I love to drown my yogurt pancakes in maple syrup–the soggier the better! I discovered Joseph’s brand all-natural sugar-free maple syrup at Whole Foods a few years ago and it has changed my life. This post is not at all sponsored by the brand but I wanted to share it with you anyway because it’s that good! If you love to drown your breakfast in syrup like I do, you will love Joseph’s brand sugar-free maple syrup!


And I don’t just stop at syrup. I have to add some nuts for crunch and fresh fruit for flavor to my pancakes as well. I topped these with sliced banana and slivered almond along with a side of fresh raspberries.

Cool down this summer with this Sparkling Strawberry Sorbet Rosé Float–strawberry peach sorbet topped with sparkling rosé–on a hot summer day. With this recipe, you won’t have to choose between dessert or wine. A scoop of healthy strawberry-peach sorbet means this drink can be both!

Although I made these last Tuesday at 12 noon, I figured what better day to share this recipe than Sunday-Funday. A day to relax in the pool with the girls and I can’t think of anything else I want in my hand than this Sparkling Strawberry Peach Sorbet Rosé Float. It’s a mouthful to say but trust me…it’s worth it.

This adult beverage is super easy to make with just 5 ingredients. The sorbet is made using just fruit, agave and lemon juice for a lightened up version of the classic dessert and no ice cream maker needed. The sorbet is a simple no-churn recipe.

This is my very first alcoholic beverage recipe on my blog! Yay. It’s mostly because I rarely drink and when I do it’s always wine…like always! I can’t even remember the last time I had something other than a glass of rosé or prosecco (I really enjoy bubbly wine). Anyway, if you are looking for more adult drinks on my site, I’m sorry but I don’t have any. I do however have some other sweets that will cool you off in the summer heat. Check out a couple of my popsicle recipes below.

  • Healthy Granola Yogurt Popsicles – Yogurt, agave, coconut milk, granola and fruit! That’s all you need to make these simple and delicious vegan yogurt popsicles. These popsicles are super versatile and be made to fit most dietary needs and preferences.

  • 2 tsp lemon juice
    for the float
  • 1 bottle sparkling rosé

Instructions

    for the sorbet

    assembly
