I’ve said time and time again how much I love to cook and bake. But let me tell you, when the hustle and bustle of a long weekend rolls around, putting on a big spread is the farthest thing from my mind. I’m sure you’re the same, it’s why people BBQ and rip open a salad conveniently packaged up in a bag with the dressing and fixings inside. We want to spend Canada Day enjoying time with family and friends, sipping on a cold one, and watching the kiddos splash around. Of course there are loads of desserts to compliment a laid back summer party, but I’ve just discovered a few Easy Summer Sweets to Help Celebrate Canada 150 that you must give a try!
Tell me if you showed up to a Canada Day party with this guy, your friends wouldn’t be floored at your handy work…psssst, jokes on them! This Pavlova Meringue Nest from the PC Insiders Collection is a best kept secret! Just open the box, add a generous dollop of flavored greek yogurt or whip cream and garnish with fresh fruit and a sprinkle of coconut. A 10 second dessert, that looks like 10 hours.
Presidents Choice has a whole array of delicious Easy Summer Sweets that are definite crowd pleasers. Like the PC® Lemon Raspberry Naturally Flavoured Cheesecake Truffles, I couldn’t stay out of these little morsels, melt in your mouth delish! There is also an out of this world Mango Coconut Milk Ice Cream that is so fresh and flavorful you won’t be able to stay out of the tub, and may I mention its dairy free for those of you with a sensitive tummy!
There are also lots of tasty treats with a Canadian flare, like Maple Fudge, and Maple Flavored marshmallows! I know what you’re thinking… maple s’mores!! Yep, tried that!
If it’s something refreshing to sip you’re looking for the the PC Organics Watermelon Lemonade is sure to hit the spot. Pair it with a slice a fresh fruit to make a kid friendly cocktail!
All these Easy Summer Sweets are going to free up lots of extra time you’d otherwise be spending fussing in the hot kitchen!
Have you tried any of the sweets of summer from the PC Insiders Collection? We certainly have our favourites, what are yours?
Wishing you all a fantastic Canada 150 holiday weekend, cheers!!
