It’s time to embrace the pool season, kick back and relax. So, when you mention “party” this introvert wants to jump ship! As much as I love to have fun I do not love getting things ready to “party”. So, I’m loving the idea of just relaxing with the family and adding a few simple treats to make it fun. Grab some fruit, skewers, popsicle sticks and iced coffee and you are all set! Here are 4 simple pool party snack ideas:
WATERMELON POPS AND RAINBOW FRUIT SKEWERS
This genius idea keeps you from actually making popsicles. Lazy girl over here loves them! In order to make watermelon pops just cut your watermelon into triangles, use a sharp knife to make a slit on the end wide enough for a large popsicle stick. Insert the popsicle stick by wiggling it side to side. Ta-da! You have watermelon pops!
For the rainbow fruit skewers simply grab up as many colors of fruits as you can (we were lacking in the green department for these). Do you remember your rainbow color wheel? ROYGBIV, people. I tried to stick with the color scheme for these. Just push them onto skewers and you are good to go. Holla!
SIMPLE BANANA VANILLA YOGURT POPSICLES
I shared these popsicles with you last year. They still remain some of our favorites and they are quite easy to make. If you are in a rush these are a great go-to item. Click here for the full recipe: Simple Banana Vanilla Yogurt Popsicles
INTERNATIONAL DELIGHT ICED COFFEE
It really couldn’t get much easier than this. Just grab a carton of your favorite variety at your local grocery store. My favorite is the Vanilla Iced Coffee. It’s just the right sweetness and exactly the right hassle (none). Just pour it over ice and you are good to go! This brings new meaning to Taking Back 10! Hey, I think I’ll take 20 minutes (shhh.. don’t tell my kids). If you happen to be having a few people over for a party then make sure to get out the coffee press so they think you’ve been slaving (just hide the carton). Or, be like me and drink it all for yourself in your pool all by yourself.
Make sure to keep up with all things hassle free and coffee here:
So, are you inspired to jump in the water? It feels fine… let’s go. I’ll bring the coffee.
