It really doesn’t matter how old you are, who can resist an ice cold treat during the summer?  Problem is there is soooo much added sugar in ice cream that our kids insulin levels fly up and down.

It is so simple.  Like ridiculously simple.

I have a habit of freezing fruit right before I have to throw it out.  I just cut it up and get it into some freezer bags for times like these.  I think I literally have 15 bags of sliced up bananas in there right now!

This make take a few minutes, so just be patient as the frozen fruit transforms into a scrumptious summer treat!

So next time your kids are screaming for something cold, as long as you have some frozen fruit in the freezer there is no reason you can’t surprise them all with this delicious sorbet!
