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
Never heard of those! I'll have to look them up.
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.
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!
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 ;)
agree nothing quite like lemon or any citrus really when it's so hot outside.
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!
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.
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.
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!
ooh floats :) I used to love them growing up with root beer - yummy.
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.
sounds good :)
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
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.
