Vanilla Coconut Custard with Fresh Raspberries

Spring is here, and that means it’s time to get outside! One of our favorite activities during the gorgeous weather is to have a picnic. Aside from picnics, we have our annual gathering of friends – where we sit and eat, chat, play games, and just enjoy the fabulous weather that has finally arrived. When these shindigs are put together, the one thing that we have to have is an amazing dessert to go along with all the fun that we are having.

Now, if you decide to make this for your family, the best part about it is – you get your daily fiber intake! Adding Benefiber into the dessert allows for the entire family to get the fiber that many of us are lacking. Most of the time, we are deficient in our fiber intake, but it can be hard to get all the delicious foods that we need to ensure that our levels remain steady. When our bodies are functioning properly, they remain healthier and we are happier for it.
