You'll have noticed an influx of blueberry punnets in the shops recently, that's because they come alive in Summer, so they're currently at their tastiest. What better time than to include them in your cooking? They lend themselves to bakes and desserts, adding a fruity element and often a slight tanginess too. Of course breakfasts welcome blueberries too, adding a hefty helping of nutrients to muesli, muffins or pancakes.

Many of us don't need reason to eat these dark blue juicy little fruits, but blueberries offer incredible health benefits on top of their sweet taste. They have the most antioxidants of all fresh fruits, they have the ability to improve high blood pressure, and they have also been said to benefit brain function and memory loss.
