Frozen Cherry Yogurt Pops

During the summer months, I’m always up for a cold treat. When I’m ready for my mid-day snack I always end up wanting something sweet which doesn’t always equate to being healthy. Its like, I go to the store for some organic vegetables and I always come home with regular ice-cream. Weird. So, when my boys and I went cherry picking in my neighbors orchard, (no, we aren’t creepers…they invited us,) it was the perfect chance to make something healthy AND yummy! Frozen Cherry Yogurt Pops!

cherry yogurt pops 1

 

When I was growing up my mom always made these yogurt pops and I thought I would give them a little twist using the cherries.

INGREDIENTS:

-Fresh cherries, preferably ones from your friendly neighbor

-About 2 cups vanilla yogurt

-1 small tub of Cool Whip

Start by pitting all your cherries and throwing them in your food processor. Get them nice and chopped up.

Next, throw your cherries and all your other ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Stir until mixed.

mix

Then spoon it into your popsicle molds. I like to use those little mini shot-glass sized plastic cups because…they’re cuter. :) Plus these tend to melt faster than regular popsicles so having them in smaller portions helps with mess control.

frozen

Keep them in the freezer for a few hours until completely frozen and serve!

Enjoy! Do you remember the Frozen Pink Lemonade Pie I shared last year? That was one of my very first posts for the chicks. Ah…the good ole days. :)

Dole Whip

Post may contain affiliate links. How to Make Dole Whip

I have a new obsession! DOLE WHIP. You may have tried other recipes but I promise you, this one delivers.  My sister made it for a family get together and I was in LOVE with it. So creamy and fresh, I’ve begged her to make it again, and she finally just passed on her recipe. Of course I have to share with all of you because that’s just how I am.

Dole Whip
Ingredients
  • 1 quart (4 cups) Dole Pineapple Juice
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ cup milk if needed
Instructions
  1. Pour the pineapple juice into a bowl and add sugar mixing until sugar has dissolved.
  2. Add in the cream and vanilla and mix well.
  3. Pour into your ice cream maker. If there is still room in the machine add the extra milk.
  4. Follow instructions for your ice cream maker for freezing.
  5. Once it is done, serve and ENJOY!
I first fell in love with Dole Whips at Disneyland, one of my favorite places. Sometimes you have to wait in line for a while to snag one of these tasty treat.  Well, now you can make it at home.

But if you’re thinking of booking a Disneyland vacation, check out Get Away Today. They always have the best deal and you can use promo code: CraftingChicks to save an extra $10. Then you can snag a Dole Whip there. dole-whip-recipe

Monkey Banana Muffins

Hi! I’m Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous® and I’m happy to be here to share a quick easy food craft with you today as part of the Chicks’ fun Summer Series! {love those girls!!} The theme is Rainforest and every time I think of a rain forest, I think of Monkeys! So I made these easy Monkey Banana Muffins as a fun treat for your littles.

Monkey Banana Muffins

These delicious little monkeys not only look cute, but they’re fun to eat! My 2 boys {ages 4 and 6} were my taste testers and they loved them! So these muffins are kid-approved.

Notice: I gave them all hair-do’s! 😉

How to Make Monkey Banana Muffins

Ingredients:

  • Banana Break Mix {yes, I went the easy route!}
  • Cupcake liners
  • Vanilla wafers {2 per monkey}
  • Black Gel Icing
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Small Black Candies {2 per monkey}

banana-muffins1

Yep, I used a banana bread mix! Don’t shoot me! But you can use your favorite banana bread recipe and cook it in muffin tins…or buy a box like I did! hehe!

Make your banana muffins according to the directions on the box.

banana-muffins2

Let the muffins cool before decorating.

monkey-muffins1

Frost each muffin with chocolate frosting. Notice how I gave each monkey a “hair-do” with a frosting swirl?! This one sorta looks like Elvis to me. lol

Place 1 vanilla water for the mouth, break the second vanilla wafer in half and place them on for the ears. Place the candies for the eyes and then draw 2 nostrils and a mouth with the black gel frosting. And done!

Super cute and very yummy! Your kids will love these monkey muffins!

