We are in summer here in Australia and we are trying to make the most of it, sensibly. As I have written here as well, our kids' diet is almost sugar free. They have good amounts of natural sugar in their foods such as fresh fruit but we have chosen to exclude the added sugar as much as we could in their early years in life. Mr. Junior has tried some sugary foods this year as his taste buds are pretty developed and he knows the difference between good and bad, healthy and unhealthy, all-time and occasionally. However, Miss Junior is still at a stage where she is not introduced to sugar including icecream. 
On hot days, we have come up with our own version of sugar-free icecream and we like calling it 'yo-s-cream'. In the pictures below, you can see our plain 'yo-s-cream'. You can also make it with fruit (such as berries and mangoes) mash.

The plain yo-s-cream has only one ingredient; natural yoghurt. (You can add your choice of fruit to it if you like). The materials used are a small freezer-safe container and a toothpick or a quarter of a skewer. Simply, just put some yoghurt into the container, put the toothpick in the middle and place in the freezer until frozen. You can serve it as is or with some fruit.
