What’s in season in Florida right now and absolutely tasty?
And what better way to celebrate these blue beauties than with a Florida Blueberry Smoothie. I must say that if you like Blueberries, then right now Florida is the place to be! April in Florida means fresh Blueberry season. In Florida, you can always find beautiful fresh produce in season every month of the year. And now, with our warmish spring happening, I’ve become rather fond of this thrilling, cool-me-down Blueberry Smoothie!
As always, Fresh from Florida produce is a great way to ensure that your family is getting great quality food. Blueberries are amazing little berries, they are high in antioxidants and are one of the few fruits that are native to North America. There have been so many studies done on the benefits of Blueberries it’s astounding, but one thing is evident through and through, they taste pretty amazing and are good for you!
Why not try some of the recipes found on Fresh From Florida. You will find the Blueberry Cheesecake, Blueberry cobbler, Berry Snack bars (YUM!), Blueberry Biscuit Cookies AND a gorgeous Blueberry Key Lime Pie all waiting for you to try! So go stock up on some Fresh from Florida Blueberries this month from your local produce grocer and live a little!
