Finding Dory Fun: Blueberry Ice Cream Recipe for Kids

blueberry-ice-cream-finding-dory-recipe-for-kids

Looking for a fun way to celebrate the release of Finding Dory into theaters? Whip up this movie-inspired blueberry ice cream recipe with your kids! By now, you know how much I love Disney movies and making Disney inspired treats with my daughter! It is a great bonding activity with my little one as well a learning one! We get to chat while we mix and cook! She gets to learn how to measure ingredients and how to mix. Teaching kids basic cooking skills is so important! You never know when they will need it and I don’t want them to embrace adulthood clueless about cooking and baking! The trick to get kids excited about the kitchen is to find something they can relate too and enjoy!

Since my daughter loves Disney movies (and who doesn’t), I try to come up with Disney themed recipes!  For this week’s recipe, we made a Finding Dory inspired recipe. It is a basic blueberry ice cream recipe but we had fun decorating it around the movie! Let’s get this started!

With the release of Finding Dory, I bet all the little ones are going to be begging for an Under the Sea party.

  2. Oh, what a cute idea! We love to see this movie, I think it is best to spent the movie eating this blueberry ice cream.

  3. What a fun idea… making food to coordinate with a movie. We make homemade ice cream but so far just vanilla, this sounds way more tastier though.


  4. I’ve created homemade ice cream. but none with a Disney theme. It’s a great idea for making any special event even better. A lovely Snow White vanilla ice cream with Queen of Hearts soft jellied topping sounds yummy.

  5. oh my goodness this looks awesome. what a great recipe and the cup? thats adorable. who wouldn’t love that!

  6. What a fun recipe for the theatre release of Finding Dory. We can’t wait to see Finding Dory, and this snack looks like it would be the perfect accompaniment. Especially since it’s so hot now! Ice cream is great to cool off with.


  7. What a fun treat! My daughter loves to cook with me and she also loves Disney movies, so I’m sure she’d love to make this Finding Dory ice cream!

  8. How cute is this!? And it looks tasty too! My girls are so excited about the new Dory movie. We’ll have to make this ahead of our trip to get them even more excited!

  9. This looks really good I will have to make this for my grandkids when we sit down to watch the movie. I just bought them the finding dory table and chair set from Wal-Mart and they loved it.


  10. Holy cow these are adorable!!! My toddler LOVES “Nemo” so I’m definitely putting this on the list to make when we watch Finding Dory this year! The whole family including us are excited about it – it looks so cute!

  11. An ice cream maker was one of my favorite purchases. I love making it myself. But this recipe is so super fun! The kids & I will have a blast making it.
