Blueberry Surprise!

The other day I was digging around in my freezer searching for a bag of edamame beans and came across a bag of blueberries.  I was so excited!!!  It was like Christmas….except for the fact that no one has ever given me a bag of frozen blueberries for Christmas, but you know what I mean!  This past Summer while at my Mom’s house we went blueberry picking in her backyard!!  My Mom, brother and I loaded up on the insect repellent and headed into the woods.  We ended up with so many blueberries I didn’t know what to do with them.  My daughter had not yet been introduced to solid food so I knew I wanted to freeze some for her……And apparently I forgot about them…..But it’s never too late for blueberries.

Here is an Un-Recipe for blueberries with cottage cheese.  It’s simple and it’s pretty, so I’m sharing it!

First, place the frozen blueberries in a small colander

Give them a little shower so they thaw quickly

Cottage Cheese Meet Blueberry, Blueberry Meet Cottage Cheese

For my 11 month old daughter, I blended the blueberries in the Magic Bullet…love that little machine!

I hardly had time to take another picture because my little girl loved it so much!

Jane at This Week for Dinner inspired me to post this un-recipe.

I like to wash berries before freezing them, that way I don’t have to worry about washing them later….sometimes I bake with frozen berries and there is no time for washing.  Here are the steps I took to freeze the fresh blueberries:

  • Remove all stems and wash the berries
  • Transfer to a cooling rack and allow to dry completely
  • Line a cookie sheet or large dish with a clean kitchen towel and place the berries on top
  • Move the berry party to the freezer and allow to freeze, then transfer to a zip top bag, label and done!

  1. Hi Whitney,
    I’m try to whip up some fruit smoothies for my 11 month old (well, she’s almost 11 months!). How did the cottage cheese sit in your little girl?

      She loves cottage cheese and we haven’t had any issues with diary. Plain whole fat yogurt is also great for the little ones.
