Sweet Treats: Coconut Fudgsicles

If you are like us, and most of the world, you might just have a dairy allergy or intolerance in your family. When little ones have an allergy it can be difficult, especially something like dairy that can be pretty common in everyday foods, especially in the summer when ice-cream is abundant! We try to keep only dairy free cold treats at home, but it can be difficult to find them in some stores, and the selection isn’t always great. That is why we love to find great recipes to try at home that give our little ones some fun cool summer treats without the fear of an allergic reaction.

This incredible recipe comes from the Creekside Cook. The Creekside Cook is none other than Donalyn, a wife, mom, and grandma that loves to cook, grow her own ingredients, and share her wealth and knowledge of good food with others. Her incredible dairy free recipe is a life saver of moms with kids who have a dairy allergy. Check out her blog for all of her incredible recipes.

Donalyn’s incredible Coconut milk fudge popsicles are going to be a go-to treat in our house all summer long. We hope it is at your home too. Check out the recipe and tutorial now at her website.

Science and Technology: Emailing a Tool a World Away

In December NASA and Astronaut Butch Wilmore accomplished a very exciting and incredible thing; NASA emailed a socket wrench to space and Butch Wilmore printed it and used it. This sounds a little crazy right? Well it actually happened. Astronaut Butch Wilmore is living on the International Space Station right now where he is conducting experiments for NASA. Unfortunately he realized that he needed a pretty common tool, a socket wrench, but it was nowhere to be found. Usually when astronauts at the International Space Station need something they have to wait for NASA to send it on a rocket ship, which is not the fastest delivery system despite how fast a rocket ship is. It can take weeks or months for the astronauts to receive what they need. But Butch needed a socket wrench, asap. So what was the best solution? A 3D printer. This technology is still pretty new, it has been used to create many things her eat home including printing human organs like hearts for transplant patients. But to email something from Earth to space and print it and use it? Unheard of. Until now. NASA emailed the socket wrench to Butch in December and he received it, printed it, and used it. The tool is fully functional and made out of plastic. Now Butch can compete his experiments and repairs.

What would you and your boys print if you had access to a 3D printer? What could you create or build that would be useful to people? What would you create just for fun?
