Here is a collection of delicious healthy raspberry recipes to celebrate raspberry season! Unfortunately I don’t live where I can pick fresh raspberries. But recently I’ve been able to buy them for as little as 99 cents a box. Now is the perfect time to enjoy them while they are in season.
When fresh raspberries are not in season, frozen are a great alternative. I love to keep a bag in the freezer for adding to smoothies, making sauces, muffins and other favorite healthy raspberry recipes.
In addition to being delicious, raspberries are good for you! They are full of fiber and healthy antioxidants. Did you know that eating raspberries could help lower your risk of type 2 diabetes, hypertension, atherosclerosis, and even cancer?
And they are Weight Watchers friendly. A cup of raspberries has just 64 calories, 0.5 g fat, 14.5 g carbs, 8 g fiber, 1.5 g protein and *0 PointsPlus!
