Delicious and Easy to Make Cool Treats Every Kid Will Love

Vacation is a time filled with sunshine, sand and water. Of course, if you have kids, it also means an endless amount of food and snacks. It seems like kids need to eat constantly, and for parents, finding delicious and healthy snacks can be a challenge (and a drain on the wallet). This week we have some great cool treats you can make right in the comfort of your Topsail Island vacation rental. Let's get started!

3-Ingredient Strawberry Lemonade Fro-Yo

This recipe is so simple we are a little embarrassed we didn't think of it ourselves. The only thing you will need to make this recipe is a blender, which many of our Topsail Island vacation homes will have. Simply add the strawberries, lemon and yogurt in the blender and then freeze the mixture. For more details check out the full recipe at Love and Zest.

Coconut Kiwi Popsicles 

Kiwi is a refreshing and easy to find fruit that kids usually fall in love with. These little treasures are packed with flavor and vitamins. When you pair coconut with the kiwi something magical happens. Plus, who doesn't love a popsicle. You can make a load of these for the kids and have them to snack on all week long. Head over to the Eat the Gains site for all the details. 

Watermelon Lime Sorbet 

There are few things as synonymous with summer as fresh watermelon, especially here in North Carolina. This recipe combines the tart sweetness of limes with the refreshing taste of watermelon, all in a frozen treat that anyone can make with just a few quick steps.
