Child's Summer Snack


With temperatures starting to climb up towards the 80's, our children will be looking for snacks that are cooling to the mouth and body.

Why not let your child make their own snack with three simple ingredients?

Frozen Blueberries, milk, and the child's ability to mix.

I started to make this concoction back when I was in grade school.

A wonderfully healthy snack with fruit (Containing vitamins C, K, potassium, manganese, and fiber) and

 Milk ( Containing vitamins A & B12, calcium, riboflavin, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and protein.)

How to make this?

  • Pour some frozen blueberries (Make sure to wash blueberries off and keep in freezer.) in a bowl. Whatever amount you would want your child to eat.

Clean, frozen blueberries.

  • Now pour fresh milk over the top of these blueberries. Pour enough milk to almost cover the blueberries.

  • Now ask your child to stir up the blueberries. They can watch as the frozen blueberries change the milk to ice milk and the frozen blueberries are thawed!  Stirring may take as long as 1-2 minutes. Have them be patient and keep stirring. If after a bit of time, the milk is not changing, you may need to add a few more frozen blueberries.

  • A cool dessert or snack for any age! Great snack for summer days or summer nights. Great snack even to eat in front of the tv.
  • Note-If you find the blueberries are a bit sour, try adding a small amount of honey or a small amount of sugar into the milk before freezing the milk. Adding too much sweetner creates for a less healthy snack/dessert.
