StawberryPopsicles_TitleSummer is here and the weather is getting warmer — much warmer. This means when the boys are outside playing they are often wanting a cold treat to cool down with. The problem is that I don’t like giving them ice pops or other treats that are just full of sugar, so I decided to go to the kitchen and whip up something that is just as tasty but much healthier.

I recently had the opportunity to try out several varieties of Gerber baby food, including Lil’ Bits baby cereal and yogurt blends. I knew that both of these would be perfect for making my sons some homemade popsicles.

You probably know Gerber as a baby food company whole food is fortified with a blend of vitamins, iron, zinc, and calcium. The thing is, these foods aren’t just baby food, but also serve as a great recipe substitute.

Making Homemade Strawberries and Yogurt Popsicles

IngredientsonTableAll you will need to make these popsicles are:

  • popsicle molds
  • 1 package of fresh strawberries, chopped
  • 4 cups of Gerber yogurt blends in strawberry and banana
  • Lil’ Bits baby cereal

StawberriesinBowlBeforehand, you will want to cut the tops off a package of fresh strawberries and chop them into small pieces. Set aside.

YogurtandCerealIn a mixing bowl, empty the four yogurt cups as well as add about a half a cup of the Lil’ Bits cereal. Then blend well.

After the yogurt and cereal have been mixed you will want to add in the bowl of strawberries. Mix all of the ingredients together until it is well blended.

PopsiclesInMoldYou will want to pour the ingredients into the popsicle mold. If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can actually reuse the cups the yogurt came in and popsicle sticks. Put in the freezer for 6 hours or until frozen solid.

To remove the popsicles from the mold, run hot water over the outside of the mold and gently squeeze. Now you have the perfect frozen treat for a hot summer day. Plus you, as a mom, will feel better about what your kids are eating.

Popsicles are the only delicious foods that you can make that you can make with Gerber baby food. Some other delicious options are pancake muffins, chocolate oatmeal waffles, and even strawberry cheesecake bites.
