Homemade 4th of July Popsicles

4th of July Popsicles

Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer so far! I absolutely cannot believe that the 4th of July is next weekend already! Time is really speeding by lately that’s for sure. Even so, I am super excited for the 4th!

We decided to make some homemade popsicles because…why not?! Red, white and blue and extremely simple! No joke, I really just threw these together! So perfect if you want to make something homemade but quick and easy.

4th of July Firecracker Popsicles!

All I did to make these was slice up strawberries into slices and small bites and add them to a popsicle mold along with some blueberries. You can add however much fresh fruit that you want to be in your popsicles. Don’t forget to add your popsicle sticks or whatever you want to use for a handle! Then I added sprite to fill everything in between!

Wasn’t really sure if these would turn out but they were way good! My son is obsessed with blueberries so these were a hit! Try them out! Super easy and fun for the kiddos 😛

Enjoy!

Blueberry-Raspberry Baby Puree

Blueberry-Raspberry Baby Food

Here’s how to make this super simple fresh berry fruit puree for your baby!

 

What you’ll need:

-1 container of fresh blueberries

-1 container of fresh raspberries

 

Make sure to rinse both berries well first. Cook all berries together in boiling water for about 10 minutes. Rinse with cool water and add them to the blender. The berries have enough of their own juice that you shouldn’t need to add any extra liquid. If it is too thick just add a bit of water. This made about 5 servings of fruit for me. Of course, that’s by using the itty bitty yet super duper expensive containers from the grocery store. If you got them in larger bulk while they are in season somewhere like the farmer’s market, then you could probably make a lot more for cheaper!

That’s it! See what I mean? Very simple! My 9 month old absolutely loved this combination mixed in with his cereal in the mornings. Hope your baby enjoys this as well!
