If picky eaters in your family are missing out on important nutrients, this guide will add some fizz to those plain old apples, oranges, and bananas.

Warning
Handle dry ice with gloves, and use no more than 1 gram of dry ice if you are using a plastic bottle to avoid exploding your container.

Step 1: Cut up fruit

Cut up hard fruits such as apples, oranges, and grapes — these store carbon dioxide best.

Step 2: Add dry ice

Add a small handful of dry ice to the bottom of the pressure cooker. Remember that dry ice is extremely cold and can burn your skin — use gloves when handling.

Tip

Use a wide-mouth bottle if you don’t have a pressure cooker — just be sure to use a piece of ice about half the size of your thumb to avoid an explosion.

Step 3: Add fruit to pressure cooker

Step 4: Seal pressure cooker

Seal the pressure cooker and let it sit for about 30 minutes to an hour. The pressure-release valve of a pressure cooker will make the process safer.

Tip

If you’re using a bottle, tighten the cap and refrigerate the fruit overnight.

Step 5: Remove fruit and enjoy
