Freddie is currently rather fond of yoghurt with frozen berries. I discovered he preferred them frozen when he ate them on the way back from our freezer under the house and wouldn’t wait for the berries to defrost. He gobbles down frozen berries and yoghurt calling it ‘icey yoghurt’ and thinks it is a quite delicious treat that tastes like ice-cream! The real bonus is that not only is this dessert sugar free but the berries are packed full of vitamin C which helps enhance iron absorption.
Now the weather is getting warmer ice blocks or ice pops are refreshingly tempting. The only problem is that they are packed with sugar and often full of artificial colours and flavours.
Fortunately, making homemade healthy ones is simple with Munch Ice Pops.[shopify embed_type=”product” shop=”munch-nz.myshopify.com” product_handle=”munch-ice-pops” show=”all”]
Munch Ice Pops are reusable, easy to use, BPA Free, silicone popsicle molds and Mums and Dads love the no mess design:
“I love using these icepop moulds at our place because they can make healthy iceblocks that the kids can squeeze up. This means no iceblock sticks or dripping everywhere.
“Simply fill, pop on the lid and leave them to freeze. They fit any way in the freezer so you are not worried about them tipping over and spilling like traditional moulds. When ready to eat, run under warm water and push up from the bottom. It’s child’s play”
