Blueberry Sauce

Ingredients:
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/4 cup water
1 cup orange juice
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup cold water
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preparation:
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the blueberries, 1/4 cup of water, orange juice, and sugar. Stir gently, and bring to a boil.

In a cup or small bowl, mix together the cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water. Gently stir the cornstarch mixture into the blueberries so as not to mash the berries. Simmer gently until thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the almond extract and cinnamon. Thin sauce with water if it is too thick for your liking.

Looking for a fun & healthy summer recipe that everyone will love? Try these frozen wild blueberry swirl yogurt pops:

2 cups wild blueberries
2 Tablespoons maple syrup or honey
2 cups vanilla Greek yogurt (or any flavor)

Puree the blueberries in a blender until you get a smoothie-like consistency then stir in the honey or syrup. Next, fold in the yogurt to achieve a tie-die look to your mixture. You might also choose to fold in some extra whole berries.

Pour the mixture into popsicle molds.

Note: if your molds don't have popsicle stick slots, freeze for 2 hours then insert the stick and freeze again for another 4-6 hours.

Run the mold under warm water to remove easily and enjoy on a hot day (like this week!).
