The Squeeze Me company is launching a range of frozen fruit smoothie blends to remove the hassle of making smoothies at home.

Blendies, available from Waitrose now, consists of two chopped frozen fruit mixes designed to be blended with 250ml of fresh fruit juice to make a "no-mess" smoothie.

Available in packs of four 120g portions, the range comes in a blueberry, raspberry & strawberry mix and a pineapple, mango & strawberry blend (rsp: £3.99 per pack).

It would appeal to "time-poor consumers struggling to juggle busy lifestyles to keep up their healthy-eating regimes", said founder Juliet Little, who set up the company in 2005.

Other Squeeze Me products include a range of leaf teas.
