I’ve learned that my kids will usually gobble up anything when it’s served in a fun and creative way and this treat is no exception.  This summer serve fresh fruit in ice cream vessels for a creative and healthy alternative to all those sweets.  The kids will love eating their fruit from a crunchy waffle cone or bowl; so much that they may even come back for seconds!

Not only are these snacks fun, they are great for little hands to hold and you can eliminate the need for lots of plates and silverware.  Kids can grab a cone and enjoy their fresh and fruity treat on the go.

These treats are so easy to make, and you can even prepare and make them ahead of time, just make sure your fruit is dry before putting it into the cones.  Here is what you’ll need to make ice cream cone fruit cups:

  • Fresh Fruit (strawberries, mango, pineapple, blueberries, kiwi and grapes)
  • Whipped Topping
  • Waffle Ice Cream Bowls, Waffle Ice Cream Cones

Cut your fruit in bite size pieces.  Fill the Waffle Ice Cream Bowls with the fresh fruit, add a dollop of whipped topping and garnish with a strawberry. Or for another creative idea serve the fruit in Waffle Ice Cream Cones, even the pickiest kid won’t be able to refuse this sweet treat!

    I am thinking about using your idea of the waffle bowls for serving at a rehearsal dinner; does the juice from the fruit cause the waffle to become soggy and fall apart?

    • Hi! We used slotted spoons to drain most of the juice before putting them in the bowls. I wouldn’t recommend putting them in there until you are fairly close to being ready to serve them (about an hour prior)
