Three Cool-Down Treats for Hot Summer Days

As the warm weather comes to an end, enjoy these refreshing treats without ever turning on the oven.

Selecting raw fruit and vegetables as your summer snacks is a great way to keep from heating up your house. As an added bonus, these foods are packed with phytochemicals and offer the most delicious way to keep you hydrated. While cucumbers, tomatoes, and celery are all great options to help keep your sun-kissed skin aglow, sometimes we need a little something extra to get us through these final blistering days. When a celery stalk just won’t cut it, try a slushie, popsicles, or a watermelon cucumber salad to keep you cool.
