Frozen fruit is a handy ingredient that can perk up a winter kitchen, and even serves some purposes that fresh doesn’t. Here are some favorite ways Chowhounds use frozen fruit:

• In smoothies, instead of ice
• Blended into slushy rum drinks
• Microwaved until warm and used to top ice cream, plain yogurt, oatmeal, pancakes, or waffles
• Chopped in a food processor and pulsed with yogurt and honey for instant frozen yogurt
• Microwaved with sugar and a bit of lemon juice to make instant jam, no pectin needed
• Turned into a baking dish, topped with a simple cobbler or crisp topping, and baked
• Tossed with a bit of flour and folded into muffin batter
