What To Do In The Hot Weather?

Updated on May 3, 2016

Summer days have been getting hotter. Most people are suffering from hot weather and the feeling is like baking in the oven. What is important is to take good care of your body and prevent yourselves from falling sick. There's a good way to deal with this extremely hot weather and stay healthy all the time!


What I like to do during the hot weather is to make some fruit juices/smoothies when I'm at home. I usually made these by my own with some references to books or friends. A glass of fruit juice/smoothie in the hot weather had totally light up my day.


So, I'm going to share with you some easy steps of making fruit juices/smoothies. It's a very good idea to quench your thirst especially in this kind of weather. This is pretty easy to make and I believe that everyone are able to do it.


I love fruit juices/smoothies just because it's both tasty and healthy! And for sure, it is 100% original without any flavorings like those you can buy anywhere in the shop.


Plus, the homemade fruit juices/smoothies do not cost much and it also does not take a lot of time to prepare. It's not like the one you order outside that taste very sweet and cost you at least RM10++ per serving. It's the healthiest fruit juices/smoothies!


What I normally do is, I don't buy those fruits purposely. Just using any fruits that have already inside your house refrigerator will do.

List of fruit juices/smoothies recipes

1. Lemon and Aloe Vera Juice

2. Orange and Peach Yogurt Drink

3. Mango Yogurt Milk

4. Grape and Lemon Honey Smoothie
