New favorite Nuby goodies? I think SO! Recently we had the chance to try out the Nuby Garden Fresh Fruitsicle Popsicle Mold and we're in love. I have always been a big fan of making my own baby food… I like know what they're eating and exactly what ingredients are going into their little bodies. Snacks and desserts are no exception to that, and with the new Nuby molds - Its really easy! Each one holds 1oz of liquid for the popsicle. The handles are chunky and perfect for little hands to hold on to - and the shape makes a little drip tray of sorts keeping melty messes off their hands.
Rozz and I came up with our own awesome recipe for our popsicles using all organic/gluten free ingredients.
1 organic banana
1/2 cup of gluten free oatmeal
1/4 tablespoons of organic milk
1/2 cup organic strawberry yogurt…
Blended it all together and YUM! I love when looking at it you can see the little bits of oatmeal inside… such a healthy and nutritious cool treat that I would have no problem handing over and calling it breakfast or dessert. (You will have leftovers as the trays hold 4 ounces total. The tray & parts are freezer safe (obviously) but you can also just throw it in the dishwasher when you're done. My ONLY suggestion is I wish that the tips of the outer white piece had some silicone bottoms like their Pop Up Freezer Pots (see below) so they were just a little easier to get out. We broke the first popsicle pulling it out but all the rest came out pretty easily. I think that would be an easy solution that that minor issue.
What is our favorite part? Eating them of course!! *lick* Want your own? Order them at BedBathandBeyond.com for $7.99 or on Amazon.
Now, lets rewind here for a second… I told you you would have leftovers of our awesome popsicle recipe. But I didn't tell you what to do with them. First, grab your Nuby Garden Fresh Pop Up Freezer Pots… the have an awesome silicone bottom, lids that close nice and tightly, and a tray to keep them all nice and organized.
You then poor all your leftover yumminess in these pots… put them in the freezer… and pull them out to thaw as needed for the baby :) Yes, of course we have a toddler… and a baby… and bigger kids… we have a lot of kids. So naturally leftovers get eaten right up over here. Seriously though - I LOVE these pots… Sometimes getting baby food out is such a pain… but with these you just push up from the bottom and they pop right out. Easy Peasy! Or if you want just take one out and let it thaw in the fridge then serve right from these little cups.
