3 Things To Try With Frozen Berries

3 Things To Try With Frozen Berries

There's nothing better than a delicious frozen berry in the summertime. But what can you do with frozen berries when the weather turns cold? Turns out, there are a lot of different things you can make! In this blog post, we will discuss how to make a smoothie bowl, jam, and baby food with frozen fruit. We'll also take a look at how frozen berries are made and what benefits they offer. So whether you're looking for a new way to enjoy frozen berries or you need some ideas for winter recipes, read on!

 

How Is Frozen Fruit Produced?

When it comes to frozen fruit, there are a few things you need to know. First of all, frozen fruit is usually cheaper than fresh fruit. This is because frozen fruit is typically picked at its peak ripeness and then flash-frozen, which locks in nutrients and flavour. To flash freeze fruit, farmers first pick the ripe fruit from their trees or bushes. The fruit is then washed and sorted before being placed on trays and frozen in a large freezer. Once frozen, the fruit is packaged and shipped to grocery stores or supermarkets. Additionally, frozen fruit is very versatile - you can use it in smoothies, baking recipes, or even as a healthy snack on its own.

 

How To Make A Smoothie Bowl With Frozen Fruit

One great way to enjoy frozen fruit and berries is by making a smoothie bowl. To do this, simply blend your favourite berries with some milk (dairy or non-dairy) and yogurt until smooth. Then top with your favourite toppings like granola, nuts, or seeds. Smoothie bowls are a great way to get your fruit fix in the wintertime! Research performed by Dr Felice Jacka found that increased diversity in the gut microbiome is linked with significantly improved physical and mental health. She found that people who consumed thirty different plant-based foods each week had the greatest diversity in their gut bacteria. A smoothie bowl is a perfect way to get a lot of plants into your diet in one delicious meal! By using a variety of berries, nuts, seeds, and grains, you can give yourself a big vitamin hit and feed the good bacteria in your gut with a load of delicious fibre!

 

How To Make Jam From Frozen Fruit

Another delicious way to use frozen fruit and berries is by making jam. This is a great project to do with kids, as it's simple and doesn't require any special equipment. To make berry jam, simply cook frozen berries with sugar and water until thickened. The ratio of fruit to sugar should be about 1:1 but feel free to experiment with this to see what works best. You might find that sweet fruits need a bit less sugar, and bitter fruits need a bit more. Be sure to keep an eye on this mixture while it’s cooking down, and be sure to stir it regularly - you don’t want it to burn! Once you’ve simmered the mixture of fruit, water, and sugar to a nice thickness, pour it into jars or containers and let cool. The jam will keep in the fridge for a while - this is a preserve, after all! Enjoy it on toast, oatmeal, or even ice cream!

 

How To Use Frozen Fruit To Make Baby Food

Finally, frozen fruit is also great for making baby food. If you have a little one at home, this is a quick and easy way to make healthy meals. Simply blend frozen berries with some water or milk until smooth. You can also add in other ingredients like bananas, sweet potatoes, or yogurt for more flavour and nutrition. This is like a smoothie bowl for your baby! In the research mentioned above, Dr Jacka found that diet affects development from the very beginning of life. Giving your little one a healthy dose of plants to build up their gut microbiome is an excellent way to give them a head start in life. Baby food can be frozen for up to six months, so it's a great way to meal prep!
