 Cool down with these Pineapple Upside Down Pops made with Greek Yogurt and real fruit!

Hello again Sweet Treats & More readers!  Serene from House of Yumm back with some summer treats for you all.  I remember as a kid my mom would make me frozen yogurt pops.  They were one of my favorite snacks.  Super easy to make and the perfect way to cool down. These Pineapple Upside Down Pops are the same!  Just three simple ingredients and some popsicle molds is all it takes to put these together.  Plus, since they’re made with real fruit and greek yogurt you can feel good about enjoying these!

I made these with maraschino cherries, but you can definitely make them with any kind of cherry that you have on hand, just make sure you cut the pit out and just give the cherries a quick chop.  You can also make these with fresh cut pineapple, or canned pineapple chunks.  Just drain the juice if you’re using canned pineapple.

I love vanilla flavored greek yogurt, and to me, that stuff tastes like cake!  If you’re using a plain greek yogurt just add in some vanilla extract or some butter extract to give it more of a cake flavor.  Plus you can add some agave or honey to sweeten it up if desired.

Smoothies and popsicles. My kids and I plan to live on them this summer. Speaking of which, SCHOOL IS OUT!!!! Preschool, that is :)  Raspberry Pineapple Coconut Smoothie | Sweet Treats and More

This Raspberry Pineapple Cooconut Smoothie is the perfect healthier treat to satisfy any sweet tooth.  It’s made with frozen raspberries, pineapple, and banana, blended up with coconut milk and coconut extract.  It’s the kind of smoothie you dream about sipping while laying on the beach :)

If you need it a little sweeter, you can add a tablespoon or so of your choice of sweetener.  I usually don’t add extra sweetener but if I do I like to use honey or agave.

Avocado Pear Smoothie

Avocado Pear Smoothie | Sweet Treats & More

My good friend Deborah is back at it with another cookbook.  Her new book Best 100 Smoothies for Kids just hit the shelves and it’s a must-have, especially if you’ve got kiddos.  

Her book includes 100 smoothie recipes that kids will love, all free of added sugars and packed with fruits, vegetables and flavor! Knowing Deb has three little kids of her own I knew I could trust these to be kid approved.

This Avocado Pear Smoothie is an ideal smoothie for lunch for kids. I’ve got picky eaters and they won’t go near an avocado, so I was excited to sneak it in their lunch with this smoothie. 

My five year old is obsessed with pears so he gulped his smoothie down in minutes and wanted more! With summer upon us, I’m smoothies for breakfast and lunch are a great idea.

Lemon Crumble Bars

Lemon Crumble Bars

Hello Sweets Treats & More readers!  Serene from House of Yumm here.  And I’ve got the perfect citrus dessert for you all today!  These Lemon Crumble Bars are probably one of the easiest desserts to make.  A buttery crust topped with creamy, homemade lemon curd, topped with even more buttery crumbles.  What could be better? 

Lemon Crumble Bars

The recipe for the lemon curd can be found on my website over at House of Yumm by clicking here.  Best part?  If needed, this recipe could be made even easier by using store bought lemon pie filling. I have a wonderful addiction to all things citrus, and with it being lemon season I find that I keep buying more and more lemons and needing to find something to do with them.  And making lemon curd is one of my favorite things.  I could just sit and eat that stuff with a spoon.  In all seriousness though, it’s so much better sandwiched into these lemon crumble bars.

  2. 1/2 cup sugar
  3. 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  4. 1 and 1/2 cup flour

  5. Add the cup of lemon curd on top of the crust, and sprinkle the top with the remaining crumble mixture.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for approximately 15-20 minutes. Place into the refrigerator for approximately 1 hour to further set the bars prior to cutting and serving.
  7. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container until ready to serve. Enjoy!
