Joy Bauer cools things down with PB&J pops and cookie dough frozen yogurt bites

Treat yourself right! Two crave-worthy desserts made with nourishing ingredients: Cookie Dough Frozen Yogurt Bites and PB&J Pops. In my house, everyone screams for cookie dough ice cream. I mean, really, is there anything better than sweet, creamy ice cream laden with chewy bits of cookie dough goodness?!? Here, I've whipped up an easy version we can all feel good about enjoying any day of the week. This spin is a real winner because prep is super simple (no ice cream machine required, no churning needed), and each bite is perfectly portioned, light on calories and packed with protein. Oh, and they're totally scrumptious. Scoop, there it is!

Joy Bauer stays cool in the heat with 2 summer rolls

Stop, drop and roll — I’ve whipped up two tasty Vietnamese-style summer rolls to enjoy! If you’re wondering the difference between a spring roll and summer roll, here’s the deal: The summer spin is served cold (no need to heat up the kitchen in the warmer months) whereas the spring version is cooked. Also, the summer roll uses rice flour-based paper, while spring rolls use dough. Different sauces can really make your rolls rock, so feel free to drizzle, dip or completely dunk — you’re the boss of your sauce.

Joy Bauer fights fatigue with energy-boosting muffins and mocha frappé

Fight fatigue with flavorsome fare. Keep these two energizing recipes on midday slump standby: Chocolate Energy Muffins and Mocha Frappé. These nutrient-packed, chocolate muffins will keep you energized every bite of the way! They offer a balance of protein and fiber for sustained energy, plus the espresso adds a hit of caffeine and a subtle mocha flavor for the ultimate power-up. If you don't have espresso on hand, you can use instant coffee instead; just be sure it's finely ground into a powder. While 1 to 2 tablespoons is my recommended amount, you can adjust depending upon how much (or less) caffeine you're looking to add. You can also choose to omit the espresso entirely if you're caffeine-sensitive or prefer to make these kid-friendly.
