Ice Cream for Breakfast in Bed
Prefer to stay in and eat ice cream for breakfast? Pick up your favorite flavor, or enjoy one of our suggestions:
Waffle with a Scoop
Top your waffle with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich
Toast two waffles and let cool. Sandwich your favorite ice cream between the waffles and enjoy! You could also do the same with healthy breakfast cookies instead of waffles.
Homemade Disney Copycat Pineapple Dole Whip
There are lots of copycat recipes for this Disney favorite. Here’s a good option.
Coffee with Ice Cream
Skip the cream and top your coffee with a scoop of vanilla. Fancy sugared waffles optional. Have an espresso maker? Do yourself a favor and make an affogato. It’s a simple, traditional Italian dessert that will blow your mind.
It’s just your favorite vanilla ice cream topped with a shot or two of espresso. Add a shot of liqueur, like Bailey’s, if you’d like. It also makes a great after-dinner dessert for a party.
Snow Ice Cream
Not sure if snow is in the forecast, but if we get a fresh snow, you can make this Snow Ice Cream. This can be made ahead and kept in the freezer. You may need to thaw in the microwave for 10-20 seconds before enjoying. My kids loved making this with me – and eating it, of course.
Fresh fruit and ice cream
It will seem a little more like breakfast if you throw some strawberries on top!
Protein Ice Cream
If you can’t imagine starting your day with something sugary-sweet, try one of the protein options, like Halo Top, available in your grocery store. Make sure to leave the ice cream sit out until it starts to get soft for better flavor.
Healthy Banana Ice Cream
Try this recipe to make your own “ice cream”. Don’t forget to freeze your bananas the night before!
If you’re REALLY not on board with ice cream, make yourself a yogurt sundae. Pick your favorite yogurt, add some fruit toppings, and a sprinkle of cereal on top. Pretend you’re walking on the wild side.
On thing is for sure, if you have children and you let them eat ice cream for breakfast on February 5, you’ll be a hero to them!
