Before you go pouring a bunch of bran into your smoothie bowl, did you know there's a prettier, yummier, and healthier option? One cup of blackberries has more fiber than a bowl of bran cereal (and they win for taste hands-down). They're also rich in vitamin C and antioxidants that may help boost your immune system.
So what do you do when these bite-size gems aren't in season? Get frozen blackberries all year long! Most of these blackberries are grown in Oregon on family farms where they're picked at the peak of ripeness. Then they're frozen within 24 hours to lock in the nutrients, flavor, and juiciness. As a result, frozen blackberries can be even higher in antioxidants and vitamins than fresh berries that have traveled long distances to get to your grocery store. Plus, keeping a bag in your freezer means less waste and easy access for adding blackberries to your recipes.
