Who doesn’t love berries? Berry fruits are brimming with health benefits and taste great. Not only are they one of the best sources of antioxidants, they are high in fibre and low in calories. Here’s a favorie recipe of ours for a yummy berry smoothie…
Like all fruits, fresh or frozen is best; once canned, sugar is usually added and the calorie value increases significantly.
Berries are also low in carbohydrates — so a perfect addition to a meal or snack without adding extra carbs. This is great for diabetics who are mindful of not overconsuming carbs!
Berries are the perfect snack; try them in a smoothie, added to plain yoghurt or just straight from the punnet.
