In this edition of Good Food Good Life we look at something to cool you off during the Dog Days of Summer. Frozen Fruit, always adds to Good Food Good Life ways of living.

Four Ways to Enjoy Frozen Fruit!

Summer is the season with some of the greatest food, and Good Food Good Life in addition to beautifully ripe fruits are no exception. Stick the fruit you purchase at the Farmers Market in the freezer for a few hours and you’ve got the perfect treat with the potential to cool you down on a hot summer day.

Frozen Grapes:  Throw a handful (or more) of grapes in the freezer for a few hours and you’ll end up with a healthy icy treat. Princeton knows what’s up in their article about the many uses of frozen grapes.  While freezing the grapes doesn’t do much in terms of flavor, the icy texture of the grapes is the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day. Make sure you wash before freezing.

Fruit Cubes:  During the summer months when we spend tons more time out in the hot sun, it’s more important than ever to make sure to keep your body hydrated. You’ve probably heard of the eight glasses a day rule, and there’s definitely some truth to it.  If plain water just doesn’t do it for you, these fruit cubes will make reaching your recommended hydration levels interesting. Not only do they add some fruit flavor to your drink, but they are really adorable! And fruit isn’t the only thing you can put in your cubes.
Feeling fancy? Experiment by adding mint and basil or try these inventive juice-infused cubes.

Don’t forget that we have four different Basil and Mints for you to make your summer delights with Good Food Good Life. Take advantage of our Harvest While You Wait program

Ice Pops:  Try experimenting with different combinations of your favorite fruits and fruit juices. For a clean, professional result, try investing in a set of ice pop molds.  Here’s where Vanderbilt comes in. In eight easy steps, they show you the way to make bomb frozen fruit pops.

Smoothies:  While we generally tend to think of smoothies made with fresh fruit, using frozen fruit is often a quicker and more convenient way to prepare this frozen treat—and even more cost-effective. Smoothies are the ideal way to keep you cool and fill you up this summer. In fact, you can even think of something to make with the leftover fruits in your fridge or freezer.

Always a healthy addition to your Good Food Good Life living….

Thank you: Lake Tahoe Markets
