Starting with these deliciously cool smoothie pops from RedBook. Not only are they creamy, cool, and delicious, but they are also a great, healthy alternative to those sugary popsicles we’re all used to. They’re also extremely easy to make, you just blend a half-cup of lemon or lime juice, a cup of fresh fruit, and a half-cup of plain yogurt, then pour into molds and freeze!
Who doesn’t love a good salad? This Kale Salad with Strawberries, Goat Cheese, and Strawberry-Mint Vinaigrette from The Roasted Root puts the perfect spin on a traditional salad to make it absolutely perfect for those hot summer days.
During the summer, you can never go wrong with tortilla chips dipped in a fresh salsa. Complete Recipes shows just how simple it can be to make your own fresh salsa. All you need to do is mix some tomatoes, onions, garlic cloves, fresh cilantro, jalapeño, and salt, and you’ll have a deliciously fresh salsa that you and your friends are sure to love all summer long.
Another great way to cool off this summer is to make refreshing popsicles. Try these Watermelon Cucumber Popsicles from The Comfort of Cooking for a refreshingly crisp treat. All you need to make these scrumptious popsicles is cucumber, watermelon, a little simple syrup, and some fresh lime juice.
