One of the greatest parts when traveling is to try new foods you are not used to. It is great to explore new flavors and what sensations these might give your senses. Always when we go somewhere we try to check if there are any local markets around. We have spent numerous hours just wandering around and being impressed with the smells, colors and always looking for a new experience for our taste buds.First time we heard and tasted Mulberries were during one of our travels in Istanbul December last year. We were really amazed of these naturally sweet and good tasting berries and bought a big bag to bring back home to Sweden. Back then we had no idea of what power the mulberries actually consist of. Mulberries are an excellent source of protein, dietary fiber, vitamin C and K. What actually differ mulberries to many other berries is the richness in iron as well as its calcium content. The mulberries have anti-inflammatory properties and can aid arthritic pain. It is also said that eating mulberries on a regular basis will strengthen your eyesight, keeps your blood sugar levels stable and increases the good cholesterol in your body. Pretty powerful berries we would say and these are only some of the health benefits. We usually have them in our buckwheat porridge, as a nice topping in a smoothie or simply just as a snack.
Our beloved Banana Cream seen in the picture above is to give you inspiration for a nice breakfast or a lighter meal using the mulberries as topping.

– Mulberries and Goji berries
Simply blend the frozen bananas with maca, cardamom and cinnamon until creamy. Place in a bowl and top it off with mulberries and goji berries. It doesn´t get any easier than this!
