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

I have posted a bunch of s’mores recipes lately…but can you blame me? They are just so good! There are so many awesome variations! This one might be my fav because it is the least messy of the recipes! Here is how to make your very own s’mores in a bag.

Ingredients:

  • Marshmallows
  • Chocolate chips
  • Bagged cookies, like Teddy Grahams or animal crackersfun-camping-idea-and-snack

Pick out your preferred cookies. Then pour the chocolate chips in the bag and roast your marshmallow. I am a “slightly burned” kinda gal. After you have roasted the marshmallow to perfection, smush the marshmallow into the bag and mix it all up with the cookies and chocolate! I eat my portable s’mores with a fork, it is the easiest/cleanest way to enjoy them!

These are the perfect bonfire/summer night snack!

XOXO,Chels

Homemade Watermelon Fruit Snacks

When you were little did you devour fruit roll ups in 2.5 seconds like I did? Those were the glory days, when you didn’t have to worry about how much sugar and terrible ingredients were in those sweet rolls of tangy goodness. Well, now I know how to make my very own fruit roll ups from actual fruit that I don’t feel bad about devouring!download (1)

Ingredients:

  • 8 cups of cubed watermelon
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar

Directions:

Line two baking sheets with silicone baking sheets or parchment paper and preheat the oven to 170 degrees. Puree the watermelon and drain the juice as much as you can. Press the juice out with paper towels or anything that works to get the juice out. Combine the drained watermelon with the sugar and blend it together to make a smooth mixture. Divide the watermelon puree between the 2 pans and spread it in an even layer. Bake it for 3 hours, rotating the pans 180 degrees and swapping rack levels every hour. Transfer the cooked fruit rolls onto cutting boards so you can cut them like you want, and then store them in an air tight container!

These snacks are the perfect sweet on-the, chewey treat!

XOXO, Chels

In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. In the bowl of a mixer, cream the butter and both kinds of sugar together until it is fluffy. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and then combine it on the low speed of your mixer. Add in the chocolate chips and marshmallows. Chill the dough for an hour or more and then lay out your graham crackers on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Place a tablespoon of dough on each graham cracker and press it down with your fingers. Bake them at 375 for 5 minutes and then remove them to place a Hershey’s piece on the top. Bake for another 5 to 7 minutes and then remove them and allow them to cool.

 

There you have it! Now you can enjoy s’mores even in the summer.

Pineapple Whip Frozen Treat

If you have ever been to Disneyland and had a meal there, then you have probably dined on their delicious pineapple whip! If not, I’ll explain this delicacy to you. Pineapple whip is a dessert that has the same consistency as ice cream! The pineapple whip that is sold in stores and served at Disney is packed with fillers and artificial flavors, which are things we really like to avoid, so I learned how to make it on my own, and make a healthy version! This yummy treat can be served at any summer party or get-together, or even just as a sweet treat after dinner!

Ingredients:img-2250010-1-dole-whip1

–       1 fresh pineapple, cut into pieces

–       1 cup almond milk

–       1 tablespoon honey

Freeze your pineapple chunks a day ahead. Full your blender or food processor with the pineapple, and then add your almond milk and honey. Blend the mixture until your pineapple is now at an ice cream like consistency. Your pineapple whip is now ready to serve, and because it only has 3 healthy ingredients it is totally guilt free!

Enjoy this sweet, cool treat!

XOXO, Chels

This Independence Day, get your snack on! Are you throwing a Fourth of July party or having family or friends over? If so, you want some cute ways to show your patriotic side through your food choice! Having cute snacks for your guests is always a must, so here is a super sweet treat to “wow” your guests!

All you need is bananas, strawberries, blueberries, and skewers. Slice your bananas into pieces about ¼ inch thick. chelsea crockett fruit
Clean your strawberries and cut the tops off, then slice them in half or cut them until they are in bite size pieces. Find a large serving tray. Take a skewer and start layering your bananas and strawberries onto the skewers. As you make more sewers, you want to lay them out and make the lines of bananas and strawberries line up to look like the red and white stripes of the flag. Also, as you get towards the end of your serving tray, add blueberries to the top of the skewers to look like the blue section of the flag, as seen in the picture.

This snack is not only healthy, it is super patriotic! God bless the USA!

XOXO, Chels

Hi Insiders 🙂

                Have you ever reached for that bag of chips after a day out by the pool, but decided not to eat them because they are bad for you?  I do that all the time, except I usually eat a few…opps!  Summer is the best time to get your body in shape.  I’m going to give you a few healthy options for summer snacks to keep your body energized.  Your body will love you for it!  They are easy to prepare and tasty as well!ChelseaCrockett- Cucumber Sandwiches

                Crackers and cheese is always a quick option for a snack.  Crackers are full of carbs and really high in sodium.  A great alternative to crackers are cumber slices.  They are low carb and just as yummy!  Slice them thick or thin and enjoy with your favorite kind of cheese.

                Chelsea Crockett- Orange SmoothieAnother great snack or breakfast option is a smoothie.  Full of fresh fruit, juices, and yogurt, a smoothie will give your body all the nutrients it needs!  Adding a small handful of spinach will take your smoothie to a whole new level…and you can’t even taste it!  Click here for a handful of my favorite smoothie recipes!

                My last healthy option is whole wheat tortillas.  They can be used for a variety of snacks!  Spreading peanut butter and sliced bananas on a whole wheat tortilla and rolling it up makes for a sweet summer snack.  A great lunch option is adding your favorite deli meat and cheese to a whole wheat tortilla.  It’s much better for you than bread!  I hope you all can start snacking smart and being healthy!

    Xoxo,

                Chelsea
