Better Than Ever: Torani Fruit Puree Blends

Wednesday April 1, 2015 // By Landon Christensen

One of the fastest growing trends right now in cafes and restaurants is fruit flavored beverages. Handcrafted sodas, lemonades, smoothies, and fruit flavored cocktails are among some of the more popular and continue to perform better year over year. One issue that many operators may encounter is how to provide not only an excellent, bold, fruit flavor profile, but also appeal to customers’ desire for beverages made with real ingredients. Let’s keep in mind you need to turn out such drinks in a timely fashion and most likely won’t have time to cut up fresh fruit on the spot, but if you do, more power to you. Torani has solved this problem quite beautifully with their line of fruit puree blends.

Torani PureeUsing a fruit puree can be the perfect solution for those looking to use something besides a syrup, but can’t use real fruit. Now, don’t get smoothie concentrates and fruit purees confused. While fruit purees can be used to prepare smoothies, they can also do so much more than that. As I mentioned earlier, handcrafted sodas, lemonades, smoothies, and fruit cocktails are excellent applications for these fruit purees. Since purees are, by nature, quite different from syrups they make a big impact on the beverage they are used in. Italian sodas, for example, can be made with regular syrups, however, when made with fruit puree a new depth is added to the overall flavor. Not only are these purees perfect for adding a little pop to your beverages, but they make life a breeze on the operator. Torani recently redesigned the bottle of its’ purees, making it much easier to use, downsizing to a 1 liter bottle that can be managed with a single hand. Torani designed a new pour spout for convenient dispensing, but also offer 1 oz. pumps if you prefer to have more control over how much you dispense at one time. Torani offers puree blends in the following flavors: Banana, Mango, Peach, Pina Colada, Raspberry, Strawberry, and Mixed Berry. All are made with real fruit, natural colors, flavors, and sweeteners. In addition to all of the above, they are shelf stable; no refrigeration required, saving you precious space in the fridge which can be difficult to find in a busy cafe.
