Once the raspberries are completely frozen, take the cookie sheets out of the freezer and place the frozen berries in plastic quart size Ziploc type bags. If you do not like using these types of plastic bags, then you can try storing your frozen berries in quart size Ball or Mason Jars with screw lids.

Immediately place the sealed Ziploc bags or Ball jars back into freezer, being careful not to let the raspberries thaw at all.

The frozen raspberries need to remain Frozen so they stay individually separated which makes them so easy to take out the bag. You can take one, a handful or a cupful. Just rinse quickly under water prior to eat or using in recipes.

Here is a simple healthy idea that I make everyday for my husband’s lunch……it works so great for his lunchbox!!!!

If you are watching the amount of sugar in your yogurt, then consider simply buying or making plain yogurt and adding your own fruit and Pyure Organic All-Purpose Blend Stevia Sweetener

  1.  Spoon the plain yogurt into a small 8 ounce canning jar (I use Nancy’s Organic Plain Yogurt)
  2.  Sprinkle one teaspoon of Pyure Stevia Blend sweetener
  3.  Rinse 5 to 6 of your frozen raspberries with water, shake off excess water, dry with towel
  4. Place clean raspberries on top of yo
  5.  Top with a lid and put in lunchbox
