A Nutritious Summer Cool-Down
Smoothies are the perfect soothing drink for warm summer days. They also help replenish the vitamins and minerals your body needs, which summertime activities can take away.
Ohhh … that ooey, gooey yummy-licious little treat! I’m talking about a homemade chocolate chip cookie. But not just any chocolate chip cookie. I’m talking about one that holds the perfect balance of sweet and a hint of saltiness.
Americans have been enjoying ice cream served in a cone for more than a century. Whether you like a single or double scoop of your favorite flavor, it seems to always taste better in a cone. That’s why I dug up some history on one of America’s favorite desserts. Here’s the scoop!

Who doesn’t love ice cream? I stock my freezer with the yummy treat because my kids love it. And, because today is National Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day, my kiddos jumped at the chance to come up with their own flavors. Here are a few of their favorites…
I remember two distinct things about summertime when I was a kid: hot Iowa temperatures and gobbling up Bomb Pops®. They were so delicious and the perfect remedy to cool down on those hot summer days. So, in honor of my childhood memory, I’ve created my own version of this summertime staple by using Hiland Dairy Yogurt to wrap up National Dairy Month!
Coming up with the summer fun ice cream pops was pretty easy. I wanted something the kids could just play around making, without much instruction.
Last week, I decided to get creative with a new fun ice cream flavor from Hiland Dairy. The flavor itself, Outlaw Run, was amazing. It didn’t need any improvement, so I decided to spice up the ice cream cones for my kiddos. I made dipped chocolate cones with sprinkles and it was so simple.
This past year, my family decided to plan out some family time each day, typically in the evenings to just rest and relax. It’s usually after dinnertime and almost always includes some type of treat at least a few times a week. This past week we enjoyed some family time with these Mint Chocolate Floats while planning out our next trip to Silver Dollar City.
These vanilla milkshakes are anything but ordinary. Why? Because they’re made with Hiland Dairy’s creamy Old Recipe Real Vanilla Ice Cream and farm-fresh Hiland Dairy Milk, making them an extraordinary summertime treat!
I heard that National Donut Day was coming up (I mean really, can life get any better?). So, I thought I’d make these petite donut muffins with a cinnamon glaze as a sweet treat for my family.
The first day of May reminds us of fresh blooms, warmer weather and cupcakes. You read that correctly … cupcakes! Top these little cakes with scrumptious buttercream frosting and you’ve got a hit on your hands.
I remember picking cherries with my mom as a kid. I also distinctly remember her scrumptious cherry pies. So, in honor of National Cherry Pie Day — and my mom — I simplified the pie-making process. I baked miniature versions of this yummy treat using three ingredients, and topped them off with my homemade whipped cream.

Okay, I admit it. I go crazy for lemon-flavored anything—drinks, sauces, cakes—you name it. If it has that juicy fruit involved, I’m all in. So, when I looked at my calendar and noticed that today is National Lemon Cupcake Day, I headed straight for my kitchen, grabbed my Hiland Dairy ingredients and made my favorite homemade lemon cupcakes. Here are the step-by-step directions so you can give them a try!

Hello, Divas! If you could see me right now, I’m doing my happy dance. Why? Because today is National Candy Day! My mom used to make blue ribbon winning fudge, so I’m using today as an excuse to pay homage to her succulent treat. Back in the day, she used only the freshest ingredients. That’s why I’m using products from Hiland Dairy!
Nothing defines summer quite like ice cream. That is why I invite my kids’ friends over for an ice cream social every summer. They love it! Scour your cupboards and fridge for sundae toppings, buy your favorite flavors of Hiland Dairy Ice Cream and let the building begin!
Let’s talk smoothies, Divas! I find that blending simple ingredients together is a quick way to get the energy boost I need or to ward off my kids’ tummy rumbles between meals. I set up a “smoothie bar” and let the blending begin.
Peanut butter and jelly, milk and cookies, cell phones and chargers…one thing just doesn’t go without the other. That’s why when I think of summer, I think of ice cream! And Hiland Dairy has six new flavors that my kids wanted to put to the test. I mean really, who wouldn’t?
Well, today is the day you can actually take the saying to heart because it’s National Dessert Day. In honor of this sweetest of holidays, why not try out this rich, nutty Pecan Pie recipe that’s packed full of ooey-gooey deliciousness?
As the mercury rises this summer, I’ve got a great recipe for some delicious cookies that are light, lemony and a perfect companion for just about any outdoor lunch or dinner. I saw this recipe for Buttery Lemon Lace Cookies and absolutely had to give them a go – I was looking for a simple, elegant and light cookie to pair with some Hiland Dairy Real Vanilla Ice Cream, and these beauties seemed perfect.
I have a friend who loves Rolo candies. Decadent chocolate and creamy caramel? What’s not to love?
So one day, I decided to make her something as close to a Rolo as I could, but with a few changes. I used semi-sweet chocolate instead of milk chocolate. I added sea salt to the caramel and also sprinkled it on top. And, I didn’t go to the trouble of forming the candies into the small cylindrical shape of their store-bought inspiration.
But the result was, if I do say so myself, delicious! And, if you go to the trouble of making a batch, they are perfect for parties, housewarming gifts or setting out when guests drop by.
Well, this creamy, delicious treat isn’t just for Christmas anymore. So the next time you’re at the store, pick up some Hiland Dairy Easter Egg Nog and delight your family with this deliciously spicy recipe that perfect for an Easter breakfast or dessert!
