A lot of us spend so much of our lives approaching health on an individual level; which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But, what if we thought of health on a human level? The idea that choosing a healthy lifestyle is a way to better the human race as a whole has been weighing on my mind for quite some time now.
What happens when we choose to practice a healthier lifestyle? We lose weight, we feel better, we look better, notice changes in our skin, hair, and the overall way we view our bodies. As wonderful and empowering as all of that is, what if we added to that. What if, along with choosing to make our lives better, we also focused on how our lifestyle changes can change the world as a whole.
For example, I have started supporting more local companies and brands that are doing more for our communities. I’ve started demanding the people I choose to spend my time with open up their minds and accept others for who they are! So, what can you implement in your life today that will help change the health of our world? As humans, it is so important to continuously educate ourselves and come up with different ways to change the world around us.
If you have never heard of Driscoll’s, then what rock do you live under? Driscoll’s is the trusted brand for only the finest berries. Their exclusive patented berry varieties are developed through years of research by using ONLY natural breeding methods.
Not only are they the fresh berry leader worldwide. But, they are also very accessible. Driscoll’s prides themselves on bettering the world as a whole through berry donations, community grants, and employee volunteerism. They are changing the way we view health one berry at a time.
Now, Driscoll’s knows me and my fellow Minnesotans love us some raspberries. So, they have decided to show their appreciation by hosting a Minnesota exclusive BerryTogether sweepstakes with a top prize of a magical 4-night getaway at Madden’s on Gull Lake. Four first-prize winners will win Driscoll’s berries for a year. This contest is intended to remind us all that life’s most precious moments are always better when shared; and what better way to do that than with the world’s finest berries?
Now, whenever I think of Driscoll’s berries, I think romance. Yes, Y’all know I’m not alone there. In this case, I’m not talking about chocolate covered berries. I’m talking about this individual prosciutto arugula flatbread with homemade raspberry jam. Are you done drooling yet? Ok, let’s continue. This recipe sounds very elegant and time-consuming (and your man or your lady will think you spent the whole day preparing it), however, it is super easy and comes together in less than 30 minutes!
Whenever I am making a recipe that requires only a few ingredients, I always suggest using high-quality ingredients that will not only stand on their own but will work well together.
We start by making the raspberry jam (I know that sounds intimidating but it doesn’t take as much time as you would think). All you are going to need here are Driscoll’s raspberries, maple syrup, and lemon juice.
While the raspberry jam cools, you want to warm up the flatbread (I just got mine at a local bakery). Also, your local grocery store’s bakery section will have a great selection of flatbreads to choose from. I would recommend sticking with a plain (non-flavored bread-you don’t want to take away or add any more flavors here).
I hope you make this prosciutto arugula flatbread with homemade raspberry jam for your date-night this summer and enjoy the magic of the world’s finest berries. Let’s BERRY TOGETHER people!
I would like to thank Driscoll’s and TheFeedFeed for sponsoring this post today. All opinions are my own.

- FOR FLATBREAD:
- 2 pieces Naan (flatbread)
- 2 cups fresh baby arugula
- 1 tbsp. avocado oil
- 2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto (about 4 pieces)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Empty raspberries into a colander, rinse and pick out any that are bruised.
- Add raspberries, maple syrup and lemon juice to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil.
- Cook, stirring continuously and skimming foam from the surface for 5-12 minutes or until the mixture reaches 225 degrees F on a candy/instant thermometer. To test if its ready, remove the jam from heat, and spoon a small amount onto a plate. Transfer plate to the freezer for 3 minutes. If the jam starts to gel, it’s ready. If not, continue to cook for a few more minutes and retest.
- While the jam cools, heat flatbread in preheated oven by placing them directly onto the oven rack for 5-7 minutes.
- To assemble the flatbreads, add 2 tablespoons of jam on each and spread evenly. Then toss arugula with avocado oil and add on top. Finish with a couple slices of prosciutto and shaved cheddar on each flatbread.
- Enjoy with a nice glass of Rosé.
Leftover jam can be stored in a sterilized mason jar with an air tight seal. Enjoy with toast, crackers or on a cheese plate.
