Superfood Breast Milk Popsicles

Want an easy way to get vitamin and mineral-rich greens into your infant’s diet?
These breast milk popsicles are the perfect vehicle. We use a basic formula of greens
+ a vitamin C source (for enhanced iron absorption) + fruit to balance. The
possibilities with these popsicles are endless! Bonus - they’re especially appealing to teething babies who need a little extra love on their gums.
Remember, the first few weeks and months of introducing solids to babies can shape their eating preferences for a lifetime. Therefore, we recommend introducing bitter greens early and often! 
Servings 4 popsicles

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup water or breast milk
  • ½ cup chopped greens of choice try spinach, arugula, kale
  • ½ cup chopped fruit of choice try peach, apple, pear, berries
  • 1 teaspoon fresh squeezed lime or lemon juice

Instructions

  • 1. Puree all ingredients in a high-powered blender or food processor until smooth.
  • 2. Strain, using a fine mesh strainer. This step is optional, but provides a smoother
  • texture when using heartier greens or fruits with peels.
  • 3. Pour into popsicle molds, cover and freeze until hardened, about 3-4 hours.
  • While there are several popsicle molds on the market, we are partial to Nuby Garden
