Clearly fresh bags, fruit salad and smoothie


I am glad I got the opportunity to test this fabulous product. Hope you get a chance to use these as well.
During Summer fruits ripe faster hence spoil faster, so I tested some bananas inside the clearly fresh bags and some outside. The bananas I put in the bag and the ones left outside both had the same firmness and spots.
I was surprised to find the bananas inside the bags less ripe and still firm compared to the bananas outside the bag. The bananas inside the bag aren't troubled by fruit flies either :)

The result of the bananas in one day.

I also placed fresh raspberries in the bag and left them in the freezer to use when it is not in season.

The reason these bags differ from the other brands is because it has BreathWay technology which allows the uncooked fruits and vegetables to breathe naturally and last longer. These ziplock bags don't need to be thrown out after one use so there is more value in it.

I used the ripe bananas with the raspberries and mango for a healthy delicious smoothie.


1 banana ripe
1/2 cup mangoes
1/4 cup raspberries
1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp sugar
ice cubes or water

Blend all together and serve chilled. I liked the taste of this smoothie better with mango.


This beautiful pink is without mango.
