Working in a coffee shop means I get to work around drool worthy baked goods all day long. I have been lusting over the blueberry scone at Starbucks since it was first launched a few weeks ago as apart of the new La Boulange treats. This scone is made with dairy, so I took the inspiration and baked my own dairy free scones!
I took my scones up a notch though and added orange zest and squeezed an orange on top, with some sugar for a crumbly finish. Craving satisfied! If you look close you’ll see the zest!
I used a pre-made flour base so I don’t have a recipe for you, but perhaps this post will inspire you to bake some scones to have with your morning coffee! I had just purchased some fresh organic blueberries that were on sale, it must have been fate!
If all else fails, there is a Starbucks on every corner and you can go buy a blueberry scone from them, I hear they are delicious! I bring some home to my mom anytime I can! Bringing home scones for my family means I get to eat more of these scones, win win!
I still had plenty of blueberries left after making these scones, and decided to throw some in with a bowl of quinoa. From there I added some pistachios and topped it all off with some lime juice! SO simple, but so delicious!
I don’t have a recipe for this either because I just eyeballed everything. I used a half cup of (pre)cooked quinoa (which comes out to be more like a full cup after the quinoa is cooked,) around 3/4 cup of blueberries, and around 1/2 cup shelled salted pistachios. Squeeze as much lime (or lemon, or ORANGE!) on top as you desire!
I LOVE blueberries, so perfect for summer.
