Enjoy This Scrumptious Blueberry Pie!

Who doesn’t love blueberry pie? It’s easy to make and absolutely delicious, especially when you have a Mindful recipe.

Benefits of Blueberries

Blueberries are one of the most nutritional foods you can eat. Blueberries are potent antioxidants with vitamin C and vitamin K. Half cup of blueberries provides the antioxidant power of five servings of peas, carrots, apples, squash or broccoli. These delicious berries also have fiber and minerals like manganese. Blueberries are called “youth berries,” or “brain berries,” because they have been shown to improve motor skills and reverse age-related memory loss. Blueberries may also prevent cancer, protect the brain from stroke and reduce heart disease.  Each serving of this great blueberry pie is like visiting a “fountain of youth.”

Listed below is the recipe for Scrumptious Blueberry Pie.

  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • Generous dollops of butter
