Healthy Ice Cream Cone Snacks

You know when your kids come home from school they are starved, as if they had not had any food all day. This never ceases to amaze me. But this is nice for working moms who do not always get home at the same time the kids do or for moms who are home and can also have a snack while listening to the kid about their day at school.

What is really nice about these snacks is that you use plain ice cream cones so there really is no mess to clean up. They look good, are delicious, and have fruit, which is not always easy to get them to eat. And you control what you want to put in them.

To make it less messy, you can always use a pastry bag or sandwich bag with a end cut off to put these into the cup's without making a mess. Make sure the hole is big enough for the fruit to get through.

Orange Pudding Cones

Ingredients:

  • 1 (3.5 oz.) pkg. vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup frozen OJ concentrate, thawed and undiluted
  • ice cream cones

Directions:

Empty dry pudding mix into a medium saucepan. Stir in milk. Place over low heat; stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat, stir in undiluted OJ. Chill. Spoon into ice cream cones. Now if you want to, you can add marshmallows or anything else that your kids would like. Store in your refrigerator. Makes 6 servings.

Ambrosia Filling

Ingredients:

  • 1 (2 oz.) pkg. whipped topping mix
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup maraschino cherry syrup (saved from the maraschino cherries for in this recipe)
  • 1/4 cup chilled orange sections, cut into thirds (or drained mandarin oranges)
  • additional fruit, optional
  • 1/2 cup maraschino cherries, cut smaller if desired
  • ice cream cones

Directions:

In small mixing bowl, blend together whipped topping mix, milk, and cherry syrup. Beat at high speed on mixer 5 minutes or until stiff. Fold in remaining ingredients. Chill. Spoon into cones and keep chilled. Add a cherry on top.

If you want, add what the kid's like, making sure the fruit you have washed is dry. You can add nuts or coconut and sprinkles on the top for that "boy that look's good" look.

Note: I also would dry the cherries on a paper towel so they do not cause the whipping cream to become runny.

I hope these are some help for you I think they are great and it gives them fruit which they need and something not filling like a lot of other things are. Enjoy!
