Stay Cool, My Friends

August. It’s hot. It’s humid. You’re always sticky with sweat. Every single time you step outside you SWEAR you can feel the individual beams of sunshine radiating on your skin.

To feel cool on the outside, you have to feel cool on the inside. While wearing sunglasses ups the cool factor, what better way to stay cool than enjoying some guilt-free sweet treats?! Here are five frozen treats to try when you feel like you’re melting this summer!

Chocolate Fudge Paletas

If you haven’t jumped on the avocado train, now is your chance. There’s spicy avocado, smushed avocado, dippable avocado, plain ‘ole avocado… and now some genius found a way to make avocado sweet and chocolately! What did we do to deserve them? 

Healthy Ice Cream Sandwiches

Who knew graham crackers weren’t just for s’mores and pie crusts?! You can take these little squares on the go -- put it in your pocket, your bag, your mouth. The possibilities are endless (until they melt)! 

Simple 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream

It’s peanut butter ice cream time, peanut butter ice cream time! If PB isn’t your thing, The Slow Roasted Italian also offers chocolate, strawberry, and pecan banana-based ice cream.* 

Starbucks Frappuccino Fudgsicles

Starbucks on a stick; for the millennial on a budget. Or regular person on a budget. Or maybe you’re a rare flower who prefers Dunkin over Starbucks. I won’t judge. Call these pops whatever you want, delicious is the first thought that comes to my mind.

*For the extra creative or those who just prefer ice cream sandwiches, try using the The Slow Roasted Italian flavors as the fillings for the ice cream sandwich!

How to Make A Healthy Piña Colada 

If you like pina coladas, you’re going to love this *healthy* recipe from Wake the Wolves. Rum optional (but not really, let’s be honest).
