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.

Fourth of July Treats

Fourth of July treats

This Fourth of July try some new festive treats for your family. There are so many different thins you could do but this year why not go the quick, easy, and simple route. Kids love sweet Fourth of July treats, hey so do adults for that matter, but why does a sweet treat have to be bad for you? Why not create a sweet and cool treat that won’t sugar up your already super sweet babies? Well these fantastic fruit skewers are a sweet treat that won’t add to your already hot house with the use of a hot oven, and they are good for you!

What You Will Need:

7 wooden skewers
1 package of blueberries
1 package of strawberries
2-3 bananas

What You Will Do:

Wash all of your berries. Then slice of the green leaves on the strawberries and slice them in half.
Slice your bananas into small slices about the size of quarters.
Now take your first skewer and slide 5 blueberries all the way to the top. Then place a banana slice, then a strawberry, another banana, and another strawberry.
Repeat with the next three skewers.
On the fifth skewer begin you strawberry and banana pattern again beginning with strawberry then banana. Repeat 3 more times then end with a final strawberry. Repeat on the remaining skewers.

If you are looking to be just a little bad (and let’s face it we are all bad sometimes) try substituting marshmallows for the bananas. It adds a small sugary treat to your patriotic dessert. Enjoy these Fourth of July treats!
