Easy Recipes: Blueberries and Cream {Just Like The Boxcar Children}

blueberry recipes

If you are following our homeschool journey you know I’ve been on the lookout for some activities to go with our learning. One of the books we’re reading is The Boxcar Children. Let me just say, Nick and Luke are mesmerized with the characters of this book.

In one of the early chapters of the book, the children find a patch of blueberries. They have a special treat one evening by serving blueberries and milk. Nick and Luke thought it would be fun to try since they love blueberries.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup heavy cream, half and half or milk
  • sugar

Clean your fresh blueberries.

Toss them in a large bowl.

Pour the cream over the berries.

We used heavy whipping cream.   Yum!

Sprinkle with sugar- about 1-2 tablespoons.

I used raw Turbinado sugar leftover from some cupcakes I made a while back.

Gently stir to mix the cream, the berries and the sugar.

Serve it up into individual bowls and enjoy!

Your kids will love drinking the cream once they finish the berries.

    The Boxcar Children was my favorite book as a child…I read it so many times! It’s one of the books I insisted my children read…and they loved it also.
    Blueberries and Cream looks delicious….I’m going to make it for my daughters. We’ve had bananas and cream…also very good!
