It’s Summer! Healthy Popsicle Recipes for Babies & Toddlers

During summer, there’s nothing like an ice cold treat. And while we are huge fans of the paleta man, sometimes you need an option that’s a little healthier on kiddos stomachs – and sugar levels. Which is why we’re loving the below recipe from Baby Foodie

Strawberry Cherry Beet Popsicles


  • strawberries – fresh or frozen
  • cherries – fresh or frozen
  • cooked beet – home-cooked or store-bought
  • vanilla extract
  • honey (omit for babies under 1 year)
  • water

How To Make: 

  • Place all ingredients into a blender according to directions.
  • Blend for at least 1-2 minutes or until completely smooth, adding in more water if needed. Since we are only making a small amount of mixture for these popsicles, some bigger blenders might have a hard time processing these recipes. If that is the case with your blender, you can either keep scraping down the sides for 10-15 seconds or make a double batch.
  • Pour the mixture into the popsicle molds.
  • Place the popsicle molds into the freezer and freeze for at least 5 hours or preferably overnight.
  • Un-mold and serve!

These popsicles not only taste great but (gasp) even manage to sneak in some veggies! Staying cool and snacking with the kids? Now that’s a win. Check out the linked article for 6 more tasty and healthy popsicle recipes, and let us know what your favorite summer treat is in the comments!
