Thrive’s March monthly delivery specials had a few fruits that I thought would make for a yummy dessert. I have heard of granny cakes where you substitute the oil in a cake recipe for canned fruit and decided to make a jar meal version using freeze-dried fruits. It’s nice to have meals in an emergency but it’s REALLY nice to have desserts!
Check out what all the March Thrive Life monthly specials are!
