Blueberry Recipes part 2

Here we are again!  It’s still raining blueberries at our house, and I’m happy to say that I am not sick of them yet!  It has been fun to throw them in salads, desserts, and now…BREAKFAST!  I was feeling lazy on Sunday night and thought breakfast would do for dinner, so that’s just what we did.  I found about the simplest idea for blueberry syrup out there, and it turned out fabulously and was done in 5 or 6 minutes!

Blueberry Syrup

1/2 cup maple syrup

  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries

Put the syrup and blueberries into a pan and bring to the boil.

Let bubble for 2 to 3 minutes, and then pour into a jug and bring to the breakfast table with the pancakes.

Next up, a lite dessert that can be thrown together in a matter of minutes…the hardest part is waiting for it to sit and get delicious!  Try this before summer ends 🙂

Easy Summer Berry Icebox Cake

1 Box Graham Crackers 

1 12 oz tub of cool whip 

1 lb strawberries sliced 

1 pint blueberries
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips or Chocolate Magic Shell Topping.

In an 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish spread a thin layer of cool whip. Then place a single layer of graham cracker squares on top. Then cover them with another layer of cool whip, then place some strawberries and blueberries on top.

Continue to layer graham crackers cool whip and fruit until you have 3 or 4 layers.

Arrange the fruit on the top layer nicely and then drizzle with the melted chocolate chips, or Chocolate Magic Shell Topping.

Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving (I thought letting it sit overnight was much better).
