Yes! You can have ice cream for breakfast!

Yes, it’s true! You can have ice cream for breakfast! It’s a perfect option when the weather starts heating up and there’s the option of making it more refreshing like a ‘sorbet’ or creamy like an ‘ice cream’…

Use water or coconut water for the ‘sorbet’ texture and use a ‘milk’ base (almond, soy etc) for the ice cream texture.

Mix any of the combinations of ingredients below in your blender (I use a Vitamix) and only add a little bit of the liquid ingredient.

Top with some fresh fruit or muesli (my favourite!) for some extra crunch and enjoy.

So here are some of my favourite combinations!

STRAWBERRY SORBET (pictured above!)

  • 1 x frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • dash of coconut water
  • 1/2 cup x muesli on top to serve

This one blends up into a beautiful pink colour full of antioxidants. If you have any cherries lying around, these are also great to add into the mix!

SUPERFOOD SORBET 

  • 1 x frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 x teaspoon spirulina
  • dash of coconut water
  • 1/2 cup muesli sprinkled on top to serve

This one blends into a bright green colour! Spirulina is an ingredient easily found in many health food stores and helps brain function, liver disorders and even assists in allergy treatment.

PROTEIN POWDER ICE CREAM

  • 1 x frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 x scoop of protein powder
  • dash of soy milk
  • 4 x strawberries halved on top to serve

If you love your protein powder, this is a fun way to consume it! I personally love PranaOn protein powders as they only contain organic ingredients and are made in Australia.

MANGO ICE CREAM

  • 1 x cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup ice
  • dash of soy milk
  • handful of fresh blueberries on top to serve

I use bananas for all my sorbets and ice creams but if you’re not a banana fan then mango does the job too! Nothing better than frozen mango and it’s great for your digestion as they’re rich in prebiotic fibre and minerals.
