How to make Fruit Slush for your reusable pouches July 11 2014, 0 Comments
As a child I loved slushies, I particularly loved the Slush Puppy ones that you could get in our local high street but they used to have so many additives in them that I would get all wheezy! My parents bought us a slush mug one year and my sister, brother and I made slushies all summer. They were fantastic for keeping us cool but we did argue over that slushie mug as it would only make one cup at a time!
If you don’t happen to have a slushie maker you can just blend up a selection of frozen fruits mixed with some orange juice and you get an incredible healthy slush that you can add to your Nom Nom Kids Reusable Pouches for drinking whilst playing out in the garden or in the paddling pool. Frozen fruit is so widely available now in supermarkets or you can freeze your own in zip lock bags ready to use as and when you need it.
125g frozen fruit such as melon, pineapple, mango, peach, strawberry,
100ml fresh orange juice from the fridge
Place the frozen fruit and the orange juice in the food processer and blend until slushy. Add a little extra if needed to either help the fruit blend or to make the slush less thick. I squeezed a fresh orange as I didn't have orange juice in the house!
Spoon into your Nom Nom Kids Pouches and eat immediately!
You can also place the filled pouches straight into the freezer for eating later. Remove from the freezer and wait until they thaw enough to suck through the spout.
I used frozen summer fruits for this photograph which did have some bits in. Fruits such as Mango, peach, strawberry, kiwi, melon all work really well and won't have any bits for your little one to complain about!
The above ingredients will make approximately 2 pouch servings.
