So instead of complaining about the nasty texture--- and not eating them, my very simple solution is to FREEZE them. I load up when the fresh ones are on sale in the summer.... wash and bag them-- and for the next few months I have fresh-frozen blueberries anytime I want. Now I can say that I LOVE blueberries.
I love them in my morning cereal (whether cold, oatmeal, cream of wheat). In cold cereal I love that they start to freeze the milk and make a little slush. This way I get my 'Fruit-in' for the meal and get the added flavor and nutrients from blueberries. They are also great to grab a few to snack on when I get home from a long day while I am preparing dinner. No mush and very refreshing. So go grab some blueberries today!
Here are a few highlights about the nutritional benefits of Blueberries.
-Rich in Vitamin C (your Antioxidant powerhouse that may help in preventing cancer-causing cell damage)
-Very high in fiber (about 4 grams in just one cup)
-Low in calories (only about 80 calories in one cup)
- NO fat or cholesterol