Homemade S’mores Ice Cream

Hi Crafting Chicks readers, I’m Becky from Bite of Delight, and I’m so excited to be part of the Summer Series!  One of our favorite ways to kick off summer is with rich and creamy homemade ice cream.  But when you combine ice cream with another one of our summer favorites (s’mores!) you get the ultimate summertime dessert!  To sweeten this a little more, I’ve made it no churn, so it’s super simple to make and doesn’t require any special kitchen gadgets.  Not only that, but once you taste this delicious, creamy treat, you’ll suddenly want to go backyard camping with the kids!

No-Churn S’mores Ice Cream

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • dash salt
  • 3 oz chocolate, chopped (I used 2 (1.55 oz) Hershey bars)
  • 1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 4 graham crackers
  • hot fudge for drizzling

Directions:

  1. On a lined cookie sheet, toast the marshmallows under a hot broiler until they are golden.  Let cool.
  2. Whip the cream until stiff peaks form.
  3. Add the sweetened condensed milk and dash of salt to a medium mixing bowl.  Fold in the whipped cream.
  4. Add the chopped chocolate, half of the toasted marshmallows, and 3 graham crackers (broken into pieces) to the whipped cream mixture.
  5. In a freezer-safe container (I used a 9×5 bread pan), pour half of the mixture.  Spread evenly in the container, then add half of the remaining marshmallows, and pieces from half of the remaining cracker.  Drizzle with slightly warmed hot fudge (only warm it enough to get it to a drizzling consistency, it should not be hot).
  6. Spread the remaining half of the whipped cream mixture into the pan.  Add the remaining marshmallows, remaining graham cracker (broken into pieces), and drizzle with more of the warmed hot fudge.
  7. Cover well and freeze for at least 6 hours.

Notes:

  • Any freezer-safe container will work: bread pan, glass or ceramic baking dish, plastic storage container, etc.
  • Marshmallow lovers can add up to 2 cups of toasted marshmallows (we decided on 1 1/2 cups because my quality control foreman (husband) thought 2 cups was too much…but my marshmallow-loving friend thought 2 cups was just barely enough)
  • The graham crackers soften in the ice cream.  If you want crunchy graham crackers in your ice cream, add additional crackers when serving.

Becky blogs over at Bite of Delight.  She is wife to one, mama to four, and spends a ridiculous amount of time cleaning the kitchen…where she spends most of her time cooking up something new!  When she’s not cooking (or doing dishes), you can find her running, reading, or trying to keep up with her kids.  Follow along on her adventures, she’s always cooking up something fun!

Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles

These fruity popsicles are the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day.

Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles: These fruity treats are the perfect way to cool down on a hot, summer day.

I don’t know about you but I am super excited for summer to almost be here! If it was up to me we would have summer 9 months out of the year and it would only snow on Christmas Eve. But since that will never happen I’ll just enjoy the weather while I can go. And what better way to enjoy summer than with a nice, cool treat.

Last summer our favorite treat were Otter Pops. We got the ones from Costco since they didn’t have high fructose corn syrup. What they still had was artificial colors. And as we quickly learned those artificial colors did a number on my boys. We’ve been working on getting all artificial colors out of our house. I knew as the temperatures started getting warmer my boys would want their favorite summer treats and I just couldn’t give those to them.

Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles: These fruity treats are the perfect way to cool down on a hot, summer day.

That’s where these these strawberry lemonade popsicles came from. Everything is all natural, no preservatives, no artificial colors and packed full of flavor. The sweetness of the strawberries mixes perfectly with the tartness of the lemonade and with only two ingredients they are super easy to make too.

Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles

Serves: 6

Ingredients
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, diced
  • ½ cup lemonade starter
Instructions
  1. Combine two ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Fill popsicle molds and let freeze for at least 3-4 hours.

Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles: These fruity treats are the perfect way to cool down on a hot, summer day.

 Some popsicle making tips:

  • Don’t rush taking the popsicles out. I only let the first batch freeze for 2 hours and they fell apart and melted fast.
  • The easiest way to get popsicles to come out of the molds smoothly is to run hot water along the outside and then slowly pull the sticks up.
