Our Superfood Recipes Series gathers up great recipes for the most amazing superfoods, inspiring you to add these healthy ingredients to any meal.

We already know blueberries are delicious. That should come as no surprise to anyone. But what might come as a surprise is how very good they are for you. Blueberries rank the highest out of any other fruit for antioxidants, which make them free-radical-fighting ninjas helping to keep heart disease and cancer at bay. One cup of blueberries is just 84 calories while providing 14% of your daily fiber and just shy of 25% of your daily vitamin C.

The best way to eat them while they're in season (which is from May to October, with the peak in July) is to simply snack on a handful. They're at their peak flavor and oh so good! You can toss a few onto morning cereal or granola, add some to a salad for a sweet punch, or have a bowlful for dessert. But there are plenty of ways to add them to any meal at any part of the day, and during any time of the year thanks to frozen and dried options. Here are some of our favorite recipes starring blueberries, from breakfast and lunch to drinks and dessert.
