There is a reason that blueberries are considered a "power food." One cup of blueberries has only about 82 calories, over 3 grams of fiber, one-third of the recommended daily requirement of vitamin C, and some potassium. They do not contain, however, much sodium or fat.
All of this makes the little blueberry a great fruit to include in your diet. My daughter absolutely loves blueberries, which means that I am always trying different ways of making them. This recipe for blueberry pudding will satisfy the tastes of any blueberry lover, while being a pudding that is actually healthy and can be a dessert that can be enjoyed without guilt.
This recipe will serve 6.
