Simple & Healthy Banana Ice Cream for Kids
Do your kids eat enough fruits and vegetables? I won’t lie; I know my don’t! So I’m always looking for ways to get them eating healthier. In the past I’ve tried a sticker reward chart, a fun video about fruits and vegetables, and a color food taste test. They’ve all helped, but it’s a continual work in progress. So I was really excited to be sent a great children’s book promoting fruits and vegetables: The ABCs of Fruits and Vegetables and Beyond. And I was even more excited about the simple and healthy banana ice cream recipe inside it, but I’ll tell you more about that later.
First, let me tell you a little about the book. The ABCs of Fruits & Vegetables & Beyond is really like two books in one. The beginning is a fun alphabet book for kids where each letter represents a fruit or vegetable and includes a fun rhyming verse about it. And then the last half of the book is like a learning and activity book based on each of those fruits and vegetables with fun facts, recipes, projects, and even jokes. It’s really like a nutrition curriculum in one handy book.
Anyway, we chose to focus on B is for Banana. And we made some really yummy and healthy banana ice cream as recommended in the book. Here’s our spin on it…
Simple Strawberry Cheesecake Banana Ice Cream
Only 3 Ingredients:
- frozen bananas
- frozen strawberries
- sugar free instant cheesecake pudding mix
- Have the kids throw a couple handfuls of frozen strawberries in the blender or food processor container.
- Then have them throw in a couple handfuls of banana chunks.
- Have them scoop in a couple teaspoons on sugar free instant cheesecake pudding powder.
- Whiz in the blender or food processor until smooth and ice-cream like.
Our banana ice cream was almost more like a smoothie because our bananas weren’t quite frozen through. But it was still so yummy! And awesome to know that the kids were getting in some good nutrients.
