I’m trying to eat more blueberries, especially wild blueberries as recommended by Medical Medium (affiliate link) for healing various health issues.
And apart from my brain cleaning cilantro blueberry smoothie, I’ve been a bit stumped for variety in my blueberry recipes.
So I scoured the web, looking for healthy vegan blueberry recipes that I can try out.
I found a TON of muffin recipes, but they’re not really blueberry recipes in my book – just mostly floury cakey things with a hint of fruit.
But buried amongst the mountains of blueberry muffin recipes were other healthy vegan blueberry recipes that used LOTS of blueberries and mostly unprocessed ingredients.
If I’m being completely honest, I saved these recipes here for myself so I can easily find them later, but I’m hoping that you’ll find them useful too!
Here’s the best tasty – and healthy – vegan blueberry dishes that I found.
- Blueberry Banana Smoothie Bowl
- Blueberry Hemp Pear Porridge
- Quinoa Porridge with Hot Blueberry Drizzle
- Blueberry Chia Overnight Oats
- Blueberry Topped Baked Sweet Potato
- Blueberry Basil Salad Dressing
- Balsamic Blueberry Vinaigrette
- Vegan Blueberry Coconut Panna Cotta
- Raw Blueberry Cheesecake
- Blueberry Banana Ice Cream
- Banana Blueberry Bark
- Vegan Blueberry Coconut Popsicles
- Blueberry Mango Banana Popsicles
- Vanilla Blueberry Cashew Almond Snack Bars
- Blueberry Applesauce
- Almond Butter Lemon Blueberry Smoothie
- Cilantro Blueberry Detox Smoothie
I’ve focused on vegan blueberry recipes that use mostly whole food ingredients, and that are also (mostly) free from gluten, soy, refined sugar and salt.
So you should be able to find something to suit your dietary preferences in the list below.
Ingredients: Frozen bananas, blueberries, medjool dates, chia seeds, plant-based milk, (toppings) medjool dates, flaked coconut, fresh fruit, granola
Ready in: 10 minutes (if you already have frozen bananas and blueberries on hand)
I love how this smoothie bowl recipe uses heaps of blueberries and creates a really thick pudding.
If you don’t tolerate chia seeds well, you could swap them for ground flax seeds. And if you don’t like bananas, try using mango instead.
Ingredients: Oats, almond milk, blueberries, hemp seeds, fresh pear
Ready to eat in: 10 minutes
I like that this porridge recipe includes hemp seeds and lots of blueberries.
Although it is oat-based, it would be super easy to swap this out for rolled buckwheat or your favourite gluten-free porridge grain.
Ingredients: Quinoa, water, plant-based milk, star anise, cardamom, cinnamon, salt, almonds, dried apricots, blueberries (fresh or frozen), (toppings) coconut flakes
Ready to eat in: 25 minutes
I like the heartiness of this quinoa porridge, and also that it’s naturally gluten-free. I don’t have much experience cooking with cardamom or star anise, but I get the feeling they’d work well in this recipe. I’m thinking about using even more blueberries in this one though!
Although the recipe does use soy milk, you can use your favourite plant-based milk and it will be just fine, I’m sure. And if you’re trying to avoid preservatives, make sure you use sulphur-free dried apricots.
Ingredients: Oats, chia seeds, almond milk, maple syrup, blueberries, (toppings) almonds, pecans, coconut flakes
Ready to eat in: Four to twelve hours (preferably overnight)
I like that this recipe only has five ingredients, and that it’s so simple and quick to make (apart from the waiting).
To make this gluten-free, you could swap the rolled oats for rolled buckwheat (Update: Buckwheat doesn’t get soft enough using this method). And if you don’t tolerate chia seeds well, you could swap them for ground flax seeds.
You could also swap the maple syrup for whatever liquid sweetener you had on hand, such as agave nectar or coconut syrup. I’m also thinking about adding the blueberries at the start, rather than at the end, which might make for a rather purple dish! I might also add a dash of vanilla bean powder.
Lunch and dinner recipes
by Comfort Bites
Ingredients: Sweet potato, blueberries, maple syrup, vanilla, coconut yoghurt
Ready to eat in: 1 hour
This recipe intrigues me – partly because I want to find new ways to eat sweet potatoes, but also the idea of sweet toppings on what is ostensibly a vegetable.
I’d probably skip the coconut yoghurt, and maybe use a coconut or cashew cream instead, or maybe even a light cashew sour cream. But it looks good!
Ingredients: Blueberries, basil, lemon juice, sweetener, salt, pepper, onion powder, water
Ready to eat in: 5 minutes
Although this recipe is not a meal in itself, I like that it helps you to add blueberries to any salad. I also like that it’s oil-free, and I’m always looking for new and interesting salad dressings to spice things up.
I’d probably use agave nectar or coconut syrup as my sweetener, and I’d reduce the amounts of salt to make it lower in sodium.
Ingredients: Blueberries, balsamic vinegar, honey, lemon juice, salt, pepper, olive oil
Ready to eat in: 5 minutes
I love the idea of combining the tang of balsamic vinegar and lemon juice with the sweetness of blueberries and honey (or agave, or coconut syrup).
This is not technically a vegan recipe because of the honey, but you could swap that out for any liquid sweetener. Great for dressing up salads.
by Vegan Heaven
Ingredients: Coconut milk, vanilla bean, agar powder, agave nectar, blueberries
Ready to eat in: 4 1/2 hours
This recipe takes a little more fiddle than I would normally prefer, but it’s definitely one for special occasions. I like the use of coconut and blueberries, and it’s a pretty simple dish overall.
Ingredients: Walnuts, dates, cinnamon, salt, cashews, lemon juice, blueberries, coconut milk, coconut oil, honey or maple syrup, acai powder, vanilla powder
Ready to eat in: 12 hours
I like that this raw vegan cheesecake uses a fully blueberry top, and so uses heaps of blueberries. The colour is amazing!
Again, it’s probably more fiddle that I prefer for everyday cooking, but maybe it would be worth the effort at Christmas or on a birthday.
I’ve also found in recent times that the combination of cashews and coconut oil can sit quite heavily in my stomach, so I imagine small pieces of this would be best.
Ingredients: Frozen bananas, blueberries
Ready to eat in: 10 minutes (or 6 to 8 hours)
I love the simplicity of this recipe, and the speed. Just frozen bananas and blueberries to create this wonderfully purple creamy treat.
Ingredients: Frozen bananas, blueberries, vanilla bean powder
Ready to eat in: 4 to 6 hours
I like the sheer simplicity of this recipe, with basically just two ingredients – bananas and blueberries. This is one I’m definitely going to try!
Ingredients: Blueberries, lemon juice, cane sugar, coconut milk, maple syrup
Ready to eat in: 6 to 8 hours
I like this one because it combines blueberries and coconut milk. I’m not so keen on the cane sugar, and would probably swap this for agave nectar, coconut syrup or coconut sugar.
I also like the idea of blending everything together, so this might be more of an inspiration for my own blueberry coconut popsicle recipe.
Ingredients: Blueberries, banana, mango, spinach or kale, hemp seeds, chia seeds and almond milk
Ready to eat in: 6 to 12 hours (preferably overnight)
These vegan popsicles are packed with fruit and hidden healthy wholefood ingredients. A tasty treat for breakfast or any time of day.
If you don’t tolerate chia seeds well, you could swap them for ground flax seeds. And if you don’t like bananas, just add more mango.
Ingredients: Cashews, almonds, dried blueberries, almond meal, flaxseed (or chia or hemp), salt, vanilla bean seeds, brown rice syrup
Ready to eat in: 90 minutes
Although this recipe is baked and uses dried blueberries, I like that it includes flax or hemp seeds.
I’m not 100% sure about the brown rice syrup – I’d be tempted to find an even healthier option – but it’s a good start. You can also use just use vanilla bean powder for simplicity, and I’d probably skip the salt to keep it low sodium for my purposes.
Ingredients: Apples, blueberries, cinnamon
Ready to eat in: 3 hours (or 5 minutes)
I like the simplicity of this recipe, and given that I usually make raw apple sauce by blending apples in my Vitamix, I think you could do the same thing here. Super quick and easy!
Ingredients: Frozen banana, blueberries, soy or almond milk, almond butter, lemon juice, (optional) maple syrup or agave, lemon zest
Ready to eat in: 5 minutes
I like this smoothie recipe because it’s simple, balances sweet and tangy and includes almond butter for creaminess. I’d be tempted to add even more blueberries for maximum impact.
You could also make this nut-free by using rice or coconut milk, and using sunflower or pumpkin seed butter instead of almond.
by Eating Vibrantly (me!)
Ingredients: Coriander, banana, blueberries, orange, spirulina, water/ice
Ready in: 7 minutes
I had to include this recipe, because this is one of my favourite ways to add more blueberries to my diet.
And I like the fact that I’m also cleaning out toxins from my body at the same time!
