Summer Food & Drink Fun!

It's officially summer! And if you're like me you're trying to come up with ideas to keep the kids busy-You can always come up with some cool kitchen creations together! Here's some especially for summer fun! :
Especially during the summer I love to make some refreshing smoothies for breakfast or snacks. I really love a tropical smoothie made with Orange Juice,Mixture of Tropical fruits(Banana,Mango,Pineapple-Even a dash of Coconut),and of course Ice Cubes. I like this smoothie cause it's a non-dairy 1 that my son can drink. Of course there's plenty of other smoothies you can make with milk/yogurt,fruits,even peanut butter! -We've tried a peanut butter/banana smoothie with milk,peanut butter, and banana's-Yum!

Summer is perfect for a nice picnic outside and you can make some sun tea or lemonade too!

And last but not least-Dessert!

A summer-time favorite of icecream or popsicles! Again you can get creative and make your own! We bought a popsicle maker/container from the dollar store and the kids have fun experimenting with different juices-etc.
So don't be afraid to make your own summer food and drink experiments. And feel free to share your own special recipe's! Have Fun!

I had forgotten about the sun tea. We used to make it a lot when we lived in Savannah, GA. Now, from Las Vegas it should take....oh, about 5 minutes in the sun to be ready. Thanks for the fun summer post!

Great post! Jacob and I always make smoothies and home made popsicles... and sun tea is one of my favorites!

A little tip of my own: Did you know that if you sneak a little fresh spinach into a fruit smoothie, you can't taste it AT ALL (weird I know, but it's true), and it adds a healthy little kick! Sure, it'll change the color just a little, but Jacob never knows the difference! ;)
