The addition of the bran makes this fruit smoothie a little different and a lot healthier. Note that you can use any frozen fruit in this; it's best if you use fruit you've frozen yourself (just do it the night before, if you wish, so you can make this for breakfast).
Emila Brittain made this for our team party for the East Toronto Dodgers all-star baseball team many years ago; I asked for the recipe and she faxed it to me on May 31, 1996. For a long time, I lost the fax -- but I finally found it! I thought it best to get this here at Zaar for two reasons: the fax has already started to fade badly, and I don't want to lose this delicious recipe again. Emila served it as a salad, but it could also be a dessert. Please note that the time to prepare doesn't include the chilling time.
This is very versatile: serve it as a side dish with pork or chicken, serve over ice cream for dessert, serve at breakfast over pancakes or oatmeal, or just eat as is. You can puree to give it a traditional appearance, but I like it chunky-style and so don't puree it at all.
I am such a sucker for visuals. I saw these pancakes being made on a cooking show this morning (Cookworks), dashed out to buy fresh blueberries, and made these for dinner tonight. They did not disappoint! Try them; they're delicious!
A wonderful fruit dessert, easily made with frozen blueberries if you can't find fresh. The province of Nova Scotia has an abundance of blueberries, hence the name. (Recipe originates with Canadian Living.)
