Easy baby/toddler popsicles

Who doesn’t love popsicles?

And with summer approaching and warmer weather we all crave for some delicious cold ice-cream/popsicles.

Sisira doesn’t have sweet tooth so it was easy for me to keep her away from all the sugary stuff available in the market. But toddlers as they grow they see, read and learn new things and her new favorite is popsicles.

I don’t want her to feed on the store bought ones which usually have lot of corn syrup/processed sugar and food dyes. This doesn’t mean she can never have them…;-)

Then, why not let her enjoy and also get some nourishment too.

So I have been working on making some healthy popsicles from fruits and veggies purees and they are turning out delicious and creamy ( with no ice pellets).

Here is the recipe of 2 of our favorites so far  and the combinations are endless.

Berries and cucumber.

Cucumber – 1/2

Berries – 1 cup ( any mix)

Honey – 2 tsp

Milk (whole /coconut) – 1 cup (I used coconut milk)

Honey Mango

Mango – 1( pitted)

Milk – 1 cup( I used whole milk)

Honey – 2 tsp

Nuts/spices – optional ( we like the plain mango flavor)

First blend the coconut/whole milk for couple of minutes until frothy. Then add the veggies or fruit and blend it all together for another 2 minutes. The mixture gets thick and creamy. Pour into molds and freeze atleast for 6 hours.

You can adjust the sweet levels as per you taste.

These popsicles are light and not very sweet and oh, full of flavor.

Try these with your baby/toddler’s favorite fruits and veggies and for lactose intolerance/vegan you can use almond milk too.

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby and recently mother to an adorable little munchkin :-), an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and now currently @Portland, Oregan. Recently relocated from The Grand Canyon State and still adjusting to the gloomy weather here... When we first we moved to US(2012) ,our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
