Raspberries and Memories

Raspberries are one of my favourite things. I love the colour and that sweet raspberry smell always makes me smile. If my day needs a pick me up raspberries are usually involved.

Here I blended one cup of raspberries with one banana and water. Garnished with fresh mint.

Raspberries bring back a lot of childhood memories for me. Time at my Grandparent's farm, a summer-time dessert my mom used to make for special guests and finding wild ones on nature trails.

This was a quick way to feel all of that cozy nostalgia, nourish my body and create a little moment of afternoon joy.

Hope something wonderful crosses your path today!
