Switching up our Everyday Sweet Treats

I have a bit of a sweet tooth. And, if there is one thing my girls have inherited from me, well that would be it.

The problem is that I am lactose intolerant and my girls are lactose sensitive. So, all those dreamy ideas of ice cream on hot summer days?  Well, we tend to revamp those dreamy ideas and create our own equally delicious and refreshing ideas!

It’s quite simple. Instead of giving ice cream as an option, we just add COOL WHIP whipped topping to some of our everyday favorites! {COOL WHIP is lactose-free!}

My girls love berries. And they will gladly eat a bowl full of strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries at any meal. But, to give them an extra special treat, once in a while I will add some COOL WHIP to their bowl of berries. “Oh Mom! This is so great!” They absolutely love it and it’s so easy!

And this face, this is why I love it!

And, with the cold weather {hopefully} behind us, we’ll be turning our hot chocolate into Frozen Hot Chocolate topped with COOL WHIP

Of course, as the picnicking season kicks off, I’m always looking for some fun new ideas. I love that adding COOL WHIP keeps these treat so simple but yet delicious. And I know that they are things that my girls and I can eat and enjoy!

And this one just shouts “Summer Birthday Treat”! Forget the cake and ice cream and go with these cute COOL WHIP Cookie Shooters! Since I don’t have any Summer babies, I guess I’ll just have to take one for the team and make these for my birthday! {It’s in July, just incase you want to start your shopping early!}

  • Her face is priceless! That’s it! I’m getting some cool whip just so I can have that same experience.

  • All I can say, Connie, is if I were pregnant right now, I’d be making all of those desserts! Well, maybe I’d be making Tim make them for me :)
