I used my super simple Strawberry Banana Smoothie recipe and turned it into some frozen popsicles for the kids. It was a huge hit, so I’m going to try some new flavors soon.
All I did was pour the smoothie right into our Annabel Karmel Fill and Freeze Molds. These molds are wonderful if you have small children, because of their size and the rim that catches the melting liquid. These Tovolo Yellow Groovy Molds have great reviews if you need something more adult friendly.
Funny story about these popsicles:
I hadn’t actually planned on letting Bella have one. She was sitting in her Bumbo beside Bryson when I gave him one. The instant she spotted it, she began trying to take it away from him. On a whim, I decided I would grab her one and see what she thought. I never expected her to actually eat it, but she did. She ate the entire popsicle, quicker than Bryson did. She was crazy about it! So, her first “real food” ended up being a strawberry banana popsicle. That most certainly wasn’t part of my plan, but it made for one happy baby. I think these will be great for soothing sore gums when she starts teething too.
Do you make homemade popsicles?
Now that’s just cute enough watching her eat that popsicle. We have molds and we make them occassionally, but for as good and easy as they are, we don’t make them enough.
I like your blog design, by the way.
What a great treat, especially during the summer! My grandsons would love to eat that popsicle!
This sounds so good. Very creative of you. And the face on your baby is priceless.
