What Can You Do With Frozen Raspberries?

Frozen raspberries close up.

Frozen berries are ideal for any application in which the texture of the berries must be broken down in some way, such as by blending or heating. Frozen berries work well in smoothies, mousses, cakes, and other desserts. We’ll go through a few dishes that you can make with frozen raspberries in this blog.

Slushies with raspberry lemonade

Ingredients

  • 600 g raspberries, frozen
  • 3 lemons, juiced
  • 225 milliliters of carbonated water
  • 9 cubes of ice (roughly 170g)
  • 3 tablespoons agave nectar

Method

  • In a blender or food processor, pulse all of the ingredients until they form a creamy slush. To serve, divide the mixture into six jars or glasses.

Raspberry and limoncello semi-freddo

Ingredients

  • 70 percent cocoa solids, 225g dark chocolate
  • 175 grams unsalted butter, diced
  • 2 tsp extract de vanille
  • 14 teaspoon instant coffee powder (or coffee extract)
  • 100 g almonds, roasted
  • 2 heaping tablespoons plain flour
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 5 eggs
  • 140g caster sugar (golden)
  • 12 raspberries, fresh or defrosted frozen, plus around 40 extra for decorating
  • 4 tbsp raspberry preserves
  • To make the glazing
  • 70 percent cocoa solids, 140g dark chocolate, chopped
  • Double cream, 100ml
  • to serve, icing sugar and delicious vanilla cream

Method

STEP ONE

Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius/140 degrees Celsius fan/gas 3. Using baking parchment, line the bottoms of two 23cm cake tins. Microwave the chocolate and butter until smooth, then set aside to cool. Combine the vanilla and coffee powder in a mixing bowl.

STEP TWO

In a food processor, finely grind the almonds, then add the flour and salt and transfer to a bowl. With an electric mixer, whisk the eggs for 5 minutes, or until they have doubled in volume. Slowly drizzle in the sugar and stir for another minute. Stir in the cooled chocolate mixture until it is completely blended. Fold in half of the flour mixture first, then the other half. The batter will be somewhat runny.

STEP THREE

Bake for 15 minutes, or until a fork inserted into the sponges comes out with a few crumbs attached — the sponges should be slightly undercooked. Allow to cool in the tin before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

STEP FOUR

Choose the less perfect of the two and place it on a dish to serve. 12 raspberries, mashed, with the jam. Spread over the bottom of the cake, then top with the remaining cake.

FINAL STEP

Bring the cream to a boil for the glaze, then pour it over the chocolate and stir until smooth. Allow to thicken for a few minutes before spreading over the top and sides to cover. Garnish with raspberries. Refrigerate for up to 24 hours. 1 hour before serving, remove from fridge, dust with icing sugar, and serve with vanilla cream.

Berry Bircher

Ingredients

  • 70g oat porridge
  • 2 tablespoons golden linseed
  • 2 bananas, ripe

Method

STEP ONE

Pour 200ml boiling water over the oats and seeds in a mixing dish and whisk thoroughly. Mash together the bananas and three-quarters of the raspberries (set aside the rest to chill), then cover and refrigerate overnight.

STEP TWO

Layer the raspberry oats with the yoghurt in two tumblers or bowls the next day, then top with the reserved raspberries and serve.
