I’ll bet that you probably have a bag of frozen fruit somewhere in your freezer. And that’s great because now you can make these delicious recipes!
For many, smoothies are what come to mind first when they think of frozen fruit. And yes, this list definitely has a few scrumptious smoothie recipes.
BUT… you can do so much more with frozen fruit than you might realize. You can make things from pancakes to boozy beverages to desserts to savory appetizers.
I’ve gathered 32 of my favorite frozen fruit recipes for you to try. You’re going to love each and every one of them!
You just know that anything titled “great-grandma’s recipe” is going to be good. And it’s probably not going to be healthy.
And this fruit salad definitely toes that line. It’s made with fruit cocktail and maraschino cherries, so at first, it’s not too naughty. But then there are the rest of the ingredients.
Mayo, whipped cream, cream cheese, and marshmallows finish this dessert-like salad. Once it’s mixed, everything is frozen.
It’s creamy, refreshing, and absolutely delicious!
Speaking of fruity and frozen things, these fruit slushies are fantastic! They’re perfect on a hot summer day or any day you just want a cool treat.
These slushy cups are loaded with peaches, pineapple, bananas, mandarins, frozen strawberries, and cocktail fruit. But that’s just the solid stuff.
The slushy part is made with orange juice and lemonade frozen concentrates, 7Up, and water. It’s sweet, slushy, lightly fizzed, and super juicy!
What’s a frozen fruit roundup without a classic smoothie? This list has a few other smoothies, but this one is iconic!
This smoothie features frozen strawberries, fresh bananas, milk, and ice. It’s healthy, light, and seriously refreshing.
A strata is kind of like the lovechild of a casserole and bread pudding. And this berry strata is utterly scrumptious. It’s bready, custardy, and fantastically fruity.
Plus, it has a few unexpected ingredients that will definitely tickle your taste buds. Every bite is berry-licious and you’ll love it!
I love sweet treats that are also good for you. So, I really love this blueberry frozen yogurt. It’s refined sugar-free and loaded with whole ingredients.
It’s made with full-fat yogurt, frozen blueberries, honey, and a bit of lemon. Every spoonful is creamy and bright and bursting with blueberry goodness.
Georgia is calling and it has some delicious pie for you!
This pie features a deliciously sweet and spiced peach filling, with a homemade crust. Every bite tastes like summer.
Frozen peaches are the real MVP here, though. They will save you so much time and effort. And you don’t lose out on any freshness.
These muffins are soft, moist, and full of beautiful blueberries. Every bite is buttery and absolutely delicious.
Serve a muffin for breakfast, as a snack, as a dessert, whenever!
Start your morning off right with this delicious baked oatmeal. It’s loaded with healthy goodness, like antioxidant-rich berries, chia seeds, and wholesome oats.
What’s really great about this dish is that you can prepare it ahead of time. And when you need it, just pop it in the oven for 30 minutes.
It’s warm, flavorful, and delicious!
Attend a holiday dinner in the Midwest and there’s a chance you’ll see this dish. Strawberry Jello fruit salad is iconic. It’s sweet, jiggly, mousse-like, and delicious!
I’ve found that most folks who don’t like jello still like this. That’s because of the whipped cream. So, it has the texture of mousse more than typical Jello.
Plus, this absolutely explodes with strawberry flavor!
This blueberry kuchen is like a giant muffin! Technically, it’s cake… but it has a lovely crumble on top like a blueberry muffin. It’s sweet, moist, chock-full of blueberries, and utterly delicious.
Oh boy, this daiquiri is the bomb! It’s sweet, light, refreshing, and wonderfully boozy.
Serve this at your next party and your guests will be raving. You’re going to love it, too!
It features pureed frozen strawberries, lime juice, basil simple syrup, and white rum. It mostly tastes like strawberries, but the hints of lime and basil really add oomph.
Just be careful with these because they’re dangerously addicting.
Frozen fruits make the best sauces because they’re so darn juicy.
As you cook them, those juices release into a perfect sauce base. Add cornstarch and sugar to make them perfect.
This sauce is great because it’s tart, sweet, and chunk-a-licious.
You can use this stuff on cheesecake, toast, waffles, and more. In fact, this makes an amazing Black Forest Cake.
Who doesn’t love banana bread? It’s tropical and cakey and super delicious. When it’s done right, the top gets seriously sweet and moist.
I live for banana bread and this recipe is amazing! It’s chock-full of nuts, so the texture is insane. You’re going to love this.
Feel free to skip the nuts if you don’t like them. You can use chocolate chips or berries instead.
Sorbet seems like a fancy dessert but really, it couldn’t be easier. Or delicious!
Simply take your favorite frozen fruit and puree it with simple syrup. Then, cool it down and add it to an ice cream maker. The result is a fruity and refreshing sorbet everyone will love.
Let me introduce you to your new favorite appetizer!
This dish features brie topped with mixed berries and a drizzle of balsamic. Everything is baked until it’s lightly golden and bubbly. Then, it’s served with toasted crostinis.
It’s absolutely mouthwatering.
In true Midwestern form, there is absolutely nothing salad-y in this “salad.” But it tastes great and it’s great for guests.
And I mean… who counts calories among friends?
Essentially, this is a mini, barely baked cheesecake in a jar. I say barely baked because the only thing that needs to bake is the buttery pretzel crust.
