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%.

Healthy and Delicious Dried Fruit

Dried fruit is a healthy way to curb that sweet tooth. Get the 4-1-1 on drying fruit from Housing A Forest! The store bought version of this snack is pretty spendy and you don’t get much bang for your buck. If bananas only cost $1.00 then why do banana chips cost $4.00? Anyone with some fruit and an oven or dehydrator can make their own delicious dried fruit snacks. Such a perfect snack!

Homemade Sour Watermelon Gummies

As as a candy addict, I am always on the search for healthier alternatives. I was lucky enough to find the recipe for homemade watermelon gummies created by Meatified. A natural gelatin sour gummy is a delicious summer treat and they have some health perks too. Gelatin has 18 amino acids, acts as a collagen supplement, and helps with joint health. Definitely an all around win!

Perfect  Peanut Butter

How funny is it that I ran across a tutorial for homemade peanut butter today. I have been craving it! I am a fan of the delicious and creamy… and Averie Cooks has given us the steps for just that. I didn’t know that to make peanut butter you only really need peanuts. Everything else you add is flavoring or preservatives. Oh the things we learn! I am going to grab some honey roasted peanuts and vanilla on my way home and get crackin!
