This smooth puree from the chefs at Piccolo is a delicious combination of juicy tropical mango and apple with zingy green kale and a swirl of smooth yoghurt.
It also makes great breakfast smoothies for grownups, or you can freeze it in lolly trays for a summer (or er, autumn) yoghurt ice lolly!
A handful of curly kale, washed and tough stems removed
½ an apple, peeled, cored and chopped into chunks
1 small ripe pear, peeled, cored and chopped into chunks
½ a mango, peeled and de-stoned
2 tbsp of full fat natural or greek yoghurt
1. Place the apple in a steamer (add the pear also if not quite ripe) and steam for five minutes, then add the kale and continue steaming for a further 4 minutes until the kale is just wilted and the apples are soft.
2. Remove the apple and kale from the steamer and place into a blender or a bowl which works with a hand blender and blend until smooth and you only get very small kale bits. Add the pear, mango chunks and yoghurt and blend together.

Piccolo’s founder, Cat, enjoyed a varied diet from a young age, including plenty of fruit and veg, pasta, pulses and a little meat. Lovingly-prepared food is part of her DNA. It is the way she was brought up, and the way she feeds her family and daughter, Juliet.
She continues to spend her time tracking down the best and the freshest, locally-sourced ingredients, experimenting with recipes, and sharing her culinary creations with the most people that she can squeeze around her kitchen table.
