It’s only been two weeks into our school year and I am already finding myself in a lunchbox rut. Freezer cooking to the rescue! Every month, I plan to try a lunch box friendly recipe and share my results.
This month I choose Frozen Fruit Cups to try. These healthy cups are full of fresh fruit with a little orange juice. Verdict: They are delicious! However, they melted too much before my daughter’s lunch time. So, instead of packing these in her lunchbox, we are using these as a healthy after school snack.
