    Yes I do have a blender. I normally make strawberry and banana or just one of the other never thought of mixing necterines in though. Which works better milk or fruit juice? The only juice I have is apple though. I knew you guys would come to my rescue you thank you so much.

    I think im also attempting to avoid boyf - he will be up for another couple of hours and I know he will ask me to get him something to eat first - so im trying to avoid the inevitable!!

    Well, I've used all 3, it depends what I feel like. I find the ones with milk in go really thick and frothy, because they are essentially a milkshake. They are my fave at the moment, and I suppose you are getting your calcium too.

    I also have lots of kiwi's and cherries to use up soon, along with my usually bucket load of strawberries and grapes etc. Quite fancy stewing the cherries - crumble or just with custard/cream?
  • Do you have a yoghurt maker? Make some fruit yoghurt, or else buy cheap plain yoghurt and chop up fruit to make a cheap and healthy dessert for the family. Also, put the bananas under the grill on high and let the skins blacken, then peel and serve hot, they taste caramelised but are still good for you (I am just having one) yum yum!!

    how about fruit kebabs?

    and i know some fruit can be frozen.

    what about crumble? or chocolate fondue?

    do you have any elderly/ill relatives or neighbours who would appreciate a small fruit basket?

    If the bananas go a bit mushy by the end of the week, why not try making banana bread?

    Do you have any alcohol around? Put the fruit in a jar and cover with vodka, whisky, whatever. Come Chr****as, you'll have the yummiest trifle ever, and a nice bottle of liqueur too!

    Oh I wish I had this problem. I know it's healthy to eat fruit, but my lot go through roughly 15 pieces a fruit a day or more. I can't keep the fruit bowl filled. It costs a flippin fortune.
