In the mail the other day I received a package of Smooze Fruit Ice. I’d never heard of it before but decided I needed to do something with it that was totally different than sticking the little packets in the freezer.
I got a small dish and poured the liquid into it and popped it in the freezer. I had great intentions to make it into a granita. I got delayed at an appointment so it froze more than I wanted it to before I “forked” it but this will be great as a quick bite between courses for Christmas.
My readers in the northern hemisphere, it’s freakin’ hot on Christmas day so don’t think I’m nuts on this. A quick mouth chiller served like this will be very welcome.
While I was waiting for the final freeze, I decided to look up Smooze and learn a bit about it. This was a good idea but what I should have done was frozen the spoons. It thawed rather quickly in the summer heat when I go to the photo taking.
Smooze is 100 natural and made from a base of coconut milk and real fruit. You’ll find very little small print and I love that about this product. The flavours are pineapple and coconut, pink guava and coconut (this is the one I tried to granita) and coconut and coconut and they’re available in the dessert aisles of our supermarkets here in Australia.
Kids love them and that’s good for mums and dads because there’s only 66 calories in each one. No gluten or dairy or preservatives so they’re okay for everyone. I’m going to try the pineapple and coconut next and add some rum and crushed ice and blitz it. Come to Mama, baby!
Smooze sent me some samples to review (thank you very much) and I had fun playing with it. While I got the product for free, my opinions are my own. I’d buy these. The only thing I questioned was the name.
