The Singapore heat has been killing all of us recently – and leaving everyone in the Soh-Teo household lethargic. We got sick of languishing at home over the swelteringly hot weekend last week, and I decided to whip up some popsicles for all of us to beat the heat!

We had these super adorable Zoku popiscle molds I’d bought for Sophie-doll a while back but never got around to using, and they were perfectly sized for her chubby toddler fingers. 🙂

Here’s what we came up with!

Neko Blueberry Soymilk Popsicles

Ingredients (makes 2 pops)

15 blueberries

160 ml soy milk ( we use Fortune brand non-GMO soy milk)

Method:

Pour 100 ml soymilk and all the blueberries into your blender and blend. Add remaining soymilk and stir until consistent. Pour into molds and leave in freezer for at least seven hours or overnight, and that’s it!

She loved it!

The next day, I dug around my fridge and found that we had some fresh red dragonfruit which is really a superfruit! Here are the health benefits:

Red Dragonfruit is rich in vitamin C, B1, B2 and B3, and minerals such as iron, calcium, and phosphorus. I’m always on the lookout for fruits and veggies high in iron because babies need iron in their diet and they don’t always get everything they need when they are on step 3 toddler milk (in my baby’s case). Spinach, broccoli and red meat are other good sources, too!

The dragonfruit flesh is actually quite perfect for making popsicles because when its frozen, it takes on a lovely, smooth ice-cream like consistency!

Red Dragonfruit + Vanilla Yogurt Popsicles

Ingredients (makes 2 pops)

Half red dragonfruit, peeled and cut into cubes

3 large tablespoons vanilla yogurt

Method:

Blend everything together. It might be a little frothy after so leave for 1-2 minutes after stirring so bubbles settle (if not they become air bubbles and your popsicle won’t be as dense). Pour into molds, leave overnight or at least 7 hours, done!

I posted this in several of the baby food recipes groups I’m popular in and many have asked where I got the molds from and for the recipes. I bought them on my own and they aren’t sponsored 🙂 You can buy them from zokuhome.com or else one of the Mummies have said it is available from Tangs 🙂 They do not ship to Singapore, so you’ll have to use a mail forwarding service to get them here to you. We use Vpost.

Mama Dawn over at Daprayer Blog has also posted some scrummy looking popsicle recipes!

Will be posting up more popsicle recipes soon, next up is our double layer strawberry banana popsicles and I’ll also be trying out a chocolate banana one! Happy beating the heat!

Love,

Libby and Sophie Rose
