On hot summer days, nothing hits the spot like a delicious lineup of icy drinks and snacks to keep yourself cool. These refreshing and creamy Coconut Lime Ice Pops by my husband are the perfect treat to beat the heat! The ingredients take only moments to whisk together.
(These pops are not overly sweet as a personal preference, but could be very easily adjusted to have more sweetness if desired!)
Falling in between a lighter milkshake and a decadent smoothie, this sweet treat only requires 4 ingredients and makes for such a satisfying snack on a hot summer day! It’s thick and creamy while frozen and icy at the same time, all while packing a nutritional punch with lots of vitamins, protein, and fiber. (For additional creaminess, feel free to substitute a higher fat greek yogurt if that’s your preference!)
Perfect for cozy mornings, an afternoon pick-me-up, or a post-dinner treat, these Earl Grey lattes only require 4 ingredients and take a few short minutes to make! Simple and delicious, my husband is the expert when it comes to whipping these up in our house!
A few notes:
We personally used decaf so that we could enjoy them later in the evening, but traditional caffeinated tea will work wonderfully as well!
The quantities and sweetness are fully in your control depending on how you prefer your tea.
Lastly, if you don’t have any tools on hand to froth the milk, it is still very enjoyable when skipping this step!
This 4 ingredient smoothie is one of my go-tos for that post-workout time of day! I love how filling, creamy, and satisfying it is, all while packing a big nutrition punch! I’ve tried lots of variations including using different yogurt varieties as well as adding in extra Sunbutter when I’m looking for something more filling, so do a taste test and adjust the ratios to your preferences!
2 Cups Frozen Strawberries
3/4 – 1 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt (nonfat or full fat both work)
1/2 Cup Apple Juice
2 Tablespoons Sunbutter (or more if you want more of the “nut butter” taste!)
Blend half of the frozen strawberries, the yogurt, and the apple juice in a blender
Once blended, add in the Sunbutter and second half of the strawberries and blend again
This fruity peanut butter combination is perfect on a hot summer day as a snack, light meal, or post-workout recovery treat! It’s nice and creamy as well as high in protein, fiber, and lots of colorful fruit. Nutritious and delicious!
This combination is a recent favorite of mine when it comes to needing a quick and easy yet nutrient-dense breakfast or afternoon snack! The ratios can be adjusted to your liking, but think overnight oats meets granola bowl!
This 4-ingredient snack couldn’t be easier to make! Keeping a stash of a variety of frozen fruit in the freezer is so helpful when creating smoothies on a whim. I love combining handfuls of it with some sunflower seed butter and water which beautifully blends into a sweet, creamy, and refreshing snack that just so happens to be vegan and gluten free!
This is a snack-size portion, but if you were looking for more of a meal you could easily double the measurements. I love drinking this as a side with a sandwich at lunch, or as a mid-afternoon bite. It’s one of my favorite ways to add a couple extra servings of fruit into my day!
