In the summer I like to keep different organic fruits in the freezer (Target usually has them the cheapest around me) and keep a few cans of organic coconut milk in the pantry (usually Trader Joe’s brand). That way I’ve already got 1/2 of the ingredients I use in my smoothies, frosty treats and popsicles.
