I have a confession to make: I am addicted to raspberries. Would you blame me? It’s hard to resist the beautiful colors, intense flavor, and sweet juicy taste of raspberries!
Due to how much I love raspberries, I get very creative with them. So, I always try different raspberry recipes. Mind-blowing ones, of course!
I made this vegan frozen raspberries yogurt bar recipe with vanilla extract. Also, I paired it with raisins and hazelnuts to get a smooth and creamy flavor. The hazelnuts gave this recipe a perfect crunchy taste.
Let’s make this recipe!

Health benefits of raspberries
Raspberries have an irresistible taste. They grow best in hilly and mountainous places and regions with cool and humid climates.
Good for diabetics
A cup of raspberries contains 8 grams of fiber. Firstly, fibers are effective in lowering blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood sugar. Secondly, raspberries contain a little amount of sugar compared to other fruits. Thus, this makes them less likely to raise your blood sugar level.
Prevents certain diseases
Raspberries contain high amounts of antioxidants. These antioxidants play a vital role in protecting cells from damage by free radicals.
What are free radicals? They are unstable atoms that can injure your cells. In addition, some of the damages these free radicals cause have been linked to arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and more.
Raspberries contain vitamin C, and Vitamin C is important for collagen production. The body needs collagen to keep the skin healthy.
Raspberries contain a high amount of potassium, vitamin A and calcium. They also contain about 50% of the recommended daily dose of vitamin C.
These fruits are also my favorites because they contain no fat, sodium, or cholesterol and they are a good source of iron and folate.
How to Store Raspberries
Raspberries soften quickly, so you are better off buying only little quantities. Blueberries and strawberries can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. However, less hearty berries like blackberries and gooseberries can only be stored for 3-5 days.
Also, berries can stay fresh for 3 to 5 days when stored at room temperature.
