Not too long ago I was hugging my favorite fat, avocado. Well it’s that time again, but I’ve moved on to blueberries for CCK’s Hug a Fruit month. I was trying to come up with a cute title for this post, and Pat suggested Batty for Blueberries. Because, as he put it, I look batty in my blueberry picture :-p
Picking a favorite fruit was really hard for me. I love kiwis, strawberries, raspberries, cherries and pineapple. It was a very tough race, but blueberries have been a recent favorite of mind. It is a staple in my morning oatmeal, which I take to work with me, and is often packed as an afternoon snack.
I’ve enjoyed blueberries in many of my “green monster” smoothies – a favorite combination is blueberries, strawberries and banana with spinach, flaxseed, vanilla syrup and splenda.
There was the time I tried to make blueberry waffles… they didn’t turn out so well, but they still tasted just fine.
My blueberry-lemon coffe cake turned out much, much better.
Oh, how I love my blueberries. What is your favorite fruit?
