Fruttare Frozen Fruit Bars-Mango Lime Coconut!

Fruttare Frozen Fruit Bars-Mango Lime Coconut! | Fabtastic Eats Does anyone else feel like Summer is just absolutely flyiiiiing by? I was Skyping with my mom yesterday, and we couldn’t get over how, Fall is only about 1 1/2 months away! (officially, anyways.) But, but, buttttttt, didn’t Summer just begin? Like last week?

We’re trying our absolute hardest to soak up every single ounce of our favorite season! We’re so grateful that the weather has been positively perfect every single day. We  move in just a couple short weeks, (again), but I’m so excited for this now that we made the decision to just do it! I wish it was happening tomorrow.

Unfortunately, about a week after we move, my husband is heading off to Korea for a bit. But the bright side?! Family! Since he’s leaving, my in-laws are offering to buy plane tickets for my kids and I to go back east! And if we don’t end up doing that, my brother is going to come out and stay with us! I am ecstatic either way!

Fruttare Frozen Fruit Bars-Mango Lime Coconut! | Fabtastic Eats I’m incredibly close with my family, and my kids are in loooove with their grandparents, as they should be! So of course,  living on the opposite end of the country can be kind of tough sometimes. Honestly though, in a way, it makes us closer and appreciate each other more.

We skype and talk on the phone constantly, when we are together we don’t waste a minute of it. For me, there is nothing better than my kids and my family. Every morning I wake up, and even if it’s way to early, or I know that I have a long day ahead of me, seeing my kids smiling faces, already brightens my day. My three year old runs in first thing every morning, and wakes me up by kissing my forehead, my nose, then my lips! Then we run down the hall to where my 20 month old is talking and laughing loudly in his crib. I mean, is there honestly a brighter way to wake up? I think not!

Well, maybe if my husband brought me coffee in bed every single morning too! ;)

Fruttare Frozen Fruit Bars-Mango Lime Coconut! My boys, even though sometimes give me really hard days, one of my favorite things about them, is that as fast as they might get upset about something, they’re mood just as quickly shifts to laughing and playing! And those smiles are bright, and contagious, and I cant help but smile back! My kids and my family brighten my life in more ways than they’ll know.

These sweet little boys are fruit and snack obsessed. I swear I can’t keep food in this house for long, I can only imagine what it’s going to be like in ten years…

IMG_3763 We’ve been inhaling these frozen fruit bars lately! They’re sooooo good and they’re made with real fruit! When the mid-afternoon sun is at it’s highest, and we’ve been playing outside all day, there is seriously nothing better than something cool and sweet! So far we’ve tried the Fruttare Mango Flavor and the Coconut.Holy cow are these good! I am loooving the mango! So fabulous on their own, but rubbed with a little lime juice, and rolled in coconut flakes..just another fun way to enjoy them! (And they’re only 60 calories!)

I’m dying to try the Pineapple next! My kids would not stop at one! Some of my favorite photographs of these guys are when they’re all messy with frozen treats dripping down their arms, so cute! These bars have become a staple in our freezer this Summer, and I know you’ll enjoy them as much as we do!

Hot and Sweet Turkey Burger with Whipped Blue Cheese

Hot Cherry Peppers, Sweet Nectarines, and Tangy Blue Cheese come together to make one mouthwatering Hot and Sweet Turkey Burger!

Hot and Sweet Turkey Burger with Whipped Blue Cheese | Fabtastic Eats I’m about to tell you something that you’re all probably going to think is CRAY-ZEE. Well maybe not alllll of you, but certainly most.

First of all, I never really cared for burgers until I met my husband, soo six years ago. I mean sure I would have one now and then, but I never ordered them out and I certainly didn’t make them at home. They were kind of just ‘whatever’ to me. Thennn he comes along, and they’re his absolute favorite food. I’m pretty sure the first six months we were together he never ordered anything different, well except on our our first date.

Hot and Sweet Turkey Burger with Whipped Blue Cheese | Fabtastic Eats So I learned to LOVE them pretty quickly, and they became something I ordered frequently and made often. Fast forward a few years, 302489 burgers, two kids, and a whole new body later. ahh yah.I think you see where I’m going with this.

I began to eat less red meat, and instead learned to love turkey burgers..a slightly healthier option. (you know, depending on your topping choices!) but still, generally just a little better for my diet, especially when I had four months to lose all my baby weight before my wedding. After the wedding, I kind of went back to an ‘all things go’ kind of diet. Lots of beer was drunk, and burgers were consumed. (The red beefy kind!)

Hot and Sweet Turkey Burger with Whipped Blue Cheese | Fabtastic Eats But thennnn, and here’s the crazy part, I started to not care for them again, and began leaning towards and preferring turkey burgers over a beef burger any day. I tried again a few weeks ago with a ground sirloin burger, and I just wasn’t feeling it. They just don’t do it for me anymore.

So here is where I tell you that I absolutely LOVE turkey burgers, and I dont care that some people say they’re not really burgers, because they totally are, or that they’re bland and dry, because they’re totally not. Not if you you know how to do them.

Hot and Sweet Turkey Burger with Whipped Blue Cheese | Fabtastic Eats I’ve shared a few of our favorites here, and I’m giving you another mouthwatering burger today. And it really is mouthwatering. It’s not anywhere near bland or dry. This burger is bursting with flavors!

I’m totally obsessed with these peppers from Trader Joes. I cant stop using them on everythiiiing.  The patty itself is loaded with the sweet and spicy peppers, mesquite seasoning, and a little salt. It’s incredibly moist from the liquid, and not even close to dry, even with the help of the panko to hold it together. Then its topped with a good helping of whipped blue cheese! (yes!) I mean, we’ve whipped feta before, so why not? And trust, its goooood. Finally, we top it all off with sweet, ripe slices of nectarine. Heavennnn.

Hot and Sweet Turkey Burger with Whipped Blue Cheese | Fabtastic Eats I proooomise this turkey burger will not disappoint!
