As some of you may know we bought the blueberry farm 2 years ago from the Cote’s who had started it about 20 years ago. MaryRose Cote had been collecting blueberry recipes for years. This past blueberry season I was given the whole collection and it’s HUGE!
For my first recipe I decided to make something easy. It was also very hot today (90 degrees) so I thought a cool refreshing smoothie would be great! Now, I’m not a big smoothie drinker but this turned out pretty good.
There are only 4 ingredients. For the vanilla yogurt I used local yogurt from Huckins farm. I couldn’t find any pineapple/orange juice or pineapple/orange/strawberry juice so I went with straight pineapple juice. The blueberries were frozen and I didn’t thaw them, I did wash them and take out any stems.
I put the yogurt, pineapple juice, sugar and blueberries into a blender and blended until smooth.
Time to drink up! Rick loved it and wants me to make it again.
Here’s the recipe…
2 quarts frozen blueberries, slightly thawed; or 2 quarts fresh blueberries
1 quart pineapple-orange-strawberry juice blend; or pineapple-orange juice
1 quart low fat vanilla yogurt
8 tsp. sugar
1. In a container of an electric blender; combine blueberries, juice, yogurt and sugar
2. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute.
3. Serve immediately in tall glasses.
4. Garnish with blueberry skewers spiraled with thin strips of orange peel, if desired.
Yield: 2 portions
