They can be made dairy free (depending on the yogurt used), and are filled with clean, natural good-for-you ingredients. Perfect for those warm summer days!
Watermelon PopsSummer is almost here and we’re rounding up our favorite warm weather recipes. We leveled up out refreshing watermelon with Memorial Day/Fourth of July vibes. My kids find every food is more fun on a pop stick and I love that their hands stay mess free.
Fireworks Chocolate BarkShort on time but still want a festive treat this Memorial Day or Fourth of July? I got you. Just melt some white chocolate, add in plant based blue and red, and swirl together. We added in some dye free candies and stars to make it extra festive.

Yogurt-Frosted Watermelon “Cake”This sweet + refreshing no-bake watermelon "cake" is a fun new take on a summery dessert. Frosted with a a tangy + sweet yogurt topping and covered in berries, this dessert is pleasing to even the pickiest of eaters (aka my toddler son!). We've served this for birthdays, the Fourth of July, and Memorial Day Weekend. Dress it up with any colored sprinkles you want (we use natural dye-free ones) and make it match the theme you want for any occasion!
Maple Smash Cake with Yogurt FrostingInspired by @yummytoddlerfood, we made this patriotic maple cake with yogurt frosting for my son’s first birthday cake smash, but it was so delicious that I now make it for special occasions and holidays. Made with simple clean ingredients, this cake can be made dairy-free (sub in coconut milk yogurt), and always yields a moist, deliciously sweet cake.
