We all know the importance of getting plenty of fruits and veggies into our diets, but sometimes that can be a challenge. Freeze-dried fruit is a tasty and delicious way to eat more fruit because all of the moisture from the original fruit is removed, resulting in a light, crispy texture and concentrated flavor that’s perfect for snacking. Best of all, since only the water content is removed, the fruit still contains nearly all of its original nutritional content! Freeze-dried fruit is the perfect healthy snack for anyone who’s on the go. Check out the top 10 places to take freeze-dried fruit below.
