Freezing fruit is the best way to prolong its lifespan as well as opening up a whole new array of options for recipes.
Frozen fruit is good for the budget too because it is usually cheaper as you buy it in bulk. Fresh fruit and vegetables tend to go off very quickly in our house so if I can freeze it – I will!
Here are some recipes and ways you can use frozen fruit!!
Smoothies – Avoid watering down the smoothies and maintaining a yummy thick texture by adding frozen fruit. I have tried using fresh too but I just love how chilled they are! I use frozen banana’s in the Healthy Honey & Banana smoothie I posted.
Rather than watering them down by having to add extra ice, add frozen berries or fruit for a smooth chilled cocktail without ruining the taste!
Frozen fruits in a frozen dessert! shocking! in sorbet, frozen fruit helps to chill the mixture before going in the freezer and I find it makes it more light, airy and tasty. My Low-Fat Strawberry & Peach Sorbet recipe uses frozen strawberries and is a great low fat pudding alternative.

Freezing bananas (this works for other slimey fruits too) between two baking sheets stop them from sticking together when frozen!
