Cool Summer Treats for Your Enjoyment!!!

Here are a couple sweet cool treat recipes for you summer days. They can be made ahead of time and frozen to enjoy later. If you have done fruit smoothie’s before you know almost anything tastes wonderful in them. If you don’t have exactly what the recipe calls for get creative. Use what ever you have in your fridge and freezer.

I freeze very ripe bananas out of their peels in a Ziploc bag. Then I use them for fruit shakes. I also purchase berries and other fruit when they are on sale and put them straight into the freezer. Then they are available for this!!! Already frozen frozen fruit items make your shake especially frosty and yummy!!!
