Purple Raspberry Breakfast Slurpee

Getting decent fruit in the winter is a pain. There’s always that stretch of time where the only thing decent is apples and oranges… and a bunch of other anemic out-of-season choices like those bloated, slightly crunchy half-green strawberries.

Enter frozen summer fruit. I try to make this slurpee most mornings- its like your whole day’s worth of fibre and raw fruits in a glass (and raw is so important!). I find, using the red grapes is the perfect amount of sweetener. You could always use a banana, but lately I prefer the clear berry taste combination. And once it melts a bit,  smell it- its like fresh purpley summer.

If you ever have fruit in your fridge thats going over-ripe, just freeze it on cookie sheets and then put into re-sealable bags (I like to wrap in parchment paper first to minimize plastic contact but thats just me being anal lol).  You’ll be able to use the fruit in smoothies, puree and throw into baked goods, etc.

  1. It seems it’s too early for me to spell. Maybe you should put the monitoring/accepting my comments thing on so you can fix my typos. That said, you are notorious at them. :)

  2. berry picking! definite childhood memory. Strawberries and raspberries we always picked at Cosmos in Embrun, Peaches this year at the Lansdowne Farmers Market were unreal- they were humungus! Apparently the farmers drove them up always the night before directly from the peach grove. They had literally been picked only 6 hours before.

  3. Last year I froze a ludicrous amount of summer in-season fruit. Strawberries and raspberries in June, peaches and blueberries in August, oh and I froze applesauce and pumpkin puree in the fall. Still have lots so I’ve been baking and making smoothies. But I’ll try this. In winter, I also stick to Caribbean fruit that are now in pesticides, such as bananas, oranges, cantaloupe, pineapple and mango.
