With summer in full swing, longer days, and warmer temperatures, eating dessert for breakfast seems apropos. And when there’s no added sugar or dairy you can indulge the little people and let them think they are being totally naughty, without the mom guilt. Recently my little one has been displaying signs of allergies to dairy, and so I am trying to make alternative to her favorite foods. Ice cream is something that we enjoy (probably a bit too much). But I didn’t want her to feel like she was sacrificing anything. I wanted it to taste like a real treat.
It’s a super simple recipe that I prepared in 10 minutes. And it’s a great recipe to include your little people on. I was inspired by the Facebook page Sistah in the Raw. (However i’mm not exactly sure where I saw a similar recipe.)
