Healthy Homemade Popsicles for Toddlers

It must be the spring sunshine we’ve had this weekend, because this afternoon Gracen and I set out to make some healthy, wholesome, toddler-friendly popsicles.  We decided upon two kinds; banana almond yogurt pops (these ones are much like G’s favourite banana almond oatmeal smoothie) and raspberry blueberry yogurt pops.  IMG 8973
We got started with a few simple ingredients…  Whole organic plain yogurt, frozen bananas, frozen blueberries and raspberries, some honey, toasted ground flax seeds, and all-natural almond butter.

IMG 8974First up – the banana almond yogurt pops!  Gracen popped a couple of frozen bananas into the blender to get us started.

IMG 8981Then she added some all-natural almond butter.

IMG 8993We decided to add in a little sprinkling roasted ground flax seed at the last minute too…

IMG 8999Then we blended it all up.

IMG 9007And poured it into our little containers (I’ve been searching for mini popsicle molds for a while now, but haven’t had any luck…  This is my interim solution).

IMG 9001Miss G was pretty stoked at the fact that there was a little left over.  Mmmmmm!

 

With one batch done, we got started on the raspberry blueberry yogurt pops…

IMG 9012No need for a blender with these ones…  Grae started us off by putting some yogurt into our bowl.IMG 9017
Next, we added some no-sugar-added frozen blueberries and raspberries.IMG 9022
Just a little squeeze of honey for sweetness…IMG 9028
And a touch of cinnamon.

IMG 9030And then Gracen mixed it all up.

IMG 9051And we poured it into the remaining containers.IMG 9043
There wasn’t any left over this time around, but Gracen was just as excited to lick the spoon.
IMG 9055We put on the tops, popped in some wooden popsicle sticks, and put them in the freezer.  Tomorrow we shall see how they taste!

  1. What kind of containers are you using and where did you find then? I’ve also been looking for mini popcicle molds with no luck. Such an adorable idea and I can’t wait to try these recipes. Thanks!

    1. These were actually just little dollar store containers that I found and slit holes in the lids… Definitely not the best quality, but they did in a pinch. 🙂

  2. Lol i didnt even read the recipe. Just looked at ur daughters cutie pictures! Cant wait to try this with my daughter though!!!
