Refreshing Ideas to Beat the Summer Heat

Are you one of the millions of parents this summer constantly being asked, “Can I have another popsicle?” Keeping a stockpile of popsicles in your freezer has been a summer conundrum for parents for years. Don’t worry; Cash Saver has you covered. We offer a variety of popsicles (even different types of sugar-free options) at the lowest price in Memphis. Plus, there are more options than popsicles for beating the heat. Here are a few other refreshing treat ideas to get you through the summer.

Fruit and Yogurt Parfait: You can find these in many produce sections, but they are usually more expensive than just making them from scratch at home. Parfaits are so popular because they are easy to make and taste delicious. Just choose your favorite granola, yogurt, and fruits (such as strawberries and blueberries) and layer them. First, add fruit, then yogurt, and finally, your granola. Stir it all together as you eat it, and voila – you have a tasty, refreshing, and healthy snack.

Watermelon: You cannot go wrong with watermelon, and there are many other ways you can use watermelon to beat the heat besides just slicing and taking a bite. For an excellent summer adult treat – make watermelon balls, soak them in rum, and place them in the freezer. For a non-alcoholic drink, try making watermelon Agua Fresca. For this recipe, blend 5 cups of seedless watermelon, 2 cups of cold water, and one packet of Crystal Light Pure On-The-Go Lemonade Flavor Mix. Serve it over ice and garnish with lime.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee: Many people are coffee lovers, but it’s hard to enjoy as we usually do during the summer heat. So why not try a yummy, iced coffee? This coffee recipe is also very simple. You pour three tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk over a cup full of ice and stir in 1 cup of cooled, strong coffee. Isn’t it lovely you do not have to forgo your coffee in the summer?
