    Hey! What a fantastic idea!! This sounds as easy as making vanilla!! Just curious if you’ve ever made it with frozen or freeze dried raspberries?

    1. Thanks Cassandra! And I haven’t made it with anything but fresh berries, but I think frozen would work work (but may not be as good as freezing reduces the tartness of berries over time.
