How to Make Mixed Berry Scones
Can I Use Frozen Berries in this Scone Recipe?
You can absolutely use frozen berries in this recipe! Let the berries thaw and drain before adding them to the mixture. Using frozen berries does not change the SmartPoints value, of course.
Can I Use Other Berries?
Feel free to switch up the berries to what your family likes the most. Try blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, or even pomegranate seeds. Blueberry scones have always been one of my favorites!
Berries and pomegranate seeds are so good for you, supplying antioxidants and fiber. They are also low in calories.
A three-ounce serving of blackberries is less than 40 calories. In fact, all fresh berries and other fresh fruits are zero points on the Weight Watchers plan, so eat up and enjoy all those delicious benefits.
And for something a little different on the dessert side, try these strawberry scones. So good!
Can I Freeze These Mixed Berry Scones?
You can totally freeze these scones. I wrap them each in a piece of wax paper and then add them to a large airtight zip baggie. Try to press as much as the air out of the bag as you can.
The scones will keep for two to three months. Just pop one or two into the oven or microwave for a short time and you'll have an almost fresh scone to enjoy.
