simple summer fruit recipes to please the entire family during the school holidays!
Welcome to #cookblogshare week 30!
Wow, I can’t believe we are nearing the end of July already! Based in the North-East of Scotland our children are already on the 3rd week of their summer holidays. We have been completely spoilt this year with the weather we’ve been having. I’ve been busy keeping things ticking over on the blog. Meanwhile, Lesley, the other half of Lost in Food, is gallivanting around Cornwall. Lesley’s motto for the summer holidays is “have tent, will travel!” I love this because when she returns home, having eaten out a lot, she is full of ideas and bursting at the seams to share them with me. Did I mention I also get some very delicious lunches as she attempts to recreate her foodie highlights?
With this warm weather and school holidays we as a family are out and about much more. We’re not as tied to set dinner times and after school activities. However we are still looking for treats to give the family, without overloading them on sugar and processed foods. This roundup allows for just that. Refreshing, fruity and healthy recipes that will please even the fussiest of eaters.
Simple recipes featuring fruit as the hero!
First up Jo from Jo’s Kitchen Larder shares her Strawberry & Banana Yogurt Ice Lollies. Bursting with loads of fresh fruit and easy to make vegan and dairy free if necessary. You will please the entire family.
Next up, Corina of Searching for Spice keeps us cool with another take an ice creation. Her Homemade Coconut & Pineapple Ice Lollies look really refreshing. Not to mention being vegan and dairy free as well. Is it too much to say they would make the base of a delicious G&T?
Want to get the family off to a great start in the morning? Then Monika of Everyday Healthy Recipes has you covered with her healthy Cherry Cocoa Overnight Oats. A perfect recipe for the cherry season. However, equally great with any other stone fruit. Ideal if family members want to add their own twist and get creative in the kitchen.
Finally, not forgetting that the weekend is just around the corner, we can congratulate ourselves for keeping the kids busy, entertained and well fed during the week! This next one will be appreciated by Mums (and Dads!) up and down the country when Friday rolls around to greet us! Thanks to Angie at Fiesta Friday for sharing her Matcha Mojito, let the weekend begin!
Looking for another easy yet satisfying fruit recipe then check out our Quick Peach & Raspberry Mille Feuille. Prepared ahead of time and assembled as dessert time approaches. Keeping the time in the kitchen to a minimum yet the taste-buds happy.
Thank you to everyone who shared their recipe with us last week.
