Toddlers eating popsicles are messy messy messy. It was 90 degrees today so I took Juliet outside to enjoy a homemade popsicle, wearing a diaper only, I'm no fool. She enjoyed sharing her treat with me, it was tasty and she really loved it. Every time it dripped she said "uh oh", which was, of course, darling. She is 17 months today!
This recipe can be changed based on your favorite fruit. You may end up with some extra liquid after pouring into the molds, I just poured it into a cup and Juliet drank it like a smoothie.
Berry yogurt popsicles
1 cup fresh or frozen berries (I used frozen raspberries)
1 cup whole milk yogurt
1/2 cup whole milk
2 Tablespoons natural sweetener such as honey or pure maple syrup (I used maple syrup)
Optional: 1/4 cup fruit puree (I added prunes, Juliet loves them and they are functional too...you know what I mean) You could also add a pouch puree such as Ella's Organic Pouch or Happy Baby Pouches, for added nutrition
Combine all the above ingredients in a blender and blend until completely smooth. Divide evenly among 4 popsicle molds (I found ours at Target). Add a wooden popsicle stick and freeze for a minimum of 5 hours.
To remove the frozen popsicle, run under warm water for about 20 seconds.
