I’m making Toddler Teething Frozen Fruit Cups, which I finally broke down and made at home for our teething toddlers after spending far too much money buying all-natural fruit freezer pops at the store. The inspiration for this recipe is two-fold. Yogurt tubes would be the perfect technique to make freezer pops at home.
But my kids are too young to really eat the pops directly from the tube. So, we crush their pops up in a bowl anyway. Then I saw this pin on Pinterest about freezing muffin tins full of soup. The poster plunks a couple of muffin cups into a mug or bowl, reheats and eats. It’s the perfect way to create individual toddler-size servings, too! So, my first experiment with muffin-sized freezer servings are these delicious frozen fruit slushes.
Toddler Teething Frozen Fruit Cups
4 ⅛ cups peaches, peeled and diced
¾ cups apples, peeled and diced
2 cups pineapple chunks, canned
2 cups cranberry juice
Freeze in 1/4 cup portions in a silicone muffin pan.
Be sure to make extra servings for Mommy and Daddy. These are fantastic. And, it’s a great way to use up fruit that’s on its last leg. I used last week’s peaches from my CSA box, an apple and a leftover can of pineapple. Delicious.
