Calci-YUM Rich Summer Treats

 Calci-YUM Rich Summer Treats


Refreshing, delicious and calcium-rich these frozen treats are going to keep you and the kids happy all summer long. 10 easy recipes to cool you down this summer. Truthfully, we enjoy them year round!



As a parent, one of the many things on my mind is proper nutrition and calcium is very important for my growing 5-year-old.  I do not know about you, but anything that I want my daughter to eat is pretty much a challenge. Maybe it is the age, who knows. So I have gotten creative. Desserts and treats are loaded with good nutrition more often than not.

We have partnered with the Arizona Dairy Council to celebrate June Dairy Month. We selected 10 of our favorite Calci-YUM Rich Summer Treats and we love them all. Smoothie shakes, ice pops and frozen yogurt are some of our favorite treats and we make them in every flavor imaginable.

What is your favorite calcium-rich treat? The ice pops are my favorite. I make them on the weekend and freeze them in resealable snack size bags and hand them out anytime a snack or treat is asked for.

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours. 

I am excited to share with our Arizona residents: Visit dairycouncilofaz.org from June 1 - 30 to participate in “Daily Dose of Dairy” for the chance to win a daily prize, which includes a $25 grocery gift card and a Shamrock Farms free dairy certificate.
