A Tropical Mood

What is the best way to cool off on a hot summer day?
Harper and I made popsicles the other day, and she enjoyed making them so much that I thought I would share the super easy "recipe" with you today.
Super Easy Homemade Popsicles
juice (Harper and I used apple juice, but any type would work.)
small, long containers (We used some of Harper's play cups.)

Pour juice into the containers and stick a spoon in it. Freeze for a couple of hours, or until the popsicle is completely frozen. Run some hot water over the side of the container, making sure none of it touches the frozen juice. Carefully pull the popsicle out and enjoy!

I found out how to make these super cute little envelopes out of a cut out heart. You just turn the heart pointy side up, fold in the sides part of the way, fold the bottom up, and then fold the pointy side down. Below is a thank you card using ribbon and a cut out letter.

Finally, these pancakes will get you into a tropical mood without you having to step outside the door. Topping them off with additional coconut allows you to almost feel the Hawaiian breeze.

PiƱa Colada Pancakes
½ cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup pineapple puree
2 tbsp sugar
1 egg
dash of salt

Blend the shredded coconut into a flour. Whisk all the ingredients together. Preheat a nonstick skillet to medium heat and scoop out a few tablespoons of batter at a time onto it. Once the tops start to look dry, flip the pancakes and cook until both sides are lightly browned. Top with additional coconut.
