Its Day 5 and we are talking about THRIVE Fruits! I love our THRIVE Fruits. They are just amazing. They are the perfect snack or dessert. The flavors and smells and colors are so rich. Toss your favorites in a blender with a little yogurt or milk or juice and ice and you have a delicious smoothie. Powder it dry in a blender to make baby food or use to color and flavor cookies or cakes. Most of the time I just eat them dry or add them to cereals or oatmeal. Reconstitute them and use them just like fresh in any recipe, like this one. My kids sneak into them, so I recommend keeping them our of reach of children unless you are ok with them eating the whole can in one sitting.
TipOne of the more difficult items to store long term is the fats/oil group. But some fruits can be substituted for oils in recipes. For example Applesauce can be easily substituted for the oils in cakes and muffins. Bananas are another great fruit that can be used in place of eggs in many recipes. So I recommend storing a little extra of these items in your long term storage.
