National Blueberry Month is officially here, and the Penrose Apartments Blog is featuring five blueberry recipes to help you celebrate right here in South Arlington, VA.
For a while we were searching for an answer to the eternal question: is there really such a thing as a breakfast cookie? The answer is, unequivocally, yes. These Blueberry Muffin Cookies work great as a lunch dessert or a grab-and-go breakfast. You’ll love their soft, fresh taste.
Summer isn’t summer without at least one glass of fresh lemonade. Blueberry Lemonade is pretty easy to make, and it pairs well with a fresh garden salad or steak.
This recipe from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe is simple and makes a sweet finisher to any meal. All you will need is fresh or frozen blueberries, vanilla cake mix, butter, and buttermilk or milk. The result is similar to a cobbler and tastes amazing with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a generous dollop of whipped cream.
This is another breakfast recipe for anyone who has to deal with hectic mornings. Make these Baked Blueberry Oatmeal Cups on a Sunday night and enjoy them for the rest of the work week!
You can have this Blueberry Banana Protein Smoothie for breakfast or drink it after your next run or workout. Protein shakes can be heavy, powdery, and hard to swallow, but this recipe uses natural and fresh ingredients to make a light and healthy treat.
