Once the mini ‘ice creams’ are firm she pops them into a container in the freezer to store, until she is ready to give them to her kids.
And her clever hack was described as ‘incredible’ by other mums who agreed it is also great for teething babies.
‘This is what we do is a really good thing actually. Especially for children who are teething,’ one mum wrote.
But others were not convinced.
‘I would be paranoid they would choke on it,’ another woman said.
Another mum recently went viral after hiding ice cream from her children.
The Australian woman called Lisa posted on Facebook, where she revealed her ‘secret hiding spot’ for the ice cream is within old empty bags of frozen peas, potatoes and sugar snap peas.

‘Kids are in bed, ice cream time, who else has a secret hiding spot?’ Lisa wrote on Facebook.
‘These [ice cream tubs] only last a week, I’ve had these for four weeks now, and the kids still haven’t found them.’
It wasn’t long before her post was met with praise from thousands of others, who labelled her idea ‘genius’ and ‘absolute gold’.
Others said they hide chocolate, everywhere from their bedside table drawers to inside tampon packets (pictured)
‘This is so brilliant, I do it with my chocolate but didn’t even think to do it with my ice cream,’ one woman wrote.
‘I could use this hack for my husband in the same way!’ another added.
Many said they are guilty of hiding certain foods from their children, with some saying they hide chocolate and lollies inside the vegetable crisper as well as other sweet foods in the top drawer of their bedside table.
