Delicious homemade healthy ice-cream is considered quite a treat in our house and best of all the kids can make it themselves.
I am always conscious that I need to get the right foods into my little ones and the Yonanas Maker really helps me do that. The recipes are pretty much just fruit – nothing else, no additives, no added sugar, no sweetener, no colourings – no nasties at all (expect for the occasional dark chocolate thrown in with some raspberries for a slightly naughty treat, that I need to write ‘just for grown ups’ on). The only downside, although not really a downside, is that it’s hard to say no when the kids ask for homemade ice-cream now as, how can I refuse them all that healthy fruit? So I have to keep my freezer packed with yummy frozen fruits all ready to go. It’s also a great way to use up all of those over ripe bananas, which now go straight in the freezer (once peeled).
My kids love the strawberry, reaspberry and bananna combo – a handful of each is enough to serve a couple of portions.
Simply throw in a mixture of your favourite fruits along with some banana, push the plunge and the jobs done….yum!
