Making Fruit Ice Cream For Kids
When the temperature rises, ice cream is the best way to cool off in summer. It is also a favorite among children. However, it is clear that excess ice is not good for children’s health. With these recipes, you can make the most delicious sugar-free ice cream in no time at all. All you need is a blender!
Fruit Ice Cream in an Instant
Fruit ice cream has many benefits. Fruit is healthy and filling, and fruit ice cream doesn’t contain any weird additives. Besides, fruits have a delicious sweetness that is indistinguishable from ice cream in the supermarket freezer.
The most important thing you need to make fruit ice cream is a blender. Also, bananas are a great base to make ice cream a little creamier and richer, so always bring it home! It’s best to put them in the fridge or freezer with the peels on. That way, your ice cream will stay cold.
Pink Ice Cream
This ice cream is always a big hit with the kids. The base is bananas, and depending on the quantity of ice cream you want, you can throw one to three frozen ones into the blender, but the least should always be two bananas.
Add blueberries or raspberries to the blender. The real flavor is in the addition of frozen cherries and wild blueberries (which you can get in a cardboard box in any supermarket freezer). These add color and flavor to the ice cream. Be careful with clean clothes.
It may be a little too thick at first. Then, top the ice in the blender with the appropriate milk. This combination is perfect for both almond milk and oats milk!
Chocolate Ice Cream
Many children love it, and it tastes so good! This can also be made without much fat or sugar. Again, choose banana as the base or avocado. Take 3 bananas or avocados to give have a nice consistency. Add 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 3 tablespoons of maple syrup, and a splash of almond, oat, or coconut milk in a blender to make it liquidy.
Want a green power smoothie without the chocolate? Then choose a green version with added avocado or spirulina powder. This will make it healthy instantly!
Tropical Ice Cream
On a scorching day, tropical ice cream is always a hit. Mix passion fruit in to give it a wonderfully fresh touch. You can add a little lime juice to make the ice cream a little more tart if you like. Want your ice cream to be creamier or more liquidy? Then add some organic coconut milk! Start again with a banana base and add frozen or chilled mango.
