Simple Strawberry Ice Cream (A Recipe)
Have you seen my video for how to serve yogurt? THIS is another way to use those ideas!
You can adapt it to include a little more fruits or vegetables, OR you can sweeten it if you want. I’ve got some ideas after the “recipe”.
- 8+ strawberries (that makes the amount in the picture, about 3 big scoops)
- approximately 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut milk (or whole milk, or almond milk, or water)
- Cut the greens off the strawberries. Place them into a freezer bag or freezer-safe container. Freeze the berries for at least 4 hours but preferably overnight.
- Stick the frozen berries and milk into a food processor. Add a little of the milk at a time (the amount will vary based on how many berries you use and how large they are). Pulse the food processor a little at a time until you reach the desired smoothness! You can place the mix back into the freezer to firm up before scooping or just serve it as is.
- Use frozen berries from the freezer section of your grocery store!
- Add date syrup, half a banana, a drizzle of agave nectar, a little unsweetened applesauce, or some natural 100% fruit juice for sweetness. Remember, just because you don’t find it sweet enough, your baby is probably fine with it. No need to sweeten it to your taste!
- Rhubarb is a vegetable and pairs well with strawberry. Just chop it into small pieces and freeze it with the strawberry.
- Do NOT add honey unless your baby is over a year old.
- Adding refined sugar is not recommended under a year old, and I would limit it over a year as well. There are plenty of natural forms of sugar that make a fine substitute!
