Ahhh, the seasons! I don’t actually know much about them nowadays since I live in sunny So Cal where it’s pretty much summer all year ‘round. But I remember LOVING them during my Georgetown days! So, let’s hit it since it happens to be the First Day of Spring and buds are a bursting.
New Ways To Experience Shades Of The Season
There’s another world, far, far away from botanicals that also boasts the beautiful colors of spring. That world is breakfast cereals! Trix, Fruit Loops, Fruity Pebbles… just like flowers, they’re awash in delicate hues of pink, orange, green, and yellow! To celebrate the First Day of Spring, we found some cereal-infused recipes that feature the pretty pastel colors of the season.
Milk & Cereal Breakfast Popsicles
How cute are these?! Made of Greek yogurt, strawberry milk, banana and cereal, these festive pops have Kid’s Party written all over them! Katrina, the baker extraordinaire of Katrina’s Kitchen, features her recipe on Pinterest. #colorsofspring
Ice Cream Sandwiches Dipped In Cereal
Some genius organization called Spoon University goes around the country eating ice cream to create a yearly list of the best places to eat ice cream! So, these folks pretty much have the best job in the world! From Milk in Los Angeles, California, comes these amazing Macaron Ice Cream Sandwiches. If you’re in LA and never been – GO! If you’re elsewhere, this picture just might be the inspiration to try and make scratch macarons at home! #delish
Fruit Loop Vodka Pops
These icy cold refreshers taste like Fruit Loops because the cereal dissolves IN THE LIQUOR. #ShutTheFrontDoor. It’s like having the best of both kid and adult worlds wrapped into one! Check out the recipe from Amy Barseghian of Best of Life Magazine.
Hope these help you awaken to a year full of possibilities! Happy First Day of Spring!
