Savory Summertime Sweets

With it now being the middle of Summer, many of us crave something sweet and cold after a long day of being out in the heat. There is nothing better than cooling off in the AC with a tall glass of iced water and yummy snacks that kids will be sure to enjoy. Keep reading for easy, refreshing summer snacks: Creamy Lime Popsicles, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Yogurt Bark, and the Perfect Peach Crisp. All of these treats are full of good ingredients and perfectly sweet. 

Creamy Lime Popsicles

This recipe for Creamy Lime Popsicles by Oh So Delicioso has only 3 ingredients: vanilla greek yogurt, lime zest and juice, and cream of coconut. All you have to do is slice, squeeze, and juice two limes, blend all the ingredients together, and pour into your favorite popsicle mold. Perfectly foolproof!

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Yogurt Bark 

This recipe for Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Yogurt Bark by Tasty is filling, chilled, and tasty (pun intended). All you need is greek yogurt, honey, cocoa powder, pretzels, and peanut butter. Most of these ingredients you may already have in your kitchen! Plus, you can use this recipe as a jumping off point to create your own flavor combinations. Instead of adding in cocoa powder, you can add in vanilla extract and top with fresh berries as a fruity alternative. The world is your oyster!

Perfect Peach Crisp

With summertime in full swing, it is the perfect time to visit your local farmer’s market and purchase delicious, peak-season fruit. This recipe for Perfect Peach Crisp by Delish is a flavorful summer treat that features fresh peaches, cinnamon, brown sugar, and ice cream (optional but highly recommended). We also recommend adding in one teaspoon of vanilla extract for extra flavor!
