Notes

Smart Shopping Tips
  • Buy berries in season when they are cheap and freeze for later. Wash berries and remove the green top from strawberries. Dry gently and place in a single layer on a baking sheet to freeze. When frozen, place berries in a freezer container or plastic bag.
  • Canned fruits may contain a lot of sugar. Read the label and choose fruits canned with water or 100% juice.
  • Flavored yogurt may contain sugar. Compare labels and choose the variety with the least amount.
Cooking & Serving Tips:
  • Try any combination of fruits, including blueberries, oranges or peaches.
  • Any 100% fruit juice can be used.
  • Regular or Greek yogurt may be used. Greek yogurt is thicker, more tangy and has more protein.
