Healthy Homemade Ice-cream Recipe

My preschoolers love sweet treats like ice-cream, but one of them has some serious sugar limitations.  I developed this ice-cream recipe so everyone can participate in the sweet fun...and everyone loves it!!

Letting your preschoolers help make the ice-cream gives you the opportunity to talk about things like solids, liquids, counting, colors, fractions, and more!  Cooking is excellent math time!


* 2 frozen bananas
* 8 frozen strawberries
* 1-1/4 cup almond milk
* (optional) small dash of cinnamon and/or nutmeg

Easy How To:

1.  Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.  I use the "ice crush" setting.

2.  If it is too thick to blend, add more milk.

3.  Serve and enjoy immediately!!


* Peel the bananas, cut them in half, and freeze the 4 halves in advance.  Then you can just pop them in the blender!
* Riper bananas are sweeter!
* This is best fresh--it can get way too frozen (or hard) when you freeze it!

This is a fabulous treat on a hot, summer day!  The best part is that it can double as a dessert or just a healthy snack!!

I may share at any of these parties!
