Did you know that there’s a big difference between freeze dried fruit and regular dried fruit? In fact, a 1/4-cup serving of freeze dried fruit only has about 25 calories, while the same serving of regular dried fruit can have as much as 100 calories. If you use a recipe that calls for a whole cup, that’d be a difference of 300 calories — more than a Snicker’s bar!
So if you’re planning on making any kind of delicious food that calls for fruit, reach for freeze dried fruit, instead. Here are just a few such recipes worth a shot.
Freeze Dried Smoothies.
Unfortunately, there is no one perfect smoothie to rule them all. Some people like more fruit in theirs, while others prefer to go heavier with the yogurt. No matter what your preference is, gather up some of your preferred freeze dried fruit — like strawberries — some Greek yogurt, and some juice (Naked brand juice works great) and blend until it’s nice and smooth.
These only take five minutes to make, serve four people, and are incredibly easy to whip up. Grab three cups of nonfat yogurt, some freeze dried fruit, and some granola. Alternately layer each ingredient in a glass, and et voila!
Freeze Dried Fruit Powder.
Before you start, it’s important to note that fruit powder isn’t meant to be eaten on its own. It’s used as a great way to figuratively spice up another dish, like a frosting, oatmeal, or even a meat-rub. All you have to do is put the freeze dried fruit in a blender and blend it until it’s a fine powder, and there you have it.
Freeze dried food companies’ products are much better for you, and taste great. So the next time you’re planning on making a nice, strawberry smoothie, reach for some freeze dried strawberries instead.
