Is it starting to warm up where you live? With flavors like banana, chocolate and watermelon, these 15 ‘Cool’ Treats make hot weather a little more bearable.
Like any other region, living in Southern AZ has it’s pros and cons. We basically have two seasons, summer & fall, not four. This makes it great in the winter, because I never have to worry about shoveling snow, but in the spring, when everyone else is having picnics at the park, I’m just wishing it weren’t already 95 degrees outside.
And the summers? Don’t even get me started. We are currently experiencing triple digits. A few years ago, while visiting my MIL in Colorado during the summer, my girls and I went on a little shopping trip. It was a gorgeous day. The sky was blue, the sun was out, and it was a perfect 80 degrees. At one point, I overheard a woman complaining to her friend how hot it was. I seriously wanted to slap her. I know, it’s all about perspective.
No matter what hot means to you, whether it be 80 degrees or 110 degrees, these 15 Cool Treats are sure to help you cope.
