Lunchbox Freezer Cooking: Frozen Fruit Cups

Posted By Dana S On September 18, 2012 @ 5:15 pm In After School Snacks,batch cooking,Freezer Friendly,Healthy Snacks,Lunch,Recipes | 5 Comments

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.
