New Fruit-tastic recipes from Fruit Bowl!

I refuse to believe summer is over even if the weather hasn't been that great lately. I am hoping the weather does what it usually does and turns back to summer when the kids go back to school. hehehe

Summer fruits

This summer Fruit Bowl are on a mission to help parents get their kids outside and active! They have created activities which provide parents with all the inspiration they need to get kids away from screens, outside and active play. Just what we need for the last couple of weeks of the summer holidays.

As part of this Summer campaign, Jemma Loi has teamed up with Fruit Bowl to create some fun Summer recipes that are quick and easy to put together, cost effective, and encourage kids to enjoy fruit in an exciting way!

Mango and Yogurt Lollies

You will need:
Blender / food processor
Horizontal lolly moulds and sticks

Fruit Bowl Juicy Yogurt Raisins
4 tbsp Greek Yogurt
150g frozen mango
1 tbsp honey
50ml orange juice

Lay your lolly moulds on a work surface and fill the middle strip with Fruit Bowl Juicy Yogurt Raisins, then cover with a tbsp of Greek Yogurt.
In a blender, whizz your mango, orange juice, and honey until smooth and pour over the yogurt mixture.
Leave to set for 5 to 6 hours and you have a tasty, healthy treat with a fun hidden surprise

Mango ice lollies and watermelon ice lollies

Watermelon Lollies.

You will need:
A blender / food processor
Upright lolly mould and sticks

1/2 a small watermelon or 1/4 of a large one
3 kiwi fruits
Fruit Bowl Blackcurrant Flakes

Chop your watermelon and puree in a blender.
Divide a bag of Fruit Bowl Blackcurrant Flakes between four lolly moulds, pressing some against the side walls of the moulds as 'pips'.
Pour in the watermelon puree until about 1cm from the top and freeze for 2 - 3 hours.
Peel and puree the kiwis and remove the moulds from the freezer. At this point the watermelon should be starting to freeze enough to insert the sticks. Then top with the kiwi puree and leave to freeze completely

Fruity Treasure Parcels.

A fun and simple way to encourage kids eat more fruit, in an exciting and tasty way! These Fruity Treasure Parcels can be filled with any fruit or Fruit Bowl products of your choice, making them great for using up leftover fruit and ensuring every time is a surprise!

Makes 4

You will need:
4 sheets of Vietnamese Rice Paper
4 - 6 different types of fruits chopped up:
A handful of blueberries
A handful of strawberries
2 chopped apricots
1 kiwi
Fresh pineapple
Your favourite Fruit Bowl products.
Fruit Bowl Strawberry Peelers
Fruit Bowl Raspberry School Bar
Fruit Bowl Blackcurrant Flakes
Fruit Bowl Strawberry Yogurt Flakes

To dip:
Fruit Coulis, Yogurt, Chocolate Sauce

To prepare your rice paper, soak in water for 1 - 2 minutes until it starts to soften, then lay on a chopping board.
Fill the middle with the fresh fruit and Fruit Bowl products of your choice, ensuring you leave an inch at each end.
Fold the end edges in towards the fruit then roll the long sides up and wrap around the fruit, like you are rolling a burrito!
For the dips, you can keep it super simple and healthy with fresh yogurt or fruit coulis or be a bit decadent and melt some chocolate!
