Fruit of the Month: April
This month we're focusing on raspberries!
Spring is finally here and with it comes a longer evening, a touch of sunshine and a glimmer of those lazy sunny days and of course, delicious summer fruits – of which raspberries are a favourite! These delicious fruits offer a tart sweetness to any recipe and make a delicious snack by themselves.
Find out how to make the most of your leftover raspberries with the following tasty recipes.
Raspberry ripple chia pudding
For a healthy breakfast or sweet after-dinner snack, this recipe couldn't be better! Combine white chia seeds with coconut milk and leave to thicken. Whilst the mixture is thickening, puree raspberries with a dash of maple syrup and a teaspoon of lemon juice. Pour the puree over the chia seed mixture for a lovely raspberry ripple effect and enjoy!
Raspberry no-bake oat cakes
For a simple snack that's ready in no time, these no-bake oat cakes are ideal. Combine rolled oats, honey, raspberries and raisins in a bowl until thoroughly mixed and sticky. Next, pat into a cake tin and place in the fridge to set a little. Once cooled right through, cut into bite-sized pieces for a snack on the go!
Raspberry and cranberry smoothie
This delicious smoothie is a great way to help reach your 5-a-day. Simply add raspberries, cranberry juice, natural yoghurt and milk to your blender and blend until smooth. Pour into your favourite glass and serve with a sprig of mint for a refreshing drink, perfect for springtime!
Homemade raspberry jam
It's hot cross bun season and there's nothing like a toasted bun with butter and jam. To make your own raspberry jam simply combine raspberries, lemon juice and jam sugar in a pan and bring to the boil. Once it begins to thicken to a jam-like consistency, take off the heat and pour into your jar ready to cool.
