Oh how romantic … raspberries are part of the rose family. All in pink and wonderfully sweet, they are simply a fruit to love. Coincidentally, they also provide us with vitamin C, iron, calcium and phytochemicals. It is not surprising that the entire fruit, including leaves, flowers and roots, has always been used in natural medicine.
Anyone who has ever had a crush on raspberries will certainly remain loyal to them, even if they can be somewhat sensitive at times. Therefore, handle these soft fruits carefully, store them in a cool place and only for a short period of time. Eat quickly!
Delightful recipe ideas
If your heart beats a little faster when you think about delicious raspberries, give our three romantic recipes a try.
For the first date: “Lovely” raspberry punch

For a cosy breakfast: Warm raspberry porridge
Briefly boil the oat flakes together with milk and water in a saucepan and then continue to cook over a lower heat. Sweeten the porridge with honey and serve decorated with raspberries.
