Low-Calorie Raspberry Recipes to Help You Lose Weight
We love raspberries for their sweet tart flavor. Even better, a cup of raspberries has a whopping 8 grams of fiber—and for only 64 calories. Eating more fiber can help prevent weight gain or even encourage weight loss, according to research. So fill up on these high-fiber, low-calorie raspberry recipes for a sweet taste of summer you can enjoy without the guilt.

Try this fruit-and-nut-studded couscous salad alongside grilled salmon or chicken for supper or on its own for a fresh lunchbox treat.
Berry Pudding with Cream (Rodgrod med Flode)
This intensely-flavored berry pudding is topped with a delicious light cream. While it's traditionally made at the end of the summer in Denmark, when raspberries and red currants are at their peak, it's also wonderful with the strawberries and raspberries.
Raspberry, Avocado & Mango Salad
Pureed berries give the tangy wine vinegar dressing a creamy texture that gently clings to the lettuce and fruit. This is a salad to enjoy when fresh berries are in the market.
Raspberry-Glazed Pork Chops with Pickled Onions
Brining enhances flavor and renders pork chops moist and juicy. While the chops brine, prepare the pickled onions and the raspberry sauce. The thick flavorful sauce, rich pork chops and pickled onions all come together in an explosion of flavors and textures.
Raspberry-Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt
Jammy raspberries and rich chocolate combine for a delicious, tart frozen yogurt. It is quick and easy to prepare, but plan ahead if you're using fresh berries--they take a little longer to freeze. Mini chocolate chips give you the most chocolate in every bite, but any kind of chip will work--dark-chocolate lovers should try bittersweet chips.
