Fast & Fruity 10 ways for School holidays {Giveaway}

A few weeks ago we received samples of Fast and Fruity , new pourable chunky fruit puree.

All natural Fast & Fruity is delicious , with no added sugar [natural fruit sugar only]. It is also gluten free, with no added preservatives [As far as I can see there are no nasty numbers], sulphites or sodium , 99% fat free. It's nothing like baby puree.

While I still prefer my boys eat real fruit , which they do at the rate of 2-3 pieces a day or more -each. It has some fast , handy uses.

Now when we run out of fruit, I can save a 1hr trip into town. Fast & Fruity has ten servings per 500g pack, it's resealable and once opened lasts 5 days in the Fridge.

Unlike tinned fruit, the Fast & Fruity pouches deliver fruit that does not contain sugary syrup, which means more real fruit and less sugar.

Fast & Fruity range suggested uses and recipes

  1. Fruit ice blocks, 
  2. Hummingbird cakes and 
  3. Fruit muffins
  4. Tropical fruit jelly

  5. We add a generous squirt to 
  6. Porridge,weetbix, and muesli...(when they eat all the bananas & my fresh/frozen berries)

  7. After a training run I love it  
  8. With natural yoghurt for a fast tasty protein /fruit snack.

  9. Over ice-cream instead of sugary toppings.
  10. Added to Fresh Fruit to make make favourite crumble.
  11. Swirled over pancakes 
  12. Fruit & Yoghurt Smoothies
 Shhh - Lastly, a treat for MUM only  -when the school holidays get too much, I'm told they make great tropical cocktails. Mix Fast Fruity  with vodka, ice, mineral water  in your blender - pour into a long glass and serve!
Disclaimer - I haven't tested #11 - I'm not drinking much alcohol and it's only day 1 of our school holidays. So far so good and it's their birthday.

Keeping children active and amused through the school holidays can be challenging , then you have to keep feeding them.
