Even if you are lucky enough to live in an area of the country where berries are always in season they are still a bit of a luxury. Fresh berries are pricy and go bad fairly quickly. After throwing out one too many strawberries that have molded too quickly I have taken to stocking up on frozen berries. They are less expensive and you do not need to worry about them rotting. FYI Trader Joe’s by far has the best prices on frozen fruit. Whether frozen or fresh I would encourage you to include berries in your daily diet. They are rich in vitamins, fiber and the all important antioxidants. Click here to check out strawberry PB&J flavored smoothie recipe I could not resist sharing.
