Chicken & Blueberry Pasta Salad

Yes, blueberries and pasta. The addition of poached chicken and feta cheese makes this dish into a light and satisfying summer supper that's also great for a potluck. If you already have some leftover chicken, skip Step 1 and add shredded chicken in Step 4.

Blueberry-Ricotta Pancakes

Serve these light pancakes with our Chunky Blueberry Sauce, maple syrup or honey. Sprinkling the berries on top of the cooking pancakes ensures even distribution. Keep finished pancakes warm in a 200°F oven, if desired, while cooking the rest.

Blueberry Ginger Bellini

Muddling is is a traditional bartending technique where herbs and/or fruit are crushed, releasing their full flavor into a cocktail. Here we muddle blueberries and ginger with sugar and lemon to add another dimension to our take on a bellini.

Blueberry Cupcakes

The “secret ingredient” in these coconut-infused blueberry cupcakes—mashed potatoes—gives the cake great texture, almost like pound cake. The fluffy frosting is just fun. Because it’s low in calories and fat, you can spread or pipe a generous amount on top of each cupcake to make them look extra festive. The frosting stiffens as it stands, so be sure to put it on the cupcakes right after you make it.

Banana-Blueberry Buttermilk Bread

The slight acidity of buttermilk tenderizes and moistens baked goods while allowing you to cut way back on butter or oils. Here, it also lends a slight tanginess to the winning combination of bananas and blueberries. To make muffins instead, see Muffin Variation.

Fresh blueberries are a joy to eat, especially straight from the berry patch in the summer. They burst with flavor, delivering a hit of sweetness to whatever dish you add them to. Super-nutritious, blueberries are rich in the cancer-fighting antioxidants anthocyanins and ellagic acid. Those antioxidants propel blueberries to the top of the list of fruits and vegetables that can destroy free radicals and counter the effects of aging. One cup of fresh blueberries has only 83 calories plus 3.5 mg fiber (12% daily value), 112 mg potassium and 14 mg vitamin C (25% dv). So don’t hold back your blueberry love—just pop 'em in your mouth, berry by berry, or try EatingWell's favorite blueberry recipes.
