Tasty Tuesday: Better With Blueberries

The blueberries have been plentiful this year and they started coming in early so we even have a bunch in the freezer.  Blueberries keep very well in the freezer and we like to pop’m out and eat them by the handful just as they are, but there are also so many yummy blueberry recipes available that I put together this roundup of a variety of different things to make with them.

1) Simple Blueberry Cobbler

This Simple Blueberry Cobbler recipe is my own guest post at $5 Dinners and it’s my go to dessert during blueberry season.  It’s delicious and very easy to make!

2) Blueberry Hand Pies

These Blueberry Hand Pies from Camille Styles look absolutely scrumptious and are great for creating individual servings or for eating on the go.

3) Blueberry Coffee Cake

Coffee cake is one of my all time favorite desserts and I can’t wait to try out this Blueberry Coffee Cake version from Joy of Baking.

4) Blueberry Marshmallows

You can buy gourmet flavored marshmallows online for about $1 a piece so I searched and found this fabulous Blueberry Marshmallow recipe from YumSugar.

5) Blueberry Sorbet

For the summer months especially I think this Blueberry Sorbet from Easy Paleo is a wonderful and tasty treat!  I know the kids are going to love this stuff!

6) Blueberry Power Smoothie

Beloved Green’s Blueberry Power Smoothie is a fabulous way to start any day!  What a perfect way to get up and go.

7) Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes

I could eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch or supper and these Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes look absolutely delicious!  I searched and found a recipe from Giada de Laurentiis at Food Network that I simply must try.
