Sugarless treats for kids

I have made dairy based ice creams in the past. However, our quest of eating healthy brought us to using fruit sugars instead of commercial one when it came to sweet treats for my kiddo. He does get enough sweet treats in the week so we have always wanted to make or bake something vegan and sugarless yet sweet.

Kids today have greater choices of treats and while we must not limit their experiences, we should always encourage them to eat healthy. After all, we become what we eat. Body slows down its metabolism with our sedentary lifestyles and then we start limiting our favorite food. If we choose better, we live better.

Here is our favorite ice cream recipe of this week. No sugar, no heavy cream, no whole milk yet the whole bowl finishes within minutes. I love this any day over desserts filled with granulated sugar. Vegan and gluten free and totally awesome!

Substitutions

Add nuts of your choice while serving. You can also substitute peanut butter with almond butter or nut butter of your choice like hazelnuts, cashews and macadamia.

Variations

You can add different fruits with frozen bananas , for example strawberries for an easy strawberry ice cream.

Storage

Store your chocolate peanut butter ice cream in freezer in an air tight plastic container with a cling film on top.

Top tip

Make a big batch of nut butter and store it in an air tight container up to 1 month at room temperature. Use it to make sweets of your choice later. Always cover homemade ice cream with cling film and then close the lid.

This will help avoid ice crystals and keep the texture smooth. Remember homemade ice cream does not have market based stabilizers and preservatives hence can get crystallization.

Also, whenever you see over ripe bananas, freeze them if you do not have time to bake a cake. This helps avoid food waste at our own level and also whip up sugarless treats in no time.

Food safety

Ensure you freeze the ice-cream brick immediately after taking out your scoops.
