Raspberries are packed with health promoting vitamins and minerals, and have antioxidant benefits. They can help your body metabolize carbohydrates, protein, and fats. They also contain potassium which can help control your heart rate and blood pressure. They have many benefits AND are low in calories.

Strawberries have a combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients. They have many health benefits, including cardiovascular and blood sugar stability benefits. Strawberries have actually been found to reduce blood sugar spikes when eaten with table sugar. How cool is that?

Basil has such a complimentary flavor for strawberries and raspberries, and did you know that it has anti-inflammatory properties and is high in vitamins A, C, and calcium?
