We love to add fresh berries to our Healthy Mummy Smoothies and raspberries are one of our all time favourites due to their yummy taste and their super healthy benefits

Raspberries are a rich sources of vitamins and minerals, including copper, iron, lutein, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin C and much more

They are also rich in fibre, containing around 4g of fibre per cup and contain just just 60 calorie per cup. Some of this fibre is insoluble fibre, which can help you to lose weight in a very simple way. Insoluble fibre cannot be absorbed by the body, so when you drink water, it swells up in your tummy, helping to keep you full without you taking in any extra calories.

The fibre then needs to be expelled from the body as waste material, so it helps to keep you regular, which improves bowel health and reduces your risk of bowel cancer.

Raspberries also contain soluble fibre, which helps to lower your levels of blood cholesterol.

They are also a low GI food, meaning that they release their energy into your bloodstream slowly, preventing blood sugar spikes and therefore blood sugar lows. Blood sugar lows can cause cravings for fatty or sugary foods, which can lead to weight gain, so eating foods low on the glycaemic index can help to control your weight.
