Beat The Heat With Fun And Refreshing Summer Beverages
(NAPSA) – Longer days and warmer weather welcome a never-ending list of summer fun. And what better way to enjoy the sunny days than with summer slushies, smoothies and sparkling beverages!
These tasty treats not only help families beat the heat, but they are an excellent source of hydration during the sweltering days of summer. As the days get longer and temperatures rise, let cool and fruity refreshers be your passport to summer fun.
Following are some ideas for staying cool and hydrated this summer:
- Chill out with ‘fruitsicles.’ Pour 100 percent fruit juice and frozen berries or fresh fruit into small paper cups, cover with foil, insert a wooden craft stick and freeze. The result? A delicious juicy pop kids will love.
- Accessorize with a fruity flair. Encourage kids to make healthier beverage choices by adding a creative splash to drinks. Use colorful cups (with silly straws, of course!) topped with a wedge of fresh fruit-a fun way for kids to fuel up fast.
- Refresh your freezer. Keep frosty beverages on hand that will quench kids’ thirst, such as fruit slushies or tropical smoothies. Blend frozen or fresh fruits with all-natural fruit juice, pour in a freezer-friendly container and freeze for enjoyment anytime.
- Mix and mingle with drinks for all ages. Add kid-friendly twists to adultlike beverages with this refreshing recipe for Sparkling ‘Sangria.’ Featuring frozen orange slices with apple or white grape pure fruit juice and seltzer water, the best part of this flavorful drink is its surprisingly fruity twist. With fresh grapes frozen inside each ice cube, this simple recipe provides a delightful dose of nutritious fruits.
