Popsicle is a new concept for me as there are no popsicles where I come from. Since having a toddler, I quickly realized that it’s a very popular product in the U.S. among the kids. However, I wasn’t impressed by the look of some popsicles in a grocery store. A lot of them look too bright for a fruity treat and surely too sweet. Also some have substances to keep them from dripping too much. Well, it is probably not news for local moms that you can make your own popsicles at home where you are in charge of the ingredients. However, for us it’s been a total discovery! It is fun and easy to do together with your child.
There are lots of shapes you can buy on the market these days. We went to Bed Bath & Beyond and chose a form that’s not too big, has a good grip for toddler hands, and really cute. As a bonus, it has a little opening on top where you can put a fruit, whipped cream, etc.
Blend all ingredients below
- 1 banana
- 1 big handful of frozen mangos (we’ve got all natural bag in BJ’s)
- 1 Greek yogurt (all natural)
- fresh OJ, just to barely top the ingredients
That’s it. Now you have enough to fill up 4 little forms and a small shake left over for mommy for a job well done! Frozen, it taste like sorbet!
