Instant Raspberry Ice Cream

The other day, out of nowhere, Mr 3 asked for Ice Cream. I haven’t made him Ice-Cream in months and it’s getting colder and colder here in Australia, so I’m not sure what prompted his request.

Not having any Ice Cream in the freezer, I thought I’d experiment and whip him up some instant ice cream. After all, 3 year Olds want everything NOW. I knew that explaining to him that I would need to pop the bowl in the freezer for at least a day before making him churned ice cream wouldn’t be met with a welcome “Sure Mummy, I’ll wait a day or so for Ice Cream!”

Now, I don’t usually give in to his every request, I thought it would be fun to experiment with him by my side. I had raspberries in the freezer and some plain greek yoghurt in the fridge so I thought that the right quantity of each mixed together in my Mini Food Processor could result in a creamy cold treat. (where to find a mini food processor)

Thankfully it did! It just needed a little honey to sweeten the it up. My boys are used to greek yoghurt so can tolerate the sourness if sweetened with just a little honey. You may need to add extras if your little ones have a sweeter tooth. Or, feel free to use your favorite yoghurt instead.

Double or triple the recipe and use a larger food processor if you have more than 2 children to feed. Just keep the ratio the same, add too much yoghurt and you’ll end up with a smoothie!

Instant Raspberry Ice Cream
1 Cup Frozen Raspberries
1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yoghurt
Drizzle of Honey to taste (where to find honey)

1. In a Mini Food Processor, place the raspberries and yoghurt.
2. Turn the machine on and mix until you achieve the desired creamy texture. Taste a little, add honey to taste and mix again.
3. Serve IMMEDIATELY!

Makes 2 children’s portions or one adult portion.

Next time your kids ask for ice cream, maybe whip them up some nutritious Instant Raspberry Ice Cream for a truly nutritious treat!

We love raspberry ice cream in our house, what’s your favorite Ice Cream flavor?

  4. This is a great idea for making fast ice cream!! Thanks for sharing at Showcase Your Talent Thursday. I hope to see you there next week!

  5. I’ve done this with many berries….except I’m WAY naughtier than you. Gulp. …I add heavy whipping cream instead of yogurt ;-)
    Shame on me!
    I will have to try it your way!

  6. Sounds delicious. Adding frozen banana would also add to the creaminess. Have you seen the “Yonana” machine? It turns bananas and other fruit into soft serve “ice-cream.” I don’t have one, but it’s definitely on my wish list!

    Thanks for linking up to Food Adventure Friday!

  7. Love this idea!
