Wild Blueberry Cheese Ball #Recipe

This is a sponsored post.

The warmer days let me know that summer is coming. I find myself eating more fruits and vegetables this time of year. One of my favorite fruits are wild blueberries, and even better, I can enjoy them year round.

What are wild blueberries? How are they different than blueberries?

  • Wild blueberries have a more intense flavor than regular blueberries. 
  • Wild blueberries have two times the antioxidant capacity of the larger cultivated blueberries.
  • 99% of the Wild Blueberry crop is frozen fresh at harvest, which locks in their nutrition and taste.
  • This may come as a shock to you. Wild blueberries are called "Wild" because they are not planted. 

At first I had no clue where to purchase the wild blueberries, but after consulting the where to buy on the Wild Blueberries site, I found my local super Wal-Mart carries them. Wyman's is the brand that Wal-Mart carries. Since I was not sure of what the bag would look like, I walked by it not once, but three times. Thank God for the helpful Wal-Mart employee who took me to the freezer section where the wild blueberries were.



While shopping, I was thinking of wild blueberries, wine, and cheese. Wal-Mart did not carry wine, but they had cream cheese and feta cheese. I finally decided to make a wild blueberry cheese ball. It is so easy to make the cheese ball and would be a wonderful addition to Memorial Day or Independence Day picnics.

Ingredients needed:
  1. 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  2. 4 oz. feta cheese
  3. 5.3 oz. Dannon Triple Zero mixed berry yogurt
  4. 1 cup frozen wild blueberries
  5. 1-2 cups slivered almonds
In mixer, mix cream cheese, feta cheese, and yogurt together, until creamy.

Fold in 1 cup frozen wild blueberries.

Cover and chill in fridge for 1-2 hours.

Shape cheese mixture into ball. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Roll the cheese ball in slivered almonds right before serving.

Serve with bread or crackers.

    1. You could try substituting about 1/4-1/3 cup Ricotta cheese.

  8. This sounds delish, especially with the feta to counter the sweetness of the berries and cream cheese.
