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

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!

It has been raining non-stop where I live, so I really haven’t been able to do anything fun outdoors for a while. Instead of sitting around and pouting about the rain, I decided to figure out fun things my friends and I could do indoors. I can remember making blanket forts when I was little and having a blast, so we decided to make tons of forts and then watch movies under them. Here is a perfect rainy day tent snack…S’mores dip!enhanced-9943-1435096761-7

  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 15 jumbo marshmallows, halved
  • Graham cracker squares

Place an 8 inch skillet on the center rack and preheat the oven to 450 with the skillet inside.  Once oven is preheated, use a pot holder to remove hot skillet from the oven. Put the butter in the skillet and use a pot holder to hold the handle and swirl the skillet so that the melted butter coats the bottom and sides. Layer the chocolate chips in an even layer into the bottom of the skillet. Arrange marshmallow halves over the surface of the chocolate chips, covering the chocolate completely. Bake the skillet for 5 to 7 minutes or until marshmallows are nice and toasty. Use an oven mitt to remove the skillet from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes.

Now devour!

What a sweet rainy day treat!

XOXO, Chels

Where I live, in the Midwest, summers are sweltering. Cool treats are always good to have on hand, but yummy frozen snacks are usually packed with sugar. Having heathy cold snacks on hand is a must. Here is one that I absolutely adore!

Ingredients:2286913

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 4 oz vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup semi sweet miniature chocolate chips

Place bananas, yogurt, peanut butter, and milk in a blender and blend until there are no chunks. Scoop the mixture into a plastic container and stir in the chocolate chips. Cover and freeze for 30-45 minutes for a froyo consistency. I like making this either as an afternoon cool-down treat or a midnight snack! Either will do 😉

As most of you know, I live in a small town in Illinois. One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to go to all of the homecoming fairs and parades in my town and all of the small towns surrounding mine. My friends and I love to go together and ride the rides and eat all of the delicious food, especially funnel cakes! Funnel cakes are the ultimate summer fair snack. Here is how to make your very own funnel cake fries at home! These treats are a bite size twist on your everyday funnel cake.

Ingredients:best-funnel-cake-fries-method-recipe-18

  • Funnel cake mix
  • 3-4 cups canola oil
  • Marshmallow crème for dipping

Make the funnel cake mix per the directions on the box. Once you have a smooth batter, pour it into an empty catchup bottle for piping. Add an inch of oil to a large pot and heat it to 350 degrees. Pipe the batter in long straight lines into the oil and let it fry until it is golden, which should take around 30-60 seconds per side. Remove them from the oil and place them on a plate. Sprinkle them with powdered sugar while they are still hot. If you want, you can dip them in marshmallow crème! So yummy.

 

Enjoy this sweet summer treat with friends or whip up a batch for yourself! 😉

 

XOXO, Chels
