Fruity Treats from Fruit Bowl for National Picnic Week!

My family and I do love a picnic and the fruit snack brand Fruit Bowl have a tasty recipe to inject some fruity fun into National Picnic Week.

Ideal for enjoying outdoors with the children, these recipes are the perfect sweet addition to your picnic basket and are both made with products that count towards your child’s five a day!

Try Fruit Bowl’s Puff Pastry Peeler Twists, simple and quick to make with just puff pastry and Fruit Bowl’s Fruit Peelers, or have a go at Fruit Bowl’s Fruit Flake Jellies for a refreshing twist on classic jelly with the addition of delicious, chewy fruit pieces.

Puff Pastry Peeler Twists Recipe:
Makes 35


1 sheet of ready rolled puff pastry.
One box of Fruit Bowl Fruit Peelers.


Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan) and line a large baking tray with parchment.
Roll out the sheet of puff pastry so that it is landscape and cut into 1cm strips.
Take your Fruit Peelers and separate them.
Roll each piece of Fruit Peeler up in a strip of puff pastry and place on the lined baking tray.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until puffed and golden.
Allow to cool before serving.

Fruit Flake Jellies

3 x 65g sachets of vege-gel
200ml sugar free blackcurrant cordial
200ml sugar free raspberry cordial
200ml sugar free strawberry cordial
1050ml cold water
1 Multipack Fruit Bowl Unicorn Fruit Flakes


Pour 200ml cold water into a jug and sprinkle one sachet of vege-gel on top. 
Whisk until fully dissolved. 
Microwave for 2 minutes to bring it up to a boil, or do this in a pan on the stove. 
Add in 200ml of blackcurrant cordial followed by 150ml of cold water. 
Give the mixture a good stir. 
Pour into containers, filling a third of the way up, then place into the fridge for at least 30 mins to set. 
Once this layer has set, sprinkle the Fruit Bowl Unicorn Fruit Flakes on top and set to one side. 
Repeat steps 1-7 for the raspberry jelly and then again, once set for the strawberry jelly.
