Using frozen raspberries is a simple and easy way to elevate your recipes and meals without any additional cleanup required. They’re chock full of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, as well as fiber, and are frozen using just cold air.
Plus, frozen raspberries are available in the freezer section of your grocery store year-round, so it’s always raspberry season.
Here are 10 easy ways to add frozen raspberries to mealtime:
- Make it a PB & Raspberry. Start your day with a slice of peanut butter toast topped with a heaping spoonful of thawed and crush red raspberries.
- Stir it in to oatmeal. Drop a handful of raspberries into a simmering pot or bowl of oatmeal – the vibrant juices will burst and naturally sweeten your oats.
- Poured over a stack of pancakes as a “syrupy” topping. Make a quick Raspberry Cane Syrup to add a satisfying sweet-tart topping to your stack of pancakes or waffles.
- Top on grilled meats or seafood. Compliment grilled meat flawlessly with a simple raspberry reduction. Reduce frozen raspberries over low-heat with a light pour of balsamic vinegar, spices of your choice and a touch of butter for a savory compote.
- Use as the base of sweet-savory salsa. Add fruit-filled flavor to chip’s favorite companion.
- Raise the bar with raspberry cocktails. Use in a raspberry-infused Cosmo or drop whole frozen raspberries in a glass of Prosecco.
- Whisk it in a salad dressing. Blend together olive oil, your favorite vinegar, frozen raspberries, and a clove or two of garlic for a stellar raspberry vinaigrette. Or, for a pink-hued creamy dressing your kids will love, try a homemade Raspberry Ranch!
- Make it a marinade. In a ziplock-style bag, add thawed raspberries along with lemon or lime, spices and herbs such as ginger, cinnamon, dried chili flakes, or thyme. Mash together and add meat or seafood. Allow to marinade before heating up the grill!
- Added to a fruit punch. Add a festive touch to your holiday punch or a raspberry red color and flare to your springtime sangria – toss in a full bag of frozen red raspberries.
- Elevate simple desserts. Use as a filling or topping on pavlova, fold into fools, layer in parfaits or top on vanilla ice cream.
