by | Jul 27, 2018 | RV Recipes | 0 comments

Even with this summer heat, we know nothing can come between you and your camping trips! And after a long day of hiking, biking or swimming in a lake, nothing sounds better than an ice-cold treat to cool you down. Sometimes, though, popsicles and icy treats are loaded with sugar or artificial sweeteners. Here are a few recipes that are healthy and easy to make so you can spend time making camping memories with your family. 

Frozen Blueberry Bites 

Store some of these blueberry bites in your cooler for a healthy and refreshing camping treat! Click here for Frozen Blueberry Bites Recipe.

Some of us need our coffee to keep us pleasant, and this Vanilla Almond Iced Coffee is the perfect way to get your caffeine fix for the day ahead. And if you’re camping with limited cool air, this will cool you right down. Click here for Vanilla Almond Iced Coffee Recipe.
