Yogurt Banana Pops
This is a huge favorite in my home. These Yogurt Banana Pops are fun for the kids to make, and give them something healthy to eat during a hot afternoon!
Chocolate Dipped Fruit Cones
- In the microwave, melt the chocolate in a glass mixing cup for about 1 minute — then 10-second intervals, until melted.
- Dip the top of the cone into the chocolate, and sprinkle with shredded coconut or sprinkles. Let cool.
- Fill the cones with fruit including: strawberries, blueberries, grapes, and mango.
Homemade Blueberry Peach Roll Ups
- 4 medium sized Peaches, chopped
- 1 container fresh Blueberries
- 2 teaspoons Honey
- Preheat oven to 170°.
- Cut the peaches, and put them into a food processor. Add 2 teaspoons honey and mix.
- Pour the puree onto a lined baking sheet.
- In the same food processor, pulse the blueberries until smooth.
- Pour over the baking sheet, filling in the holes of the peach puree.
- Then using a rubber spatula, spread the two together and form a rectangle so you have even corners.
- Put in the oven for 6-8 hours until the roll up is dry (it may take longer depending on thickness of roll up).
- Cool and peel from baking sheet.
- Cut into strips and enjoy!
