One of my favorite ways to use frozen blueberries is in savory preparations. It’s easy to just think about blueberry smoothies, pancakes, oatmeal, etc. but the fruit actually pairs insanely well with savory foods, too.

Like guacamole! In this recipe, we’ve combined blueberries with creamy avocado, sweet roasted corn, fresh heirloom tomatoes, and lots of zesty spices for a really unique flavor combo that will send your taste buds soaring!

It tastes like summer in a bowl–all of the season’s freshest, juiciest produce in one insanely nutrient-dense dish.

In fact, this recipe is bursting with Vitamin C, Potassium and Folic Acid! Plus, tons of heart-healthy fats, fiber and antioxidants.

I got the idea to pair blueberries with corn from an incredible restaurant in Atlanta called Seven Lamps. They have a seasonal hand-made pasta dish that’s filled with sweet corn and blueberry puree and it was one of the most interesting and delicious plates I’ve ever tried.

That’s the beauty of blueberries–they’re so versatile and can add a perfect tart sweetness to any dish! This blueberry guacamole pairs well with tortilla chips (or honestly, just eaten by the spoonful….no judgement!) or as a topping for tacos (salmon and pork both go really well with blueberries).
