What I do in Fruit Towers: I’m also a Field Sales Developer. I drive a grassy van and get our drinks into our drinkers’ local shops in Dublin and Leinster.

1)      What’s your spirit fruit?

I am like a pear it will take a little bit of time for me to ripen but when I do, I am really enjoyable, full of juice and just waiting to be taken to the picnic.

2)      What’s your favourite colour?

My favourite colour is blue, goes with all the good things in life, blue skies, the big blue sea.

3)      Tell us an interesting fact about yourself?

I am a windsurfing and sailing instructor and have taught various people across Europe. I worked as an instructor for 6 years during the summer in between college.

4)      Aside from working with the rest of the Dub Towers team, what is your favourite part about working at innocent?

Driving the grassy van around. The reaction I get in the van can vary from shock and awe to laughter and astonishment. It doesn’t matter how young or old the person is when they see it, there is nearly always a reaction.

Cool coconuts

While the sun seems to have left us temporarily, we like to remain optimistic here at Fruit Towers. While we await the big yellow orb in the sky to make its return, we’ve been getting prepared by making these fruity, naturally hydrating ice pops. There’s a COOL idea. Geddit? Ice lollies? Cold? COOL idea? Nevermind.  

Have a go at the recipe below, here’s what you’ll need:

 

  • 1 litre of coconut water
  • Fresh berries of your choice. We used 2 kiwis, 200g of strawberries and 200g of raspberries but you can use whatever tickles your fancy. Don’t forget to add in some extra for essential snacking.
  • 8 plastic ice pop moulds OR you can go DIY and use plastic cups and popsicle sticks.

 

 

Once you have all your tasty ingredients chopped and at the ready you can get down to making your ice pops.

All you have to do is place whatever mixture of fruit chunks you want in the mould or plastic cup and pour in your coconut water. Just make sure there’s enough coconut water in the mould so that the fruit chunks will freeze together in one ice pop shaped ice cube.

Pop them in the freezer and after 2-3 hours you’ll have a tasty, fruity, hydrating ice pop to cool you down after a day in the sun. Easy peasy.
