It’s time for the Wild Your Smoothie contest again! Last year, I tried wild blueberries for the first time as part of this contest! I learned that they have a much more vibrant flavor and they’re actually packed with more of those desirable antioxidants than their regular blueberry counterpart, you know those antioxidants that we love to get from fruit to help us stay illness free. This is why I just go for wild blueberries when I buy these frozen guys now…. and they’re soooo delicious!
Last year, I shared a delicious wild blueberry mojito smoothie. Oh boy how much has changed since then-including actually getting runner-up in the last Wild Blueberry contest! My delicious and way too easy wild blueberry mustard banked me an exciting win!
Here are a few other health facts about these frozen Wild Blueberries:
- They’ve got a more intense blueberry flavor (yaaassss!)
- They’ve got about 2x the antioxidants as regular ‘ole blueberries!
- They’ve got a bit less sugar than regular blueberries naturally do. Compound that on not needing as many, and you’ve got quite the combo!
Seriously, they’ll change your life. Check out Wild Blueberries for more info.
OK, on to the recipe:
