This Dessert is Healthier Than You Think:

Blueberries are extremely healthy. Just one serving of blueberries, which is one cup, contains only 80 calories. They are also very high in vitamin C, and contain a healthy amount of fiber, vitamin A and potassium, as well. Blueberries are a great anti-oxidant which fights cancer and heart disease. According to MayoClinic.com, they are a great source of phytonutrients which are compounds that are good for the brain and enhance the memory, as well as, fight brain related diseases like Alzheimer’s disease. I used the “Heart Healthy Bisquick” that has less fat, carbohydrates, and calories than the regular kind. With the exception of the sugar, this recipe doesn’t just taste good, it is good for you. As far as the sugar, feel free to use less than the recipe calls for, or substitute it for a sugar free sweetener like Splenda. Personally, I found this recipe a bit on the sweet side, but my husband and neighbors thought it was perfect!
