I made these for my 15-month-old baby Blu but it seems I like them much more than she does. I swear I can never quite predict what she is going to love. It also changes every day. My promise to her is I will continue to expose her to all kinds of healthy foods. I think sometimes parents assume because a child won’t eat something that they don’t like it, but their taste buds and moods are changing all the time. If we only give them chicken nuggets and mac and cheese then, of course, that’s all they will want to eat. If I expose her to new flavors and textures consistently then I believe I am expanding her palate, even if for now she throws it on the floor :(
Don’t be fooled just because Blu doesn’t always like these. I promise they are so yummy. The secret of creamy vegan ice cream is “Coconut Manna” which you will see I have used in the ingredients. Coconut Manna is basically coconut butter made from nothing but Coconuts :)
These ice creams can be stored in the freezer if you don’t eat them all. They are a great healthy dessert to have stored away for when you are craving something yummy and sweet.
Having healthy alternatives ready takes away the desire for those unhealthy treats because you have replaced them with something equally as yummy.
Also, I am curious to know is there something that you won’t eat because you decided you didn’t like it when you were a child? Is it a healthy food? If so, trying clearing that belief and giving whatever it is another go. Maybe try preparing it in a different way. Food for thought :)
Rasberry Ice Creams
How to cook Rasberry Ice Creams
- Throw all ingredients in the blender. Blend until smooth and creamy on a medium to high speed.
- Transfer the mix to silicone mold tray (the one I use can be found below - it has 24 1 inch squares). Rest the silicone mold on a large dinner plate or tray. Place in the freezer for at least 6 hours to set.
- Remove from the freezer. Option to sprinkle crushed freeze-dried raspberries on top. Place the Ice- Creams in an airtight container and store in the freezer.
I love the Lekue Silicone molds that I use when making these deserts. I also use them for making energy bars when I don’t feel like rolling into balls. They are a perfect treat size and can be found here.
