During the hot summer months, it’s more important than ever to stay cool and hydrated. One easy way to do that is through tasty, healthy treats that are packed with water, which will satisfy your cravings as well as quench your thirst.
Here’s a list of summer snacks to beat the heat:
- Popsicles – This classic go-to treat is cheap to buy at the store and easy to make at home, with fresh fruit juice.
- Frozen fruits – Many fruits, such as grapes and watermelon, are made of mostly water. Better yet, you can eat them frozen by placing these fruits in the freezer.
- Banana ice cream – Instead of conventional, calorie-dense ice cream, make your own ice cream out of a cheap, delicious kitchen staple: the banana.
- Peppers – This time of the year, you’ll see plenty of peppers at your local farmers market. And while you’d think they’d warm you up, spicy foods actually lower your body temperature.
