Healthy Ice Cream??? Yes, please!!!

Hi everyone,

These past couple of days have been crazy hot on our beautiful island so I think it’s time for some home made ice cream!!!  

I will eventually give my son store bought ice cream with all the sugars and 100% not healthy but for now, I try to find recipes that taste good and are healthier for him.  Let’s face it, at this age (16 months old) he will pretty much eat anything I give him. 🙂  Don’t forget mommies, we are the ones that introduce them to new stuff so try and forget what you like as a taste and search the web for some healthier choices that are also yummy.  It takes some effort but our little ones are so worth it.

Ingredients:

  • Frozen fruit ( you can choose any kind of frozen fruit, I chose strawberries and raspberries)
  • Almond milk or coconut milk ( I used almond milk )
  • Yogurt ( any Greek yogurt will do )
  • Cute containers 🙂

final

    My kids love this too – in fact, they love just blended frozen fruit for a quick cold snack in the summer months – for instant strawberry or banana ‘icecream’. I buy fruit in bulk when it’s in season (like strawberries are right now) and wash/cut a lot of it, stick it in the freezer and so it can be blended and eaten within minutes when needed. Thanks for this Tania! My kids also love frozen peas and sweetcorn straight from the freezer in a bowl – it’s their favourite snack 🙂 Does anyone else’s kids like that?

    My son stopped eating a couple of weeks ago due to teething, so my doctor suggester smoothies. He loved it… I never tried freezing fresh fruit to be honest, but it’s a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

    You’ve got to have a powerful enough blender or food processor but it’s fantastic as a quick alternative to waiting for lollies to freeze. You can freeze your coconut/almond milk as well in ice-cube trays and pop a few of those in for a creamier result! 🙂 Let me know when you’ve tried it! I’m going to have a go at your almond milk lollies at the weekend 🙂
