13 Summer Recipes for your 2013 Summer

Despite the somewhat dreary weather where I live, summer is most definitely around the corner.  Can you believe it's already the last week of May?  Time has been really flying lately!

With that being said, summer still can't come soon enough.  I miss sunshine, swimming, and, of course, the food.  I can't wait until summer produce hits the farmers markets, and I'll be enjoying my fair share of ice cream too.

How about some recipes to get you into the summer mood?

Watermelon Slushie
Summer = Watermelon.  Lots and lots of watermelon.  If you ever find yourself with more than you know what to do with, Watermelon Slushies are always a good idea.  Or maybe a refreshing Watermelon Salad.  Both are good choices.

Zucchini Boats
When dinner rolls around, Zucchini Boats are always a good idea.  For maxium enjoyment, eat them outside.  Or make a crazy pizza.  One with peaches and no tomato sauce.  Trust me, it's crazy good.

Peach, Ricotta, and Arugula Pizza with Balsamic
Which brings me to the topic of peaches.  I stockpile them in the summer.  Before ther season ends, you must grill them.  Then make salad.  Or you could go the opposite route and make dessert (that's healthy enough for breakfast). Peaches and cream anyone?  I've also got a pretty tasty recipe for Peach Frozen Yogurt.  Ya know, just so you know.

Peach Frozen Yogurt
Oh, and I almost forgot.  What's better than iced tea on a hot day?  Iced tea sorbet.  Of the Ginger Peach variety, to be exact.  And the last frozen recipe I'm sharing is a Protein Vanilla Milkshake.  It's super easy and you can eat it for breakfast!

Protein Vanilla Milkshake
Because pretty much no post is complete without chocolate, I feel it's my duty to include some no bake treats.  Chocolate Cookie Dough, No Bake Chocolate Bites, Chocolate Banana Cups, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Crispy Bites.  Make them all.

Chocolate Banana Cups

So there you go.  Eat at least some of this food, and you're well on your way to the best summer of you life.  Have a great Memorial Day everyone.  Eat some good food for me!
