Eat Your Veg | Blackberry & Apple Yogurt FoolWell hi there folks! It’s me, long lost Louisa back after my few weeks of time out. Not exactly a conscious decision to be away from my beloved blog for so long, just the school holidays getting the better of me for a pleasant change. And I am so glad they did, we’ve had a great time. Though the barrage of recipes, reviews and round-ups I’m left with is quite frankly a frightening prospect. But alas I’m here now and you’d better brace yourselves for a bit on an Eat Your Veg onslaught!.

Have you heard of Nom Nom Kids Pouches? They’re cute-as-pie reusable food pouches to fill with your own purees, smoothies, yogurts or baby food. A great way to feed your kids exactly what you want them to eat when on the go in a convenient, mess free and fun way. They’re easily filled and super easy to clean using the double zip lock side opening. Perfect for weaning babies as well as nursery, pre-school and school lunch boxes.


I was delighted to be asked by Suzanne, the lady behind Nom Nom Kids pouches and who happens to live locally to me in neighbouring county Worcestershire, to write a pouch suitable recipe for her site and as a recipe card to hand out to her customers. Taking a seasonal slant I opted for a made in minutes Blackberry & Apple Yogurt Fool and Suzanne also selected my Sweet Potato Daal recipe to use too (one of my own children’s early faves).

This really is a simple as can be pud, great for a quickie family dessert or for an on-the-go snack for your baby or little one. And handily can be made in advance and kept in the fridge for several days. Healthy too, bursting with cooked apples, blackberries and Greek yogurt and only a teeny weeny bit of soft brown sugar to sweeten.

Do check out Suzanne’s other pouch recipes on her site.

Blackberry & Apple Yogurt Fool: Goodbye Holidays and Hello Autumn

Ingredients Prep Time:5 mins, Cook Time: 8 mins , Total Time: 13 mins plus cooling time

For a Family of Four:
1 large cooking apple, peeled, cored and sliced (200g prepared weight)
120g blackberries, washed
1 tablespoon + 1 dessertspoon soft brown sugar
300ml Greek yogurt

1) Place the apple, blackberries, one tablespoon of sugar and one tablespoon of water in a saucepan. Place on a medium heat with the lid on and cook for 5 – 8 minutes until fully soft and the apple ‘fluffed’.
2) Blitz the apples and blackberries with a hand held stick blender or in a processor. For a very smooth and seedless puree push through a sieve. Set aside until fully cooled.
3) Stir the remaining dessertspoon of sugar through the Greek yogurt.
4) Swirl the cooled fruit puree through the yogurt. If serving in bowls try not to over stir so as to keep a nice swirly pattern running through.

    They sound a great idea. I always fed the Glams the same food as us when they were little but transporting it could be a problem. Love the recipe, fool makes a great dessert and this is a lovely hedgerow version. GG
