Making Popsicles...

That picture illustrates some basic problems when you've got a task *almost* set up for an over-zealous 2.5 year old (today!):

1) The cuisinart container, though perfect for pureeing in, is not so good for pouring.
2) Baz's pouring coordination is right on par with a 2.5 year old: messy.
3) You can never have too many kitchen towels. You can go through enough to justify doing a load of them in the space of twenty minutes, though.

So I cleaned that up and we started over:

You don't have an immersion blender? What's are you waiting for?

2.5 year olds are almost all motion blur, even in the best lighting conditions. Also, it took a lot of persuading for him to use his fingers. And then he needed to wash all the juice off his hands. He's the most fastidious 2.5 year old I've ever met.

These kind are awesome because of the straw.

"Recipe": watermelon puree, frozen blueberries, raspberries, and peaches. No measuring. 

We'll see how they turn out!

PS - I have a feeling these will be a welcome post-cycling-commute snack for a certain Daddy 'round these parts...


  1. Oh, we LOVE making popsicles! One of our favorite recipes is simply strawberries, milk, and honey. Oh, so yummy!

    And I have to second you on the immersion blender. Regular blenders are for saps ;) I love my immersion blender :)

  2. That sounds like a yummy recipe! We're trying that one next! Thanks :-)
