When it comes to raspberries and strawberries, both are perfect sources of vitamin C and fiber. Another plus is that they are anti-inflammatory because of the phenol. BUT! Make sure that you purchase the organic strawberries only because regular strawberries contain a large amount of pesticides. In the EWG’s 2016 Dirty Dozen List, strawberries came at the top of the table. On the other hand, raspberries are ranked at 23 number in the list, but still we recommend you to purchase organic to get the maximum health benefits.
Adding a little quantity of mint not only makes it taste better, but also provide some health advantages. Mint helps in digesting food and decrease the process of aging. The major benefit of mint is that it helps in reducing the stress.
