Are frozen fruits and vegetables as healthy as fresh fruit and vegetables?


Hi there and thank you for your question!

Yes, frozen fruits and vegetables can be just as healthy as fresh fruits and vegetables. Researchers have found the nutrition between frozen and fresh produce are very similar (1). Frozen produce are also a great, convenient alternative when fresh produce is unavailable or out of season.

Try frozen fruits or vegetables in one of our smoothie recipes. They can help create a nice, thick and icy texture! 

Hope this helps!
