Jumbo Blueberry Avocado Muffins
By The Berry That Cares On July 16, 2018

Think baking is just for winter? Think again. Tart blueberries and tangy thick yogurt combine with the creaminess of this recipe’s butter stand-in, avocado, to create a muffin worthy of the man who means the most to you. Many of us will celebrate Father’s Day this month, and what better way to show your appreciation than with a bit of indulgence and a nod towards his health. After turning thirty, many men experience a drop in testosterone levels, resulting in decreased muscle mass and bone density, and possible increase in risk of prostate cancer. Luckily, nature has provided us with many foods that can help increase testosterone levels, including blueberries (containing resveratrol) and avocados (full of monounsaturated fatty acids). Served with a cup of coffee, topped with a scoop of ice cream - there’s really no wrong way to enjoy these muffins.

There’s nothing more satisfying than grabbing a handful of fresh berries and knowing they come straight off the bush. But a blueberry’s journey from field to table requires more than just a skillful hand. A few factors attribute to our product being as plump and fresh as it is.
