How to Freeze Pureed Beans

The Weight-Loss Hack You Can Use at Every Meal

If you struggle to get enough fiber or protein into your day, this healthy hack was made just for you. Beans are an excellent source of both, which is why eating them can help you lose weight. It's also an incredibly easy way to use up an entire can at once.

Puree a can of beans, freeze the puree, and use these magical frozen bean cubes in anything you can think of. Add one to your bowl of oatmeal, throw a few in the blender when whipping up your kale smoothie, or mix them into pasta sauce, soups, or cooked whole grains. Each cube offers grams of protein and grams of fiber, and will not affect the taste of the dish. One cube is 26 calories, and offers 1.3 grams of fiber and 1.6 grams of fiber.
