    How do you get on with this? Do you let it defrost completely? I've got a bag in my freezer and was tempted by the berries too but am very fussy about fruit being just ripe when I eat it :-S

    I usually cover in yogurt and eat still mostly frozen, but sometimes I eat them defrosted. :)

    I used to heat it up in microwave and pour a yog on top. I didn't cook it just heated it through.

    I mostly eat them with yougurt as 'dessert'. They're nice put in the bottom of a bowl with low sugar jelly poured over the top and some fat free yougurt, feels a bit like trifle.

    Also I like doing the porridge thing or you try with weetabix.

    Also there's a recipe on the website for a summer pudding that uses bread and berries that is lovely.

    I like them a bit frozen too but my teeth can't always cope!

    I like my frozen berries partially defrosted too! Nice to have a bit of 'crunch' to them. Most of the berries defrost perfectly fine, but I'm not keen on the strawberries that way - they go a bit soggy.

    I finally got round to trying frozen summer berries today... Put them in porridge with a teaspoon of splenda. They were so sour and tart! Should I be putting more sweetener in?

    I used mine in my porridge alternative (don't like the stuff) Healthy extra muesli portion, 1 grated apple, loaded of FF yoghurt and hand full of frozen berries. I let that soak overnight and take it with me on the morning I go to the gym before work. Really tasty!

    Do you grate your apple the day before too? Does it not go brown?

    Yep - me too. I like the fact that the frozen banana defrosts really soft and makes my porridge creamy.

    I like to blitz it up with a glug of milk or yogurt makes it like sorbet/ice cream is 3 syns for 200g of berries but makes a HUGE bowl full.

    When I have bananas that are getting a bit too ripe (or if there are some reduced at the supermarket) I chop them into slices and lay them on greaseproof paper (actually I've just bought a reusable teflon sheet for the job now) in a single layer. Once frozen I transfer them to a freezer bag.

    I tend to just use them for the porridge - it works out more economical and means I can make my breakfast with just one eye open.

    Am thinking of buying some chocolate sauce to squirt over a few slices to eat half frozen when I get sweet cravings though.

    I think it's Pete that has a recipe on here for ice cream that he makes using frozen bananas.
