do you know that since I'm on a low low carb diet that I can't have my favorite strawberries or blackberries. I'm shedding a tear daily. This too shall end and I will enjoy my strawberries once again. LOL

I enjoy having fresh raspberries, the whole little clamshell, in a dish with vanilla soy milk over it. I'm having some now with a few almonds. Makes a great dessert or as now midnight snack.

I too love berries & cherries and they've been so good this year.
I made a new salad dressing with raspberries I got on sale:
1 Cup cider vinger*
1/2 pkg tofu (6 oz)
1 pint raspberries
2 T flax seeds
blended.
*this is very tart so if you like something sweeter, either use half apple juice in place of the vinegar or else add Splenda or sugar
Personally, I am trying to get by with less sweetners of any kind. At first this was too tart but I got used to it halfway thru the first salad and now I'm hooked on it.

Blueberries are my favourite. I can't bear to freeze the fresh ones so I keep some frozen wild blueberries to make blueberry frozen yogurt in summer. Use about equal volumes of frozen blueberries (or other frozen fruit) and vanilla yogurt and zip through the Cuisinart or blender. Instant soft serve frozen yogurt.

I made my daughter something the past couple days with dried cranberries. A whole wheat waffle topped with 1/3 less fat cream cheese mixed with a tiny bit of orange juice and sugar then topped with the cranberries. She loves dried cranberries.

I also had some dried cranberries the other day with some extra sharp white cheddar cheese and whole grain club crackers.....YUM!

I am using up my farmers' market berries that I bought earlier and froze. Cranberries should be available soon, but they aren't as naturally sweet. They are super good for you, so I will be checking out options.

I just bought fresh red raspberries and blackberries for $1 a container (grocery usually $2.97) at a fruit stand.
I made something I call choco berry delight. I can't do yogurt so I used 1, choc, van, swirl sf pudding cup and 1 cup each of strawberries, raspberries, & blackberries - it was about 60 calories per serving - made 4 servings.
You could use any fav flavor or fruit - it was scrumptious! emoticon emoticon

I love all berries, my absolute favorite. I like to have with a yoplait fat free vanilla yogurt topped with a tablespoon of granola....delicious!

Nothing's gonna stop me now.

I also love berries particularly strawberries and blueberries. For dessert I use half a 6oz. container of Dannon Light and Fit yogurt and top that with berries and 2 tablespoons of light whipped cream. emoticon

I hardly ever cook with blueberries when they are in season. I like them too much just as they are. I went blueberry picking about 10 days ago and picked about 12 pounds. Alas they are all gone. I gave some away and ate lots and lots of them.

To feed my post dinner sweet tooth, I throw strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries in the blender with some fat free milk and splenda. The mixture is great and hides the blueberry taste I don't like (but their health benefits are amazing!!) When berries are out of season, I buy them frozen in 3 pound bags!

I usually drink about 16-20 oz, so I go to bed full, stay within my daily fat intake (I don't count calories) and I have a few servings of fruit!

I love berries also. Any kind of berry. It is so hot where i live, I don't think they would grow well, unfortunately.
There is a excellent recipe in Sparks recipes, called Red, White, and Blueberry Crisp. I add raspberries to it too. It is very good. My whole family loves it as well and even asks for it if I don't make it often enough.

We put them on whole grain waffles or pancakes for a nice treat or breakfast, with a dollop of fat free cool whip : ) Strawberries are ending here- we will be saddened!

I planted some raspberry canes on the side of my house in a bed that I'd traditionally used for tomatoes. Only two of them took the first year, and the critters got most of them. But this year, they spread like crazy, and are taking up the entire bed!!! The critters still got the better part of the first harvest, but I'm trying lemon joy diluted with water to see if it will ward them off for the second harvest.
My mom got some blueberry plants and gave me two of them. While hers are beginning to thrive, mine aren't doing so well.
I love berries!!! I could eat them all day, just by themselves!!!

Instead of "dessert" I just put a bowl of fresh berries on the table at the end of a meal. Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or whatever I can get that look good. We all sit around the table talking and picking out our favorites, and we've added healthy fruit and fiber instead of fat and sugar. Can't beat that!

And speaking of cherries... I stopped at a roadside stand this morning and got a pound each of Bing and Rainier cherries. They are huge and SO good!!

Love Berries on the non-fat Greek Yogurt but never gave splenda a thought. I will definitely try that this weekend.

I'm a berry junkie right now! My favorite way is with non-fat Greek yogurt and a little Splenda. I'm surrounded by blueberry and strawberry growers so I'm in heaven...

When berries are in season they go in just about everything I cook - I'll even add them to baking chicken for a new twist on an old favorite. (that started when I used to add cranberries and orange juice to my baking chicken)
