If you're looking for something to do today then save room for dessert because it's National Raspberries 'n Cream Day!  Oh yes, you can't go wrong with a little creamy zing!  Let's get right into celebrating National Raspberries 'n Cream Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?
Well, if you've ever had peaches and cream, or any other fruit with cream, then you know that the sweetness of the fruit goes really well with creamy things. And, depending on the type of raspberry and where you are, it's a good time of year to get some fresh raspberries. People love creamy things. People love raspberries. People really love raspberries in creamy things! So guess what? That kind of love and popularity calls for yet another food holiday and that holiday is National Raspberries 'n Cream Day!  But let's take a look at the facts about raspberries first. Russia, Serbia and the United States are the biggest producers of raspberries in the world. These thorny bushes, or sometimes thornless bushes, grow really well on your own. In fact, I see plenty of them growing in the wild where I live. They've also got a good amount of vitamin C and fiber in them. But raspberries come in many different varieties; they're not all red. Some are black, some are gold and they even crossed red raspberries with black raspberries to make a purple raspberry.  So, as you can see, you have a few different types of raspberries to choose from, but what about the cream, right? The two types of cream that come to mind right off the top of my head are heavy whipping cream and cream cheese. You could also opt for some of that whipped cream topping. The heavy whipping cream will make for a lighter cream that you can mix other ingredients in or just top it with some raspberries. And of course the cream cheese is going to be thicker, a lot richer and can even be spread on things as an icing. Do you have some recipe ideas popping up in your mind yet?  Good! You better get to them!

HOW TO CELEBRATE
So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, the easiest way to celebrate is always to try to find some place that serves raspberries 'n cream on a daily basis. This might take a little research and possibly a few phone calls, but I am sure that some place near you has a raspberry dish that involves some kind of cream. It could be something as simple as raspberry ice cream or even some raspberry flavored coffee with some cream in it. See, finding your celebratory prize is a lot easier than you think!  Or you can always opt to make them yourself, which means you get even more of a sugary feast! But before you start shopping for supplies, you're going to want to decide on how you want to make your raspberries 'n cream and what type of raspberries you're going to include. I already mentioned two ideas but you can also make puddings, cake, pie, muffins, brownies, candy, milkshakes and anything else you can think of that combines raspberries and cream.  In fact, why don't you tell a few friends about today's holiday and then tell them to come up with their own type of raspberries 'n cream on their own. Don't mention what you plan on doing, just see how your friends imagine how raspberries 'n cream should be. Then you can invite them all over for a barbeque, after they've made their version, and you can feast on the raspberry treats after your real meal, since I'm sure most of them will be desserts. Some versions will be good, some will be bad but I'm sure that you'll be impressed with your friends' creativity when they come up with a raspberries 'n cream recipe that you never thought of before.  Have a great day and keep it creamy!
