nice and fluffy and the blueberries have just the right amount of tang – perfect for a quick breakfast – trust me.
Blueberry Pancake Smoothie by Greatist
This one is kid approved – Mister C loved it too. It is such a good balance of blueberry and banana, and ahh, need I say more! Whiz this one up in your blender pronto!
Juicy Fact complete!
So there’s your blueberry go to! Who knew they could help bust some cancer, and help out your heart too! Must be that blue power!
Seriously, you should go buy a blueberry tree (save you a bit of moolah too! hehe)
Next week, is a juicy food that I love dried more than I do fresh – tinned is good too, espesh with ice-cream! Can you guess what it is? #notpeaches
