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!
Rather than letting it sit there, I have decided to select a recipe each month and share it with you all. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
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

Rebecca…thank you for trying some recipes from Maryrose’s extensive collection! I loved the photo of all the loose recipes in the plastic bag! She was an awesome cook and loved to experiment with recipes she discovered in various newspapers and magazines. Glad to hear the smoothie was a hit! See you soon! Moe C
