Sweet Tooth Calling? Here Are Five Healthy Summer Treats To Sink Your Teeth Into!

Summer is here and it's time to indulge in the healthier side of things!  As the temperature gets warmer, our sweet tooth remains and it's nice to have some healthier options to direct our children and families toward.  

These can be hard ideas to come up with, so we've taken up that responsibility for you!! 

Get out your recipe pad and pen...  it's time to get inspired! 


ALMOST APPLE PIE - 

Sweet Tooth Calling?  Here Are Five Healthy Summer Treats To Sink Your Teeth Into!This is a great one! Have the delicious perk of apple pie without the guilt or heaviness. Here's what you want to do.  Cut your apple into very thin slices and lay them down side by side, slightly overlapping.  Finely chop cashews and toss with cinnamon, sea salt, pure maple syrup (to taste) and rolled oats if you like. Once the crumble is to your liking, spread evenly across the apple slices and serve!  Easy as.... pie!

TROPICAL POPSICLES -

Grab your favorite tropical fruits.  Banana, mango, papaya, pineapple ....  Cube each into bite size pieces and slide onto wooden skewers. Stick the skewers in the freezer and take out in a couple hours to enjoy. Kids love these, because they aren't overwhelmed with choices and they get the joy of a Popsicle without the extra sugar!

SMOOTHIE SORBET -

This one is a true favorite! Grab your favorite frozen fruit and send them through a juicer with a double masticator!  The result is incredible.  You will have a purely fruit sorbet that everyone will love. 

CHOCOLATE & FROZEN BLUEBERRIES -

This delicious creation calls for a base of 1 semi frozen banana OR 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream.  You ready for this?  Warm some fresh blueberries on the stove top.  Spoon berries on to banana or ice cream.  Drizzle with chocolate sauce.  Open wide and enjoy! (Have seconds nearby; they'll be wanted) 

STRAWBERRIES & CREAM -

For an added bonus, take the family or a few friends out to a u-pick strawberry field. Nothing tastes quite as good as the strawberries you pick yourself!  Slice strawberries and set aside in a bowl.  Finely chop fresh mint leaves and set aside.  Next, pop open a lemon or vanilla flavored yogurt and add to bowl of strawberries.  Sprinkle the top with your mint garnish and devour.  Your taste buds will thank you....  you're welcome!
