Blueberries – 1.5 kg


Snowcrest™ Selectables® Blueberries are picked at the peak of their season to ensure they are fully ripe and have reached their level of sweetness. At Snowcrest™, we ensure that each delicately picked blueberry is flash frozen within hours of harvesting, allowing it to retain its just-picked flavour. These delicious blueberries are ideal for smoothies or as a topping on yogurt, cereals and ice creams. They can also be used in muffins, pies or crisps. Serve them slightly thawed on their own as a snack, or try Snowcrest™ Selectables® Blueberries in Blueberry Banana Muffins.
