We've had record high temps in my area (and lots of places actually!) If you could choose only ONE favorite cold treat on a steaming hot, humid 100+ degree day - what would you choose? Mine is ice cold grapes - so refreshing! We keep them in the ice box or sometimes pop in the freezer for a few minutes before eating them - YUM. Light but super cold and sweet.
sort by best latest
agreed! I make these for my sons and they love them but in this heat I've been cleaning up more of then than they've been eating!
Never heard of those! I'll have to look them up.
gazpacho! we were trying to think of the name of the cold soup yesterday and I couldn't come up with it :) thanks! Coconut pops sounds delicious I'll have to find some.
I like good old vanilla ice cream too, wanted to go get a scoop yesterday, but at 105 degrees I figured it would be soup as soon as they handed it to me lol. has to be "real" ice cream too none of that soft serve stuff ;)
I agree, I make homemade ones all the times for my boys so that they are healthy and not full of chemicals and other junk. The variety is definitely a plus.
I like a good glass of tea too. When its not a thousand degrees outside raspberry tea is also delicious hot.
sometimes nothing beats an ice cold glass of water - especially that first sip when you come in from the heat!
mmmmm love fresh squeezed variety, with a bit of lime in it too :) lemonade sounds good I think I'll do that today :)
haha great minds ;) I keep frozen fruit too, I love the mixed berry blends. I sometimes throw in drinks in place of ice cubes - works well and gives more flavor to lemonade and tea etc.
agree nothing quite like lemon or any citrus really when it's so hot outside.
lemon mixed with the mint sounds very good. I will have to read more about Lassi as I have never heard of it, but it's always interesting to learn about foods of other cultures :)
I really like mango lassis
Lassi is more or less like yogurt. You can add fruits such as mango or pineapple in lassi, if made in a food processor/ mixer.
I love Trader Joe's! I only wish they had some stores closer to us, it's like an hour away but we go now and then. Best food ever!
I'm kind of the same way - I like a little bit of ice cream, but I prefer the heavier stuff when it's not quite this hot.
ooh floats :) I used to love them growing up with root beer - yummy.
absolutely! We tried a "black diamond" watermelon yesterday. It was pretty tasty, really sweet. I think I'm more of a traditionalist, but it's a neat one to try if you haven't before. I like cantaloupe too
sounds good :)
