Recipes for your Nom Nom Kids Pouch
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.
Apple and Raspberry Puree May 05 2014, 0 Comments
Another easy puree to make for your little ones. This is really delicious and the colour is fantastic.
2 large apples or 3 medium apples (choose a variety such as Pink Lady or Royal Gala as they are soft and not too tart)
Peel the apples and chop them up into small slices. Place them in a pan with the water.
Bring the pan to the boil and simmer for 5-6 minutes with the lid on. Stir several times to ensure that all of the apple pieces soften. Once the apple slices have softened add everything into the blender or use a hand blender directly in the pan. Add the raspberries to the softened apples and blend until smooth.
This puree will have some pips in it. If your baby or child doesn't like this you can push the mixture through a seive to remove them. To save time and effort blend only a small amount of apple with the raspberries initially and seive this only. You can then add the smooth puree to the remaining apples for further blending.
leave the mixture to cool slightly before adding it to you pouches. The mixture will thicken up when cooled. If it's too thick mix in a little more water.
The above ingredients will make approximately 2-3 pouches.
