I usually froze my leftover fruits just before they gone bad. It would such a huge waste throwing them away. One of the many ways is to make milkshake or smoothie outta them. This is also a great way to coax your kids to eat more fruits and ginger. Yes, ginger. They will not know that the milkshake or smoothie contains ginger (unless you tell them). We all know the health benefits of ginger and kids tend to avoid them at all cause.
Not that ice cream is good for them, but at least they are drinking up some fruits and ginger, right? I also found out (after many research) that the tops of the strawberries actually are edible and contains the same health benefits of kale. I also added an extra touch of sprinkles. You know, to attract the kids. I hope you will give this recipe a try and coax your kids into eating more fruits and ginger.

Please visit my "Sqirl Inspired French Toast" page for the strawberry compote recipe.
Using a pastry brush, coat the drinking lips of the serving glass with strawberry compote.
Sprinkle the confetti sprinkles onto the coated lips.
Chill serving glass in the fridge until ready to serve.
In a blender, add ice cream, milk, strawberries and ginger.
Pulse the mixture a few times to break up the ice-cream.
Blitz it up to combine the mixture.
*As soon as you see the mixture is combine well, stop blitzing. Over-blitzing will cause the ice-cream to melt super fast and causing it to split.*
Pour the milkshake into serving glass.
Garnish with whipped cream.
Lastly, add a scoop of strawberry compote over the top.
