Tropical Ice Cream: Easy, healthy, and delicious!

homemade tropical ice creamRemember when  Bill Cosby said you can eat chocolate cake for breakfast because it had eggs and milk?  Well, if that is the standard, this Ice Cream is perfect for breakfast!  Two ingredients: Milk and fruit!

Erica, My 10 year old thinks she invented this, and insisted I post it.  She and her friend have made it no less than 10 times in the past week, and have been anxious to make in the neighborhood taste how good it is!  She even brought my bag of frozen fruit to the neighbors to prepare it, because we were out of milk on Tuesday.

So, here is what they do:

Tropical Ice Cream Recipe

  • 4 cups frozen fruit blend (Mango, Pineapple, Kiwi, Papaya and Strawberries)
  • 1 1/2- 2 cups low fat milk
sugar free homemade ice cream

Put the fruit and milk into a blender, and blend until fruit is smooth.  They start with 1 cup of milk, and slowly add one more until the blender starts to work.  You know how sometimes, if there isn’t enough liquid, the blender just won’t go.  Depending on how good your blender is, you may have to add more milk until it begins to move.  Don’t add too much though, because then you’ve turned your ice cream into a smoothie!  Not that there is anything wrong with that.

5 reasons I love this Healthy Ice Cream:

  • No Sugar Added! As you know, we’ve been on a no-sugar kick!  So, this Ice cream fits perfectly with our eating style.
  • The New MyPlate Icon includes a side of dairy.  This would be a perfect compliment to follow any healthy, balanced meal!

  • It’s easy to make!  I mean heck, my 10 year old is making it!
  • It’s super delicious!  10 out of 10 kids agreed.
  • 3/4 cup of this frozen fruit blend has 130% of your daily requirement for Vitamin C!

I wonder if this would work with alternative “milk”… my daughter has dairy allergies and it would be so nice to let her have “ice cream” too! The added benefit would be that I could make my own coconut milk and it would not contain soy (like most dairy-free frozen snacks)!

) I do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind.
Is it only me or do some of the responses come across like they are left by brain dead individuals?
😛 And, if you are writing on additional sites, I’d like to keep up with you.

Could you make a list all of your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

Hello there! This article could not be written any

He always kept preaching about this. I’ll send this
article to him. Pretty sure he’s going to have a good read.
Thank you for sharing!

Please don’t be afraid of using 2% or even full fat milk! Fat is actually good for us and helps with brain development in kids. Heck, you could even use cream and make it SUPER yummy. 🙂
Also, bananas add fabulous natural sweetness and work as a great thickener.
Thanks for the fabulous post!
