We've got record temperatures already rocking their way through our summer days, so who wants to turn on their oven and toast up a steamy dessert? Not I.
I also won't mention my dread at this point in the post over the whole bikini season thing. Good gracious, how did summer sneak its way onto the calendar already?
To combat both the rising temperatures and growing hips in these parts of my country, I tossed together a snack. Because nobody should have to live without dessert. Even if it is nearly a hundred degrees outside. Even if I can barely breathe for the tightness of last year’s swimsuit.
This Orange Creamsicle Cups
recipe is a simple take on favorite summertime flavors.
Yoplait Light yogurt offers up an Orange Creamsicle flavor. The yogurt by itself is gorgeously delicious. But, just you wait until you fancy it right on up. A dollop or two of light whipped topping layered in a cup make this recipe about as simple and splendid as anything. You feel as though you've spooned a decadent treat into your boca, without even the least bit of a guilty sweat.
Now that is what summer is all about.
