5 Minute Cool Berry Medley

I made this for my daughter’s birthday party and it took me 5 mintues to prepare:

  • 2 packages of strawberries
  • 4 packages of blueberries
  • 2 packages of raspberries
  • 1 package of blackberries
  • 2 whole limes

Directions:

Take out all the berries and combine in a bowl. Cut lime wedges from a lime and line the bowl with them. Squeeze lime juice of the other lime all over the berries for even better taste.

Nutrition:

  1. Tons of vitamin C to fight colds
  2. Loads of antioxidants for the fight against heart disease
  3. Lots of energy. You WILL feel energized.

Hey, you don’t need a party to make this. Have it now!
