How To Make Delicious Home Made Ice Cream

This is part of our cooking with kids series. Why should we give these a go?! These are a great alternative to shop bought ice lollies as they have less fat, sugar and are cheaper! No added sugar recipe as well due to the fruit content. At Nutrition4kids we try and make food and snack ideas that are suitable for the whole family so everyone can enjoy them.  This is one example!

You can switch this up with different fruit combinations. Try strawberry & banana, mango, pineapple and papaya or mixed berries! You can also use this as a refreshing drink!

Food Allergens: None.

Why not have a go and cook with your kids?

We are passionate about getting families in the kitchen with everyone getting involved when they can! Cooking with kids should be fun and enjoyable. Make it a pressure free zone! This also helps your child’s confidence with cooking & become more accepting of foods too! They may even try the separate ingredients in the process!

Special thanks to our baking star Sarah who made this for her family and was delighted they were an instant hit! Younger children can help wash and prep the fruit and place the foods into the blender and moulds. Sarah did all aspects herself with her mum on standby if she needed her!

If you do tag us on social media @nutrition4kidsni and let us know how you get on! We love seeing families making our foods. Follow us on Instagram or Facebook for more ideas, reels, and recipes.
