We often have the ice cream truck come once a week – one of my sons in particular has a bit of a sweet tooth and always wants to buy one. Don’t get me wrong we love a bit of spontaneity and sometimes do it as a special treat but I like to have something else ready which is less expensive and a healthier option when I can.

So when the ice cream truck comes around – we have homemade ice blocks ready made in freezer or get the kids together make a smoothie and put left overs in homemade containers!
