Hi AutumnWind! We have an ice cream maker and I love it! For a 'lotsa fruit' idea, why not make sorbet? I don't have specific directions for one, but we do have the ben and jerry's book on making home made recipes and they have good ones in there! You'd use fruit and/or juice to make the sorbet and it is SO yummy! If you use just fruit you do the cut it up in sugar and let it sit thing, to get juice as well, and then some other liquid (we used red wine with raspberries before, but I don't think you'd give *that* to a kiddo! :LOL ) Corn syrup also works for some fruit as well.
I *highly* suggest getting the ben and jerry's book, they have a page on hot to proportionatly add sugar to fruit for the ice cream (although you may want to tone down sugar, if you're trying to be at least sorta healthy) and great recipes!!
If you want any more info, or me to paraphrase the ice cream base or something feel free to pm me!!!!
