Looking for an inexpensive way to cool off? There’s no need to empty your pockets for an ice cream from the ice cream truck, or drive down to the nearest snow cone shack, you have everything you need for some frozen treats at home!
A few of my most favorite fruits to freeze are listed below. I am not 100% sure of how long you will need to keep each in the freezer, so I’d just play around with it, checking on them every couple hours.
Frozen fruit is the best. Not only is it super yummy and cool, but it’s healthy as well! If you have kids, trying a few of these could help you to get your kid to try a new fruit, or look at a fruit they may have previously refused in a new light. (Be careful though, frozen fruit can pose a serious choking hazard, make sure that you supervise your kids as they eat some of these.)
Grapes: An old favorite, we’ve been freezing grapes at home since I was a kid. I completely prefer frozen grapes to the regular ones.
Pineapple: Cut up some pineapple into small chunks and freeze them! Bonus points for dipping them into chocolate beforehand for an extra yummy treat.
Banana: Have you ever had a frozen chocolate covered banana? They sell them at theme parks, and they are divine! But even if you choose to just slice up the banana and freeze that, it will still be delicious.
Cherries: I just tried this yesterday, and it was a success! I had actually frozen them overnight because I forgot about them, so I left them out on the counter for a few minutes to thaw out a tiny bit. With the cherries, you will need to be careful with the pit. It is quite a bit harder to get rid of in the frozen cherry.
Blueberries: My new favorite! Frozen blueberries are amazing. Just toss a handful into a Ziploc and place it in the freezer for a couple hours.
In addition to eating these, the frozen fruits also work great added to drinks like Sprite for a little added flavor and color pop.
Do you have any fruits that you just love frozen? I’ve heard good things about frozen watermelon, but I’ve never tried it! Let us know in the comments below!
