Fresh raspberries aren’t just for your sweet tooth. These antioxidant-packed berries offer some serious nutrition. Raspberries are a good source of Vitamin K, Magnesium, fiber, Vitamin C, and Manganese. When you consume them raw (like in these delectable tartlets), you’re getting the full benefits of their body-loving goodness. Enjoy!
