I know, I know, technically autumn has arrived but if you’ve been in Toronto over the last week you wouldn’t know it; 30 degree days and nothing but sunshine as far as the eye can see. So just before I slip into my coziest sweater and start drinking pumpkin spiced everything, I’m sharing a recipe for my Wild Blueberry Smoothie that will transport your taste buds back to summer – no matter what time of year it is.
The inspiration for this delicious smoothie was a recent trip to Canada’s breathtaking East Coast with the amazing folks from President’s Choice.
About a dozen incredibly talented food enthusiasts from across the country joined us for an epic journey that included a tour of a salmon smokehouse that produces some of the best smoked salmon in the world…
A stunning breakfast featuring all of the NEW healthy but hearty offerings from PC Blue Menu…
AND a full holiday dinner with all the fixings!
Needless to say, it was a feast for the senses and I gladly ate EVERYTHING IN SIGHT!!
But the biggest highlight for me was the all-you-can-eat opportunity to pick fresh wild blueberries at one of the most gorgeous farms I’ve ever seen.
Wild Blueberries are abundant on the East Coast and are harvested through August and September. The best part is that they can be frozen almost immediately after picking and then enjoyed in everything from mimosas to sauces to smoothies year round.
If you’ve never tried wild blueberries before, you’re in for a treat. They are smaller than a traditional blueberry and have a more concentrated flavour that makes them exceptional in things like this incredible Wild Blueberry Smoothie…
WILD BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE
- ½ cup almond milk
- 1 cup PC Frozen Wild Blueberries
- 1 banana
- 2 tbsp quick oats
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy immediately!
I want to send a very special thanks to the lovely ladies at President’s Choice for the amazing experience. It was truly memorable and the FOOD was simply divine. I can’t wait to do it again soon! xo
