CUPBOARD LOVE : Freeze-Dried Fruits


I found these in the baking section in Waitrose the other day and thought I'd try them. They're quite a speciality food and at £2 a tube to be used sparingly, but I thought they looked so attractive I'd give them a whirl.
You can have up to 5g for 0pp/15kcal. They barely register on the kitchen scales as they have no volume to them, so 5g would be plenty to sprinkle over 4 desserts. They have a concentrated tangy flavour - a gorgeous strong version of whichever fruit you are trying. 



The strawberry is quite sour, zingy and does a little dance on your tongue...



...The mango is vibrant, much sweeter.

I've had a quick look and you can also buy a similar product on Amazon.
With Easter coming up, I've devised a really cute idea which use these freeze-dried fruits, so I thought I'd give you some advance warning so you can have them at the ready. I feel that if we are going for low-fat options, we still need a little treat thrown in and these make a gorgeous contribution to my Easter idea.
Don't worry if they don't appeal to you, or you can't get hold of any, the idea will still work well without them.
