Who wants a hot breakfast or even cold dry cereal on a warm summer morning? The dog days of summer beg for us to use the fresh foods and flavors that will be the start of sun-kissed days. And we think a creamy smoothie bowl filled with fresh blueberries or cherries and topped with crunchy goodness is the perfect answer. Not to mention, we love the idea of being able to customize each bowl to your taste and texture favorites.
Get out a pad and paper right now and add fresh and delicious Rainier organic blueberries and any of our fresh cherries to your shopping list so you have them on hand and ready to try in one of these smoothie bowl recipes.

You might notice that quite a few smoothie bowl recipes call for frozen blueberries. Instead of heading to the freezer aisle to pick up a bag, just grab a container (or two!) of fresh Rainier blueberries and follow the steps below to make your own:
- Rinse blueberries in water and allow berries to fully dry (either dry with paper towel or let them sit out to dry)
- Place them in a re-sealable plastic bag
- Store in freezer for up to 10 months
