Create your own Winnie the Pooh popsicles
Blending together fresh fruit with yogurt and honey (to taste for desired sweetness) brings together the base for these familiar animated faces. Each character requires a specific blend of ingredients.
Pooh requires mango, banana, and yogurt. The banana-yogurt mixture also creates a base for other characters.
Adding strawberries gives Piglet his pigment.
An added orange creates the base for Tigger.
Finally, either blueberries or blackberries are needed for Eeyore.
Four hours of freezer time set up the popsicle mold character canvases. Don’t forget to add the popsicle stick. While the mixtures solidify, crafting creature details is an option. Colored candy melts make ears while dark chocolate can provide features like eyes, whiskers and mouths. Once drawn or crafted, these delicious details will need at least thirty minutes to become solid enough to use.
Candy melts can also add depth for noses and bellies on Tigger and Eeyore.
Once the homemade popsicle treats are completely frozen, a bit of warm water on the exterior of the mold helps to release the treats. Additional liquified candy melt makes a perfect glue for each frozen treat.
Finally, after an additional ten minutes of freeze time, these must-make munchies are ready for tasting!
