Berry season is my happy season. The bright colors, the sweet flavors, and the antioxidants make for a delicious treat no matter how you use your berries. If I had to rank them in order of favorites it would have to be blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries. When blackberries are perfectly ripe there’s no stopping my snacking on them! Berries are low in calories (around 50 calories per cup), high in vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants. I love using this fruit salad in place of maple syrup or agave on waffles and pancakes. It’s also great as a small dessert… or on top of ice cream if you’re feeling wild. Don’t let those berries go to waste! This is a great recipe to use the day you buy berries or right before you think it’s time to throw them out.
