In a year where up feels down, down feels up, and all sense of normalcy has going out the window, all of us could use something to get excited about.
So…how’s ice cream for breakfast sound?!
I know what you’re thinking.
Sure, Nicole, let me amp up my family with sugar first thing in the A.M., so they’re bouncing off the walls. Ha ha ha. Good one.
But no jokes here! Our ice cream cups contain only 3-5 grams of added sugar depending on flavor—compare that to your average breakfast cereal. Does your kid love Cap’n Crunch? There are 12 grams of sugar per serving. Or Cocoa Krispies? Another 12 grams. Even “healthier” options like Kellogg’s Raisin Bran Crunch have 19 grams per serving!
Here’s some more good news. Our ice cream also contains all-natural ingredients and essential vitamins and nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C and calcium. Seriously, what’s not to love?
Every Friday in our household, we eat ice cream for breakfast, and we’ve since gotten more and more families on board with the morning scoop. We’re calling it the #icecreamforbreakfast movement. You in?
To help you get started, we’ve rounded up our favorite ice creams for the A.M. hours with delicious recipes to match ‘em.
Stewed Apples with Butternut Squash Ice Cream
Start by making the stewed apples.
Combine 6 cups of chopped apples with 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of butter, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1/4 cup of apple cider, and cook over medium heat until apples are tender for about 45 minutes.
Add to a dish and top with a scoop (or two ;) ) of our Butternut Squash Butterscotch ice cream. Finish with a sprinkling of granola for a nice added crunch.
Honey Banana Breakfast Parfait
Slice up some bananas and add a scoop of our Creamy Honey Banana to your breakfast granola. Bonus points for fancy parfait cups.
Waffle Combo Extraordinaire
We love this for really special days like birthdays, the first day of holiday break, or any other reason to celebrate.
Add a scoop of any of our flavors of ice cream to your children’s waffles for a nutritional and flavor boost!
