Picked at the peak of ripeness with their nutrients essentially locked-in, frozen raspberries are a delicious, nutrient-packed way to add bright, sweet-tart flavor to your refreshing, must-have summertime smoothies!
The National Processed Raspberry Council has kicked off our Razz Up Your Smoothie month-long campaign, which will highlight frozen raspberries as the perfect ingredient to your summertime smoothies. Frozen raspberries are packed with quintessential summertime flavor. With frozen raspberries, you’re getting a two for one – they’re already cold and act as mini ice-cubes to your refreshing summertime beverages while also providing vitamin C, fiber, phytochemicals, and minerals in just one bite (or slurp!). At only 80 calories per 1 cup serving, containing more fiber than any other berry, and one of the lowest in natural sugar, frozen raspberries are a smart choice for smoothies. So, let’s #RazzItUp with summer’s favorite sassy flavor!
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing three new original raspberry smoothies – so keep checking back for delicious smoothie inspiration!
We’d love for you to show us how you’re enjoying your frozen smoothies this summer! Post your photos or recipes on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook by using the hashtag #RazzItUp!
