Frozen fruit is a fantastic way to capture the freshest, ripest flavor of the summer. It's picked at the height of ripeness and flash-frozen to help maintain flavor and nutrients. Not to mention they're affordable and versatile!
Are frozen fruits bad for you?
Frozen fruits and vegetables are just as good for you as their fresh counterparts. "Naked" (no added salt or sugar) produce is the norm so it's incredibly easy to find frozen fruits or veggies with one ingredient - the food itself. So go ahead, take a stroll down the freezer aisle and throw a couple bags in your cart.

If you need a sweet topping for things like yogurt and pancakes, frozen berries are the BEST. I always have Raspberry Chia Seed Jam in my fridge, especially when I'm craving PB&J pancakes.
