For example, you can blend them with yogurt and ice to make a delicious and healthy smoothie. Another easy way to include them is to chop them up and add them to your favorite cold or hot cereal. There is really no shortage of ways in which you can easily substitute aronia berries for other berries in household recipes. Try adding them to the salads you usually make just to switch things up a bit. If you want to find even more aronia berry uses, check out these recipes:
