  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Using a rubber spatula, scoop the mixture out of the blender into ice pop molds or small paper cups. If using paper cups, cover each cup with tin foil and press a baby spoon or self-feeding utensil through the foil into the mixture.
  • Freeze until solid, about 6 hours or overnight. If using paper cups, peel off the paper cup and remove foil once frozen.
  • Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.



TIP: There are a few ice pop molds on the market just for babies, featuring easy-to-grip handles and small serving sizes. Nuby and Zoku both offer a variety of options (available on Amazon).
Want to add an extra nutritional kick? Try adding a dash of chia seeds or flax seeds before freezing. It gives a texture babies might love. Looking for more baby recipes? Sign up for our newsletter and never miss an update!

Summer days or teething days, these ice pops are always a hit!

How long can I store these teething ice pops in the freezer?
These Banana-Avocado Teething Ice Pops can be stored in the freezer for up to two weeks. However, for optimal freshness and flavor, it’s best to serve them within a week.

What if my baby doesn’t take to the ice pops right away?
That’s okay! Every baby has their unique preferences. You can try offering it at different times or when they’re particularly fussy due to teething. Sometimes, the cold sensation is new and might take a bit for them to get accustomed to.

Can I add any sweeteners to enhance the taste?
These ice pops get natural sweetness from ripe bananas. It’s advisable to avoid adding any artificial sweeteners for babies. If you’d like, you can introduce a touch of natural honey if your baby is over 12 months old.

Are there any potential allergens in this recipe?
The primary ingredients – banana and avocado – are generally safe and low on the allergen list. However, always monitor your baby during the first serving to check for any reactions.

How should I store any leftover mixture that didn’t fit into my molds?
If you have extra mixture, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. You can use it to make additional ice pops or even serve it as a mash for a delicious and nutritious baby treat.

  3. Beverages: Serve alongside a cool sippy cup of water to help hydrate your little one.

Cooking Tips

From my years in the kitchen, here are some pro tips to ensure these ice pops are a hit:

  1. Choosing the Right Fruit: Ripe bananas and avocados not only provide the perfect texture but also pack the right amount of natural sweetness. Ensure they’re soft to touch but not overripe.
  2. Blending to Perfection: To get a silky smooth texture, ensure you blend the mixture thoroughly. This avoids any chunky bits that your baby might not prefer.
  3. Avoid Overfilling: When pouring the mixture into molds, leave a little space at the top. The mixture will expand as it freezes.
  4. Common Mistake to Avoid: Don’t rush the freezing process. While it might be tempting to give your baby the treat sooner, not letting it freeze completely might make it harder for your baby to hold and enjoy.
  5. Taste Before Freezing: While these are for your baby, it’s always a good idea to taste the mixture before freezing. If it’s pleasant for you, it’s likely your baby will enjoy it too. Remember, no added sugars or sweeteners for babies under 12 months!
