Why we've partnered with the sustainable straw company - Stroodles

We’re always looking to partner with companies that value sustainability as much as we do and that’s why this month we’re excited to be working with Stroodles to mix up a delicious selection of drinks recipes for when you’re feeling adventurous. 

 

Stroodles create eco-friendly tableware. Explore their website to find everything from edible bowls and plates, to pasta straws and cocoa spoons. All of their products are 100% biodegradable and good for the planet. Stroodles kindly sent us some of their drinking straws to pair with some brand new drinking recipes. We’re particularly partial to a sustainable alternative to single-use plastic and couldn’t wait to try them out.

Mixed fruit Bumbleberry smoothie recipe  

Berry smoothie with Frobishers Bumbleberry Juice

 

If you’ve already tried our Bumbleberry juice you’ll know how moreish it is! We’ve created our very own recipe using the juice and adding in some extras for a smoothie you’re bound to love. This is a great child-friendly smoothie recipe and an easy one that can be made together as a family. It’s also a really delicious mid-week, on-the-go breakfast option thanks to the oats and yoghurt. 

Ingredients - 

  • 450g frozen berries
  • 300g strawberry yoghurt
  • 50ml milk (or dairy-free alternative)
  • 200ml Frobishers Bumbleberry Juice
  • 20g porridge oats
  • 2 tsp honey 
  • Fresh blackberries

 

Blend all of your ingredients together and finish off with a few fresh blackberries and your edible Stroodle straw. 

Bloody Mary recipe 

Bloody Mary with Frobishers Tomato Juice

 

We’re huge fans of a Bloody Mary cocktail and we know you’re going to love this recipe. The perfect evening treat for those who prefer a savoury post-dinner cocktail. 

Ingredients - 

  • Large handful of ice
  • 100ml vodka
  • 500ml Frobishers Tomato Juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice, plus 2 slices to serve
  • A few shakes of Worcestershire sauce 
  • A few shakes of Tabasco (if you like spice)
  • A pinch of celery salt
  • A pinch of black pepper 
  • 2 celery sticks to serve

 

This is super simple to construct. All you need to do is stir together your ingredients and serve with a sprinkling of salt and pepper, add a slice of lime and 2 celery sticks. Don’t forget to pop in your edible pasta straw too. 

Not just a tableware company...

Stroodles is a movement and their aim is to fight plastic waste one Stroodle at a time. Change should be easy!

We love using Stroodles pasta straws for many reasons, but the main one is that we no longer have to enjoy our delicious soft drinks through a soggy paper straw! Swapping single-use plastic tableware for biodegradable, edible alternatives is a lovely way to make a sustainable decision for the whole family whilst keeping things fun. We’d love to hear your thoughts on these recipes so send us a DM on Instagram and let us know how you get on!
