Raspberries, be sure you take the organic ones
Have you ever studied a raspberry close up?
A raspberry is made up of many tiny bead-like fruits called "drupelets" clustered around a core. Each drupelet contains one seed, and an average raspberry has 100 to 120 seeds. Organic Raspberries can be used in a variety of dishes and smoothies but the best taste experience is simply out of hand... with your eyes closed.
