    Foods You Didn't Know You Can Freeze!

    Foods You Didn't Know You Can Freeze!

    2 minute read from ICON Meals collaborator, Meal Prep On Fleek and Feeding Littles! (please go give them a like and share! There's a TON of useful tips here!)

    You can freeze more than veggies, fruits and meats! Have you been using your freezer more lately?

    Freezing food before it expires helps us waste less food and gives us more options for later. It’s also convenient for items bought in large containers, as you don’t have to worry about eating it all before it goes bad.

    If you’re not using the original container which has the expiration date, make sure to label anything you freeze with the date and content.

    Here are some thawing and use instructions for each of these foods.

    Note: guidelines on freezing/thawing vary depending on the source.⠀

    ➕Eggs: thaw in the fridge or under cold water and use in baked goods, French toast or in omelets/scrambled eggs.

    ➕Tortillas: thaw in the refrigerator before use, then heat as needed.

    ➕Butter: thaw in the refrigerator. If you need to use it right away as melted butter, place on a hot pan or in the microwave straight from the freezer.

    ➕Cheese: freeze blocks of cheese or shredded cheese. Soft cheese can get crumbly when frozen whole, so stick to harder or aged cheeses. Thaw in the refrigerator. Since its texture may change, it’s ideal to thaw and serve melted or in a recipe.

    ➕Avocados: avocados from frozen are best in guacamole, dip, sauces or spreads {not eaten as whole pieces}. Thaw in the refrigerator before using.

    Hummus: leave some space at the top of the container for the hummus to expand in the freezer. Some recommend covering with a layer of olive oil. You can also put the hummus container directly in the freezer if you haven’t opened it yet. Thaw in the refrigerator.
