Want a healthy recipe for the kiddos this Summer?! These yogurt cups are delicious, healthy and very easy to make. You only need 2 ingredients (yogurt and gelatin). The gelatin is what makes it stick together and freeze in the right consistency. I like making it with vanilla flavored yogurt (you could always use greek yogurt to make it a little healthier) but the vanilla and strawberry are a great flavor combination.

There are not many ingredients you need and you can whip up a batch and then store it (I like using mason jars or glass jars). To use, combine 1 cup mix with 1 cup milk and 1 egg. Enjoy!

If you’re looking for a sweet, refreshing tea recipe then look no further! This Sonic Copycat recipe tastes just like their Peach Iced Tea. It uses a special peach syrup which really helps to flavor and sweeten it. You will just need fresh peaches and sugar to make it. You can use frozen peaches if it’s easier or what you have on hand but I think it tastes so much better when they are fresh. Enjoy!
