Immediately upon our return from Germany, we hosted a play date. I’ve been wanting get back to healthy eating habits since the trip so I wanted to offer something else than ice cream.
First I stole the idea of a “watermelone pizza”, from my second cousin. Simple and delicious, easy for small children help making and a great hit in the heat. My second cousin and her partner have a cool little crafts business that you can find here (in Finnish only).
Cooking with Wall Flower came to rescue as well with her great post on 10 Desserts Perfect for Summer. I made the #4 Frozen Yoghurt with Blueberries too, and kids were happy to get “ice cream”. At home we have also dipped strawberries in yoghurt (#3) and enjoyed popsicles (#9). Anyway, it seems a little twist in ordinary healthy snacks are always helpful too, like serving orange as boats and bananas as pirates.
Can you recommend something else that is delicious, easy and refreshing on a hot summer day?
