What’s not to love about blueberries? This fresh and flavorful fruit is a superfood that just happens to be in peak season. Not only do blueberries provide us with strong antioxidants, they are high in fiber and low in calories. The vitamin-rich berries have lots of Vitamin C to boost immunity and polyphenols to help fight chrnoic diseases.

With that being said, we are ringing in National Blueberry Month with these delicious and fresh recipes for your family to try. From pizzas to popsicles, there are all types of dishes that the family will enjoy.
