The Coolest Treats & Tips
Just because it's about to be summer doesn't mean you have to splurge in the freezer aisle! We've got healthy ideas to keep you cool off the eaten path.
Jazz up a cold drink: Give iced water new life with all-natural Celestial Seasonings Zingers, or try freezing ice cubes with berries or lemon floating inside.
Be your own barista: Why get a loaded drinkuccino when a healthy DIY smoothie can have the same effect? Try Lauren and Caren's Mindful Mocha smoothie with omega-3s and fiber to keep you cool and full!
Think inside the box: You'll be surprised how many of your healthy faves do well in the freezer. Frozen grapes and cherries make a refreshing snack, or drop some yogurt (like Siggi's) with a topping into popsicle molds.
Scream for (the right) ice cream: For the calorie-conscious, Lauren and Caren recommend Skinny Cow Skinny Dippers or Edy's No Sugar Fruit Pops. If you're a natural girl, VJD likes Green & Black's organic ice cream and Stonyfield Farm's organic low- and non-fat varieties. Make your own with this super-easy recipe for agave frozen yogurt.
