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.
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.
First up – the banana almond yogurt pops! Gracen popped a couple of frozen bananas into the blender to get us started.
Then she added some all-natural almond butter.
And a generous amount of whole organic plain yogurt.
We decided to add in a little sprinkling roasted ground flax seed at the last minute too…
Then we blended it all up.
And 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).
Miss 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…
No need for a blender with these ones… Grae started us off by putting some yogurt into our bowl.
Next, we added some no-sugar-added frozen blueberries and raspberries.
Just a little squeeze of honey for sweetness…
And a touch of cinnamon.
And then Gracen mixed it all up.
And we poured it into the remaining containers.
There wasn’t any left over this time around, but Gracen was just as excited to lick the spoon.
We put on the tops, popped in some wooden popsicle sticks, and put them in the freezer. Tomorrow we shall see how they taste!
