5 HEALTHY SUMMER SNACKS I NEON DOTS

Hey guys! So today I wanted to do something different because lately I have been doing so many Dashin Fashion posts, which you guys seem to like, but you guys also seem to like when I show you guys some fun snacks, so I thought, why not show you guys some fun summer snacks to try out. This is the first time I have ever done a healthy summer snacks post, and to be honest, I am shocked! Haha, anyways, let's just get started!

1) FROYO BERRY BITES



•Cupcake tin and liners
•Granola
•Berries of choice
•Yogurt
•Spoon

Put your liners in the cupcake tin and put some granola 1/2 of the way into the cupcake liners and press that in with the back of your spoon, add some yogurt and fill that to the top, and sprinkle on your berries, and pop that in the freezer for a couple of hours, overnight, or until it is completely frozen. These are great to take on the go to work or a day out with some friends. They are so simple to make and so Snapchat and Instagram worthy!

2) APPLE PEANUT BUTTER SLICES



•Apple corer (I swear this is what it's called and I find this hilarious)
•Apples
•Knife
•Peanut butter
•Nuts or chocolate chips, or any toppings of your choice

Take out the core of your apple and slice your apple into thin... slices... I legit feel so dumb, please do not judge me. Next, spread some peanut butter across each slice and sprinkle on some of your toppings. These are great for on the go and so yummy!

3) CREAMY SPINACH STUFFED MUSHROOMS



•10 medium/5 large portobello mushrooms
•3 tablespoons butter, divided
•2 teaspoons garlic puree (or crushed garlic)
•200g baby spinach leaves
•3-4 tablespoons sour cream (you could also use softened cream cheese)
•4-5 tablespoons parmesan cheese, freshly grated

1) Remove the stems from the mushrooms and wipe any dirt off with a paper towel.
2) Melt one tablespoon of the butter and brush over the mushrooms, inside and out. Set aside.
3) Finely chop the mushrooms stems. In a large pan or skillet, heat the remaining butter, add the chopped mushroom stems and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic puree, stir and cook for another couple of minutes.
4) Add the spinach to the pan. Stir to coat the spinach in the garlicky butter.
5) Once the spinach is wilted and reduced in size, remove from the heat, stir in the sour cream and then set aside.
6) Preheat your griddle pan over a medium/high heat. Spoon the spinach mixture into the center of the mushrooms, sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan and place them on the preheated griddle. Allow to cook for 10-12 minutes - the mushrooms will be done when they are juicy, firm but tender and a glossy, dark brown color.
7) To make sure your cheese is extra golden brown and bubbly, place the pan under a hot grill for the last two minutes of cooking time.
8) Let them rest for a couple of minutes, and serve warm!

4) BLUEBERRY FROZEN YOGURT

3) Once the mixture is well chilled, add to a food processor and pulse until smooth. Add in the yogurt and continue to process until well blended.
4) Freeze in your ice cream maker, according to manufacturers directions. Once the consistency of soft serve, spoon into container with cover and freeze for several hours.
