It is a great year for blueberries in upper Michigan this summer. I decided to put some of the berries to good use and put together these blueberry muffins. These blueberry muffins are moist and delicious.

I think I went overboard with the blueberries a little bit, but no matter they are so good; but 1 cup would be just right. I also used Splenda instead of sugar.

Frozen Fruit Banana Split Recipe

 

I love it when the fresh fruit season gets here. The only problem is it doesn’t last long enough. So much of it ends up in the freezer. However; it is real easy to use fresh frozen fruit to make a topping for ice cream or for anything else you might need a fresh fruit topping for. Freeze the fruit in a zip lock freezer bang so you can pour out just what you need. The recipe here is just for the fruit topping. You can use any type of fruit you want to use and it should come out just fine For this Banana Split I used blueberries, strawberries and hot fudge in the center topping it with whip cream, mixed nuts and a black berry on top of each scoop. If you’re in the mood for a summer time treat, give this Frozen Fruit Banana Split Recipe a try. It’s Great! Enjoy
