I made these yummy popsicles for our twins last summer when San Diego decided to have a heat wave which lasted most of the summer. Teething babies and heat does not make for a good combo. Wanting something healthy that would help ease their gums while entertaining them, the light bulb went off and these yummy (not to mention healthy) popsicles were born.
- 1 Melon, (about 2 cups)
- 1/4 – 1/2 Water
Cube the melon, add it to your Nutri bullet, baby bullet, blender whatever you use. Add the water and blend away until smooth.
Pour the mixture into your popsicle molds and freeze. I found these molds on Amazon for less than $15.
Keep in mind you can make these popsicles with any fruit and even add veggies.
These toddler (and mom) approved “pancakes” are a nice and delicious change to the carb laden not so healthy actual pancakes. I first tried these with our toddlers when they were around 10mo. Although they didn’t exactly scarf them down they did enjoy a few bites. I found them rather tasty and satisfying myself. There are two simple ingredients and a dash of cinnamon to make these tasty banana-cakes.
- 1 whole egg
- 1-2 banana(s), ripe
Add egg to a blender and banana, pulse for a minute or two.
Add a sprinkle of cinnamon. In a skillet over medium heat, add a little butter and pour a small amount of your banana batter, about silver dollar size. Flip when golden brown.
Serve these with a drizzle of syrup or topped with delicious fruits.
