This was my 4 year old son's hand hours (and several hand washings!) after I gave in and bought him a Sponge Bob popsicle in the park.
I know the picture isn't perfectly clear, but if you look closely, you can see that the various red dye #s godknowswhat have streaked his hand.
A little scary, no?
What's a mom to do? I remembered having a read a post on Weelicious about mango popsicles and tinkered around with the proportions a bit.
The next day, I made these:
3 very ripe mangoes, chopped
1 cup of whole milk or yogurt
an optional dash of cinnamon or chili powder (the latter for adventurous adults!)
Process mango and milk or yogurt in a food processor or blender and freeze in ice pop molds.
Makes about 12 pops–depending upon your molds.
I actually chose to make fewer pops and reserved about a cup of puree before freezing for my 16 month old's breakfast 🙂
