Trick your kids into eating healthier!

So have you ever had difficulty getting your kids to eat things that are healthy?  I have 4 children, each of them unique.  Some would eat some things and others would eat, or at least be willing to try, other things.  My oldest two were big on veggie platters.  Ten years later, my younger two, are big on the ‘try something new’ which is usually fruit!  Then I deal with the “you always make us eat healthy” and the “dad doesn’t do…”

Of course, nutritionist mom comes back with; “You still need at least 5 servings of fruit and veggies a day.”

On days like today, when school gets out and they are wanting a snack mom makes ICE-CREAM!  What kid doesn’t like ice-cream?!

So easy, healthy, and tasty! (I am not a fan of ice cream, but I did try this and LIKED it!)

The kids loved it, well, really they said “it’s okay” when I asked how they liked it but it was gone pretty quick!

Mission accomplished, mom’s strawberry ice-cream = 2 fruit servings AND coconut milk has less sugar, less carbs, and more calcium that regular milk!

Raw Strawberry Ice-Cream Recipe

2 Ingredients!  It doesn’t get any easier than that!

Equal parts frozen strawberries and coconut milk!

Put in blender, blend!

(May need to add a little more coconut milk as it thickens in blender)

Variations:

Fruit

ANY frozen fruit can be used, such as, cherries, blueberries, mango, papaya, pineapple.  You can freeze chunks of ripe banana for 24 hours and use with 1T cocoa powder for chocolate ice cream or add 1T almond or nut butter!  Yum!

Milk

You can also use almond milk.
