All moms love quick healthy snacks. Here’s a favourite of ours. Enjoy!
Once we found out that our one son was allergic to milk ice-cream had to go 🙁 At first this was very hard – especially on special occasions! One day a friend introduced us to banana ice-cream. This simply involves freezing ripe – but not over ripe bananas. You peel them, swish them in lemon juice and freeze them. This is a job the kids love to do. Besides being fun it helps develop their preschool hand-eye coordination, sorting and sequencing skills. Then when you want ice cream simply place the frozen bananas in a blender – we find our handheld Braun mixer works the best. You just need to eat it quickly as it tends to melt.
The kids love it and we’ve even used it in cones! Then again if you don’t feel like blending the bananas the kids also really enjoy munching on a frozen banana on a hot day! (For a treat you can dip the ends in melted cooking chocolate and refreeze) Yum, yum!
For those trying to go even healthier you can make your own coconut oil chocolate then it’s truly healthy and you can just keep eating!

When our first son was born and was given normal squeeze juice at about the age of 2years his eyes dilated, he looked straight through me and literally began jumping off the furniture.
I’ve always enjoyed a good meal and shrugged off health fanatics. “Life’s short, enjoy what you can.” I simply thought that as I don’t smoke and drink and I do some exercise – sometimes – there was seriously not need to worry. Yet seeing this behaviour made me begin to think….
This set us on an amazing journey of discovery. Discovery about food, preservatives, what we eat, how we prepare it and how this all influences who we are and how we behave. Healthy Habits is aimed at sharing some of this journey with you.
