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!
Aren’t frozen fruits bad for you?
Nope! 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 incredible easy to find frozen fruits or veggies with one ingredient – the food itself.
So go ahead, take a stroll down the freezer aisle, throw a couple bags in your cart, and check out these 5 delicious ways you can use frozen fruit. Spoiler: no smoothie recipes in sight.
Just add your berries to a sauce pan, stir occasionally until it comes to a boil, and mix with chia seeds. The flavor possibilities are endless!

You can eat frozen berries, mango or pineapple chunks right out of the bag! It’s the perfect snack when you’re in the mood for something sweet.

Next time you’re shopping for a sweet vinaigrette, grab frozen raspberries or strawberries instead. Try a DIY dressing using frozen berries, oil, lemon, and herbs. Same great taste, no added sugar.
Pro-tip: freezing lemon juice in ice cube trays is a great time-saver & prevents food waste!
Make French Toast
I love frozen berry or banana French toast with chopped nuts for breakfast. Bake, or pop in the microwave for a 2-minute French toast in a mug!
