    I guess it's okay if the fruits are in the safe food list but if you add they should only have milk once in a while I think. So maybe as a treat they can have it.

    Yes, they should be fine. Basically if the ingredients are on the safe food list, what you do to them can't really hurt. If you totally burn them, maybe not because it's 80% ashes but otherwise, sounds great.:D

    You should try melted ice cream then! It's not cold and it still tastes really good!

    Good idea! lOL. :D Ooh I was wondering about juice too. Is it okay to put juice in their water bowls once in a while as long as all of the ingredients are on the safe food list?:confused:

    What type. I would not try apple juice if it's got tons of presevatives and sugars in it. If it's all on the Safe food list then sure.

    I gave them their first smoothie today. :) It had a banana, milk, and berries in it. I don't know if they like it or not yet.

    You should only feed dairy once a month or so. I think that it's hard for them to digest...:confused: Have you found out if they like it yet?
