If you're weaning over the warmer months, these cooling banana yogurt pops are a lovely way to introduce your baby to new textures and a cooling treat.

For young babies that are not onto solids yet, you can give these frozen treats to you baby inside a baby-safe feeder. It looks like a large dummy and you can place the food inside it, in a soft mesh you baby can suck and chew on. As well as being a nice way to give your child cooling food, it helps them to learn to chew food safely, rather than just biting off and trying to swallow. Plus it's a great way to give them something soothing during teething stages. 


  • 1 cup banana puree (made from 2 very ripe bananas)
  • 1 cup plain yogurt




  1. Blend and/or puree until you have a smooth liquid.
  2. Pour mixture into ice cube trays and freeze until solid. Pop out a cube or 2 and add to a baby safe feeder.

Top tip for making cooling banana yogurt pops

These don't have an upper age limit! Once you child is a little further along, you can simple stick a lolly stick in the top and give it to them as an ice pop.

What other fruits can I make these cooling pops with?
