Welch’s Blueberry Fusion Muffins
Just the other day I bought blueberries on sale for buy one, get one. When I came home from the store and placed them in the refrigerator, I remember I told my husband that “I should wash and freeze these” but the time just wasn’t there and the thought never crossed my mind again. A week later, I was tossing both containers in the garbage because they had gone bad that quickly! We never got to the muffin recipe I had intended to make for the kids. It felt like such a waste and I was upset with myself or not taking the time to freeze them. What was the point of the sale and purchase if I was just going to end up tossing out the fruit?
This example of waste is one reason I love frozen fruit. Frozen fruit is perfect for baking treats, creating healthy smoothies, many breakfast foods and more! The fruit is also frozen at its freshest point giving you that high quality, perfect taste straight from the bag. I also can use the fruit at the time I choose instead of having to monitor it for refrigerator life and rush to a recipe I am not ready to make.
This past week I gave Welch’s Frozen Fruits a try. My family loves muffins, one of our favorite muffin recipes is a blueberry muffin one that was passed down from my grandmother to my mother and now me. My children love muffins for breakfast, snacks, desserts and in their lunch box. I love that Welch’s Blueberry Fusion flavor is available at any time at my local Mejier store – this means I can make my recipe with the convenience of ingredients in my pantry and berries in my freezer. It upped our family recipe by adding with the blueberries a touch of cherries and mango (from the Welch’s Blueberry Fusion bag) and it came out delicious – simply pure joy in every bite!
I shopped at my local Meijer. You can see the Welch’s Frozen Fruit 48 oz Blueberry Fusion in the frozen aisle. I found it near the frozen desserts and breakfast items. Right now if you shop at Meijer, Shaw’s, Shoprite, Big Y, Jewel, or Hannaford’s, be sure to take this $1.00 off on Welch’s Frozen Fruit coupon. This coupon is good from October 1st, 2016 to November 30th, 2016. I bet these would be good for some holiday recipes. When shopping, consider these other flavors – Welch’s 48 oz Tropical Blend and Welch’s 48 oz Antioxidant Blend.
