Mango Grape Popsicles
Prep time: 10 minutes • Cook time: 0 minutes
Yields: 4 Servings
When you’ve got kids and hot weather at the same time, you’re looking for foods that can help everyone cool down.
Here’s a simple, kid-friendly popsicle idea from our friend Stacie, the talented mom at OneHungryMama.com. It starts with healthy organic produce like mango and green grapes, and it doesn’t finish with tons of added sugar. That’s a real refresher on a hot day!
This recipe makes about 4 small popsicles, depending on your equipment, and it can be shared with kids 6+ months (see Stacie’s notes below.)
Combine all ingredients in a blender and whizz until smooth. Pour the purée into a popsicle mold or paper cups, insert the sticks (if needed) and freeze until set, about 2 to 3 hours (for small pops) or according to manufacturer’s directions.
*Notes: To make this a purée that you can feed to baby or use in other ways, reduce liquid by half and, depending on who you’re serving, consider substituting water, breast milk and/or formula for the juice, which has higher sugar content. If the purée is still too thick, add more liquid by the tablespoon until you get your desired consistency.
If you want to share these popsicles with babies, you can also use water in place of all or some of the juice to reduce the sugar. Wee ones won’t know the difference (in a good way)!
