Frosty fruity treats to beat the summer heat.


Chilled fresh and fruity plums, peaches and nectarines are excellent for cooling down

on a hot summer’s day. Besides packing a low-calorie nutritious punch, these stone

fruit are incredibly versatile and delicious. They are great on their own straight from

the fridge and make the most refreshing frozen treats.


Jam-packed with frosty flavour, Chef Jenny Morris puts plums to good use with her

revitalising frozen plum lollies that are loaded with yummy goodness.


With peaches in peak season, try your hand at Jenny’s frozen peach & yoghurt

shake that captures the flavours of summer in a glass. Jenny suggests pouring the

peach shake into a flask for your child to enjoy perfectly chilled at school.


Plums, peaches and nectarines are naturally sweet super fruit with a low glycaemic

index (GI). They are high in fibre and abound in health-giving potassium and

vitamins A, C and E, all-powerful antioxidants that protect against disease and help

to build healthy minds and bodies.


Stone fruit are at their most satisfying when enjoyed perfectly ripe. Be sure to test

the fruit for optimal ripeness by lightly pressing the skin. If still firm to the touch, allow

them to ripen in a fruit bowl or place them in a pierced paper bag at room

temperature. Only keep the fruit in the fridge once completely ripe to safeguard their

sweet, juicy flavour.
