Super Tasty Homemade Ice Cream Recipe Ideas


Ice cream is great summer dessert! You can buy it anywhere and eat it as a quick dessert.

The problem is that bought ice cream is not very healthy dessert. It contains lots of preservatives and artificial colors. Most ice creams have the same base and they get the color and the taste by adding different colors and additives in it.

Those additives and preservatives can be harmful for your health, but they can be even more harmful for children’s health. Assuming that the children actually eat more ice cream than adults, it is worth making a healthy homemade ice cream, which will actually be a healthy dessert.

Unless you buy plan vanilla or chocolate ice cream, there is a great chance that the fruit ice cream bought in the supermarket contains no fruits at all!

So, why not try making ice cream at home? You can use all kinds of ingredients that are healthy for children, such as fruits, milk, cheese, yoghurt and even nuts.

Here are three homemade ice cream recipe ideas you kids will just love. Improvise a little bit while making ice cream and your kids can enjoy their special ice creams sticks at home. Add chocolate or berry sauces and the fun will continue!

      I also enjoy eating ice cream and the more I read how ice creams from supermarkets are full of all kinds of bad ingredients, the more I like making my own ice cream at home.

      Barrybaldwin, although ice cream can be made without ice cream makers, because not everyone can afford it, they definitely end up much better if you use one of them.

      If you try some of those recipe, let me know how they turned out. :o)
