Keeping Your Cool this Summer

In Georgia, we face high heat and humidity during summer months. Keep your body cool and hydrated with these tricks.

Water, water, water

1. Water bottles: Everyone in your family should have a personalized water bottle. Fun printed Duct tape is a great way to personalize plain bottles. An insulated bottle is best to encourage water intake on a hot day.

2. Spruce up your ice cubes. Grab an old fashioned ice tray and fill with fruit – citrus wedges, berries, and/or fresh herbs such as mint. Add water and freeze.

3. Create your own spa water using similar combinations for fruits, veggies and herbs.

 

Cool treats

2. Smoothie pops: Make your favorite smoothie an pour into a popsicle mold. Freeze.

3. Banana ice cream: Freeze bananas and puree in a food processor or blender for a creamy treat, like ice cream!
