Mom & Tot Creamsicle Smoothies

I’ve been all about the OXO Tot line ever since having my son a little over 4 years ago. They’ve been so wonderful for all of the different stages that he’s gone through, and the designs are incredibly thoughtful.

I remember when we first tried the Divided Plate with Removable Ring back when he was starting to eat solid foods. Not only was it great to have the dividers, but the curved ring helps aid in scooping up items, which makes things a lot less frustrating for little ones (which, as all parents know, is a major bonus!).

I also really appreciated that the base of it was non-skid and that there was a little sauce container in the middle. It’s great for things like ketchup, maple syrup, yogurt, or even small items like blueberries.

I’ve been using my set of 2 Ounce Baby Blocks since my son was an infant. They’re freezer/dishwasher/microwave safe and airtight. And they come in a little tray if you want to keep them organized in the refrigerator or freezer.

I like that they make portioning things like homemade baby food and snacks easy. I used to make weekly batches of puréed fruits and veggies, and these were the perfect way to store them. Great for those grab-and-go moments when you need to make sure you have a snack for your baby, too.

I still use them to tote snacks around for things like playdates, picnics and trips to the zoo. They come in very handy very often.

I’m really excited about the Grape Cutter, too – it quickly and easily quarters things like grapes, small tomatoes and pitted olives. I wish I had this one back when my son was younger, but I still have lots of reasons to use it. This is perfect for when your kids are little so you don’t need to worry about choking hazards, and also great for cutting these items for things like fruit salads, pasta salads, etc.

And now, onto the smoothies. Back when I made this Dark Chocolate Pinwheel with Creamsicle Yogurt Dip, I was so happy with how Creamsicle-y the dip turned out that I knew it would make a crazy delicious smoothie!

It only takes 4 ingredients (3 if you use vanilla yogurt!) plus ice and is a really healthy snack option. The only added sugar is 1 tablespoon of honey per serving.

I use the zest of the orange along with the chopped fruit in this recipe for extra orange flavor. It was a really wonderful snack that both of us loved!

As soon as my son saw his new big kid cup (AKA the Twist Top Water Bottle), he.was.stoked.

He loves that he can make the straw pop in and out, and I love that it closes and is leakproof. He’s pretty fond of the little carrying loop, too.

I stored a bit of my smoothie in a few of the baby blocks and popped them in the freezer. This way it’ll be even easier for me to make him a special treat another day – I’ll just pop ’em out directly into the blender and we’ll be good to go!
