    Considering raspberries are a fortune this time of year I bought frozen ones, let them thaw in hot water and I have a feeling my version was just as good and way cheaper. Also, don't throw away the solids! They're delicious! My husband decided to just eat them with a spoon, but you could definitely make great smoothies with it!
