So after those water lollies, I started to play around see what else I can add in there. The frozen version of freshly squeezed juice was rejected. It tastes like other store bought flavored lollies. Saving grace? Cocoa power! Thank goodness she likes most things chocolatey, and there's this little for me to fiddle with.
My first version of chocolate lollies was so successful that she usually would eat 2 at a time.
- 1T cocoa power
- 1C milk
- 2T of honey
Blueberries was another hit, as long as I liquidize it really well and the berries are chopped into micro bits. I've tried grapes as well, but then I have to pass the liquid through a sieve, or else madam complains that she can taste the grapes and the skin. Oh my.
The cocoa power kind of covers all the other fruity taste. You can throw in any fruit you've got on hand. If you don't have a fussy eater like mine, the sky is the limit. Make your own healthy lollies or ice bites at home. It's so easy and a much better version than store bought.
