Sick Day Treat: Orange-Pineapple Popsicles Recipe
Toddler boss is at home sick with me today, so I decided to cheer her up a bit with these yummy Vitamin C-packed homemade popsicles. She LOVED them; and the best thing is that I kept it simple--just freshly squeezed orange and pineapple juices minus the pulp (courtesy of my Breville juicer) that I poured into my Tovolo twin pop molds.
RECOMMENDED AGES: Toddlers 18+ months, although you can serve the diluted juice starting at 12+ months or once your baby has tried both 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 (about ½ cup) in a refreshing juice shooter while you wait for the pops to freeze.
PREP TIME: 5 mins
FREEZING TIME: 6-8 hours
*Tip: If you plan on drinking the leftovers, refrigerate your fruit beforehand.
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (about 4 medium-sized oranges)
1 cup freshly squeezed pineapple juice (about 2 cups chopped pineapple; about ½ of a small pineapple)
1. Juice both fruits and pour the juices into a small pitcher; mix thoroughly.
2. Use a funnel to pour the mixture into the pop containers.
3. Freeze for 6-8 hours (or until frozen) before serving.
4. If you have difficulty pulling them out, try running the bottom (not the handle) under warm water to loosen.
5. Break double pops into two singles for smaller hands.
