Never made your own sherbet before? This one only has five ingredients, so it couldn't be simpler! Just blend the fresh mango with sugar, lime juice, and coconut milk, then pop into the freezer can of an ice cream maker and follow the directions for your machine. Top each serving with toasted coconut and you’ve got a healthy sweet treat. Add ½ cup of additional fresh fruit on top and you’re guaranteed that your kids will get a serving of fruit! Kids ages 2 to 6 need two servings of fruit each day. Older kids and teens should get three servings daily.
Gluten-free, this grain is also perfect for those who need to avoid gluten. Sure, our warming Breakfast Quinoa makes a wonderful start to your day, but it's also excellent as a post-sports snack, too. Try making it for your family with different fresh and dried fruits as the seasons change.
