Newfoundland and Labrador is known for its delicious wild blueberries. Many of you may have secret locations where you pick blueberries each year. Blueberries are a source of fibre and vitamin C, and are the highest in antioxidants among the most commonly eaten fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants help protect your cells and reduce disease risk. This simple Blueberry Coconut Bark recipe is super healthy to make with your freshly picked, tasty blueberries.
Blueberry Coconut Bark
- 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
- 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
- 3 Tbsp. chopped pistachios
- Blend coconut and coconut oil in a food processor or high-powered blender for 5-7 minutes until smooth.
- Scoop onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and press down, so that it’s smooth. It should fill up about 1/2 of the cookie sheet.
- Lightly press fresh blueberries and chopped pistachios into the bark.
- Put in the freezer for at least 2-3 hours. Break apart into large chunks for serving.
