How to Make these Popsicles

  • Place all ingredients into a blender according to directions.
  • Blend for at least 1-2 minutes or until completely smooth, adding in more water if needed. Since we are only making a small amount of mixture for these popsicles, some bigger blenders might have a hard time processing these recipes. If that is the case with your blender, you can either keep scraping down the sides and 10-15 seconds or make a double batch.
  • Pour the mixture into the popsicle molds.
  • Place the popsicle molds into the freezer and freeze for at least 5 hours or preferably overnight.
  • Un-mold and serve!

Instructions 

CARROT ORANGE GINGER POPSICLE

  • 1. Place all ingredients into a blender and puree for 1-2 minutes on high speed or until completely smooth. This mixture will have some pulp in it from the oranges, which you can strain in a fine-mesh strainer if you prefer your pops completely smooth. My pops were not strained. Pour mixture into popsicle molds, place in freezer and freeze for at least 5 hours.

BANANA SWEET POTATO CHOCOLATE FUDGSICLE

  • 1. Place dates in a small bowl. Pour hot water over the dates until completely submerged. Let soak for 5 minutes.
  • Place all ingredients into a blender and puree for 1-2 minutes on high speed or until completely smooth. This mixture can be a little thick, add in more water if needed. Pour mixture into popsicle molds, place in freezer and freeze for at least 5 hours.

ALL OTHER POPSICLES

  • 1. Place all ingredients into a blender and puree for 1-2 minutes on high speed or until completely smooth. Pour mixture into popsicle molds, place in freezer and freeze for at least 5 hours.

Notes

Age: roughly 9 months and older. For babies under a year, omit the honey.
Yield: 9 mini popsicles
Storage: Store in freezer for up to 2 months
Note on Honey: For babies one year and under, omit the honey. I find that these popsciles are sweet enough for baby, but you can also add in a touch of maple syrup if you prefer. 
Note on Sweeteners: I woud say these popsicles are lightly sweetened. If you prefer a sweeter popsicle, you can add more sweetener of your choise. You can also omit the sweetener altogether. 
Note on Yield: This recipe will make roughly 3/4 – 1 cup of popsicle mixture which is enough to fill the Zoku Mini Mold. If you are not using this mold, then you will have to adjust the recipe accordingly. If there was a little extra popsicle mixture left over, I like to thin it out with a little water and give it to my girls as a juice:)
