Cool Down – Love Smoothies

frozen fruitA while a go I wrote about my daughters strange obsession with frozen peas. More recently she’s on frozen raspberries, blueberries and grapes. They all seem to calm her down on these hot sunny days and are a great alternative to lollies and ice cream. I’m not sure she’s even knows she’s eating fruit.

When I was asked to try out Love Smoothies I said no at first. Product testing is not really my thing as I am way to honest and can’t stop myself telling the truth. And truth is, most prepackaged stuff is crap, overpriced and made by multinationals disguising themselves under friendly little brands. Out of curiosity I had a look at their website and this looked different so I agreed to give it a go.

Oh yes, I remember, my clever husband tried to chop mixed nuts and a large bar of chocolate in my blender to make a birthday cake a few months ago. Bugger. No blender.

After a trip to Argos we were all set. They whizz up in about 30 seconds and make a big glass of thick frozen smoothie. Easy peasy. Plenty for 2 kids, we even added a bit more apple juice and shared it 3 ways.

The kids LOVED them.

Love Smoothie have a lovely warm and fluffy ethos, and as well working with an amazing charity supporting kids in Guatemala, they are ‘always wondering how they could do things better.’ All their packaging and point of sale is made from recycled stock and bio-plastics so all in all they are a jolly thoughtful bunch who make yummy smoothies!

We gave Love Smoothies a delicious 9 out of 10. It would have been 10 but i am still convinced that I could do it myself, (in another life where I also make my own raspberry jam and award-winning Victoria sponges).

    They look gorgeous, and a great way to get kids having some fruit. We got a smoothie maker as a perk from our gym a couple of months ago so I wouldn’t even need to pop to Argos 🙂 popping over from pocolo
