Every kid has a sweet tooth. And that’s something that many of us never grow out of! So, embrace the sweetness, and enjoy the last few moments of summer by trying your hand at these simple yet sweetly satisfying recipes.
Each of our suggestions below is a tried and tested refreshing treat – just what everyone craves on a hot summer’s day, so they’re sure to be an instant hit with the grandkids. Plus, they’re each packed full of healthy fruit, so you’ll earn brownie points with their parents too!
Getting creative in the kitchen is a great activity to get the whole family involved in, so why not have a go at knocking up these summer fruit smoothies, rainbow layered ice lollies and fruity fro-yos, then get experimental by switching up the ingredients to create your very own family recipe.
Summer fruit smoothies
Whether you’re keen to kickstart your day the healthy way, or you fancy a little mid-afternoon pick-me-up, these smoothies are a cinch to whizz up and enjoy anytime.
Rainbow layered ice lollies
These brightly coloured ice lollies look good, taste good and because they’re packed full of fruit, they’ll do your body plenty of good too!
This super healthy frozen yoghurt (or “fro-yo” if you want to impress your grandkids with the lingo!) makes the perfect after-dinner treat and it really couldn’t be simpler to make.
