I love raspberries so much I will put up the seeds getting stuck in my teeth.  This week   I decided to take a closer look at this little power gem of vibrant color and see why we should be eating them.  I wasn’t disappointed; they are a great source of Vitamin C, K, E, fibre, magnesium and potassium.   They have the right antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients for anti- cancer treatments and improve management of obesity.

Breakfast perfection!

I have been using raspberries for years as a simple dessert garnish and as the base for other sweet creations.  After researching them this week I decided to create a simple yet effect away to absorb all their health giving nourishment and allow them to take centre stage.  Breakfast perfection in a smoothie bowl YUMMY!.  I think the picture says it all.

My notes for this recipe…are in picture form enjoy!   The topping for this creation is toasted pumpkin seeds, some berries, toasted coconut flakes.  I made the smoothie with 1/2 an avocado, frozen organic raspberries, unsweetened almond milk, rice syrup, sunflower seed butter and some ice all blended up.
