I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that summer vacation starts in less then 3 weeks!

I mean, there is snow in our forecast this week.. and I’m supposed to be planning all of those endless summer days?!?

On the flip side – my girls are already there. School is winding down and they are jazzed for pool time, flip flops and endless popsicles!

I don’t have 3 months of summer plans nailed down but you bet I have my freezer stocked with popsicles!

Ha! Priorities!

These naturally sweetened popsicles are my girl’s new favorite frozen treat!

I am also in love with them because they are filled with only wholesome ingredients – oranges, pineapple, carrots and yogurt.

Yes, you read that right – there are hidden veggies in these popsicles! #momwin

Popsicle Molds for baby And Toddler:

  • Zoku Mini Mold – hands down my favorite mold for baby and toddler sized popsicles. Each popsicle is less than an ounce in size and there are 9 popsicles in the mold. I have found that because of their small size these popsicles get devoured before they have time to melt all over the place —> not as messy!
  • Nuby Garden Fresh Fruitsicle Frozen Pop Traythis is a great tray for popsicles for baby – they are small enough for baby to enough a healthy treat but not so big they melt all over the place. I also like the ring stick for easy handling.
  • FoodWorks Silicone Ice Pop Maker Molds/Popsicle Molds – these are great for toddlers and kids because they are a little bigger. The best part about these molds is that they are transportable and be popped into a cooler for a park or pool picnic.

COOKING WITH KIDS

You can easily have your kids help you make these fun popsicles.

TODDLERS

  • Toddlers can help measure and pour the ingredients into the blender.
  • They can help put the lid on the blender and push start. Note: make sure to talk about not touching the blender blade while making something in the blender, as it can be sharp. 
  • Once blended, toddlers can help pour the popsicle mixture into the popsicle molds. You may want to pour the popsicle mixture into a smaller measuring cup with pour lip to make it easier on them. 
  • With help, they can place the popsicle molds into the freezer. My kids always spill the tray at this point, so just give them an extra hand.

KIDS

  • You can pretty much let older kids make this recipe by themselves. 
  • They can pick out and measure all of the ingredients. Note: make sure to talk about not touching the blender blade while making something in the blender, as it can be sharp. 
  • Kids can pour the popsicle mixture into the molds and place the popsicles into the freezer.
