18 Sweet and Savory Recipes with Berries You Should Try This Season

Berries are a beloved ingredient in healthy recipes, sweet or savory, all around the world – and for good reason. From strawberries and blueberries to the exotic açaí berry, these juicy superfoods are packed with antioxidants, fibers, vitamin and manganese.

Despite being sweet, studies show that a handful of berries can improve blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity. Raspberries and strawberries have been shown to help lower cholesterol and improve arterial function, two important factors of heart health. Consuming cranberries reduces your chances of developing a urinary tract infection with 26 percent. And thanks a compound called anthocyanidins, eating 1 to 2 cups of blueberries every week can help you keep mentally sharp in old age.

All the more reason to regular snack on nature’s colorful candy!

Of course you can eat any kind of berry straight up, no recipe required. But who does’t like to add a little sweet & sour taste to their smoothie, yogurt bowl, healthy baking and even salads and dinner?

So let’s take a look how you can enjoy even more strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries this season with these 18 sweet and savory berry recipes!
