My girls are usually rather excited when I’m sent goodies to review but when they caught sight of this latest delivery from the good folk at Clearspring they were more eager than usual to get their grubby mitts on the contents.
I have to admit to not realising that Clearspring’s range now includes organic fruit purees. I know them for their wonderful Japanese ingredients, like noodles and rice crackers, and I regularly use their Miso paste in Oriental style soups. These purees were new to me but I’ll definitely be stocking up the fridge with them in future.
Containing 100% organic fruit in a variety of delicious fruity combinations, they are are made using minimal heat so the fruit retains all of its natural goodness and are completely free from sweeteners and artificial flavourings or colourings.
Not that Jess and Mia weren’t bothered about all that though. They simply thought the purees were completely delicious. We found the pots and squeezy pouches ideal for their school packed lunches and they are also fab as an instant pudding stirred into Greek yoghurt.
But the girls enjoyed them most as ice lollies. Simply pour the contents of a pot or pouch into an ice lolly mould and within a few hours you have yourself a gorgeous frozen treat. Perfect for when the kids get home from school on these lovely sunny September afternoons.
The pouches cost around 89p each while the pots are £1.29 and are available in independent health food stores and online at www.clearspring.co.uk.
