Well my raspberries are in season again, they ripen twice once early summer and again late summer. I enjoy them in cereal like oat meal and grapenuts or as a snack, but most of all in smoothies oh yes I love my smoothies and real fruit ice creams.
I was reading recently the benefits of certain berries for people with sugar, weight, and blood pressure issues. A regular diet with them in it helps people with these issues. So some of these berries are black berries, raspberries, cherries and cranberry i am unsure about blue berries they are one of my favorites so i eat those often anyway.
as always from your own garden, freshly picked, garden stands, organic and non sprayed are best, Always check for whole berry content in drinks it is best to juice yourself if you can. I have seen many sites today dedicated to juicing. anyway just my thought for the day as i eat some of my fresh raspberries off the bush.
