A few weeks ago I gave an idea on how to make applesauce bites and use those pouches of baby food that you have in your pantry for a tasty treat that didn’t involve a messy spoon. You can read that post on How to make applesauce toddler bites here and How to make Fruit Leather for Toddlers here.
Now they were such a hit with Phoenyx that I wanted to make larger more Popsicle type frozen treats and use up the rest of the pouches in my cabinet, so here is what I did.
I hope it serves as some inspiration for your cabinet!
All you need is a silicon pan. Any shape will probably do and I own a heart one. Here are some Silicone Pans On Amazon .
I added my squeezable pouches in (I layered two flavors here):
Put the pan into the freezer till they were solid ( this took a few hours, but will ultimately depend on how much food you layer) and then I popped them out. They come out super easy!
Now another way to do this would be to add little Popsicle stick handles in them or even use a thin apple slice (or carrot, celery, etc) as a handle so your child can pick it up without getting their fingers cold.
These frozen treats are a great alternative to grocery bought ice cream and you can control the fruit or vegis and it tastes just as good! And if you have a pantry full of left over baby food, it helps clear that up as well.
