Strawberries are usually served with fruit dips. We need more blueberries for dipping! Don’t you agree? They are so gorgeous, look at those fat sweet beauties. The contest is asking for recipes made with blueberries, and one of the following: Balsamic Vinegar, Coconut, Rosemary, or Bananas. Here I have another love match for blueberries and coconut! I always wanted to be a matchmaker. They look cute together don’t they?
I decided to put blueberries together with a colada dip. Blueberries and Coconut, sweeeet.~ I have cream of coconut in the squeeze bottle which is great for flavoring recipes over the months. It has a long shelf life store in the fridge. This recipe is super easy and great for entertaining in winter or summer!
