Celebrate Palm Sunday With “Palm (Ice Cream) Sundaes”

I love celebrating feast days with kids with really fun food or recipes! Palm Sunday is always a big day at our house, and celebrating with ice cream sundaes is not only fun, but also easy for mom! You can find all of my holy week food ideas for kids here

I’m such a fan of the Sunday/Ice Cream Sundae pun (obviously. See my Divine Mercy Sundaes, Trinity Sundaes, and Pentecost Sundaes). And without further aideau, I present to you, the Palm Sundae!

The Palm Sundae recipe is included in my new cookbook for families– The Symbolic Holy Week & Easter Cookbook! This cookbook includes 23 recipes that point to the true meaning of Easter. It only includes 29 pages of bonus printables! You do not want to miss this amazing resource. 

Ingredients Needed For Palm Sunday Treat:

  • Green Ice Cream (We used pistachio but green sherbert or mint chocolate chip would also work nicely)
  •  Mint leaves
  • Cherries

Symbolism: The mint leaves and green ice cream are for the green palms waived by the people on the first Palm Sunday in the Bible, and the red cherry is the liturgical color of this day! 🙂

To make mint leaves into palm fronds: Just cut little triangle snips out with some clean scissors. Or don’t bother clipping them at all because you don’t have a blog and therefore don’t need stellar pictures of this. 😉

  1. I love the sundae ideas too…because EASY! I like to bake, actually, but I just don’t always have a lot of time to make it happen.

    Oh my! New follower here–you had me at sundae! 😀

  3. Mom raising 4 rambunctious boy saints here and I chuckled so much at your recommendation to fold palms right away to avoid palm swords! Solidarity, mama! but for real, I was a goner at palm sundaes- GENIUS. Thank you for being my #1 go to for catholic living!
