The best picks from the Trader Joe's frozen aisle

Pro tip: The Trader Joe's frozen aisle is a paradise for people who want delicious food but don't want to put in *too* much effort. Here are eight products from TJ's freezer that'll get you the most bang for your buck (in the least amount of time, might we add!).

1. Mandarin Orange Chicken


This is a staple item for your freezer (or at least it should be!). It's so quick, easy and delish. The chicken is a breeze to make and the sauce is ultra flavorful. Throw it in the air fryer for some extra crisp and pair it with jasmine rice for a well-rounded meal.

2. Hashbrowns


Ready in minutes, these hashbrowns make the perf breakfast for a busy girl on the go. Make them with your favorite breakfast sandwich, an avocado toast or just eat them on their own. Yum!

3. Joe's Diner Mac 'n Cheese


This is the creamiest, cheesiest, most mouthwatering mac 'n cheese and that's not even the best part—it'll be ready in a flash! This four-cheese delight will have you going back for seconds...and thirds...and fourths.

4. Fettuccine Alfredo


For a frozen meal, this alfredo sauce is creamy goodness paired with the perfect portion of fettuccine pasta. It tastes so fresh, you'd never guess it came from a bag.

Our advice for leveling up this meal? Throw in some chicken, broccoli and parmesan cheese and season with paprika and roasted red pepper flakes for the most decadent dish. Bellissima!

5. Cheese Filled Fiocchetti with Pink Sauce


Fiochetti is the most unique pasta shape and this one's filled with rich ricotta cheese. Just like with the fettuccine, this sauce is incredibly flavorful and creamy beyond compare! 

6. Mini Hold-the-Cone Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cones


These frozen tiny treats are the best after-dinner nightcap. The chocolate chip ice cream is delicious and the cone has a nice crisp, with the tastiest chocolate waiting for you at the bottom.

7. Chicken Burrito Bowl


This single-serving bowl makes a major lunch box must-have. We're still dreaming about the spicy sauce—let's just say it's to die for. 

8. Gone Berry Crazy Chocolate-Covered Strawberries


Craving something sweet but not in the mood for a full dessert? These delicious dark chocolate-covered, bite-sized strawberries are the perfect fix for that craving. Plus it's fruit, so it's healthy, right?
