8 Recipes Perfect for Summer

I love summer time!  We have such a blast making fun treats and enjoying relaxing days of drinking lemonade and playing in the pool. These recipes are sure to make you want to grab your sunglasses and flip-flops so you can kick back and relax in the shade!  Which one will you make?

Raspberry Lemonade

Raspberry Lemonade

Who doesn’t love raspberry lemonade on a hot day!  I make this every year! It’s a treat for sure and it makes the most amazing popsicles too!  I like to serve it with crushed ice so it gets really chilled. This is a must for backyard parties, BBQ’s and of course any time it’s hot outside! Get the recipe from Deliciously Sprinkled.

Sour Worm Popsicles

They are sweet, they are sour they are little creepy!  The kids loved these for sure.  I’m not much on sour things but the kids LOVED these and ate them up with giggles! Grab the recipe from A Mom’s Take.


Easy Peach Tea

I have made this recipe and it is AMAZING! It is really easy and it is so refreshing. You can also make this with strawberries and that’s a super refreshing way to get kids to eat some fruit.  You can also use a little less sugar if you don’t like a sweet, sweet tea. Just visit Passion for Savings for the recipe.

Strawberry Mango Salsa

Damn Delicious has a great recipe that is full of fruity goodness. Mangos are a nice change for salsa and this is delish on shredded chicken tacos. It also makes one great quesadilla.

I must make this. It just looks too good for words.  I have had a similar one with strawberries and love it.  This would be perfect cooked on a pizza stone on the BBQ. Use fresh peaches for the best flavor!

15 Minute Avocado Caprese Chicken Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette


This is one of my favorite salads. The dressing brings out all the flavors of this dish for sure!  It’s super fast to make it too! This is easily a meal for me during the summer! Just serve it with some crunchy french bread and enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Angel Food Cake

This is an awesome twist on Angel Food cake.  Despite being loaded with chocolate chips this dessert is still light and fluffy!  It was really great with fresh strawberries and a big glass of milk!
