In Dessert, fruit on July 26, 2011 at 3:33 pm

The secret to getting veg into kids is soup, and the secret to getting fruit is the freezer. This is an alternative to the frozen banana.

Half a melon (or a box of the cubed kind)

1 cup yogurt (whole, low fat or non, they all work)

1/2 bag frozen raspberries (cheaper than fresh)

a couple of dashes of honey.

a blender

ice pop molds

First puree raspberry with a little honey, set aside.

Puree down the melon with the yogurt, (you can add some milk to get the machine going) add a little honey if its not sweet enough

Starting with the melon mixture layer the ice pops with melon and raspberry, Take a skewer and run up and down the sides for the swirl look.

They should be frozen in around 5 hours.
