Today's nutritious recipe from Kinder Kitchen - fruit coulis/sauce

I bought a couple of punnets of fruit the other day and beacuse the raspberries and blackberries were still a little sharp in their taste my daughter spat them out. So I decided to make a coulis/sauce with them and add them to her favourite foods.

Fruit coulis (from 9 months)

1 punnet raspberries
1 punnet blackberries
2 tablespoons icing sugar

You can add any other fruit/berries to the mixture (strawberries, kiwi's, blueberries etc). Per punnet add a spoonful of icing sugar but of course you can leave this out if you wish. This is a great receipe to use with fruit/berries that is on speical offer at the supermarket as it does not matter if they are a little bruised and starting to wilt.

1. Place the washed fruit and icing sugar into a high container
2. With a hand blender whiz all the ingredients together
3. Refrigerate immediately

Serving suggestions:
You can serve the coulis with ice cream, plain yoghurt, pancakes, porridge – basically wih any food your child likes. If you do not want the pips in the sauce, pass the coulis through a sieve.
