Summer Time Treats

Watermelon Balls!

I realized with Cakes that no matter how yummy it actually is, if it doesn’t look yummy she’s just not that into it.  So I’m always looking for ways to reinvent and reintroduce foods to her and letting her help me out as much as possible in preparing it since she likes to cook with me.

This isn’t really a recipe per say just a new fun way for her to eat fruit which she absolutely loves.  A plus is that it was something she could help me make which quickly turned into her taking over and being able to do it all by herself.  Proud mommy moment!

All you need is some watermelon and a small scooper and go to town.  What a fun summer time treat.

Summer Time Treats

It’s hot and humid and looking like it’s going to rain any minute, so Cakes and I are spending the day under the a/c at home cooling out.  What I love most about being a mom to a 4 year old is that a chill day at home always turns out to be anything but chill.  (insert sarcasm).  Since she loves to help me cook I thought instead of giving her a regular messy bowl of ice cream that’ll be dripping down her face, hands and arms let’s have a treat that’s fun to make, adds some fruit and won’t need a clean up team.  Vanilla ice cream and strawberry hearts.
All you need is ice cream of your choice, fruit of your choice, a silicone ice tray, a bowl and a spoon:

1. Set 2 or 3 scoops of ice cream aside until it’s soft enough to mix.

2.Dice fruit (I used 4 small-medium strawberries).

3. Mix the fruit into the ice cream (if your mix gets a little soupy it’s totally fine).

4. Once the fruit and ice cream are mixed well, place in your silicone ice tray.
