- 100 g frozen fruit (for example, raspberries or strawberries)
- 100 g vanilla baby yoghurt
- 2 mini ice cream cones (optional)
- 2 fresh raspberries (or strawberries), finely diced
- Dice the fruit if the pieces are large.
- Place the frozen fruit and yoghurt into a small hand-held food processor, and process until smooth. You may need to stop and push the contents down to help mix properly. (The end result should be smooth, thick and creamy.)
- Serve in a bowl or in mini ice cream cones, and top with chopped fresh raspberries (or strawberries), if available.
Baby Friendly – Suitable for 8-10 months
Health tip: This has more vitamins, fibre and lower GI than store-bought frozen yoghurt. It also has beneficial bacteria for healthy digestion if using a high probiotic yoghurt. It is good for your baby’s food development to introduce different textures and temperatures (as long as food is never served too hot).
Cook’s tip: To make a thicker yoghurt, place mixture back into the freezer for 15 minutes after mixing. You can buy frozen raspberries or strawberries in the freezer section of major supermarkets or you can simply freeze your own. You can use 100 g of any frozen fruit to make different flavours and colours. Try making a traffic light using strawberries, mangoes and kiwi fruits if other kids come around to play. Or other family members may want some soft serve ice creams as well!
