Frozen strawberries and frozen Kiwi fruit.

I froze some strawberries and kiwi fruit for some reason, and now no idea what to do with them? Any ideas?

I have frozen strawberries too, sizzles. I'm thinking of making sauce to pour over poundcake or ice cream. You could also make smoothies in the blender.

Sizzles, I would thaw them first for the sauce, but probably just throw them in the blender frozen for smoothies.

Sauce: thaw, add sugar to berries in saucepan. Heat on medium (?) and reduce until syrupy. Strain before using.

Smoothie: frozen berries, a little apple juice, a little sugar in the blender. Maybe an ice cube or two if you prefer your smoothie a little slushier.

I would turn them into frozen yogurt! All you need is some thick, creamy yogurt (Greek style is lovely for this), a pinch of sugar if you like and the frozen fruit. Throw them all into your food processor and pulse until they are well combined (but try to keep some little pieces of fruit intact). If you don't eat the frozen yogurt right away, place it into a freezer-safe container where it should keep for at least a week
