Skinny on Berries

Sure, they are delicious and nutritious. It’s great to know berries are low in calories, too. Here’s the skinny on the number of calories in one cup of eight common berries, raw or frozen, and without sugar, of course:

Strawberries: 49

Mulberries: 60

Blackberries: 63

Raspberries: 64

*Boysenberries: 75

Loganberries: 81

Blueberries: 84

Elderberries: 106

*Boysenberries are a cross between blackberries, raspberries and loganberries. I was introduced to these great-tasting treats at Knott’s Berry Farm in California many years ago. Love ’em!
