Toddler Treats: Fruit, Yogurt, Stevia, and Omega-3 Pops

Our fridge had an excess of yogurt and strawberries in it this weekend, and obviously those things don't last forever. I'm sure most toddlers love yogurt and strawberries straight up, but Aias is the pickiest eater ever. What he does love is popsicles of any kind, so I decided to work this to my advantage. Here is the recipe I created for some wacky delicious and somewhat healthy popsicles.

Tools:
- Blender
- Popsicle Stick Molds

Ingredients:
- 1 cup of blueberries, fresh or frozen
- 1 cup of strawberries, fresh or frozen
- 1 cup of your favorite yogurt
- 1/16 tablespoon of stevia to sweeten
- 1 tablespoon of NutraSea Omega 3 Oil


Put all of your ingredients in the blender and blend.  This picture below shoes what it looks like blended, I think it's a bit of a creepy picture though; it looks like the inside of someone's mouth. Sorry about that, haha. 

Next, carefully pour your mix into your popsicle stick molds.  If there's extra, just pour it into a container and put it into the fridge.  It will last until you eat the other popsicle sticks, as long as you eat them quickly.
 
Place into the freezer. Ours took about 4 hours to freeze completely.  Remove and enjoy!  Aias really likes them.  I'd keep a close eye on your toddler while they eat them, they are messy and if they bite off too big a chunk I imagine it's a choking hazard.
