3 Beat-the-heat Summer Snacks to Try in July

SummerSnacksBanner

With a little grocery-store perusing or dessert bar indulging – it’s definitely possible to get practically any type of icy treat or healthy fruit choice, any time of the year.

 

But if you’re like many of us do-it-yourself snack makers, who like to look out for the freshest local eats and love trying your hand at tasty recipes – stay cool and hydrated this July with our top three ‘juiciest’ summer heat quenchers:

 

Whole Fruit Popsicles

Keep your favorite fruits as your star ingredient by mixing and matching summer produce (mango, kiwi, strawberry and pineapple) using a small food processor to prepare a smooth puree easy for spooning into your Popsicle molds when ready. Recipe 

 

Mango Frozen Yogurt

Enjoy a fibre/protein burst this summer by giving this (5 minute) creamy recipe a go. Add some extra crunch to your smooth mango yogurt snack by sprinkling pistachio crumble bits on top. Alternatively try serving with toasted coconut flakes for equal flavor and healthy goodness. Recipe 

 

Pink Lemonade Watermelon Slushies

Ahh! The ultimate refresher fit for any summertime celebration. Lighten the sugar load (often found in store-bought lemonades) by mixing this quintessential bevy with homemade watermelon juice and H20. Recipe 

 

Enjoy!
