Aronia Berry Butter Swirls

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

Have you ever tried aronia berry?
I have just discovered these berries and was surprised to find out they’ve got so many health benefits.
Before that, I didn’t even know about their existence.
But it’s so fascinating to discover new food and play with it! That’s why I love cooking, there’s so much to discover and cook!:-)

So I thought these super berries will be good in a butter swirl my family and me love so much!
And I was right.:)
Apart from that, you can try aronia berries in a smoothie for a healthy boost.
However, they might not be available everywhere, so check your farmer’s market first.

Here’s what you need.

Tip: I like the swirls not too sweet. I prefer adding powder sugar on top.
But if you like them really sweet, just add more sugar.
