Hot summer days sometimes wear down mothers’ enthusiasm for cooking and cleaning up yet another meal. Here’s a breakfast we invented last week that quickly won 4 stars from the boys! How about Breakfast Ice Cream Cones?! Super nourishing (don’t tell, these ‘good fats’ really help their brains & immune system function well), really tasty, and the kids love ‘breaking the rules!’ What’s not to love?
It DOES involve a quickie ice cream maker – Cuisinart has a couple of great versions, no salt and no mess, done in 10-20 minutes!
We keep a can of full fat coconut milk in the fridge (hence completed in 10 minutes because it’s already chilled).
1 Can Full Fat Coconut Milk (Native Forest is our favorite)
1/4 cup Elderberry syrup
1 cup or more berries of your choice (get inspired to pick your own!)
1 tsp vanilla
1-3 TB RAW honey (complete vitamins, minerals & enzymes) or real maple syrup (good minerals, better flavor)
Whip it all up with your hand blender in a stainless or glass bowl (eliminating xenoestrogen contamination), pour into the pre-chilled ice cream chamber, and turn it on until it is frozen into that great homemade ice cream texture.
Serve in Gluten-free sugar cones (why avoid wheat)
And be THE most popular parent in town! (Make enough for you too!)
