9 Mouthwatering Ideas for Frozen Fruit


There’s so much to love about frozen fruits. They’re refreshing, budget-friendly and just as healthy as their fresh counterparts. Plus, they can elevate your meal plan to a whole new level of deliciousness.

Here are 9 ideas for using frozen fruit that will make life irresistibly sweet.

  1. Simmer frozen blueberries with a bit of water and sweetener (like maple syrup) to create a tasty sauce or syrup. Drizzle on plain Greek yogurt or whole-grain toast with ricotta cheese. *chef’s kiss*
  2. Puree cooked vegetables and add them to stews and soups.
  3. Pick up a bag of frozen mango chunks to have on hand for when you’re craving something sweet. Toss a cup into a bowl, let thaw in the fridge and enjoy as is!
  4. Level up your morning with frozen berries and this breakfast smoothie bowl.
  5. When bananas ripen too fast, banana bread isn’t your only option. Keep frozen, ripe bananas on hand as a way to naturally sweeten oatmeal. Swirl in a dash of peanut butter to add protein.
  6. Three words: cherry cacao smoothie. Toss the following in a blender and enjoy: ¾ cup frozen cherries, ½ scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 tablespoon cacao powder, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, ½ tablespoon peanut butter, ½ cup ice.
  7. Make a tropical mocktail and enjoy it any time of year. Blend 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks, ½ cup orange juice, ¼ cup coconut milk and 1 tablespoon honey. Once smooth, divide between two glasses (to share with a friend!), leaving room to add sparkling water and a lime wedge garnish.
  8. Stay hydrated and make water less boring with fruit-infused water. Add a few frozen cherries and pineapple chunks to still or sparkling water.
  9. Have you seen frozen avocado chunks and thought … “huh?” They actually make the perfect smoothie addition, and add a creamy texture and dose of healthy fats.
  10. Enjoy homemade peach salsa! Thaw frozen peach slices and chop into smaller pieces. Mix the peaches with diced red onions, jalapenos, cilantro, lime juice and a pinch of salt. This salsa pairs beautifully with grilled chicken or fish.

Bonus: Skip bottled salad dressings and make your own raspberry vinaigrette. Thaw frozen raspberries and blend with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, a touch of honey and a pinch of salt and pepper. Tangy. Simple. Yum.

Get creative with frozen fruit, and let life be a little sweeter with every bite!
