Mango and apple ice treats recipe
Great for teething babies, these mango and apple ice treats are very soothing on sore gums. Get them slurping on one of these delish ice blocks for a thoroughly enjoyable mid-afternoon snack!
- 1 medium mango, peeled
- 1 medium apple, peeled, cored and diced
You will also need:
- 1 x ice cube tray
- 1 x baby fruit net (available from supermarket baby section)
Cut the flesh off the mango and mash with a fork in a small bowl until smooth.
Half fill all the blocks in your ice tray with the mango puree. Freeze for 2 hours or until frozen solid.
Place apples in a saucepan and just cover with water. Bring to the boil over a medium-high heat and then simmer on medium for 5 minutes or until cooked through.
Puree apples in a blender with 1/4 cup only of the cooking water. Remove ice cube tray of mango from freezer, and fill each block with apple puree. Freeze for 2 hours again or until solid.
Remove blocks from tray and place one in a fruit net. Bang a little with the back of a spoon to soften slightly and let baby at it!
