Sharing the taste of summer all year round with farm fresh blueberries and raspberries in an allergy friendly frozen dessert everyone can enjoy!
June 10, 2019 (Yakima, Washington) – People are seeking easy and delicious ways to increase their fruit and vegetable consumption. According the Medical News Today, fruits deliver essential vitamins and minerals, a healthy dose of antioxidants, and flavonoids which are important for preventing disease. Berries are especially powerful for preventing disease, providing a wide range of health-boosting antioxidants.1 For a healthy daily dose of antioxidant-rich berries, Sorbatto’s Raspberry Frosty Blue smoothly blends their farm fresh berries with only four ingredients, fresh frozen raspberries, fresh frozen blueberries from their farm, fresh lemon, and a little sugar, making a frozen dessert transforming the frozen dessert experience, as a fruit-based frozen food that is vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, nut free, and soy free.
Combining blueberries with raspberries, Sorbatto selects a variety of raspberry for the highest flavor that is like eating raspberries straight off the bush. Raspberries, just like blueberries, are a non-climacteric fruit, which means they cannot ripen after they’re picked. Sorbatto ensures the ripeness of the season is put into every pint in using freshly picked and ripened Washington raspberries. The flavors pair perfect with a little lemon and sugar, not too much, for the fruits to lend their own natural sweetness. The Raspberry Frosty Blue tastes like berries in dreamy fresh frozen goodness that has a smooth, rich, light, fluffy texture.
As fourth generation family farmers, the Weijohn family created Sorbatto’s Frosty Blue line of 6 nutrient-rich delicious flavors all with a homegrown blueberry base: Blue Passion, Grape, Dark Blue (with infusions of dark chocolate), Blackberry, Lemon and Raspberry. The Weijohn family developed Sorbatto’s Frosty Blue sharing their love of farm fresh frozen fruit in a delightful new experience of fresh fruit frozen desserts.
Combining blueberries into each of their flavor integrates the health benefits of blueberries that are high in antioxidants and phyto-nutrients. Blueberries are considered a powerful superfood which are nutrient dense, low in calories, and high in fiber. Recent studies now show that frozen fruits and vegetables have similar and sometimes higher nutritional benefits to fresh produce.
For a delightful refreshing treat, The Weijohn family shared one of their farm recipes for their Raspberry Blue Frosty – Rhubarb Raspberry Lemonade!
