I’ve found a delicious way to get my toddler to eat her greens. Ice lollies! The healthy flavour combinations you can make are endless. The first ones we’ve tried are these pear and avocado ice lollies. They were welcomingly refreshing in this weeks heatwave.

These lollies were super easy to make and are really yummy! To make four all you need is:

  • Two large pears
  • Two ripe avocados.
  • A blender
  • Ice lolly moulds

Simply peel the pears and remove the seeds, peal the avocado & remove the stone. Then chop them up into small chunks and blitz them together in a blender. Make sure you blitz them well so you don’t get any chewy chunks of avocado.

We bought the colourful lolly moulds from Sainsbury’s for £2.50.

Evie was chief taste tester and has given them her seal of approval. Also, If you are worried about mess, these lolly holders have a drip catcher which is perfect for toddlers.


 The next ones we want to try are kale and berries! Mmmm! The perfect summer treat and a tasty way to get your toddler to eat their greens (as if they’ll say no to an ice lolly).

What do you think of our ice lollies?

    Great idea! The toddler loves ice lollies so at least these will be healthy!

    Sound delicious! Will definitely give these a try on my boys and report back! (Hopefully we will get some more sun here in Scotland – it seems to have disappeared again 🙁 )

      😀 oh you’re so lucky. Evie doesn’t eat avocados anymore unless they’re mixed with fruit. x

    Fab idea. Great for summer days too. Great for fruit and veg intake like you say. No rubbish in them either. Win, win! Thanks for sharing #KidsCorner

    These sound lovely – and whata great idea – will be trying them out as Monkey has got a bit too fussy for my liking recently! #kidscorner

      It must be a faze they go through. Evie used to brilliant at eating and now she shakes her head to most things. These went down really well though. x

    They sound delicious – just what our little ones (and us mums) need in this hot weather!

      It’s a bit of a strange combination but it’s so delicious 🙂 x

    Aw she looks like she’s enjoying that! I tend to just use squash or orange juice to make lollies, but these look like a much healthier alternative! Thanks for linking up to the #BinkyLinky

      I haven’t thought about using squash actually. That must be really refreshing too. x
