The weather is getting warmer, the trees are getting greener, and the sun is shining a bit brighter. That means summer must be on its way! It is time to whip out those popsicle molds, wipe the dust off, and put them to good use. If you are looking for a fun fruity treat that will make you feel like a kid again, keep reading!

Ingredients:

  • Your favorite fruit juice
  • Sour gummy worms

Take your popsicle mold and stick the gummy worms to the insides of the molds. This keeps the worms from sinking to the bottom. Next, pour your juice into the molds. Stick them in the freezer for a few hours, or all night. Next time you are sweating up a storm outside, go grab one of these fun treats and enjoy cooling down in the sweetest way possible.

Don’t have popsicle molds? Just use mini paper cups and popsicle sticks!

XOXO, Chels

When I think about summer snacks, fruit always seems to come to mind. A juicy, sweet piece of fruit always seems to hit the spot in the sweltering heat. If you are a fruit lover, and a snacker, then you will love this totally snack-worthy fruit salsa recipe! Plus, you can make cinnamon tortilla chips to dip into your sweet salsa. Delish!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups pineapple chunksstrawberrypineapplesalsa2_bakedbyrachel
  • 2 cups chopped strawberry
  • 8 tortillas, 8 inches wide
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted, melted butter
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl and set it aside. Cut your tortillas into chip-sized pieces. Cut them like you would a pizza. Brush the pieces with melted butter and then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on them. Bake them for 10-15 minutes, then transfer them to a plate to cool. In a big bowl, toss the pineapple and strawberry chunks. If you want, you can add a dash of sugar to this to sweeten it up a bit. Now all that is left to do is gobble this fresh treat up with your cinnamon sugar chips!

So yummy and so fresh!

XOXO, Chels
