Another Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy recipe redo! This time it’s their Gingery Blueberry Shortcake Sliders. I’m a sucker for anything with fruit, especially blueberries. We grow our own blueberries along our driveway right here in the suburbs….big, juicy, organic blueberries (because we prepared the soil really well when we planted them 10 years or so ago and we’ve done nothing to them since :). We get an abundance of blueberries in the middle of July and you can be sure I’ll be making this recipe when our berries are at their best. But if you don’t have access to fresh berries, you can use frozen as long as their berries only – not pre-sweetened. Don’t thaw them first.
Charli Cohen, our favorite Certified Personal Trainer and Nutritional Specialist, has outdone herself with this recipe. Check out her Healthy Whipped Cream Recipe - it’s one I’ll be adding to my cooking repertoire for sure! I’ve just discovered Greek Yogurt, I’m late on the Greek Yoghurt bandwagon I suppose, but it’s so versatile! I mix it half and half with mayonnaise in any recipe that calls for mayo to lighten it up. It’s so delicious! I’ve not grown fond of the taste of Greek Yogurt plain yet, but I do not taste it at all in recipes. You can also use her blueberry compote recipe on pancakes, shortcake, cake, ice cream, and more.
There are a few unusual ingredients in this recipe. Like Buttermilk Blend Powder. Organic Valley makes one and it can be used in smoothies and power shakes, cereals, oatmeal, recipes, and more. Another ingredient you may need to purchase ahead of time is crystallized ginger (aka candied ginger). You can also make your own. Here’s Alton Brown’s recipe for Candied Ginger.
