Not everyone loves ice cream. So, if you like your summer treats chilled, but aren’t a big ice cream fan, you may be more inclined to savor a skinny summer treat that can still provide you with that fresh flavor.  IF this is the case, choose the Fruit Smoothie.

Frozen is not the only way to enjoy the tastes of summer.   Maybe you don’t really like the brain freeze that comes with frozen foods. If frozen isn’t your chosen method to cool down, choose from one of my favorite, delicious fruit infused waters.fruit infused
