Blueberries, My Ice Cream Alternative!

Isn’t it perfect when a food is good and good for you?!? Blueberries are the perfect example. I wanted an “ice cream” alternative, especially on Monday nights, when I’m watching one of my favorite shows, Parenthood. It’s not hard for me to polish off a pint of Ben & Jerry’s………I had to find an alternative or this weight losing Nana would be gaining again. Can you say Chunky Monkey or Cherries Garcia??  NO, I mean, can you say BLUEBERRIES!!

Just read what the Blueberry Council has to say about the nutritional benefits of their sweet little berry. Good and good for you!

I bought a large container of fresh blueberries at Trader Joe’s and decided to try freezing them, for a straight from the freezer snack.

Freeze them single layer, then when completely frozen, transfer them into a freezer proof container with an airtight lid.

 

Straight from the freezer they are the perfect little snack.

Cold, frozen, sweet, tart, creamy, all rolled up into one little berry! Perfect little finger food, anytime of day!

 

I’d be kidding you all if I said, these were as good as that pint of Ben & Jerry’s, but given the health benefits, I think I’ll be choosing the blueberries!!
