Frozen yoghurt

Ingredients for Frozen Yoghurt

My girls love ice cream, and I love giving them things they love. I don’t love filling them with preservatives, sugar or colourants though, so when I spotted this recipe in one of our plethora of Dora the Explorer cook books for children, I thought it would be a great one for Ameli, my 3 year old to get involved in.

Welcome to the Festival of Food Carnival. This month, we celebrate foods with kid-appeal!  Hosted by Diary of a First Child and Hybrid Rasta Mama, you’re welcome to join us next time, or if you have a previously published recipe you’d like to share, add it to the linky below.

Smashing berries

I do find the raspberries a bit tart for my liking, but my oldest just loves the pink ice cream, as she calls it. She loves being part of making it too, so that’s helpful. My girls love ice cream, but I don’t really love the additives and chemicals that go into most commercial ice creams. Ice cream also has a lot of sugar and fat and while I don’t mind fat too much, the sugar isn’t necessary. We have a huge collection of Dora the Explorer cooking magazines that have built up over the last year or so, and we found this recipe in one of the early issues. It is really simple, and very tasty.

Mixing frozen Yoghurt

Of course it’s adaptable – I’d love to try it with a refreshing mix of summer berries, or even adding some mint leaves, but here’s the original for now.

My girls love ice cream, and I love that this is a healthy alternative to commercial ice creams, and my children don't know the difference. I find the raspberry frozen yoghurt quite tart, and prefer strawberries or mixed berries.
