Summer is my favorite season! Plenty of fruits, warm weather, beach time and a lot of tanning. Not mentioning that kids love it too, but mostly because it is the holiday time which means no school and no homework. As a mom, summer time does not mean more free time or more quiet moments. So, it usually means yelling, laughter and your kids` friends coming over. But as any mom, you cannot but not love them. Despite all the moments when you just want to lock yourself in the pantry and pretend you are not in the house. I will leave that conversation for another time though. This time I am going to talk about the best ice cream recipe made with summer fruits. It is easy to make, it has a lot of nutrients, and it is the perfect dessert for your kids and their friends. You will need the following ingredients:
- Summer Fruits : blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackcurrants, and redcurrants. Of course you can add other types of fruits as well if you wish.
- Two tablespoons of organic honey. Make sure it is runny.
- Handful of nuts (your choice, also optional)
All you have to do is mix the fruits, nuts, honey and ice in a blender or food processor until the mixture is smooth. Place the mixture in a freezer proof container and leave it for a couple of hours or until frozen. Take it out and put it in the food processor or blender again to remove any hard ice bits. Place back in the freezer for another hour or two and then scoop it into a bowl when ready to eat. It can be garnished with more summer fruits or mint.
Summer fruits are a great add to your menu during the summer time. If you are a fan of gardening, having a few fruit bushes in your garden could save you a lot of money. It would also allow you to enjoy the sweet taste of summer fruits any time you want. Whether you prefer raspberries, strawberries, or you want to look for blackcurrant bushes for sale online, having at least one of them in your garden would be great. But, if you are a busy mom, it may be easier just to buy them from a supermarket.
No matter where you get your summer fruits from, you can always mix them into delicious and easy to make desserts. This will make you the favorite mom among your kids` friends. And not only that, but you will also ‘trick’ your kids into eating their daily serving of fruit with this delicious ice cream recipe. To be a revolution mom, you need the right ‘weapons’ in the fight against unhealthy crisps and sweets. Although your kids most likely prefer them over fruits. But not anymore, the ultimate ice cream recipe is here. It is easy, healthy and a great way to keep your kids` cravings for sugary foods and drinks in check. Be a smart mom, be a revolution mom!
