Frozen Snack Attack

I love buying and eating seasonal fruits, but I wait (and wait) for Summer's explosion of flavors, colors and varieties. Nothing like fresh Summer berries! Rather than waiting, this time of year I stock the freezer with organic frozen fruits. Wonderful to have on hand for breakfast smoothies, quick to defrost for yogurt or oatmeal topping, or right out of the bag, into a bowl and eaten as a refreshing snack or cool dessert.

More cost friendly and local than the fresh organic and non-organic cousins that demand high prices from far away places, I'm a fan of the frozen organics. Please read the label to confirm where the fruit is coming from and watch for no extra sugar added.

Next time you're in the grocery store or craving berries, pick-up a bag or two. And come Summer, think about buying local flats from your farmers market and pack your freezer for 2013!
