Summer wouldn't be complete without a special cool down treat. This year must be the summer of pools. We have been pool sitting for our neighbor, swimming in Nana and Papa's pool and been to fabulous hotels with outrageous pool. Time for swim lessons and scrumptious popsicles to cool down by the pool with.

Celebrate the summer with this Raspberry Lemonade Cupcake; with a light and fresh, tart and tangy cake; topped with a fabulous raspberry icing.
The lemon flavor is simply to die for, with a little something extra that makes this a 'happy dance in the kitchen' kind of cupcake. Take 2 you will thank me!
Fast and simple with a gourmet flavor, check out the recipe.

We are truly enjoying the fruits of summer this year. This ice pop was inspired by my desire to make an awesome ice pop that brought together some of the flavors of the islands and then luckily, the planets aligned (aka the store sales cooperated). We combined some of our favorite flavors to make an incredibly eye catching amazingly flavored ice pop. This one our Munchkin calls an I-Pop. Cute huh?
Truly a rainbow of fruit flavor. Geesh, every time I start to describe this I run across another product advertisement. Those Saturday morning commercials must have been really good as a kid. They are still stuck in my head. Taste the rainbow!

If you are looking for a tasty way to beat the summer heat, the Raspberry Lemonade Yogurt Ice Pop is just the perfect treat. Chad and I have a deep love and appreciation for all things lemon. Whether its sweet treats, savory eats, household remedies or beauty treatments we are always happy to use lemon. We always have a fruit basket full of lemons and a good portion of the year we are fortunate enough to have a tree full of lemons.
As I was preparing these fabulously flavorful frozen treats, all I could think about was biting into one. Savoring the layers of tart lemon juice and lemon zest and contrasting sweet raspberries perfectly combined with smooth and creamy protein packed yogurt. I very carefully constructed each popsicle. Took my time, I mean look at those raspberries, all with the end game in mind. These were mine! Chad doesn't care for popsicles that much and Munchkins palette isn't quite developed enough to really enjoy lemon yet. This creation was all for me.

These fantastic Red White and Blue-Berry Popsicles make the perfect 4th of July treat! Cold, refreshing and packed with vitamin C, antioxidants and power boosting protein! Stunning to look at and spectacular to eat. Kids and adults alike will gobble these up!
These popsicles are simply delicious and have only 5 ingredients. Made with fresh fruit, all natural yogurt, honey and your favorite vanilla. This is definitely a dessert I am proud to feed my daughter and I love to watch her dive into this popsicle. She eats the center first, the vanilla honey yogurt layer is her first choice. Go figure. She knows what she wants! Which layer is your favorite?
