- Strawberry cheesecake in a jar
It’s a huge hit at potluck dinners as well as kids’ birthday parties. Cheesecake in a pot is a great way to eat on the grass without it getting messy. You can use graham crackers for the base or even use a crumbled shortbread crust to ensure you have a buttery, melt-in-your-mouth base. The other ingredients you will need are cream cheese, a little lemon juice, whipping cream and sugar. Don’t forget your main ingredient – strawberries, but feel free to swap it out for raspberries if they’re in season!
- Dynabites Smoked Cheese
When dining out, you can forget all the rules and start with dessert. But you’d still crave a savory appetizer between courses to make sure you don’t get overwhelmed by the sweetness. These smoked cheese dynabites are ideal because they are made with lots of lettuce, boiled eggs, smoked cheese and a hint of mayonnaise. Other ingredients that spice up this wrap are ham, garlic and cherry tomatoes. It works like a hearty salad and adds an element of freshness to your meal.
- Melted Apple Biscotti
The highlight of this recipe is that it requires very few ingredients like a few apples, an egg and some dough or flour. The resulting Biscotti will melt in your mouth and release the flavors of a quintessential apple pie.
- Homemade strawberries and Frappuccino cream and Mocha Frappuccino
No meal out is ever complete without plenty of drinks when the summer sun threatens to dehydrate you. So ditch the lemonade or regular ginger ale for these exotic Frappuccino recipes you can make from scratch. The best part is that the Strawberry and Cream Frappuccino is made from fresh ingredients rather than store-bought saccharin syrups. Say no to artificial flavors and embrace green tea and mocha frappuccinos with this recipe.
