my son is a big time ice cream fan.. he wasn’t one until a few months back. he hated it last year, then around christmas a tiny elf came to our room one night and added two sweet tooth in his jaws… it took us a week to see them sprouting out. they are still tiny and can only be seen when he laughs out loud showing all those gummies. i like to believe its those tiny square ones that have inculcated the love for ice cream in him. well, every mom is a story teller and so am i 🙂
i have had ice cream all my pregnancy days and cannot blame my little one if he demands one too… ofcourse he is the obedient one out of us two who never asked for it at a silly odd hour until now. but i was not happy when a single scoop of flavored milk in pretty colors frozen to perfection landed into runny nose and sleepless coughing nights. i also hate giving him meds.
so i started thinking on what new i can do…
“all natural yogurt popsicles” :
1 bowl yogurt (preferably made at home)
1 bowl fresh strawberries and grapes
1 spoon sugar
1 bag of patience
and some sprinkles (optional- i used chocolate chips)
take a bowl of yogurt and tie it in a soft cotton cloth, hang it lose somewhere to drain out the excess water.
while the hung curd gets done, make a syrup of strawberries , grapes and sugar (only 1 spoon of sugar is enough since fresh berries n grapes are always sweet).
pour it over the hung curd and use a beater to mix it well. (i use a all in one beater)
add chocolate chips or sprinklers or anything you wish to; pour it into Popsicle cans and freeze them. an hour later pull them out and let the kid get dirty enjoying them.
you can also add in it tiny pieces of fruits or home made jelly or just crushed rice flakes- as it pleases your kid. sorry my phone had been hijacked and now its almost broken and cannot deliver good pictures , i missed out on clicking a good pic of my son enjoying his yogurt ice cream but you may check my instagram account – @awomansays and even account.
