This summer has been absolutely bananas for heat. I am usually a steadfast pool-only-swimmer. If we’re at one of the great lakes, I’ll take a swim in those sand-bottom-no-seaweed waters. But usually, if I can’t see the bottom, I don’t like to get in. This past heat wave was so crazy at the cottage that even I jumped off the dock (praying my feet didn’t touch weeds of course).
This recipe is one to help beat the heat. The slushy goodness can be made both with or without rum. If you blend up a pitcher, make it without, then add the rum to the adult glasses so the tiny toads can cool off with a virgin version.
Just blend ingredients with ice, top up with a splash of bubbly water, and enjoy!
Stay cool, friends.

This ridiculously easy recipe was sent to me by a Sweet Cheat customer one evening a few months ago. Life with 4 tiny toads happened and I never got a chance to actually try it. Well I finally have, and holy moly!! It’s incredible!
It’s a simple matter of whipping some heavy cream with Sweet Cheat Hot Chocolate and a splash of vanilla and cold coffee. Wow is it good!
Usually I’m able to make and photograph recipes pretty quickly and then let the toads eat the results. Well this time I had trouble. I had little thieves sneaking their fingers into the bowl before I could even get it plated!
We used this as a dip for fruit, but I’m not going to lie, eating it straight off a spoon is a totally viable option for consuming it!
Sweet Cheat Chocolate Fluff
One of my favourite times of year in Ontario is summer. We are fortunate enough to grow some of the best strawberries in the world here. I have cherished memories of going strawberry picking with my grandparents and eating more warm strawberries in the field than I put into the basket. Each year I take my children for the same experience.
This easy recipe is a great accompaniment for those fresh berries. I have watched my children happily eat quarts of plain berries faster than I can hull them, but adding a bit of Sweet Cheat vanilla whipped cream turns them into a special dessert.
This recipe is simply a matter of whipping some cream with Sweet Cheat Spoonable Monk Fruit and vanilla.
