Ice Lolly for Baby
















We all enjoy an ice lolly on a hot day. It seems a shame that baby would miss out on such a treat, but when you have a baby you are constantly on the alert for sugar, salt and other hidden nasties. I make Cooper's food, so I can be sure that whatever he eats is pure and good for him. One of the few exceptions is baby yoghurt, which is just sweetened with fruit puree and boy does he love it. So, when my mother-in-law suggested making ice lollies out of baby yoghurt, I thought it was a fabulous idea. It was so simple too. No need for lolly moulds to make these lollies. All you do is slit the lid of the yoghurt pot with a lollypop stick or do what Jean did and use a baby spoon, even easier, then just pop them in the freezer until frozen.

As you will see from the photos, Cooper loved his yoghurt ice lolly.

  5. ::sigh::
    Look at those eyelashes. I ask you, does a boy really need lashes like that??

    You know, I'll bet Mom could make frozen yogurt about the same way for her...

  6. Thanks Joan :)

    Yeah, the little yoghurt pots made perfect ice lollies. Just the right size and delicious too :)

    I am sure he won't appreciate his eyelashes as much as we do Tanita and you try and stop me having one of these lollies!

  14. gorgeous photos - wish Sylvia would eat yoghurt - though a friend of mine was saying that the baby yoghurts here are so sweet - but I understand trying to avoid sugar, salt and all those additives - maybe I will try this for me - with an adult spoon - and make sylvia jealous
