My favorite summer berry is blueberries. They are sweet and plump. Every time we go to the grocery store I get a few packs of them. Although we usually just eat fresh blueberries without anything for breakfast and snacks (our lab even stole a container of blueberries off the coffee table the other day), I occasionally like to bake with them.
Blueberry muffins are nice, but they take time, and I’m so lazy. So this morning I decided to make some blueberry bread. When I started I decided I’d toss in some of the over ripe bananas on the counter too.
Instead of using sugar in this recipe, I used a healthy shake recipe from ViSalus, their Vi-Shape nutritional shake mix. It has a beautiful sweet flavor that works well as a substitute for sugar. Plus it’s loaded with lots of vitamins and minerals – a perfect way to start your day.
