Get Some Healthy Fruit into Your Family’s Diet This Winter with Nature’s Peak Frozen Fruit (Giveaway)


During the winter months, fresh fruit can be tough to find, and when you do find it, it often costs a fortune! A great way to get some fruit into your family’s diet during the winter months is to find it in the frozen foods section of the grocery store. One terrific product that’s in the freezer section of our local store is the Nature’s Peak line of premium frozen fruit!

Nature’s Peak fruit is quick frozen at the peak of ripeness, so it’s just as nutritious as fresh fruit. I received a bag of Nature’s Peak Wild Blueberries and a bag of Sunburst Mango to try. First, I checked the ingredient list. There was just one ingredient on each package: blueberries and mangoes! That’s because there’s no sugar or other additives in the package: just fruit. It also comes in a resealable pouch so you can just take out what you need and put the rest back in the freezer.

Our fruit was delicious! One of my sons and I were gobbling up a bowl of blueberries for a great healthy treat yesterday. Yum! Following are the varieties of Nature’s Peak that are available. Notice that they come in both single-fruit and multi-fruit varieties.

Sun Ripened Trio (strawberries, mangoes, peaches)
Berry Quartet (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries)
Summer Fruit Salad (strawberries, honeydew melon, peaches, pineapple, red grapes)
Paradise Fruit Medley (kiwi, mango, peaches, pineapple, cantaloupe)
Wild Blueberries
Sunburst Mango
Ruby Raspberries
Whole Country Strawberries
Sliced Country Strawberries
Cranberry Harvest Cranberries
Aloha Gold™ Pineapple

I love their website, www.naturespeakfrozen.com, because they have some wonderful recipes there, such as Fiesta Tropical Crepes, Mango Black Bean Salsa, Smoothies, Berry Quartet Cheesecake Pie, and much more.

Nature’s Peak Frozen Fruit is currently available in the following locations: Florida (all regions); New England (all regions); New Jersey (all regions); Maryland (all regions); Virginia (all regions); Washington (Seattle area); Oregon (Portland area); California (Los Angeles, San Jose areas); Arizona (Phoenix area); North Carolina (Southwest area); South Carolina (Northwest area); Georgia (Southeast and Northeast areas); Missouri (Northern area); Louisiana (New Orleans area); Arkansas (Little Rock area).
