Fruit of the Month: March

2nd March 2017
Fruit of the Month: March

This month, we're focusing on Blueberries!

Renowned for their high levels of anti-oxidants and superfood powers, the blueberry is regarded as one of the most popular fruits. Whether you choose to snack on blueberries alone or add them to your recipes, blueberries offer a sweet hit without the unhealthy effects of sugary snacks.

Find out how to make the most of your overripe blueberries with the following delicious recipes.

Overnight oats

The ultimate solution to that ‘no time for breakfast’ routine, overnight oats can be made the night before. Simply combine oats, your choice of milk, a pinch of cinnamon, a splash of honey and some blueberries in a jar and leave in the fridge overnight. In the morning, simply eat from the jar for the perfect breakfast on the go.

Summer fruit smoothie

For a deliciously healthy drink, combine blueberries with raspberries, blackberries, a banana, plain yoghurt, milk and a pinch of icing sugar and blend. Pour into your favourite glass and enjoy!

Blueberry and lemon muffins

To add a sharp and sweet kick to a batch of muffins, add a large handful of blueberries and a squeeze of lemon the mixture and stir before putting in the oven.

Blueberry jam

Blueberry jam is a versatile spread – great on toast and delicious swirled in your morning porridge. To make it, simply stir blueberries, lemon juice, sugar and water over a high heat and leave to simmer until thickened. Once completely cooled and sticky, decant into a jar and store in the fridge.

Blueberry milkshake

For the ultimate twist on a childhood favourite, why not add blueberries to your milkshake instead of strawberries? Simply blueberries, a splash of honey, milk and a scoop of vanilla ice cream and pour into a milkshake glass for a sweet treat!
