Crispy Pears

low calorie dried fruitI'm a huge fan of freeze dried fruit. I like adding it to salads, low calorie cereal, steel-cut oatmeal, almond milk, low calorie trail-mix, fage yogurt, or any other food than needs some added crunch or flavor. I've already blogged about a couple of dried fruits, namely Funky Monkey and Sensible foods, and today I thought I'd blog about another personal favorite called Crispy Green.

There are a few things I love about Crispy Green freeze dried fruit: (1) it comes in satisfying one serving bags that are around 38 calories each (0 weight watchers points) making it an extremely low calorie snack, (2) it comes in some really interesting/unique flavors including pear (my favorite), apricot, peach, pineapple, as well as apple, (3) the dried fruit is totally raw so it is very healthy (especially compared to those popular 100 calorie snacks) and (4) it is very crunchy and fun to eat!

I found this freeze dried fruit at Whole Foods, but based on the Crispy Green website, I see it is available in other natural food stores as well.

Enjoy!
Juliet

I love its package! I'll check it out. But why is the the freeze section?

Juliet said...

You definitely should! To answer your question, it is "freeze-dried" not frozen.

these sound really good. i love freeze dried apples, so i'll definitely get a bag of these at whole foods next time. and i don't get what is so great about these 100 calories packs!! my mom and sister eat them all the time, but i'd rather have something healthy with a little more calories than just 100 calories of sugar and unnatural ingredients.

Juliet said...

Freeze dried fruit are the best! Im so bummed its not easy to find them in Greece because the texture is so much better than just dried fruits. I am trying to find somewhere online to buy freeze dried strawberries!

jen said...

These are not nearly as good as Funky Monkey... not very crunchy.

Clare said...

this stuff isn't in the freezer section! I found it at The Fresh Market and they are really good, try the apricots!

Juliet said...

Ooh. Apricots sound great! I'll look for them. :)
