Mulberries are considered a “superfood” due to their high antioxidant content, mainly from resveratrol, and other phytonutrients.
Mulberries are a deliciously sweet fruit grown in Asia, Africa, and America (mostly in warmer parts). Mulberries come in several varieties, white, red, purple, and black- white mulberries seem to be the most popular of the varieties. If you’ve never tasted a mulberry before they’re incredibly sweet and have one of the most unique flavors. The taste is somewhat bitter yet sweet like candy, with a hint of pear, citrus, and floral. Dried mulberries also have a crumbly yet chewy texture which is especially nice in trail mixes or muesli.
How to Use:
Use as you would any other dried fruit. Dried mulberries are great in granola, trail mix, Nourishing Muesli, in yogurt, oatmeal, cereal, desserts, or topped with Stripped Green Smoothie Bowls.

Tips and Tricks:
I store dried mulberries in an airtight mason jar for freshness. I also enjoy rehydrating them in water before blending in smoothies, stirring in oatmeal or porridge.
