Who doesn’t love an ice cold treat on a hot day? Finding a frozen allergen-free treat can be a challenge. However, we’ve created a delicious allergen-free frozen treat for you or your little one to enjoy…frozen Neocate pops! We found a fabulous ice cream mold to use with our liquid Neocate products. The result...frozen Neocate in the shape of an ice cream cone! This can be done in just a few simple steps:
|1) Shake and open your Neocate drink box. Separate the two pieces of the ice cream mold. Flip the clear piece of the ice cream mold upside down, and pour Neocate into the clear piece.|
|2) Place the bottom piece of the ice cream mold (the cone) on top of the clear ice cream mold. Keep the ice cream mold upside down.|
3) Place ice cream mold in the freezer for at least 3 hours.
|4) Remove frozen ice cream molds from the freezer and allow frozen Neocate pops to sit for 1-2 minutes (this will make the removal of the clear piece a little easier).|
|5) Remove the clear piece of the ice cream mold and enjoy!|
There are many ice cream molds available however the one we used is from a company called Tovolo.
You can even take these pops to the next level and add some color by rolling them in colored powdered sugar! Or add a “safe food” to Neocate before freezing. For some this may be fruit juice or chopped up fruit such as strawberries or mango. This would be a great opportunity to get your little ones involved!
Frozen Neocate that thaws may discolor and/or separate therefore we recommend you enjoy your frozen pop shortly after removing from the freezer.
It is important to note that freezing Neocate products can affect some nutrient levels: The nutrition information on Neocate packaging reflects the nutrient levels when prepared as directed on the packaging. Healthcare teams may allow some Neocate servings to be frozen to help meet a Neocate goal for certain patients, but this is a case-by-case decision. Ask your healthcare team for advice before you prepare Neocate any way other than as directed on the packaging. Your healthcare team should advise you how to store and how long to keep frozen Neocate products.
Have you tried this before or done anything similar with your Neocate products? We’d love to hear from you!
