This week the temperature is going to be in the 100’s almost every day where I live! This heat has me trying to think about refreshing treats that I can quickly whip up and enjoy. This recipe is easy, simple, healthy and delicious. Here is how to make frozen yogurt blueberry bites.

Ingredients:

        1 cup blueberries

        ½ cup vanilla yogurt

        Toothpicks

Place a blueberry on a toothpick and dip it in yogurt. Place berries on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in your freezer for about an hour. Then, enjoy! You can also store these in an airtight container in your freezer. I love eating these as a snack while watching a movie, or enjoying them outside while I read on my porch.

Enjoy!

XOXO, Chels

Although summer is coming to a close that doesn’t mean that the warm weather is done with its smothering assault on us. It stays warm where I live wellll into September, so I am going to take advantage of it as long as I can, and that means whipping up sweet cold treats. Here is one of my fav cold recipes: Nutella fudgesicles! Fudgesicles are fudge popsicles. Here is how to whip yourself up a batch!

Ingredients:red-nutella-pop_250

  • 1 ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • ¼ cup & 2 tbsp Nutella
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened coca powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Put the milk and corn starch in a saucepan and stir until the starch is dissolved. Place the mixture over medium heat and add the Nutella and cocoa powder. Stir it frequently so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom. Heat it for about 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens and then take it off of the heat. Stir in the vanilla and let the mixture cool for 5 minutes while stirring frequently. Once it has cooled pour the mixture into the molds and freeze it for 6 hours or more. When you are ready to devour them, hold the mold under warm water to help the fudsicles come loose.

These sound like heaven! Woud YOU try these fudgy pops?

XOXO, Chels

Cookies and Cream Popsicles

Milk and Oreos. What a match made in heaven. Even better? Cookies and cream ice cream. Even BETTER? Cookies and cream popsicles! If you are like me and you live in a place where summers are totally squelching, you are in constant need of a cool-down treat. I have just the thing to cool your jets!photo-2 copy

Ingredients:

–       4 oz fat free cream cheese, softened

–       4 oz fat free plain Greek Yogurt

–       ¼ cup fat free milk

–       2 tbsp powdered sugar

–       6 Oreos, crushed

Combine the cream cheese, yogurt, powdered sugar, and milk together in a bowl until the mixture is creamy and smooth. Once your ingredients are thoroughly mixed, stir in the crushed Oreos. An (and fun) way to crush the Oreos is to grab a gallon sized Ziploc baggy, toss the cookies inside, seal it nice and tight, and then take a wooden spoon to the bag. Crush those cookies, and crush ‘em good! Whack them with the spoon to your heart’s intent. This is also a good way to let off some steam, I might add. So, anyway, after you have added the crushed cookies to the mixture pour it into popsicle molds. Place the molds in the freezer, and boom you’re done!

I am so excited to try this quick and easy (and frosty) version my favorite midnight snack, Oreos and milk!

XOXO, Chels

Are you in need of a quick cool down snack? Then try this super fast sorbet in a bag! The serving is just the right size for the Insider in need of a quick sweet treat!

Ingredients:chelsea crockett

  • One gallon size Ziploc® brand Freezer Bag
  • One pint size Ziploc® brand Freezer Bag
  • 6 tablespoons rock salt
  • One tray of ice cubes
  • One half cup juice
  • Optional: cream, sugar
  1. First, make the ice bag. To do this, empty a full try of ice cubes into a 1 gallon Ziploc bag.
  2. Second, make the juice bag.  Pour half a cup of fruit juice into a 1 pint Ziploc freezer bag. To make the sorbet creamier, add one cup of cream and a tablespoon of sugar here. Squeeze all the air out of the bag and check that you securely seal the bag, and place it into the large bag of ice.
  3. Next, wrap the bag in a towel and shake it for five minutes. Remove the bag that once held the fruit juice, and check out your fresh bag of sorbet. Wipe the ice, salt and water off the outside of the sorbet bag so it doesn’t get in the sorbet. Scoop your sweet treat into a bowl and enjoy!

I am so excited to make my own personal sorbet. Are you?

XOXO, Chels
