Frozen Cherries are Amazing!

frozen cherriesSo, I'm sure you already knew that fruit was good for your diet. But, did you know that freezing certain fruits makes them even tastier?

There are tons of different frozen fruits available at the supermarket (and you can also make your own at home). My personal favorite is frozen cherries because they come without pits and ready to eat (they also taste *amazingly* good). In addition to cherries, I am also a big fan of frozen mango, frozen blueberries, as well as frozen bananas.

I combine frozen fruit with many different foods including Almond Milk, Fage Yogurt, Van's Waffles, and Kashi Cereal. You can even combine frozen fruit with a dollop of low calorie or fat-free whipped cream, to make a healthy and delicious dessert. Frozen bananas, cherries, strawberries, and blueberries can also be used to make really yummy low calorie smoothies.

You can eat a very filling portion of frozen fruit for 70-120 calories, or 1-2 weight watchers points and you can buy frozen fruits at almost any supermarket. I usually buy mine at Whole Foods (I like to buy the organic kind).

Frozen fruit is truly a great addition (tasty and healthy) to any breakfast, a snack, or dessert!

Shopping Tip: When buying packaged frozen fruit, make sure you find one with no added sugar. The only ingredient in the package should be the actual fruit that you are buying. If you prefer to buy your own, that also works just as well. I recommend washing it and then freezing several 1 serving portions in Ziplock bags.

Question For You: What kinds of fruit do you like to freeze and eat?

Hey Juliet,
I've never tried frozen cherries - what a great idea. My favorite frozen fruits are frozen grapes (which you have to make -- they don't sell them at the supermarket), and frozen peaches.

I love frozen grapes too-they're like itty bitty popcycles.

I love frozen blueberries on cereal and oatmeal and yogurt.

I need to try frozen cherries.

Thanks everyone -- all great ideas! I also love frozen grapes (which I freeze in little 1 serving baggies). They make a great dessert.
