Beat the Heat

It seems there is a heat wave on the West Coast, and the East Coast this week! What are you doing to beat the heat?

Here are some ideas for keeping cool!

Make your own healthy popsicles!
1)Take your favourite smoothie recipe (ones with berries and yogurt, and juice or water tend to work best), pour into paper cups.
2) Add a popsicle stick or chopstick & put in freezer
Enjoy healthy, sugar free frozen treats!

Cucumber Mint Smoothie (makes 2)
1 Cucumber
1/4 cup Fresh mint leaves (depending on how strong you want it!)
2 teaspoons unpasturized, raw honey
1/2 cup plain yogurt
water as needed

Blend all ingredients together and enjoy!

Iced Rooibos Tea (caffine free, and full of antioxidants!)
6 Rooibos Tea Bags
1 lemon or orange sliced (your preference)
10-15 mint leaves
a few teaspoons of honey - to taste
1 gallon boiled water

Place teabags, lemon, mint leaves and sugar in a large pot, pour boiling water onto this and leave to steep.

Let cool. Remove tea bags and place in fridge when cool. Serve over ice and enjoy!

And remember - stay hydrated!
