Berries In A Cloud

This is a great after practice after dinner  dessert. You can serve this with frozen or fresh the frozen berries. This is a   recipe from Real Simple . All types of berries are nutritious and low in calories. One cup of strawberries contains over 100 mg of vitamin C, almost as much as a cup of orange juice. We need vitamin C for immune system function and for strong connective tissue. Strawberries also add a bit of calcium, magnesium, folate and potassium and only 53 calories.

One cup of blueberries offers a smaller amount of vitamin C, minerals and phytochemicals for only 83 calories. The same amount of cranberries is similar, but with only 44 calories, 1 cup of raspberries offers vitamin C and potassium for 64 calories. This is one of  Lauren’s and my  favorites.

Enjoy!
