Did you love berries as much as we do? We are READY to celebrate summer with 20 berry delicious recipes from the #BlogHealthy Community!

Mixed Berry Oatmeal Jam Bars from Savory + Savvy // Super simple Mixed Berry Oatmeal Jam Bars are everything you would think of in a summer dessert! Fresh fruit that is quickly made into your own homemade jam makes these jam bars delish! This is an incredible recipe if you want to give friends and neighbors a homemade gift! 

Berry Compote from Sunday Supper Movement // Enjoy this quick, easy, and versatile berry compote recipe on its own or as a topping for breakfast or dessert! Mixed berry compote only uses three simple ingredients and is easy to make in under 30 minutes. Use it as a topping for waffles or oatmeal, or even with yogurt, ice cream, or cake!

Cucumber Watermelon Strawberry Salad from Running in a Skirt // Summer in a bowl!  My Cucumber Watermelon Strawberry Salad recipe is the perfect recipe for the season.

Raw Vegan Blueberry Pie from Dianne’s Vegan Kitchen // Healthy Raw Vegan Blueberry Pie is the ultimate summertime dessert. This easy, no-bake blueberry pie recipe doesn’t require an oven, so it’s ideal for the hot summer months, when the last thing you want to do is heat up your kitchen with a hot stove. The filling made with fresh blueberries and bananas, and it comes together super quickly. I like to serve it with a dollop of vanilla cashew cream.

Strawberry Spinach Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing from Dietitian Debbie Dishes // Savor the flavors of summer with this vegan strawberry spinach salad topped with lemon poppyseed dressing and coconut bacon. You’ll want to make it on repeat all summer!

Low FODMAP Strawberry Crisp from Tara Rochford Nutrition // A sweet strawberry dessert perfect for the warm months of summer. Made with whole grain oats and oat flour, and it’s low FODMAP!

Blueberry Rhubarb Galette from My Bizzy Kitchen // The best part is that you can use any combination of fruit.  There is no baking the fruit beforehand, just mix all together. It may look soupy when you put it in the pie crust, but it will thicken while it bakes and cools.  Serve with really good vanilla bean ice cream or whipped cream – but truthfully, it is perfect just on its own – perfect combo of sweet and savory because of the rhubarb.

Easy Strawberry Chia Jam from Eating Bird Food // This easy chia jam recipe is made with just strawberries and chia seeds and takes less than 15 minutes to whip up. It’s loaded with fiber and protein, but no added sugar!

Mixed Berry Oatmeal Bars from Sinful Nutrition // Mixed Berry Oatmeal Bars Recipe — A healthy summer dessert made with fresh berries, whole grain oats, brown sugar, and an irresistible crumble topping. (Vegan, Nut-Free, Dairy-Free)

Mixed Berry Rum Slushies from Iowa Girl Eats // Mixed Berry Rum Slushies are perfectly sweet, tart, and refreshing. Cool down with a frosty glass on a hot night!

Lighter Almond Raspberry Cheesecake Bars from Andie Mitchell // These almond raspberry cheesecake bars have only 190 calories or 8 WW points per bar, and yet they’re rich, creamy, and memorable, with a hint of almond extract and a sweet, tart raspberry jam swirl.

Easy Raspberry Chipotle Cauliflower Curry with Boiled Eggs from Savory Spin // Sweet Raspberries, honey, caramelized onions and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce make up the sauce that’s used in this oh-so-tasty, not-to-spicy, yet super-Easy Raspberry Chipotle Cauliflower Curry With Boiled Eggs.

Mixed berry Chia Seed Pudding Mousse from Peanut Butter Fingers // This recipe for Mixed Berry Chia Seed Pudding Mousse is a breeze to whip up and healthy enough to eat for a satiating morning meal but tasty enough to enjoy after dinner for a dessert-like treat. Packed with protein, fiber and good-for-you ingredients, you can feel good about digging into a bowl of Mixed Berry Chia Seed Pudding Mousse any time of day!

Strawberry White Bean Smoothie from Nutriciously // This fruity protein-rich vegan strawberry smoothie is so creamy and delicious! Featuring white beans, it’s high in micronutrients while totally disguising the beany flavor.

Homemade Strawberry Jam from Holly Hammersmith // Making homemade strawberry jam is very easy and I recommend making the jam if you go strawberry picking or if you are looking to tackle your first canning project. It’s a great starter project and you can practically not go wrong in any way with making it. I hope my experience with homemade strawberry jam and picking strawberries provides some insight if you decided to try the same!

Red, White, and Blueberry Bacon Pizza from The April Blake // It might seem weird to put blueberries on a pizza but if you think about it, sweet and savory are combinations that we encounter in plenty of other places and find them perfectly acceptable. For instance, dipping french fries in a Frosty from Wendy’s, chocolate covered pretzels, and maple bacon doughnuts. Now that you’ve had your mind set right, go pick some blueberries and get to baking so you can have the most patriotic dishes coming forth from you oven that you possibly can.

Disney’s Artist Point Berry Cobbler from Just Me and My Running Shoes // After flipping through my cookbook, Cooking with Mickey and the Disney Chefs, I landed on a recipe from a restaurant at my favorite resort – Berry Cobbler from the Wilderness Lodge’s Artist Point. I had all of the ingredients at home already, so why not? The results were a warm, delicious, tart, berry amazingness. The best part? This recipe was super easy to follow! 

Blueberry Honey Chia Jam from Honestly Fitness // I love using honey as a sweetener because not only does it have a fantastic and thick texture, it also contains a variety of minerals and chemicals. This jam also contain chia seeds (my loves) which are a rich source of fiber, protein, healthy fats (omega-3s), vitamins and minerals. Because of their high fiber and protein content, I have found that chia seeds help keep me fuller for longer. 

Mini Berry Bakes from Mutha Fitness // If you enjoy baking and are looking for a lunch box snack, I recently made some mini berry bakes. My two liked them and I felt great that I’d made them a healthy snack bursting with berry goodness! The following recipe makes about 12 portions. The mixture can either be spooned into cupcakes papers or poured onto a flat tray and then sliced up into squares.

Blueberry Cheesecake Spread with Crushed Pecans from Our Radiant Life // This does taste like blueberry cheese cake! The goat cheese becomes creamy and rich with just a slight tangy bite and the blueberries balance that out with a punch of sweetness. The pecans provide a nice texture with a light crunch. This appetizer is so easy to put together, the blueberry jam can be made a few days in advance or you can make this whole dish a few days in advance.  Just save the pecans for right before serving, otherwise they might get a little soft.
