Homemade Pineapple Frozen Yogurt Smoothie

Smoothies are a nice treat on a hot summer day. (And there have been quite a few of those already.) They are a delicious and healthy fruity snack or dessert. Plus you can make them in seconds! I am in love with this pineapple smoothie from Best Yummy Recipes! It really is so good and good for you! Did you know that 1 cup of fresh pineapple contains 131% of your daily Vitamin C? It also has 2% of your daily Vitamin A, Calcium, and Iron, 2%.

DIY Skittles Vodka

Yikes! This looks amazing! Best Yummy Recipes has a fabulous tutorial (super detailed) on how to make bright and sweet Skittles flavored vodka. I thought it would be more difficult but they have have broken it down so well! It is a little time consuming, Skittles are easy to eat but they take a while to dissolve. What a hit this vodka will be at your next party! Totally worth all the work.

Homemade Italian Cremosas

I dare you to only have one of these tasty treats. Refreshing Italian sodas are a favorite of mine and I love being able to make them whenever I want. For this ‘copycat’ recipe you will need club soda, half and half, Torani syrup, ice, whipping cream, and a cherry for the top. It couldn’t be easier or more delicious. Sweet!
