April marks the start of blueberry season in North America. This nutrient-dense fruit is packed with antioxidants and is a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese, and fiber, among other things. With brain-boosting, anti-aging, and cancer-fighting properties, blueberries live up to their hype as one of the healthiest fruits around.

There are a lot of easy ways to incorporate more blueberries into your diet. You can add some to your cereal, top off your yogurt with them, or throw a few handfuls into your smoothies.

And who could forget blueberry muffins? Sweetened with banana and honey, and topped with an oatmeal crumble, these Greek yogurt mini muffins are a perfect healthy snack. If you don't have a mini muffin tin, you can also use a regular muffin tin, and it'll make 12 large muffins.
