With school almost out and temperatures rising, sometimes the easiest thing is to fire up the BBQ, throw on some burgers and call it a party. After all, who wants to spend time cooking indoors?
But when you BBQ often, sometimes a get-together loses its special occasion sparkle.
So we’re bringing you three recipes for cool summer treats to make your next party a sweet—and special—one.
2 cups fresh blueberries
2 Tsp. Organic Honey
2 Cups Vanilla Greek yogurt
1/4 Cup milk
Add yogurt, fresh blueberries, honey and milk to blender and blend until smooth. Fill each frozen treat mold, and freeze until firm. Swap out the blueberries for mango, strawberries, blackberries or raspberries for a sweeter treat.
JELLO PUDDING POPS
If you were a kid in the 1980s, you remember these. Not only are they the easiest treat ever, but you’ll also appreciate savouring the nostalgia.
1 package instant pudding (chocolate, cookies and cream, banana cream, etc.)
2 cups whole milk
Whisk ingredients together for 2 minutes, and fill your popsicle molds. Insert a popsicle stick into each mold, and freeze until firm—usually in five or more hours.
CHUNKY MONKEY FROZEN YOGURT POPS
1 cup vanilla yogurt
3 tbsp. maple syrup or liquid sweetener of choice
1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
Mini chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients together, and pour into popsicle molds. Insert a popsicle stick into each mold, and freeze until firm.
