Take Five Minutes for Mom This Summer

This post has been sponsored by Betty Crocker. I received product and compensation, but all opinions are my own.

Summer is one of my favorite times as a mom. Throughout most of the year, our days are filled with school, sports, clubs and more. We tend to have every minute scheduled, every day planned, every weekend packed.

But in the summer, we slow down. My son doesn’t play sports. We go to the pool when we feel like it. We play in the backyard. And most importantly, we just spend time together.

Sounds wonderful, right? And most of the time it is.

But if I’m being honest, there are days when I am *so* ready for school to start. There are days I miss a quiet house. There are days I just want to have time to myself.

So, this summer, I am taking five minutes for mom each day. Just five minutes. Five minutes where I can stop, reset and center myself.

And, of course, enjoy a sweet treat.

Right now, my favorite is the Betty Crocker Chilled Treats French Vanilla Mousse with Salted Caramel Drizzle. This super yummy treat is perfectly portioned for one.  

Chilled Treats make it easy to enjoy a sophisticated, light mousse-treat for an anytime indulgence that’s just as simple as it is delicious.

You make it in the fridge so it’s perfect for a hot summer day, and the best part is that it is ready in just about five minutes. Plus, there’s no mess to clean up. Just mix, chill and top it.

This is one of the easiest desserts I’ve ever made, and one of the most decadent. It is so much better than I could have imagined. The mousse is thick and creamy. And the topping adds a little extra punch to kick up the flavor.

To make it, you just need an 8-10 oz cup or glass, 1/2 cup of milk, and a packet in the flavor variety of your choice. Simply empty in the mix into the cup, add milk, chill, top and enjoy!

Even the flavors scream summertime decadence:

  • Key Lime Mousse with Lime Drizzle
  • French Vanilla Mousse with Salted Caramel Drizzle
  • Chocolate Mousse with Chocolate Ganache
  • Lemon Mousse with Lemon Drizzle

The French Vanilla Mousse with Salted Caramel Drizzle is my favorite, but I am so glad that there are so many yummy ones to choose from!

Doesn’t this just look like the perfect summer day? Or, well, the perfect summer five minutes.

I think I might see how long I can sit here before I get dragged to the swing set again.
