Cooking together is a huge connection point for the families I talk to, so here’s a quick cheatsheet (feel free to add in 1 drop of an essential oil for a new flavor profile!) so that you can not only have one fun meal, but SO many combinations to choose from with cool, fruity treats (whether as a beverage or dessert or even popsicle) this Summer and year-round - enjoy! :)

For allergies and food sensitivities, feel free to modify!
