Are you trying to lose baby weight? Is ice cream your weakness? If you’ve answered YES then this post is for you!

For a lot of women (ok, most women) ice-cream is hard to resist. However, knowing what’s in it (and what’s not) might just help you reduce your intake somewhat.

And good news is that we have healthy ice cream on the 28 Day Challenges

Healthy Mummy Recipes For Healthier Ice Creams

Fruit Sorbet
One ingredient fruit sorbet
  1. Try your hand at making your own icy poles – these Homemade Berry Popsicles ones are a big hit with adults and kids alike.
  2. Sorbets are a way to enjoy ice cream – minus the cream! Our One Ingredient Fruit Sorbet is refreshing as well as healthier than traditional sugary sorbets.
  3. You could also try using yoghurt instead of cream, by making our Strawberry Coconut Frozen Delight or Raspberry Frozen Yoghurt Sorbet.
  4. For an amazingly guilt-free treat, simply freeze some bananas and then whiz them up in the blender – recipe and details here for making this Banana Ice-Cream.

The main thing to remember is that you can enjoy everything in moderation. If you find that you can in fact stick to a small scoop of your favourite ice cream as a treat (and that does not mean every night!) you can still have it as part of your healthy eating plan, although we do think our homemade versions are way better.
