Homemade Ice Pops
Homemade ice pops are a fantastic way to enjoy fruit. You can make homemade ones for less money and with less sugar than store-bought.
They easily lend themselves to “help” from your little one. Little ones love helping wash fruit, measuring out yogurt, and pressing the buttons on blenders.
And, they’re fun to eat!
While not a new invention (I remember eating them as a kid), they’re enjoying a revitalization. Perhaps it’s because companies are now making non-plastic molds, such as stainless steel.
I created the 4 recipes here. But there are lots and lots out there – they’re even on this month’s front cover of Canadian Living. Each of these recipes makes 4 – 6 ice pops (depending on the size of your container). But, don’t worry if you have leftover mixture because they make great smoothies!
This is a great use for the coconut water that’s available everywhere these days, providing electrolytes for hot, sweaty days.
Tropical, refreshing and fun!
A great use for in-season, local strawberries. Note: don’t give honey to babies younger than 12 months old.
Blueberry Banana Yogurt
Creamy and refreshing. While you don’t taste the lemon juice, it awakens the blueberry flavor.
