Blueberries contain potent antioxidants that help reduce inflammation and may also curb the growth of cancer cells. Just 3.5 ounces provide the equivalent antioxidant capacity of five servings of some other fruits and vegetables. Gobble these sweet-tart spheres up by the handful -- a perfect summer snack -- or try them in these recipes.
Ground almonds in this tart's crust add heart-healthy omega-3s, while honey and brown sugar sweeten the filling.
The blueberry has more antioxidant value than almost any other food, including broccoli and kale, so it's a potent protector against heart-, brain-, and age-related maladies.
In this frozen drink, the delicate flavor of green tea helps mellow out the blueberries' strong flavor.
