Frozen Sweet Tarts

We are not accustomed to hot and humid weather in Wisconsin.  Usually we are complaining that it’s too cold, and summer goes by too fast.  Today we had heat indexes of 105 degrees.  It’s so hot no one seems to even want to eat…that is until I made this refreshing treat.

Frozen Sweet Tarts

They are made with 4 ingredients and take 5 minutes to whip together.  Ready?

Ingredients:
Frozen Yogurt (half of a quart…which would be a pint right?)
Frozen Juice (I used pink lemonade) 1 container
Cool Whip 1-8 oz container
Nilla Wafers

Set out the frozen yogurt and frozen juice on the counter until the sides are slightly melted and in the middle is somewhat soft.  Combine the frozen juice and frozen yogurt in a large mixing bowl.  Whip with mixer.  Add container of Cool Whip.  Continue mixing until smooth and creamy. Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners (I used the mini’s to make bite sized treats). Place a Nilla Wafer on the bottom of each cupcake liner, flat side down.

Place a heaping spoonful of the sweet tart mixture on top of the Nilla wafer until the cupcake tin is nearly full.  Place in the freezer for about an hour. *Note you can garnish with fresh fruit, but if you put the fruit on before placing in the freezer the fruit freezes and makes it harder to eat.  I suggest adding fresh fruit just before eating

When they are ready you simply open the freezer, grab a frozen sweet tart and pop it in your mouth.  They are such a refreshing treat.  They somehow revitalized my wilting family.  Just don’t let them sit out of the freezer too long, they will melt which makes it a little trickier to eat 😉

I thought we’d be a little festive and have some red, white, and blue fruit pizza. A sure thing with my family. I hope everyone has a safe a happy holiday weekend. Please remember to take the time to thank a service man or woman. Let us not forget the reason for this holiday!
