My lovely little Daisy is allergic to dairy. 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?

Daisy enjoying 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!

If you enjoyed this post I’d love it if you could pin it on Pinterest!

These dairy free fruit lollies are tasty, fun, simple to make and great for CMPA babies

      Hopefully it will be back soon properly, it has been lovely hasn’t it.

    They look great! My brother was allergic to dairy but grew out of it around the age of 5. Hopefully Daisy will too!

    I am thinking that these lollies would be a good budget friendly option for me for the summer!! (Slimming world)

      Ooh that’s great – glad I could give you some inspiration!

      Thanks for letting me know about your brother, I hope Daisy will be the same x

    I know this is intended for babies and toddlers but I think it would be a great little after-school snack for my kids (4 & 6). The size of the Nuby ice lolly maker is just perfect.

    • katykicker June 7, 2017 / 9:40 am

      Yeah they are a great size aren’t they! Thanks for stopping by x

    This such a great healthy alternative to ice lollies, something which is very important to me as there’s so much sugar in ready made snacks even those aimed at babies & children! I love those moulds as well – presumably they’re silicone & BPA free? Xx

    • katykicker June 7, 2017 / 3:52 pm

      They are made from silicone and they are BPA free.

      Lots of baby products are made with sugars and have a PH reading that can actually damage teeth so I try and make my own where possible.

    Such a lovely idea. I’m going to share this with my SIL because her son is dairy free & she’s really struggling with weaning!

    • katykicker June 7, 2017 / 3:50 pm

      It is hard when you start out but you really do get used to it x

    I keep promising mine that I’ll get some ice lolly moulds, I’d need bigger than these though but they do look fab!

    • katykicker June 8, 2017 / 3:14 pm

      They are so lovely and the perfect size for little hands. My daughter already loves to have one after dinner. I can give her a ‘treat’ without stuffing her full of sugar and naughtiness right before bed.
