St Patrick's Day Popsicle - Soothes Teething gums
Freeze the smoothie mix in ice lolly moulds for an instant gum soothing treat for babies, they make a healthy treat for children too.
For 4 lolly moulds:
1 large ripe banana
1/2 cup milk (for babies, use breast milk or formula and for 12 months + use prefered milk of choice)
1 big handful washed baby spinach leaves (approx 15 leaves)
optional: spring of mint, leaves only
Blend in nutribullet or similar until smooth. Pour into ice lolly moulds and freeze for minimum 4 hours or until set.
Tip: brush a little warm water to melt the surface of the popsicle before giving to your baby as the contrast in temperatures can cause the lolly to stick to skin. Baby brain freeze! The cold temperature may take some getting used to, but more often than not, they'll keep wanting more as it gives a nice numbing relief for sore gums!
