We love our Orchard Gold Supreme Blueberries. How could you not with these great health benefits?!
According to new research out of the U.S., Blueberries have even more great health benefits. the clinical trial showed that eating a cup of Blueberries, every day, can help to reduce your blood pressure and arterial stiffness.
Arterial stiffness, often developed from hypertension, can lead to cardiovascular problems further down the line.
In addtion to their low GI index and high antioxidant benefits, did we really need another reason to dive into some Blueberries?
You can use your Orchard Gold Supreme Blueberries to flavour you morning porridge, surprise your children with a homemade blueberry muffin in their lunches, or better yet, eat the Blueberries as a healthy snack, straight from the packet!

Here is a fun and easy ANZAC Blueberry Muffin recipe for the long weekend!
This recipe makes about 18 muffins.
1 cup standard flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1 cup soft brown sugar
1 cup Orchard Gold Supreme Blueberries
60g melted butter
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup golden syrup
Preheat your oven to 190 degrees and grease/line muffin trays.
In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, coconut, oats, wholemeal flour, brown sugar and stir in the blueberries.
In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and then stir in the butter, milk, baking soda and golden syrup.
Fold the wet ingredients into the dry. Mix very gently until just combined and spoon into muffin trays.
Bake for about 12-15 mins (depending on your oven), until golden and the top of the muffins spring back when gently pushed.
A great morning tea dish to serve and they also freeze well, so you can pop them in the kids lunches during the week!
Have a happy long weekend!
