Summer treats used to be so simple - cold drinks and frosty ice pops are the delicacies of childhood.
Suddenly though, there’s been a rush to make food well, fancier than it once was. Summer food is no longer about perfecting the classics, but about making them as exotic as possible.
As the song goes, "you think you fancy, huh?" Well if so, here are some of our favorite fancified versions of typical summer goodies:
1. DIY Fruit Pops are the New Popsicles
With all the summer gatherings and picnics that will take place all summer long, we are still thinking "Slim & Trim" on the recipes!
This is guacamole taken to the next (nutritional) level, punched up with extra protein and fiber from edamame, otherwise known as the "gorge green soybean."
It is significantly less fat than traditional guacamole and adds heart-healthy soy protein. Served with raw vegetables or alongside baked chili lime pita chips..... we're thinking..... Yum!
Summer means picnics... and lots of chips and dip. Your favorite Super Bowl bean and sour cream dip is just too heavy for this time of year, so let's get light!
This healthy salsa recipe incorporates the essential flavors of Mexican cuisine. We've got onion and jalapeno for spice, tempered by the fruity lightness of mangoes, melon, and pineapple. It's sweet and savory fruit salad - perfect for your next party!
Great with chips or as a garnish for a piece of grilled chicken or fish. Or just pair it with a margarita for Mommy and bring it outside by the pool! Yum!
What says SUMMER more than an avocado? And what says YUM more than guacamole!!!
So what could be better than sharing my favorite guacamole recipe? It's the best one you'll ever have. I promise!
Super easy. Super tasty. Tried and true, your friends will be raving about this delicious dip!
