Zucchini grows abundantly in our garden, and it is so versatile, healthy and tasty! It’s also easy to store or freeze for year-round enjoyment. We add frozen zucchini to smoothies, ice cream, fresh zucchini that I add to desserts like brownies, and of course we love zucchini noodles and zucchini oats. With zero fat and lots of fiber, it also contains significant amounts of vitamins B6, riboflavin, folate, C and K, and minerals. Yum ! These zucchini pizza bites from Lena Ropp will be one of your favorite snacks. A perfect low carb pizza ready in just 10 minutes in the oven!

4. Hummus and tomato bruschetta

The hummus recipe is a staple in my kitchen and will suffice for 2 full jars. The marinade for the tomatoes is simply basil, olive oil, and salt, which really brings out their juicy flavor.

What if you could have all of that, plus ice cream? This Holly Bertone S’mores Ice Cream Cake has all the flavors and textures of a perfect smore, but with the added bonus of being a cool, creamy treat. It’s the perfect summer dessert.
