Valentine’s Day is a day of indulging in sweet snacks, love notes, and extra cuddles with your kids. They’ll no doubt be excited to hand out their Valentines to friends and come home with lots of treats and candy.
Since you know they’ll have their fair share of sugary treats, here’s an easy Valentine snack you can make in minutes that’s still filled with wholesome ingredients. My kids love Horizon’s Super Squeeze pouches so I knew these frozen heart shaped treats made from organic milk and real fruit would be a hit. The blend of added milk makes it creamy and adds a good source of protein (5 grams per pouch) so it’s not all just fruit. Add a dash of red or pink heart sprinkles on top to make it a festive Valentine’s Day treat. Wouldn’t these be fun to hand out at your Valentines’ Day party instead of ice cream or candy?
Fruit Squeezer Frozen Heart Valentine Treats – Ingredients:
– Horizon Super Squeeze blend of fruit and milk (we used the Strawberry Bash flavor but you can use any flavor you’d like)
– Heart silicone mold
– Red and heart shaped sprinkles and/or pink and red sparkling sugar
This is a snack you can make in a couple of minutes. It’s that simple! All you need do do is fill the bottom of the molds with a scattering of sprinkles. Then empty the fruit pouches and fill to the top of the heart molds. We used 2 pouches to make 12 hearts.
Pop them in the freezer for about 4 hours or until firm. They come out easily from the silicone mold.
My kids loved seeing the pretty sprinkles on top!
They’re just the right bite-sized treat. Make sure to eat them fast as they start melting! You can also opt to add a popsicle stick to make them easier to eat. Right before they start freezing, just pop a stick on top. We didn’t do that this time, but will definitely try that next time as they would be more fun to eat!
My kids loved the refreshing taste and unique way to eat one of their favorite fruit squeezer flavors. The sprinkles add just the right touch of fun without making this Valentine snack an overly sugary or heavy treat. You can also add a extra mix of yogurt with the squeezer if you want a more creamy treat.
What are your favorite Valentine’s Day treats for kids?
