    Frozen fruit is fine and defintely cheaper out of season. I use it a lot although you may find that it is more watery than fresh fruit.

    Some fruit freezes better than others - strawberries end up quite watery but other berries work well. When you defrost them, you often get a lot of juice but it's all tasty.
    Never had frozen pineapple but I imagine it would be okay.

    I like mixing frozen berries with VLF natural yoghurt - the yoghurt freezes slightly with the cold fruit and it makes like an ice-cream type texture and it's really nice! More of a summer thing than winter really though, lol!

    I used frozen mixed berries (strawberry, cranberry, rasps, blueberries) last night as part of a dessert and they were really good. Always to hand and much cheaper than fresh but still taste as good. I would thoroughly recommend them!

    I use the frozen fruit (defrosted) in my porridge in the morning - dark cherries are my fave - esp with some cherry muller light stirred in too (instead of milk so you don't have to use a HExA.

    I like the Waitrose frozen Blackforest Fruits - it makes my Oatso Simple purple though but the big black cherries are worth it!

    I used to get the forst fruit because of the cherries, then thought, why not just get the cherries. I love my porridge now.

    I use frozen fruit all the time, especially blueberries (so expensive in the shops), rhubarb, raspberries & lots of others but will agree strawbs don't freeze well.

    Farm Foods sell frozen fruit for £1 - bargin :)

    I have frozen grapes and peeled bananas, both can be eaten from the freezer without out defrosting, great for nibbling in the evening.

    I dont mind a bit of mush with forst fruits and general frozen berries, and they'r fab on top a merigue.

    but i find having them to hand, ona week when im really trying to boost weight loss, 2 bowls of forest fruits/ frozen berries and lots of water does the trick. i think they'r fab and far cheaper.

    I've found that tesco frozen fruits are a bit watery but i'll keep trying until I find some that i like as its so expensive to buy fresh fruit all the time. The frozen tropical fruits sound lovely
