Hot Days, Cool Treats!

As the summer gets hotter and hotter, I know that I am dying for a cold treat every afternoon. Being that I just completed my Whole30, I still try to stay away from dairy and sugars, so here are some of my new favorite cold "treats" that are healthy and guilt-free.

The first one is super easy and even your little ones can be tricked with it. It's banana "ice cream". Slice a banana, freeze it, top with toppings of your choice. My favorites are almond butter and coconut, and chocolate chips with some smashed raspberries. Easy, refreshing, and delicious!

The next recipe I have for your is equally as yummy, and if you like pina coladas, it's a guilt-free, alcohol-less option (or throw some rum in there, just don't share with your kiddos! :) It's a pina colada smoothie. Blend a banana, 1/2 c of frozen pineapple, 1/4 c of canned coconut milk, and about 2 tbsp. of shredded coconut until smooth and enjoy! Dairy-free, gluten-free, and makes you feel like you're on the beach!

I also like to freeze watermelon, grapes, and peaches for a cold treat as well. Do you have any favorite summer "treats"? I'd love to try them! "
