This blueberry salad is wonderful for breakfast or as a side dish for a barbecue or other gathering!

Lately, Mini Chef has been going through a phase where he “hates” all nuts, all of a sudden. I’m not sure what set off that particular quirk, but he insists it’s a thing.

An up close shot of this Clean Eating Almond Blueberry Salad in a white bowl. The blueberries are a vibrant blue and have little bits of almonds and lemon zest sprinkled across the top.

Now normally, I would respect my child’s likes and dislikes in the food department. But being the knowing mom that I am, I happen to know he actually loves nuts. Particularly in the form of marzipan. Anything that has a similar flavor to that makes him drool. (He’s definitely my kid!)

So I recently made him this fruit salad to go with his breakfast and I made sure to present it as being “blueberries with marzipan”. I’ve never seen a child jump up quite that quickly. He thought he won the lottery in the breakfast department.

Needless to say, he sucked down the entire bowl and very enthusiastically informed me that I could make that for him any time.

Glad my mom’s instincts are on point!

P.S. – If you like yogurt for breakfast, these would be amazing sprinkled over some plain, Greek yogurt. Or if you’re feeling really adventurous, try them over some whole grain toast!

    That is a wonderful way of eating blueberries. Adding these ingredients – I haven’t tried the vanilla so far- creates a great new taste.

  2. I’m sorry to say, but it does not taste good at all.
