Calling all Blueberry Lovers…

Yes, this is the blueberry loving club…. and sometimes we can lure others to join….

One of my favorite aspects of summer is the berry season.  I have wonderful memories picking handfuls of berries and eating so many I don’t want to see another till next year.  Last week I picked purple mulberries with a friend, and luckily he had enough control to save a bowl full so we could make a smoothie. Here on the east coast, blueberries will hit their peak relatively soon. My favorite blueberry farm is Emery’s. (Check out Emerysfarm.com) A few years ago I left with a blueish purplish mouth, and tried to play the card- I saw the sign, I didn’t eat any, it’s lipstick .. ( SHHHhh!) 🙂

The list of blueberries health benefits gets longer every year, as more studies uncover the healing power of these good-tasting berries.

  • Urinary tract infections can be prevented by blueberries.
  • Blueberries help build strong bones.

So about luring others to unite in this love affair….. Here’s a secret recipe which works every time…. kid friendly too. 🙂

 

1 Pint of Clean Organic Blueberries

2 T Organic Honey

1-2 T Cacao Powder

1 T Cacao nibs

Optional Toppings:

Cashew pieces, Coconut shreds, dried fruits, goji, cacao butter pieces, any nut or seed, ect…

Place in a bowl and hand mix until coated thoroughly, adjusting to preferences or desires.

So I guess you could say we are uniting the blueberry lovers club with the chocolate lovers club… and who doesn’t love chocolate? Yippee!

 

“Your strength is not your ability to sell yourself. Your strength is your elevated spirit—when the face of a woman is so dynamic, so saintly, so pure and so nice, a man has no power to even speak. That’s the real strength of a woman.”

-Yogi Bhajan, 7/4/96

Namaste!
