How to Eat Your 5 Fruits & Vegetables Without Really Trying!

Okay, okay, I know this isn't going to be popular but bear with me!

If you follow the food pyramid, you know that for a balanced diet, fruits and vegetables should play a big part in our diets. But it's hard to get the full range and the taste of some of them leaves something to be desired.

That's why, when Yaya brought home a couple of cartons of carrots, eggplant, squash, apples and capsicum and they fit into her handbag, we couldn't wait to eat them!

These miniature vegetables were sweet and moreish and with 5 serves per carton,  you couldn't ask for more versatility. Okay, so they're a little fluoro ....

If you think they look a little shiny, it's not wax, it's a light glaze because these are no ordinary vegetables.

Cut one open and you get ...

... a good dose of fibre in a sweet little wrapping.

For these are mung bean sweets! Made from mung beans, coconut milk and sugar, they're a tiny morsel of goodness that is neither too sweet nor too sticky. They all taste the same so don't worry about them having hints of capsicum, carrot or eggplant. And here's where you can buy it:

Okay, so I lied about the 5 fruits and vegetables but these are pretty irresistible.... really .... :D


  1. They are brilliant! I was totally fooled for a few seconds by the way =D

  2. Such Clever Sweets

  3. They remind me of German marzipan fruit which I love. Texture even looks the same. These look awesome.

  4. Hehe I got all excited for a moment, I thought it looked too delicious to be true ;)

  5. Oh my these are so pretty - must find that shop!
