How was your Father’s Day yesterday? My favorite part was cooking with my 23-months daughter, M. And spoiling my husband, of course. 😉
We made waffles, and M did all of the pouring the ingredients from the measuring cups to the bowl, but mixing was her favorite part. She was so proud as she said, “Mom! Imma mixing it!” haha.
Last week, M also helped me make homemade popsicles. Homemade popsicles are the way to go because they are healthier than most store-bought popsicles. And it’s easy to make with your kiddos (it doesn’t take long because there are only two ingredients). So it’s a win-win! So I’m sharing this recipe with you! 🙂 (I’m literally eating popsicle as I write this, it’s too good!)

Ingredients and Supplies

- 1/4 Nutella (little less if you don’t like things too sweet)
- 3 ripe bananas
- Cut up the bananas. If your child is going to cut it, make sure to use kid-safe knives like these Laminas 5-Piece Stainless Steel Cheese Knives Set tools with Microfiber Cleaning Cloth in a Housewarming Gift Box, Cheese Knife Hold, Cut, Shave, Slice, Spread, Serve All Types Of Cheeses
- Place the bananas in the blender.
- Scoop 1/4 cup of Nutella in the blender- I did the scooping Nutella in the measuring cup and then I gave it to my child to pour the nutella in the blender
- Blend it! Until it’s completely mixed in. *Tip: if you like it smoother- add a little bit of milk
- Pour it into the popsicle mold– I did this part on my own. M is a bit too young for this part.
- Freeze- for at least 4 hours or overnight
**Important Tip: How to get the popsicles out of the mold- rest the frozen mold in a bowl of warm water for 30 seconds. This will help with pulling the popsicle out of the mold.Enjoy!
