Blueberries are in season for a few short weeks, during the heat of summer in our area. Seek out flavorful low bush varieties at your local farmers’ markets – you’ll recognize them by their smaller size. They pack a punch of flavor and are more closely related to wild blueberries than conventional high bush varieties that you’ll find at the grocery stores.

Simply blend up fresh blueberries with a splash of citrus and ice, (fresh-squeezed orange, or lemon).
Or use frozen blueberries with orange juice.
Either way you’ll love it!
