Maybe not so healthy when made into a pie!
This past weekend I came across a stellar deal on blackberries. The local supermarket sold five (6oz) containers for five dollars, and I couldn’t resist buying them.
Blackberries have a few benefits I decided to indulge. First, they are high in Vitamin in the following essential vitamins:
Vitamins A and C- Supports the immune system, bone, and tooth growth and aids the immune system.
Vitamin K – along with Vitamin C, helps in blood clotting when experiencing an open wound.
Blackberries also contain a healthy amount of fiber, which ultimately helps regulate cholesterol levels. Couple this with the antioxidants within the blackberry, and you have a very healthy fruit.
You can take this fruit and eat it alone or dress it up with other fruits and possibly make a smoothie. I went a whole different direction and decided to go against the expert’s advice adding additional sugars to make a blackberry pie. It was my first homemade blackberry pie, and it tasted not too dissimilar from a raspberry pie.
Please tell me it still had some healthy attributes left!
