Fresh Oregon blueberries are one of the joys of summer and Oregon Farmers Markets and U-Pick Farms are open for business! 

Thanks to our farmers, Oregon is among the top producing states for blueberries in the nation, harvesting around 150 million pounds each year with some of the best quality and highest blueberry yields in the world – giving a boost to Oregon’s economy in the process. Each year, Oregon blueberry growers provide the equivalent of 3,505 jobs and infuse $353.5 million dollars into Oregon’s economy. 

Oregon blueberries not only give a boost to our economy, they’re also an excellent way to boost our immune systems too. Blueberries carry four essential nutrients including vitamin c, vitamin k, manganese and fiber – just one cup of blueberries contains a whopping 25% of our daily requirement of vitamin c supporting our immune health and necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues; they’re loaded with 36% of our daily value of vitamin k which assists in blood clotting and works with calcium to build strong bones; 25% of our daily requirement of manganese which is essential for normal brain and nerve function and plays a role in fat and carbohydrate metabolism, calcium absorption, and blood sugar regulation; and blueberries help us meet our daily fiber requirement aiding in a healthy digestive system. 

For these reasons alone it’s no wonder blueberries are considered a Super Food but there’s more! Blueberries contain anthocyanin – it’s what gives blueberries their color – which are cell-protecting antioxidants associated with reducing the risk of cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. And aside from their Super Food properties, one cup of blueberries contains only 80 calories. 

Thanks to over 350 blueberry growers in Oregon we’re able to enjoy the delightful experience of eating blueberries all year round. So grab some fresh, frozen or dried blueberries grown right here in our home state to whip up these incredibly delicious Oregon blueberry recipes. Your heart, brain and other body parts will thank you.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh Oregon blueberries

  • 1 cup Vanilla Greek yogurt

  • 3 1/2 tsp. Lime zest, divided (1/2 tsp. in yogurt mixture. 1/8 tsp on top of each finished Key Lime Blueberry Yogurt Bite)

  • 1-2 12oz bags white chocolate chips

Preparation

  • To make these bites, start by washing your blueberries and drying them well, adding them to a mixing bowl once they’re cleaned.
  • Next, add your vanilla Greek yogurt to the bowl and 1/2 teaspoon of lime zest and gently fold until the blueberries are fully coated in the yogurt.
  • Scoop your blueberries into 1 Tablespoon size scoops and place them onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and freeze for 20 minutes.
  • Once your blueberries are frozen, in a separate small bowl, add your white chocolate chips and melt in a microwave safe dish on 50% power (or your defrost setting) for 30-second increments until it’s completely smooth. Be sure to stir between increments so your white chocolate doesn’t overheat.
  • Once your white chocolate is melted, remove your tray of blueberries from the freezer and drizzle a spoonful of white chocolate over each cluster then immediately add 1/8 tsp of lime zest to the top. The white chocolate will quickly form a shell on top of each one so you’ll want to be sure to get that zest on top before the shell hardens.
  • Place back in the freezer for approximately 10 minutes or until white chocolate fully hardens. Remove from freezer 5 minutes before serving for ultimate texture. Enjoy!
