    Good advice. Fresh, cool watermelon is always a great summer treat. And freezing grapes, blueberries or other fruit in season is a healthy budget-friendly frozen treat.

    • Cher-El, totally agree! Yes, freezing fruit (especially when in season), is a healthy and budget-friendly frozen treat!

  2. Where an I find these nice cream recipes?

    • Paula, thank you for the question. “Nice” cream is super easy to make. Just freeze banana chunks and then put them in a food processor and process until creamy (about 2 minutes). Sometimes a little liquid may be needed such as milk or a plant-based milk. You can eat as is or add other flavors such as peanut butter, almond butter, cocoa powder, strawberries, peaches, etc…

  3. Where can i find recipes for ice cream alternatives

    • Hi Paula. See my answer above about making nice cream. Making sorbet and fruitsicles are also pretty easy. For sorbets, you can puree fruit (you can also roast them for a more caramelized flavor if desired), add a little fresh citrus juice, and then freeze in freezer-safe containers. Once frozen and ready-to eat, remove sorbet 5 to 10 minutes before you plan to eat it to allow it to soften and make it easier to scoop. Fruitsicles are a similar process, except you pour the puree mixture into popsicle molds. With both, you can do one fruit flavor a blend for more variety.
