Healthy recipe including frozen berries?

I have a ton of frozen berries and am not sure what to do with them! I can only eat so much yogurt! Any recipe ideas for me that don't include a ton of calories or a ton of sugar?

  • Put them in a baking dish and make a topping with oatmeal, a little brown sugar, cinnamon and butter, and bake it for a while (til the berry part is all bubbly and the topping is golden brown). If you don't like oatmeal, make drop biscuits out of bisquick and use that as a topping. We used to have this a lot when I was a kid and we picked a ton of berries. I loved to eat it in a bowl with milk poured on top.

  • make smoothies :) I use low fat yogurt, 1% or non fat milk, a few ice cubes, and the berries, my kids love them.

  • Pour batter about 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared griddle. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, until bubbly. Flip, and continue cooking until lightly browned

  • I make muffins, pancakes, jam/jelly, smoothies (all fruit, no dairy). I have a ton of blueberries & strawberries in my freezer right now, they'll mainly be made into muffins/pancakes (bb) and jam (sb).
