      Sounds good. Blueberries are one of the healthiest foods. When I grew up in Maine, there were wild ones free for the taking. My mother made pies, cakes, and jams.

      MizBejabbers: I'm pretty sure the dairy substitutes will taste yummy as well just not sure how it'll affect the texture and consistency. Thank you for stopping by. I very much appreciate the compliments and the vote. It'll be nice to know how your version would come out. Cheers!

      That looks sooo good. I would make it, but I am allergic to the dairy ingredients. I wonder how it would taste made with substitutions like tofu and almond milk. I know it wouldn't be as tasty, but I think it would still be good. Blueberries are very healthy, and I always try to keep some around. You have a nice presentation with easy-to-follow instructions and beautiful photos. Voted up++
