One cup of fresh blackberries contains about 62 calories.
One cup of frozen blackberries contains about 75 calories, depending upon the brand this amount can differ.
Oh my, just look at all the healthy benefits contained inside of this beautiful gift from Mother Nature - so low in caloric values as well as in dietary fat.
But do take note because almost-all foods do contain fat - even our healthy bushel of blackberries which we must guard heavily because there is a certain Peter Rabbit who also has his tummy set on them. And when it comes to fresh blackberries, well - it's just really difficult to share.
More Healthy Notes
One entire cup contains about the same number of caloric values - or close to a fancy rice or popcorn cake. I know which selection that I'd rather have.
And if you're looking for an easy, delicious and yes - so nutritious dessert, then take a cup of 62 calories blackberries - fresh or frozen will both work well, but do thaw the frozen before using - and add a serving of your favorite coffee creamer to them.
I like the Italian Cream coffee creamer which contains 35 calories, so for about 100 calories, I can enjoy a delicious snack that I feel good about eating, without guilt.
