Looking for Raspberry Snack Recipes to make with those delectable fruits you have on hand?
What constitutes a "snack"?
Traditionally snacks were prepared from ingredients commonly available in the home, often leftovers, sandwiches made from cold cuts, nuts, fruit, and the like.
The Dagwood Sandwich was originally the humorous result of a cartoon character's desire for large snacks.
Beverages are not considered real snacks, especially coffee.
The only instance in which a beverage constitutes a snack is if it possesses a substantive food item (e.g., strawberries, bananas, kiwis, raspberries) and then blended to create a smoothie.
Using raspberries alone as snacks, or using recipes made with raspberries are very good choices for snack food because raspberries are very nutritious and low in calories!
Here follows an easy snack, put together with foods you probably have on hand.
It can also be made for a breakfast or a brunch.
It is pleasing to the eye - and to the palate!
The taste and nutritional value are excellent.
Some people, especially young children, do not like the taste of raspberries alone, but, when combined with other foods, they LOVE them!

Raspberries rank in the top 10 antioxidant-high fruits and vegetables! They possess almost 50% higher antioxidant activity than strawberries. Antioxidants are believed to help prevent and repair oxidative stress, a process that damages body cells and has been linked to the development of diseases such as cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's disease.
Raspberries also provide important anti-inflammatories, including anthocyanins (the pigments in red, purple and blue fruits), which are believed to help reduce cardiovascular disease and diabetes, help to improve eyesight and memory functions.
Eating raspberries as a snack is also a great way to avoid dips in your blood sugar levels. Your diet plays a very important role in controlling diabetes.
I LOVE using raspberries as snacks for my family, especially knowing the nutritional value they are receiving by eating these snacks. Healthy snacks are the best snacks!
