Pearls and Coins- a great frozen treat.  

Choking Hazard Response on Frozen Blueberries:  Is this a choking hazard?  First, I would like to say all foods have the ability to be a choking hazard.  After reading comments on other forums where this was shared, I had to add my thoughts.  When I made these they were intended for my 3 year old, husband and self (not my 15 month old son). I would be more concerned of in infant handling the skewer than choking on a blueberry. When my 3 year old ate the blueberries- they never came off the skewer whole or in chunks and she has a full set of teeth. She even had to chew them down. If I was going to make this for my 15 month old, I would string the berries on a cooking string and freeze a mini necklace with 3 berries (never tie around neck).

Again, it is all about the parent’s comfort level.

 

Ingredients:

  • Ripe bananas coined.
  • Blueberries
  • Your favorite yogurt (I used whole fat vanilla)
  • Sprinkles (the definition of sprinkles in our home = flaxseed meal)
  • Skewers

 

Directions:

  • Place banana and berries on skewers.
  • Cover in yogurt.
  • Put sprinkles on banana.
  • Freeze for 1 – 2 hours.
  • Eat immediately after they are removed from freezer.
  • If you are serving to a child, you may want to cut the sharp end of the skewer off for safety purposes.
