Summer Sweet Treats: Popsicles

We love summer sweet treats, anything from ice cream to popsicles are total hits in our house. I love creating new and fun sweet treats while the kids are home for summer break. This year I found an idea that totally blew my mind, and surprised my kids. Milk and Cereal Popsicles. Yes, you read that right. It seems a little unconventional, but that is part of its appeal. It’s sweet. It is unexpected, and it has the slightest crunch to it. It’s amazing.

If you want to try something that will totally impress your kids and their friends for that next big summer play date then you have got to try this recipe. It isn’t too hard to make, its cold, its sweet, and it’s something everyone has the ingredients for.

Summer sweet treats

What you will need:

  • 1 med/large banana (or 2 small)
  • 1 Cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup milk
  • 1/2 Cup dry cereal

What you will do:

  1. In the bowl of your mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the banana on medium until mashed and smooth (approximately 1 minute).
  2. Slowly add in yogurt and milk. Continue mixing until blended. Add the cereal and stir by hand to avoid crushing it.
  3. Pour into popsicle molds. Freeze 8 hours until solid.

You can even mix it up and make it with chocolate milk or strawberry milk. Add any cereal you like, the possibilities are endless!

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.
