During the summer when the kids are home from school I often feel like a short order cook! I am always trying to brainstorm new and healthy snacks they can make on their own. After all, moms need a summer vacation too!
This summer, Challenge introduced some new “flavor packed” cream cheese options. Their Strawberry Cream Cheese is full of fresh strawberries and of course that rich and creamy texture that comes from using real ingredients. As a mother, I love that this cream cheese contains 20% less sugar than the other brands, and is made with milk from cows that are not treated with growth hormones. I also appreciate that they maintain their values and use natural color from beets to give this cream cheese its beautiful color.
My daughter Alivia came up with the idea of adding this new flavor packed cream cheese to Greek yogurt along with blueberries and raspberries to create the ultimate cream pop! Her idea was spot on, and they are indeed the best frozen treat we have ever made! They are healthy, creamy and refreshing on a hot summer’s day. The best part is she and her friends can make them all by themselves giving me a break. Summer is getting a bit easier and healthier at our house! Click here for the complete recipe!
