Also, using and reusing ice lolly moulds when you make your own helps reduce waste! If you're interested, I've found a great BPA, PVC and Phthalate Free option at VUP Baby.
My mom sent along a recipe for Blueberry Banana Yogurt Popsicles. (I think they’re from Martha Stewart but can't be sure.) I’ve simplified the original recipe and have excluded any sugar for my toddler.
- 3 to 4 ripe bananas
- 1 1/2 cups yogurt
- Juice of 1/2 lemon or orange
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
In the bowl of a food processor, puree bananas until smooth. Add yogurt, and lemon juice; pulse to combine. Remove half of the yogurt mixture; set aside.
Add blueberries to processor, and pulse until just combined. Layer blueberry and reserved yogurt mixtures into ten 1/3 cup ice-pop molds. Using a wooden skewer, swirl the two flavors together. Insert ice-pop sticks. Transfer to freezer until frozen, about 8 hours
And don't forget to dip the molds quickly in hot water to make it a heck of a lot easier to unmold.
