With life still on hold a bit right now, I find myself going out less and less. When it comes to grocery shopping, I’m trying to take fewer trips. This means I’m using more canned and frozen goods to cook with.
Recently, I shared THIS post full of recipes that use frozen vegetables so it’s only fair that I show you how I’m using frozen fruit plus some yummy recipes for you to try. These recipes made with frozen fruit use simple ingredients and are super easy to make so the kids can help.
I mostly make smoothies when I use frozen fruit but there are lots of other fun recipes to try. Let’s check some out!
Compote & Sauce Recipes Using Frozen Fruit
Our summer mornings are pretty lazy. We have more time to relax instead of full steam ahead to get out the door and to school on time. More time in the morning means more time for cooking yummy breakfast foods.
Compotes and sauces are a great use for frozen fruit and are a perfect topping for pancakes, French Toast, & waffles. They can also be thrown on toast, oatmeal, yogurt, scones or some fresh homemade bread.

Like I said before, I love to use frozen fruit in my smoothie recipes. My two favorite combos are Mango, Pineapple, Carrots, & Coconut milk and Banana, Blueberries, Spinach, and Almond Milk. You can freeze the spinach and bananas so they last longer and then use frozen fruit for the rest.
I’m excited to try some new recipes and these smoothie and smoothie bowls sound delicious and healthy!
