I never used to like berries but started liking blackberries recently. I find blueberries a little too small and raspberries a little sour. But blackberries are nice and plump and are just the right amount of sweet for me. They're also expensive at $3.49 for a 6 ounce container at my local Whole Foods. Sometimes they're on sale but that's pretty rare. Luckily living in NYC there are several small fruit stands along the sidewalks. The fruit stands sell the same packaged blackberries for $2 each so I like to stock up and freeze them to use in smoothies. There's a trick to freezing blackberries (and pretty much anything in a multiple) so they don't all stick together. Wash and dry the berries and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Once the blackberries are frozen solid, transfer them into a large freezer bag. They last up to 2 months in the freezer and are perfect if you want to make a smoothie. I like to use plain low-fat yogurt, a little orange juice and a handful of berries. I use a handheld immersion stick blender from Cuisinart and it takes just a few seconds to blend all of the ingredients into a smooth and yummy breakfast. It's one of my favorite kitchen tools and easy to use and clean.
