Frozen or fresh?
I love the vibrant color that comes when full fat cream mixes with the berries. I absolutely love blueberries. They are just like bananas. Grab them and eat it fresh when at a farm. I end up eating blueberries on my way home fresh from the local vegetable market. They help me get an instant energy rush without relying on chocolate. They are great for anti-oxidants too. Also, the best anti aging remedy.
Best part about berries is they are full of color and flavor. Put it on your pavlova or your cake or a simple smoothie and enjoy! Eggless blueberry cake works great with coffee and if you want a cold treat the recipe below will just be it. You may use frozen or fresh blueberries to make this. Frozen berries are actually better they say. I love eating them fresh and storing some when they are in season. Storing them in food graded ziplock pouches helps me enjoy my smoothies even when they are not locally available.

You can make this recipe with any berry in season locally. Whether its raspberry or strawberries, blackberry or cranberries. Each has a burst of color and flavor once you put them in your mouth. Mix and match to make your own combination. Combine it with some cream to make your tub of bliss. You can also use frozen berries to make this recipe.
These tiny balls of flavor are great for a snack too. One must remember, they have a small shelf life even in a fridge. You may also dehydrate them in a dehydrator. Eat them as soon as you get them else you will end up losing many. Making a homemade dessert, helps me use all the left over berries at home. Just freeze them in a plastic tub if you cannot make it right away.
