Did you know that almost all of the nutrients in fruits and vegetables are preserved during the freezing process? It’s true! This means that choosing frozen is just as smart as choosing fresh, especially when most fruits and vegetables are out of season. Choosing frozen fruit, mainly during the winter months, to make this crumble is a great choice! Fresh OR frozen fruit will offer you fiber, vitamins and minerals to help keep your immune system going strong! Serve with a scoop of frozen yogurt for a healthier dessert alternative.
