My child was finally introduced to popsicles for the first time this summer and it was love at first bite! Mind you, it was a sugary bomb pop so of course he devoured it; what 17 month old wouldn't? I decided that I didn't want him to be so limited to when he could have one of those delicious, cold things on a stick, because its hot as hell here in GA and the guy loves being outside; so I decided to make a healthy but super easy Popsicle for him he'd be sure to love as much as those famous red, white and blue rockets.
I simply made these with ingredients I had on hand and the fruit can easily be substituted with whatever you have at the time. The little molds I found at Publix for about $3, they had silicone ones for $15 but I was totally fine with the cheap plastic ones. Plus, these have a little built in straw at the handle for them to drink up when its turned into complete liquid, five seconds later. Because again, it's 1000 degrees here in the Summer. The pack comes as 4 but as you can see, he'd already eaten one! I looked for a similar mold on amazon but didn't see one. I did however, find a 3d silicone mini penis mold, so there's that. Anyway, below is what's in them and what to do!
2 overly ripe bananas
1 large orange (segmented)
1 cup Siggis drinkable yogurt
1 tbsp honey or more if you want them extra sweet
1 large Dark chocolate bar for drizzling or dipping
Blend everything in blender (except chocolate)
Pour into molds
Freeze over night
Melt chocolate in microwave in increments of 30 seconds until smooth
Take popsicles out of molds and drizzle or dip chocolate on ends of the popsicles
Lick and enjoy!!
These can be made with a variety of fruit but I suggest strawberries and peaches right now because they're in season!!
Happy siscle making!
