Did you know that a raspberry is actually a cluster of tiny fruits, each with its own seed? The individual fruits are called druplets.
Raspberries spoil quickly even when stored properly (it isn’t just you!)- loosely and unwashed. That’s why frozen raspberries and sugar free raspberry preserves are great options!
Nutritionally, this breakfast has much to offer. Raspberries are a good source of Vitamin C. Dates are a good source of dietary fiber and potassium. Chia seeds offer omega-3 fatty acids to the mix.
It’s also delicious! Raspberries and chia seeds give a crunch, dates provide sweetness and body, and steel cut oats balance out the sweetness with a mild nutty flavor.
