Thaw your frozen berries in the microwave.

Health benefits: You'll preserve twice as many antioxidants and more vitamin C if you do compared to defrosting on the counter or in the fridge. Frozen fruit and veggies have been shown to be better for you than fresh out-of-season produce, since they are picked and frozen when their nutrition is at their peak. Also: Berries are your fiber friends: Ounce per ounce, there is more fiber in raspberries than bran cereals!

 I don't care for raspberries.  But I do like blackberries,strawberries and blueberries (only in muffins).
