Baby Ice Lollies

Summer has finally landed here in London, I actually spotted 29 degrees on the car thermometer the other day. A perfect opportunity therefore to make some Baby Ice Lollies (or popsicles, ice pops, whatever you prefer to call them) with the Annabel Karmel moulds that I bought the other week from Amazon.

These were ridiculously easy to make and really healthy too. I destalked four large strawberries and chopped up a couple of slices of watermelon, removing the pips, and popped it all in the blender until smooth. Many of the recipes that I found online suggested adding sugar but I didn't think that was suitable for a baby under 1 and the mixture tasted sweet enough as it was. I then poured the blended strawberries and watermelon in to the ice lolly moulds and left them to freeze over night.

You could even simplify this even more and just add some Ella's Kitchen smoothies to the moulds or even mix in some yogurt to make them more creamy.


This was little E's first ice lolly so she was a little confused as to why her food was so cold but she got the hang of it in the end. These moulds are really easy for babies to hold and make just the right amount for them to eat before they melt everywhere. 
Ice Lollies are also great if your baby is teething, as mine is right now. The ice helps numb their gums and eases pain.
