Things to do in SUMMER!! 💜 💜 💜
Hey!! 💜 The summer began and I decided to show you some fun things to do in summer (+recipes). So if you are bored, you can just try some of them. You can also save them on your computer, laptop or phone so you can see them. Hope you like it! 😊
Cereal and Milk Popsicles
- 3 Cups Cornflakes
- 2 Cups milk
- 1 Cup cream
- 1/4 Cup sweetened condensed milk
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 Cup fruit loops
- Turn the oven to 300 degrees. Spread the cornflakes onto a baking sheet and bake in the oven for about 12 minutes. The cereal will be toasted and fragrant. Remove and let cool for a few minutes.
- In a bowl, combine the cornflakes, milk and cream. Stir slightly and let steep for 20 minutes.
- Strain out the cornflakes with a fine sieve. Discard the cornflakes (or eat them, but it’s weird). In a glass measuring cup combine the liquid with sweetened condensed milk, brown sugar, and salt. Heat for 1 minute and stir until sugar is dissolved. Cool in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
- Get out the Zoku mold and put about 10 fruit loops at the bottom of each popsicle mold. Put the popsicle stick in, crushing the fruit loops slightly as you make sure it is firmly in the mold. Pour in some of the cereal milk, add some more fruit loops, and then fill up with more cereal milk. Stuff a couple more fruit loops at the top. The fruit loops will probably get a bit crushed in some spots, but that’s ok.
- Repeat and let freeze for about 5-7 minutes. Remove the popsicles and eat immediately.
Pudding Cupcakes (no baking)
1. Chocolate Pudding (4 containers makes about 12 cuppycakes. 8 makes 24)
2. Whipped cream
3. Optional: Chocolate powder, hot chocolate or chopped chocolate pieces (to use as dressing on top)
4. Mini “jelloshot” paper cups
Make your dessert in a tiny cup and dress it up to look delicious. Put about four spoonfuls of chocolate pudding into mini paper cups, top off with a swirl of whipped cream and chocolate dust or your decoration of choice. You can put whatever you want. 🙂
- 5 cups seedless watermelon pulp
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1 pint lime sherbet, softened
- Puree watermelon and sugar in batches in your blender or food processor until smooth and strain into a medium bowl. Cover and freeze until puree is slightly slushy, but not quite solid, about 2 to 3 hours. Remove from freezer, stir well and add in chocolate chips.
- Place twelve 5-ounce disposable cups in a shallow baking pan and spoon watermelon puree into cups, leaving about a 1/2 inch left from the rim. Place pan in freezer for 2 hours, or until puree is solid, but not rock hard.
- Allow lime sherbet to soften a bit, then spread over top of each portion of watermelon puree so that it comes up to the edge of the cup. Smooth sherbet with the back of a spoon and cover each cup with plastic wrap. Cut a small slit in the center of each cup and insert a popsicle stick into each pop so that it almost reaches the bottom of the cups. Freeze overnight (or until solid) and can be frozen for up to two days.
- Allow pops to sit at room temperature for about a minute, then gently pull out from the cups. Serve and enjoy! 😉
Strawberry Mint Ice Cream
- 2 (14.5oz) cans full fat coconut milk
- ⅓ cup honey
- ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
- ½ vanilla bean
- 1 cup chopped strawberries
- 1 tablespoon mint, minced
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Roast chopped strawberries on baking sheet for 10 minutes.
- Remove from oven, spread out on a cutting board and chop strawberries again into smaller pieces.
- Place cutting board with strawberries in the refrigerator to cool.
- Combine coconut milk, honey, vanilla extract, vanilla bean and mint in a large bowl. Whisk together until well combined.
- Pour mixture into ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer’s directions (mine churned for 20 minutes)
- Remove strawberries from refrigerator and add to ice cream maker during the last 2 minutes of churning.
- Transfer ice cream to a freezer safe bowl and freeze for 2 hours to harden.
A night in the backyard
If you live in a house, you can organize a ”night in your backyard”. Invite all your friends and have fun together. You can make a camp and put some tents. You can also watch a fim and play different games like ”Guess the film” or ”Simon Says”. 🙂 You can also make some friendship bracelets. Tell a scary story to scare your buddies or take some photos and make a collage to remember this great night.
Hope you enjoyed the summer ideas! See ya! ❤