It’s topped with a deliciously creamy vanilla filling and is topped with strawberry Jello. Can you say T-A-S-T-Y?
This fruit salad is colorful, over-the-top, and super refreshing. The peach pie filling adds a special twist that will excite your taste buds. It’s fantastic!
When you need dessert in a hurry, a cobbler is the way to go! It’s sweet, it’s fruity, and it is super easy to make.
Plus, it comes together with ingredients you probably have on hand.
This cobbler is extra yummy because it features multiple summer fruits. Blueberry and peach separately make amazing cobblers. So when you put them together… it’s flavor magic.
I said there would be more smoothies and I’ve kept my word. This peanut butter banana smoothie is a super hunger fighter!
And it just so happens to be delicious.
It’s creamy, nutty, and perfectly pleasing. It’s also full of protein, so you’ll stay full until your next meal.
Saturday mornings mean pancakes. And blueberry pancakes are the MVP!
Each bite of cake is buttery and fluffy. And when that bite includes a pop of juicy blueberry… it’s O-M-Goodness.
PRO TIP: follow the cherry sauce recipe from earlier (12), but use blueberries instead. And serve that over these amazing pancakes.
This is the perfect summer drink. It pairs earthy black tea and fresh raspberry simple syrup. The result is sweet, refreshing, and simply wonderful.
Garnish with fresh raspberries, a splash of lemon juice, and a sprig of mint.
OR… give it a grown-up twist by adding your favorite liqueurs. This would be delicious with a spiced rum.
Mango Lassis are incredibly delicious. They are an Indian drink featuring mango, yogurt, cream, and delicate Indian spices. They’re creamy and tropical.
These ice pops embody the magnificent flavors of mango lassis beautifully. And the addition of raspberry will make your taste buds dance with joy.
This is a fruity variation of the classic sweet treat. And IT IS GOOOOOD. I love lemon and blueberry and this just proves why.
The cakes are super light and fruity and the filing is wonderfully creamy. They’re sweet, with just the right amount of lip-puckering tartness.
Dump cakes are the baking god’s gift to busy people. They taste like a slightly sweeter cobbler and they are even easier to make. You can’t beat that!
There is one reason and one reason only that people go to Disney… Dole Whip.
No…? Well, at the very least, it’s one of Disney World’s most popular treats. It’s no wonder why.
Dole Whip is sweet, creamy, tropical, and refreshing. But this healthier copycat version is just as good! And you don’t need to spend the big bucks to go to Disney.
Plus, you only need three easy ingredients, a blender, and 5 minutes.
This is the last smoothie on the list but it might be my favorite.
Admittedly, it’s a shade of green that might make you rethink how edible it is. BUT I promise it tastes amazing.
It’s light and tropical, totally creamy, and seriously tasty.
Did I mention that it’s also really good for you? Well, it is! It’s loaded with healthy greens, hemp hearts, and nutritious fruits.
Millennials might only wear pink on Wednesdays, but these cupcakes wear pink every day. And they sure are pretty!
Plus, they’re moist and loaded with fresh strawberry flavor.
So, they’re absolutely delectable.
I love these topped with rich chocolate buttercream and garnished with a chocolate-covered strawberry. But cream cheese frosting, strawberry buttercream, or lemon would be good, too!
I LOVE SCONES. And blueberry scones are the creme de la creme. If you’ve never had a scone before… ya gotta try these ones! They are perfect.
The outside is golden and crispy. It gets its crunch from a dusting of coarse sugar. Inside, they’re soft and crumbly but not at all dry. Every bite is pure deliciousness.
If you’re planning a tea-themed brunch anytime soon, these scones must make an appearance. And the raspberry tea from earlier would be a nice accompaniment.
Add a little zing to your morning with this delicious smoothie bowl! It tastes like the tropics and it’s super healthy. So, this will definitely start your day off right.
This smoothie bowl features lots of green goods like spinach, avocado, and cucumber.
But wait, there’s more. Bananas, kiwi, mango, apple, and lime add nutrition and taste.
The addition of protein powder ensures that this breakfast will keep you fuller longer. This bowl is fresh and zippy and absolutely scrumptious.
Freezer jam is an easy, quick jam that anyone can make. It’s not preserved traditionally, so it has to be kept in the freezer long-term.
But honestly… this stuff probably won’t even make it to the freezer. It’s seriously delicious! It tastes so fresh and fruity that you’ll want to eat it straight from the jar.
Serve it with fresh bread, pancakes, ice cream… anything that tastes good with fruit.
Blueberry plus lemon is one of my favorite flavor combinations. These flavors work so well together and I don’t think they’re paired enough. Enter this delicious curd.
If you’ve never had lemon curd, you’ve been missing out. It’s bright, tart, and citrusy. It adds much-needed lightness to many rich desserts.
When you add blueberries, it gets even better. This curd is a little sweeter, thanks to the berries. But it still cuts through super saccharine desserts.
And the color? Whoa, it’s beautiful!
I love this curd in cakes, but it’s delicious on muffins, toast, or ice cream.
What’s not to love about strawberry shortcake? Berries and cream on a deliciously soft biscuit… it’s oh so delicious. This dessert just screams summer.
And since it uses frozen berries, you can still get that summer feeling in winter!
