Me: Darling, would you like a snack? Some juice, a banana or some strawberries, perhaps?
My two year old, hugging my legs: NO. No, Mama no snacks... I want ice, please, OK, thank you.
Ice? He means ice cream. And it's 8.30am.
Now, I'm pretty sure I'm not the only parent to be begged for ice cream at all hours of the day.
I mean. I get it, two year olds lead a hard life. I would also like to sit and eat endless bowls of ice cream at all hours of the day and night but that’s just not how life works.
But lately I've had some 'special ice' in the freezer that's helped fill the gap of sugary-sweet ice creams in my house.
These all-natural, dairy-free, vegan-friendly purées are a healthy alternative to ice cream, with no added sugar or preservatives. They also contain an average of half a serve of fruit in one serve.
Available in three flavours including Mango, Banana and Strawberry, the 1L tubs are delicious and much healthier than the ice cream my son (and yes, me too - I have a sweet tooth) would normally go for.
