Tropical iceblocks

These tropical iceblocks are such a fun and easy way to incorporate more fruit into your child’s diet. Making them yourself means you can also limit how much added sugar or sweetener gets used, as most store-bought iceblocks are full of refined sugars. This recipe does not contain any added sweeteners as the fruit I’ve used is sweet enough.

Makes: 6 iceblocks
