Popsicle Recipe

These popsicles are not only great for cooling you down on a hot day, but are a simple and healthy snack solution for any time of day (and any age group). Use a popsicle mold or the paper cup method (described below) and stay cool this summer!

What You’ll Need

  • 2 cups your choice of fresh fruit
    (ex: strawberries, banana, blueberries, mango, kiwi)
  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (omit for less sweet pops)

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend until slightly chunky or smooth.
  2. Fill popsicle mold per its instructions. If using Dixie paper cups, fill about 3/4 of the way with the fruit and yogurt mixture. Place a piece of tinfoil over the top and poke a popsicle stick through.
  3. Place in the freezer for at least 5 hours before serving. Enjoy for up to 4 days.

Five Easy Camping Recipes

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Cooking over a campfire is one of the greatest perks of summertime camping. But before you dig into those s’mores, check out these five simple recipes that don’t require a pan, Dutch oven or stovetop for your next camping trip.

Hearty Breakfast

Prep these breakfast burritos before you leave for your trip, and enjoy with coffee in your campsite every morning.

Foil Packs

Foil packs make for the best camping meals, since you can throw it on the grate over a fire and let it cook. This barbecue chicken recipe is savory and will keep your family and friends well-fed, and goes great with campfire potatoes.

Snacks and Sides

Ember-roasted corn is a must for any camper, but we also like these grilled Brussels sprouts for a substitute or an afternoon snack.

Blueberry-Raspberry Smoothie Recipe

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

This recipe combines blueberries and raspberries for a delicious and filling smoothie you’ll enjoy having every day (if you so choose). We have used frozen raspberries and fresh blueberries, so if you don’t use both fresh and frozen, the ingredients will need to be altered slightly (add about 1/2 cup ice if not using any frozen berries; add about 1/2 cup more milk if using both frozen raspberries and frozen blueberries), and increase the amounts if you’re serving others too. This smoothie is best enjoyed right away, but can be kept in the fridge for about two days for a quick, on the go healthy breakfast or snack.

Blueberry Raspberry Smoothie Recipe

What you’ll need:

  • 3/4 cup 2% or 1% milk
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Directions:

  1. Pour milk and yogurt into a blender, followed by berries and honey.
  2. Blend until smooth and strain if desired.
