Holly Waterfall at HappyFoodHealthyLife.comHey there Bakerette readers! I’m so fortunate that Jen liked me well enough to invite me back to share another awesome recipe with you for the month of June. JUNE! Can you believe we’re here already?! School’s out for most kids. My son has been doing nothing but playing outside nonstop since the moment the last school bell rang last week. Days are warm. Evenings are long. And I don’t know about you, but I want nothing but to eat deliciously light and cool foods that will stop my blood from boiling.

I don’t do well with the heat. I hate it. I’m uncomfortable. And I basically just stay inside in front of the a/c until the thermometer drops below 80 degrees. Any higher than that, and I just can’t do it.

Well, there is one exception, and that’s if I happen to have a nice cool treat. Kind of like the one I’ve decided to share with you this month. I told you last month about my obsession with coconut, when I brought you my Almond Joy Gooey Rolls. I didn’t necessarily mean to bring you something coconutty again, but I kind of can’t help it. In my world, most delicious treats include coconut.

One of my favorite cocktails is a pina colada, and because I’d much rather be able to share my sweet treats with my kiddo, I had to take those delightful pina colada flavors, and create something a little more family-friendly. A pina colada frozen yogurt recipe: Small pieces of pineapple. Coconut extract and flakes of coconut. Macadamia nuts for some crunch and a bit of an island feel. All mixed in with some low fat yogurt (so we aren’t freaking out about going to the pool later this the afternoon) and churned into a frozen treat. That is the kind of treat that gets me on board with summer! I hope it gets you in the mood as well!
