It’s often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. At the very least, it’s an opportunity to fuel your morning and fit in some vital nutrients. When frozen red raspberries are on the menu, you’ll be kicking your day off with gorgeous gems that are an excellent source of immune-supporting vitamin C.
They are also an excellent source of dietary fiber. In addition to filling you up, fiber helps to support digestive health and regulate blood sugar, to steady your a.m. energy. Bonus: red raspberries can boast one of the lowest sugar contents compared to other berries, and the frozen bags you can conveniently stash in your freezer contain no chemicals, and no additives – just cold air.
Here are 3 simple recipes to incorporate frozen raspberries into your morning breakfast.
Blend up frozen raspberries, banana, coconut milk and chia seeds to form the smoothie bowl base. Then go to town decorating with additional fresh or frozen fruit, shredded coconut, dark chocolate, nuts, seeds or edible flowers. This breakfast is truly Instagram worthy!
Oats offer whole grains and fiber to fill you up and keep you full throughout the day. This baked oatmeal is great for meal prep – make a batch on Sunday, portion into containers and reheat for easy breakfasts all week.
Using yogurt in these easy muffins helps cut down on the added sugars and fats needed to make muffins taste great – plus it helps makes these muffins super moist! Frozen raspberries also add tons of flavor and offer less color “bleed” than using fresh berries.
