My lovely little Daisy is allergic to dairy, among other things, as she has FPIES. While this is something that we hope she will grow out of at the moment she hasn’t. I don’t want her to miss out on some of the nicer things in life. Like ice cream. I decided to knock together some dairy free fruit lollies.
These are super simple and I cheated a little! There is nothing wrong with that if it means my daughter gets something new to try. I’m not much of a Pinterest parent, even if I do try to be sometimes.
Ingredients for dairy free fruit lollies
Dairy free yoghurt (I used Koko)
Your fruit of choice (I went with a sad looking banana I found in the fridge). I’m always trying to cut back on food waste where possible.
The yogurt that I used was strawberry so I felt that banana would be a nice compliment for this. Also, Daisy is a little fussy with banana. I’m trying to keep it on the menu frequently. In the hope she’ll love it what with them being cheap and all!
Method for dairy free fruit lollies
I placed a little yoghurt in the moulds. Then I placed the banana in. I added a little more yoghurt around the sides. After this I got the lolly tops, the parts with the stick, and I pushed them into the banana.
As you can see I had left some space. This meant that when the stick pushed the banana that yoghurt didn’t spill out the side.
You can *buy them on Amazon for under £6! These are really shallow, perfect for weaning babies. If you want to make a perfect portion of frozen smoothie, fruit lollies or frozen yoghurt, then this is ideal!
Daisy is 14 months old and she just about managed to finish her dairy free fruit lollies each time.
What did Daisy think of her dairy free fruit lollies?
She loved her dairy free fruit lollies! As you can see.
It was wonderful to be able to give Daisy a treat. I felt really happy that she was eating something healthy and not missing out on the joy of an ice lolly on a hot day. I’ve already got another batch in the freezer!
