It’s summer, and with it comes a craving for popsicles and Fudgesicles…well, at least for me. Little Miss loves treats, too, so our freezer currently has two boxes of Dreyer’s fruit popsicles: One regular and one no-sugar-added. Yes, we have popsicle molds, but usually I just use Kool-Aid with a little less water in it than usual, and if I’m going to give her that, I might as well just hand her the sugar bowl and a spoon. While I’m not against giving kids sugar, I don’t think they need much of it (neither do I, for that matter), and the less they have the better.
A friend of mine recently shared a delicious popsicle recipe that’s easy to personalize for flavour preferences (especially important when dealing with small, picky children), and a photo of her son, Diego, enjoying a healthy, delicious summer treat.
Fruit ‘N Yogurt Popsicles
Fresh or frozen fruit (your choice!) Ideas: Bananas, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, apricots, strawberries, mangoes, pears, blackberries, nectarines, guavas, etc.
Scoop a few spoonfuls of yogurt into a blender. Add frozen and/or fresh fruit. Blend until fruit is in small pieces. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for several hours, until set. Enjoy!
If you’re interested in BPA-free popsicle molds, use Amazon.com to search for some. I found these that I thought would be just the right size for little mouths, and easy to hold in little hands.
