Searching for ideas for your little ones and your entire family to consume healthier foods but you are not quite sure where to begin? You can always begin with nutritious kids treats that will please your children and your entire family family.

A lot of people have the misconception that healthy foods are tasteless. Some people believe that if it is organic and in the specialty aisle of the supermarket that the product is cost prohibitive. This is not always the case.

Little ones love ice cream but fruit sorbet is a better option for them. Fruit sorbet is yummy and full of flavor. You can create a wonderful sorbet sundae as a nutritious and enjoyable healthy Kids snack.

Don't be surprised if the entire family begins scooping and topping the sorbet as quickly as the kids.

Sorbet captures the essence of summer fruits and is almost completely fat-free. Best of all this yummy dessert is easy to make. Sorbet contains no milk. Ice cream has air whipped into it, sorbet has almost none, which makes sorbet a dense and extremely yummy product.

You may add any type of berries to a sorbet recipe. Raspberries and strawberries make a yummy and healthy sorbet. Fruit Sorbet is packed with vitamins and fiber as well as a nice sweet taste. When you tire of eating fresh fruit, try some of these healthy recipes. Most of the recipes work well with frozen berries too. Sorbet is an awesome way of adding a touch of summer to the winter months
