Do your kids love spending time outside during the summer? The warm weather might call their names, but it doesn’t take long for them to get too hot. You can remedy that this year by whipping up these five cool treats. Check out these recipes so your kids can keep the fun going without getting overheated.

1.      Banana Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Bites

This recipe for Banana Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Bites is a cinch to make, but the taste is out of this world. You only need bananas and mini chocolate chips to make it, so it’ll be ready in no time. Be sure to make more than the kids need so you can have some, too. Once you see the finished product, it’ll be too hard to pass up.

2.      Cotton Candy Frozen Yogurt

What kid doesn’t like cotton candy? It’s a popular treat but too sticky for that summer sun. Fortunately, that’s not the case with this Cotton Candy Frozen Yogurt recipe. Instead of real cotton candy, you’ll use cotton candy flavoring with all the taste without the stickiness. It goes great with the Greek yogurt base, so expect your kids to leave rave reviews.

3.      Frozen S’more Sandwiches

S’mores aren’t just for cold nights around the fire. They can also cool you off when you make Frozen S’more Sandwiches. These are just like regular s’mores, only a lot cooler. Don’t eat them when they’re too cool, or the pudding will be hard. Thus, take them out of the freezer about 15 minutes before serving so the pudding will soften, making them easier to eat. And even though they’ll warm up a bit, they’ll still be a cool treat.

4.      Easy Pureed Fruit Pops

Popsicles are staples of summer, but you don’t have to go with the same old ones this year. Instead, try these Easy Pureed Fruit Pops for a new way to enjoy the classic treat. While the recipe calls for pureed kiwis, you can choose any fruit of your liking. Thus, consider mixing it up through summer so you can enjoy all the best seasonal flavors.

5.      Ice Cream Tacos

While popsicles are standard summer treats, the same isn’t true for tacos. That’ll change when you make these Ice Cream Tacos, though. This recipe uses frozen waffles instead of tortillas for the shell, maintaining the crunch while providing some sweetness. Oh, and the waffles pair perfectly with the ice cream, so get ready for this recipe to be a hit.

It’s going to be a tasty summer when you make these recipes. It will also be a happy one since you’ll spend the seasons fielding compliments about your treat-making skills from your kiddos.
