Mother’s Day Blueberry Dessert


Robyn Openshaw, MSW - May 09, 2011 - This Post May Contain Affiliate Links


The more you eat raw food, the simpler it becomes. When I’m by myself, what I eat at home tends to be bare-bones, if I’m not in restaurants with friends. But when I have a Sunday dinner for my family, or a special occasion, I make it fancier. I’m not always the greatest at planning ahead, so sometimes I open the fridge and make something up, based on one ingredient I’d like to use.

Yesterday my two youngest kids made a lovely Mother’s Day dinner. I had a quick brainstorm about how to make the two pints of blueberries (currently in season) in the fridge into a dessert. Everyone gobbled it up!

    They look great! I will have to try it! Why is the mixture not red from the strawberries? Anytime I put strawberries or beets into something it turns pink or red…..

      It was only a few strawberries–beets turn it pink far more!

    Sounds delicious Robyn.

    What is the difference between Young Thai Coconut meat and standard coconuts? Can you substitute one for the other – can’t say I’ve seen the former for sale here in the UK.

    1. Robyn Openshaw, MSW says:

      Gill, find young Thai coconuts in an Asian store or health-food store. The hairy brown ones have hard meat and are not interchangeable. The young Thai meat can vary but generally is soft and you can scrape it out with a spoon.

    Robyn, My friend and I have tickets to your class in St. George this week. My friend now cannot go and I was wondering if my husband can use her tickets instead? If he shows up with her ticket will he be let in? Thanks!
