Healthy, Easy Fruit by Buddy Fruits

Buddy Fruits are pouches of real blended fruit that come in a variety of flavors and textures. The founders believe that healthy food is essential for a good and balanced life. In fact, they believed in this so much that they packed up their lives in France to bring their wholesome easy pouches to America! They located the very best fruit producers out there and the Husband used his own experience as a chef in creating delicious recipes that deliver 100% natural fruits.

Our household feels strongly about eating foods that are good for you. We have thrown out the junk food and are sticking to wholesome and healthy foods. The hardest category for me is always healthy snacks. There's always fresh fruit, but it tends to go bad before we eat it all. Plus, the kids love a variety and so do I. Buddy Fruits takes care of all these needs and are the perfect fit for our family.

The first thing I always do is flip a product over and read the Nutrition Information. I started with the Raspberry & Cranberry Superfruit. It caught my eye first because I love to give my children foods that are rich in antioxidants such as this one. It's only 80 calories and the ingredients are: Apple, Banana, Cranberries, Raspberry and Apple Juice Concentrate. That's it! No preservatives, no colorings, no artificial flavors and one pouch = one whole serving of fruit!

I was most excited to try the Tropical Coconut Milk. In my head, I pictured that it was a beverage... but I was totally off. It's a perfectly blended tropical oasis smoothie. Just pure blended fruit and coconut milk. I loved the tasteful mixture of the pineapple, banana and mangos. This was a delicious treat - yet - perfectly healthy!

I remember loving fruit snacks as a kid. My favorite were the gushers with the liquid filled centers. The Buddy Fruits Fruit Snacks took me back momentarily because they looked just like the fruit snacks of the past. But these tasted just like fruit! No artificial flavoring or unnecessary sugars. These are the real deal.

I would have shown the apple and banana fruit snacks, but they didn't last long in our household. Our favorite was the banana! Yum! I loved how these came in their own individual resealable packets. They are absolutely perfect for traveling or throwing into a lunch box.

Then there are all the different pouches of pure blended fruit. They are so simple to eat or drink. There is no need for spoons or straws. You simply break the seal on the cap and twist it right off. Then drink straight out of the plastic top and roll the packaging up as you go as to not waste a single drop. Should you have any leftover, you can always twist the cap back on and stick it in the fridge. These remind me a lot of the consistency of baby food but taste delicious! I loved the blended peach with skim milk and my kids loved the banana mixes. I love how easy these are to eat on the go!

Buddy Fruits are the perfect healthy snack or fruit!
