Not all healthy blueberry recipes are sweet. We’re wild about the well-balanced flavors in this good-for-you grilled dinner that contains oodles of berries in the sauce and the topping. Word to the wise: Make a double batch of the Blueberry Corn Salad—you’ll want to scoop it up with tortilla chips on the side. (Yes, it’s that good!)
Cottage Cheese Pancakes
Wake up to a short stack that has a nutritional boost. These healthy blueberry pancakes will keep you full for hours thanks to unexpected protein from cottage cheese (a surprising metabolism-booster!). That hidden ingredient also makes the pancake batter uber-creamy when mixed.
Test Kitchen Tip: Pour a pancake onto your skillet or griddle, then sprinkle extra fresh blueberries into the batter for a bonus fruit punch.

Berry Tart with Lemon Cookie Crust
Blueberry Corn Orzo Salad
Dig into a beautiful spin on pasta salad with this healthy blueberry recipe. Instead of larger cuts of noodles, try it with quick-cooking orzo and colorful summer ingredients. Ripe blueberries add plenty of fresh, juicy flavor to each bite, and you’ll love the slight tanginess from the feta.
Whole Wheat Chocolate-Blueberry Cake
Blueberry cake recipes don’t have to be full of refined carbs. This chocoholic-pleasing dessert is crafted with all whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose for more fiber and protein. In addition to the berries on top, even more fruit is blended into the batter so the blueberry flavor can really shine.
Every last bite of this gorgeous, fruity focaccia tastes like summer. The juicy blueberries and sweet peaches bake with homemade bread until they're just soft. Slice up this healthy blueberry bread at your next get-together, or keep it for yourself—at just 113 calories per serving, you might not want to share.
Lemon Blueberry Muffins
This is sure to become your go-to healthy blueberry muffin recipe. Nonfat yogurt lightens up the batter to make it taste like it came fresh from a bakery. Savor these muffins all summer with fresh berries, then transition the treats to cooler seasons by using frozen berries.
Turkey Burger with Peaches and Blueberries
Dress up a healthy blueberry pancake breakfast with fresh berries and ricotta cheese—all while sticking to your healthy meal plan. At just 3 grams of fat and 72 calories per serving, this is a better-for-you breakfast you'll be excited to bring to the table.
Tip: Top your pancakes with warmed-up low-sugar jam instead of syrup to avoid the sugar rush (and extra calories).
Sugar-Free Blueberry-Strawberry Jam
Make a graham cracker or piece of cornbread taste like healthy blueberry pie with a thick layer of this no-sugar-added berry jam. When fruit is in season, the natural sugars make this spread plenty sweet on its own with a dash of cinnamon and squeeze of lemon to add a little flavor contrast.
Lemon Blueberry Corn Cake
We’re calling it: Lemon and blueberry are the next PB & J. In this blueberry cake recipe, we pair the refreshing duo with cornmeal, which adds more protein and vitamins than regular flour. Greek yogurt keeps the texture nice and moist and cranks up the protein, too.
Corn and Blueberry Salad
Make the most of summer's sweet corn crop by turning it into a crunchy and colorful side salad. Sweet blueberries complement bold red onion, and a honey-lime dressing adds just the right amount of zip.
Test Kitchen Tip: Prep this healthy blueberry recipe in advance for even more flavor. Simply mix the ingredients with the dressing, then chill for up to 24 hours.
Blueberry Sunrise Smoothie
Make early mornings easier (well, at least a little) with a quick and healthy blueberry smoothie. It's packed with vitamins, minerals, and 9 grams of protein. The crazy-sounding-but-actually-amazing key? A scrambled egg that you puree with the fruit and yogurt for a breakfast recipe that has true staying power.
Spice-Rubbed Grouper with Berry Salad
Say goodbye to run-of-the-mill weeknight dinners with help from low-fat, quick-cooking grouper—a whitefish with light flavor. Blueberries add a pop of sweetness to the bulgur salad for a 30-minute healthy blueberry recipe that's full of nutrients and flavor.
Test Kitchen Tip: Can’t find or don’t love grouper? Halibut makes a great substitute.
Cajun Turkey and Fresh Melon Salad
A dash of bold Cajun seasoning on turkey tenderloins turns up the heat in this protein-packed sweet and savory blueberry recipe. Ripe, juicy blueberries add irresistible flavor and beautiful color (plus a helping of antioxidants) to each plate.
Test Kitchen Tip: Mix up your meats! This entree tastes great with grilled chicken or steak in place of the turkey.
You can toss together a homemade 89-calorie blueberry recipe in just 20 minutes. Blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries add delicious sweetness to the crisp greens and creamy coconut salad dressing.
Sweet Beet Veggie Smoothie
You can't "beet" this healthy blueberry smoothie that’s hiding a dose of veggies. Pomegranate juice (here’s how to juice this seed-filled fruit at home) and a squeeze of honey sweeten things up. Picky eaters will never guess that vitamin-rich chard and beets are the secret ingredients that give this vitamin-loaded snack its deep, dramatic color.
Peanut Butter-Banana Overnight Oatmeal
Take 10 minutes before bed to assemble a healthy breakfast for tomorrow. Combine oats, milk, (dairy or non-dairy), yogurt, banana, honey, and chia or flax seeds in a Mason jar and refrigerate overnight. Come morning, top with fresh berries, bananas, and granola for a nutritious meal that tastes like healthy blueberry crisp!
Italian Fruit Salad
There's a lot to love about this simple toss-and-go fruit salad that's made with fresh blueberries, watermelon, and grapes. A drizzle of honey-balsamic vinaigrette dressing makes the fruit taste even sweeter. Best of all, each serving of this healthy blueberry recipe clocks in at just 91 calories.
Brighten up your morning with a batch of these warmly spiced, healthy blueberry muffins. The blend of cake flour and bread flour makes them extra-light and fluffy, and a hint of molasses sweetens without too much added sugar. Dust with powdered sugar before serving for a pretty finishing touch.
