23 Ways With Ravishing Raspberries

Raspberry Nice CreamLately, I’ve been on a “nice cream” kick. Nice cream is a non-dairy version of an ice cream-like frozen treat you whip up in your blender. The flavor possibilities are endless. My new favorite is Raspberry Nice Cream, a totally elegant, incredibly simple treat made from bananas, cashew nuts and plump gorgeous raspberries. Talk about a healthy dessert!

Raspberries are super good for you and mighty tasty, too. Believe it or not, they’re fabulous in dishes you might never think of, like salsa and sauces for grilled meats. Fresh and frozen raspberries can be used interchangeably in most recipes. Here are my raspberry recommendations:

Remember, raspberries are highly perishable so you’ll want to use them up within 2 to 3 days.  Discard any with soft spots or mold immediately so they don’t contaminate their neighbors.  Wash gently and pat dry before serving.  And for those just-in-case moments, don’t forget to keep frozen raspberries on hand.

What’s your favorite way to eat raspberries?  I’d love to know.
