School Lunchbox Fruit Freezies
Author Wendy Allott
Whether the thought of the school year starting fills you with dread or delight, we all have to face it. Make it a bit easier by having a stash of these healthy and tasty Fruit Freezies in the freezer.
: 15 minutes plus 6 - 8 hours freezing time.
1 punnet blueberries
1 punnet strawberries
20 seedless grapes
Wash the fruit. Halve the strawberries and grapes. Put the strawberries, grapes and blueberries into a bowl and mix.
Blend the watermelon in a blender until liquid.
Add to the other fruit and mix through.
Line a 12 serve, 1 cup capacity, muffin pan with plastic wrap. Alternatively use a silicone muffin pan. Ladle the fruit mix into the muffin cups and freeze for 6 - 8 hours or overnight.
You'll notice I forgot to line my muffin tin. Oops! Use a bath of hot water to help release the freezies and turn out. This will make them a bit slushy on the bottom.
Once frozen, remove from pan and store in a zip lock bag, in the freezer, until needed.
To serve, put in a liquid-tight container in the morning and put in lunch box with a spoon. By snack time the fruit will be soft and slushy and ready to eat.
