Cool Snacks for a Hot Summer
by Deborah Shelton

Mouse Popsicles

It’s not what you’re thinking! The name refers to the size of the popsicle-not the contents. Wash a bowl of seedless grapes, and then set the grapes in the freezer for about an hour. Poke colored toothpicks into the grapes to serve.

Juice Pops

Summer isn’t complete without homemade juice popsicles. Simply fill a popsicle mold or an ice tray with your favorite fruit juice. Cover the ice tray with clear plastic wrap and poke a toothpick through the plastic into each square. Place the tray into the freezer until the popsicles are frozen solid.

Frozen Monkey Treats

Here is a healthy snack that your kids will go bananas for! Peel a banana and cut it in half. Insert popsicle sticks into the cut ends. Dip the bananas into yogurt or melted chocolate, and then roll the bananas in chopped nuts, crushed cereal, or coconut shavings. Place the bananas on a small waxed paper-lined baking sheet and set the sheet into the freezer for an hour or so. Fun to make and even more fun to eat!

Fruit Fizzy

Don’t plan your summer party without this refreshing drink. Pour one can of Sprite (it doesn’t have caffeine) into a blender, along with small ice cubes. Add several large strawberries, a handful of blueberries, or other favorite fruit to the mix. Blend the mixture until it has the texture of a slush. Pour into a glass and garnish with a cherry on top.

Fruit Smoothie
By Wendy Kennedy

2 cups orange juice
1/3 cup strawberry yogurt
2 medium bananas, cut up
1/2 cup blueberries.

Put all ingredients in a blender, blend & enjoy!

Try different kinds of juice, yogurt & fruit. If you use frozen fruit it will be colder (we freeze bananas to use) or you can add an ice cube or 2 (some people prefer it a little thinned down). It’s delicious & good for you.
