  1. Rinse and completely dry the berries. Moisture is the enemy, unless you like freezer-burnt fruit. Small berries like blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries can be frozen whole. Stem strawberries and halve or quarter large ones.
  2. Arrange the berries in a single layer on a parchment- (or wax-paper-) lined rimmed sheet pan. Don't just toss the unfrozen berries into a freezer-safe bag; if you do this, they'll freeze into a brick of berries that'll need to be chipped apart before using.
  3. Once frozen, transfer to freezer-safe bags. We like to separate them into individual bags that hold just enough berries for a smoothie, so there's no guesswork (or measuring needed) when you're tired and looking to blitz your way to breakfast.
