Let These Frozen Berry Recipe Ideas Chase Away the Winter Blues!

Frozen Berry Recipe Ideas

By Andrea, Contributing Writer

By February, I am tired of winter. Living in Colorado, the winter means crops are dormant. Any fresh fruits or vegetables we get are usually trucked in from a warmer part of the country.

This is the time of year when I am so thankful for frozen berries.

Nothing speaks to me of the promise of spring quite like the taste of berries. The burst of sweetness from a frozen berry can transport me to warm summer memories.

Using frozen berries in recipes definitely chases away my winter blues.

If you have never frozen fresh berries for yourself, make sure you bookmark (or pin!) Freezing Raspberries and Strawberries. I promise you that next February when you open your freezer to find a little taste of summer tucked inside, you will be so grateful you froze those berries for yourself!

Although not all of these recipes specify “frozen berries,” frozen berries will work just as well as fresh.


Smoothies are such a great way to use frozen berries, and there are so many different smoothie combinations. Try some of these favorites to get your berry fix in the middle of winter.

Are you or your family struggling with health challenges? Is it time to make some changes? Maybe you already know that you WANT to do things differently in your home -- use better products, buy real, wholesome foods, prepare more from-scratch meals, even use home remedies instead of medication when you're sick. But do you have all the tools you need to make it happen?

That's why we created the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle. We spent months searching for the very best, most practical healthy living resources we could find, like real food recipes (we have some for gluten & grain free, too), DIY tutorials for home and beauty, solid nutrition information, home remedies, essential oil courses and books, workouts for moms, meal planning help and more. The entire package is worth over $1000, but our whole goal is to make it totally affordable for anyone. At just $30, it's cheaper than a doctor's visit, filling a prescription, or even eating dinner as a family out at a restaurant!

To make it more of a no-brainer, we partnered up with 10 natural living sponsors who are offering you over $200 in free bonuses that you can redeem, just because you bought a bundle. And to say a special "thank you!" to my readers who buy through this site, I've got an extra special webinar that I want to invite you to.

The one catch? It's available for just 2 MORE DAYS (ends 11:59pm Monday, Sept.15th). So you don't to wait! Click here to learn more about what's in this year's phenomenal package and then pick one up for yourself. You'll be glad you did!

  1. We make strawberry and raspberry freezer jam that uses much less sugar than regular cooked jam and tastes like fresh berries. My latest creation is an ice cream “cake” using vanilla ice cream blended with a pint of strawberry freezer jam and the juice and zest of one lemon, poured into a loaf pan lined with plastic wrap, then topped with another pint of jam and refrozen. It was delicious!

  2. I love this post! We freeze berries all the time, but never use them for anything other than smoothies. Thank you for the collection of recipe ideas… they will be getting put to use soon in our house!

  3. My favourite thing to do with frozen berries lately is to cook them slightly over the stove and then add real maple syrup or honey and use it for pancakes, yogurt, etc. So yummy!

  4. Yes! But this year we ate so many I didn’t get to stash enough in the freezer–my little guy eats more than his share and isn’t old enough to help pick much yet :) And I wish we had a u-pick raspberry farm. That’s something I’d like to freeze more of.

    You can also freeze apples and have fresh apple pie and crisp in February :)

  5. Yum! Summer berries certainly do bring a little sunshine to the table on cold winter days. Thank you so much for sharing a couple of our favorites. Love this collection of frozen berry recipes. Thank you! :)
