Nice cream for breakfast? Yes please!

Nice Cream for Breakast? Yes, please!

When I have a little extra time in the morning (like on the weekends), I love whipping up nice cream for the kids for breakfast. They seriously get so excited that they’re having ice cream for breakfast – and it’s basically all fruit!

I like to fill their bowls with whatever flavor nice cream I make and then put out a bunch of different toppings that they can choose from – like an ice cream bar! That way they have the choice of what goes in and of course I make the choices as healthy as I can.

I obviously chose alllll the toppings for my bowl because I love them all! The combo of textures and flavors in every bite is pure perfection. It’s the best treat on a hot summer day!

For this nice cream, I blended frozen fruit with a little bit of almond milk in a food processor. You can use a high speed blender, but I find that the food processor seems to work best for me to get the ice cream consistency I want. You need to be patient and stop every once in a while to scrape down the edges. Also, watch carefully that you don’t blend it for too long so it doesn’t get too runny and warm. If you’re having a hard time blending it or it’s getting stuck a lot, just add a little more almond milk.

I used homemade almond milk for this nice cream. I think that it makes it extra creamy but you can definitely make it with store bought, plain almond milk too. If you’re interested in making your own almond milk, I highly recommend the Bigger Better Nut Milk Bag from Ellie’s Best. You can use code “OVERORDERINGIN” for 10% off on their site.
