Seasonal Produce = Nutrition & Money Savings
A cost effective and delicious way to take advantage of summer’s fresh berries is to buy in bulk and freeze them. I found a deal on a huge case of blueberries. I kept some for eating and some for freezing. And my favorite thing to do with frozen berries is whipping them up into delicious fruit smoothies.
Blend together your favorite yogurt (I steer clear of fat-free varieties to avoid artifical sweeteners. Plus the bit of fat in the yogurt provides a creamier texture and helps ignite those hormones which tell your body that you are satisfied!), a bit of milk, and some frozen berries. For an added kick you can sprinkle cinnamon or ginger in as well. And that’s it! In a matter of minutes you have a a delicious and refreshing snack. Enjoy!
