MommyMoments: Frozen Applesauce Dots

Apple-edit4

Hey Loves,

I’m back with a yummy frozen treat for your little ones. Today we’ll be diving into a Pinterest-inspired recipe for frozen applesauce dots. Since my daughter has been teething on and off for the past couple of months I have been looking for an alternative to sugary Popsicles. While browsing one day I stumble upon a pin about frozen applesauce dots and decided to try it out.

Directions

Wash and cut apples into chunks (I used three apples)

Apple-edit1

Place apple in a saucepan and add enough water to almost cover the apples. Boil on medium to high heat until apples are completely soft.

Let apples cool. Blend/Puree apples into a smooth consistency. Stir and check for lumps. (I also add a dash on cinnamon for taste)

Apple-edit2

Place desired amount into sandwich bag and cut the tip off one corner to make it easy to squeeze out your dots. (I used about 3 ½ tablespoons for mine. The rest of the puree was used as applesauce) Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper and make your applesauce dots. Size is a personal preferences, I made mine bite size for my daughter.

Place your cookies sheet in the freeze (It took about 2 hours for my dots to freeze). Once dots are frozen store in a freeze safe bag or container.

Apple-edit3

My daughter absolutely loved this snack and it has become a staple in our household. Let me know if you have tried this or something similar to this. Be sure to tag your pictures #beesosimple so I can check out your recipes.

XoXo,
