Sweet Summer Treats: Frozen Fresh Fruit Pops Recipe

RSS
Toddler boss had to go to the doctor twice in three days (including once for shots…ouch!), so it's been a rough week to say the least.  When even Doc McStuffins couldn't come to the rescue, I figured that there was no better time to try out my Tovolo twin pop molds as I tried to get back in her good graces.  The end results were a smashing success! Riley loves smoothies, so I knew that she would love each of the yummy combos I created since they’re essentially smoothies on a stick.

I kept it simple--just the fruits and coconut milk or Greek yogurt, which are all you need to make these treats something that the whole family will enjoy.  You can add a little agave nectar, if you want to, but otherwise, they are super delish as is. Use fruit that’s a little on the riper side to add even more sweetness.


RECOMMENDED AGES: Toddlers 18+ months, although you can serve just the smoothies in a sippy cup starting at 9 months or once your baby has tried all of the ingredients.  Click here to download our easy baby food reference chart to keep track of what foods you can introduce to your baby and when.

SERVINGS: One batch makes four double pops or eight singles.  Enjoy any leftovers in a smoothie while you wait for the pops to freeze.
