Blueberry Butter | My LIttle Gourmet

We recently went out to dinner at an Austrian restaurant and before dinner they brought us a basket of bread and a small bowl with a scoop of something red. Arik immediately shouted that he wanted some strawberry ice cream. I went ahead and spread some on a slice of bread for him and once he realized this was in no way ice cream he was very skeptical. With the second bite though, the skepticism subsided and he just wanted more and more. You’re probably thinking that this bowl contained blueberry butter, but no, Arik ate an entire bowl of beet butter.

Of course, when I got home that evening I wanted to recreate this butter so I could share it with you all. After a few minutes of pondering I realized if I so much as mention beets on a kid-friendly recipe blog, I will probably get laughed at. So, in turn I decided to make this much more kid-friendly blueberry butter. We not only eat this for breakfast on crispbread crackers or toast, but also as an afternoon snack when I need to quickly and easily curb some toddler hunger. And I haven’t yet tried it, but next time I will be spreading this on these pancakes…yum!

  1. Blueberry butter?! How can something so amazing exist? This is ingenious Laura! No more having to apply both blueberry jam and butter onto toast when bluebery butter exists! Such a great recipe :)

  2. How amazing is this idea? How amazing is this going to be when I eat it all? I can’t wait!

  3. We make strawberry butter for popovers. I think my kids will love blueberry one even more. This is a must make recipe for my family!

    • Thanks Nami! I remember your post on that strawberry butter and those popovers! I still have yet to get a popover pan, but when I do those are first on my list. :)

  4. This sounds amazing. I can’t wait to try it. However I was wondering how long this will stay good.

    • Since it’s got blueberries in it I would say 3 days to be on the safe side but we’ve definitely eaten it on day 5. :)
