Permit me to state the obvious: this summer has been HOT. In fact, we gave up BBQ’ing (gasp! I know!) a few weeks ago, because hubby couldn’t stand to be beside a 400-degree fire pit in 120-degree summer heat.
Alas, now that it looks like most of the stifling humidity is behind us, I decided to search for a few delicious summer recipes that I could share with friends and family. Of course I went straight to Life Made Delicious, and they didn’t disappoint! I found recipes for 10 summer trends that had me drooling at first glance.
Here are a few of my faves:
Banana Fudgy Pops: Who can resist the sweet combination of chocolate and banana? And popsicles just happen to be my sons’ favourite summer treat! These flavourful frozen goodies are made with soy milk – perfect for tackling dairy intolerance and for an extra punch of protein. A bonus: the prep time is only 15 minutes!
Green Garden Fries: At this very moment, I have asparagus and zucchini in my fridge just begging to be consumed. Separately, I was uninspired to eat my greens. But thankfully I came across this recipe for crispy green “fries” made from fresh garden veggies. Oven fried and served with a lemony Greek yogurt dipping sauce, they are the perfect summer side dish!
Mini S’mores Hand Pies: While the name of this recipe leaves much to be desired, I can’t deny that I am loving the combination of crunchy graham crackers, melty chocolate and ooey-gooey marshmallows. There’s even cream cheese listed as an ingredient – how can you go wrong? I have fond memories of stacking S’mores as a child; this seems to be a less messy, yummy alternative!
