If you are worried about your little one using the wooden stick, just freeze your purees in the Dixie cups without the stick and cut the popsicle into bite-size cubes once it is frozen. Mesh feeders work great for this too!
The possibilities for flavor combinations are endless! Here are a couple recipes to get you started.
Coconut Pineapple Popsicle
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/4 cup dried, unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup fresh pineapple
Combine all ingredients in a blender; process until smooth and creamy. Divide mixture into four (4-ounce) Popsicle molds. Freeze for 4-6 hours and serve.
Strawberry Banana Yogurt-sicles
1 cup plain non-fat yogurt
3/4 cup milk (any milk of your choice...breast, soy, rice)
Combine all ingredients in the blender until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds. Freeze for 4-6 hours. Drink the left over as a smoothie! Yummy!
*If you have trouble removing your popsicle from the molds, just run mold under warm water for 5-10 seconds and the popsicle will slide out easily.
