Navita Natural's Mulberry Power (Product Review) and Whey of Life Yogurt.

Note: Thanks to Navita Naturals for sending me their Mulberry Power package. Mulberries are the edible, berry-like collective fruit of any tree of the genus Morus. Wow, these tiny pieces of fruit taste just like candy, and can be used as a substitute for raisins. They are supersweet. Navita summarized them best as "chewy and soft with a fig-like crunch." Not only do they taste awesome, but they are convenient too, and versatile. You can add to many diffeent food items- oatmeal, pancakes, cookies, etc.

From Navita's website: "More than just a sweet treat, Navitas Naturals Mulberries are a true superfood. They are one of the few fruits to be considered a protein source -- boasting a respectable 3 grams of protein per ounce – and are an excellent source of iron, calcium, vitamin C, and fiber. Mulberries also contain a high concentration of Resveratrol, an antioxidant compound that combats free-radical damage. Recent studies have shown that regular consumption of this special antioxidant helps promote a healthy heart and longevity."

Serving Suggestion: Mix yogurt and mulberries for a sweet treat.
