The mint, lemon, and vanilla in this recipe really makes the natural sugars in the berries the pop! I love to bring this to summer barbecues as a light and refreshing dessert or make a big bowl of it at the beginning of the week to add to breakfast or dinner. It’s almost all carbohydrates so enjoy it after a meal made up of protein and fat to keep your blood sugar stable.
