Ideas for healthy cool treats?

Hello all,

I live in Central Canada where we're in the middle of a 3 week heat wave. Everyday for the past 3 weeks it has been 40 degrees with humidity levels of ~70%. I live in an apartment without AC/Central Air, but thank God my office is AC or I think I'd go crazy. I have been craving cool treats since it's been so hot, but don't know of any good healthy ones. I've been getting DQ ice cream cones because I know they're not too bad and have been drinking LOTS of ice water. Any other healthy ideas to help me cool down!???

Sincerely,
Hot in Canada

Well, I don't know of any "recipes" but if I were you, I'd buy some popsicles, and make some iced tea or lemonade. And while your eating the popsicles, you could have the fan blowing on ya!

Re: Ideas for healthy cool treats?

I've been making homemade iced tea and the whole Crystal Light Lemon-Lime attempt (See posting titled Apartame) was not great. I would love to find a great lemonade. Any suggestions? I'm going grocery shopping tonight and will try to find one. I actually hate popsickles - when I was really sick before they diagnosed me with Addison's disease, while in hospital my meals consisted of 2 popsickles, apple juice, jello, and applesauce. I can't eat any of these foods because I vomited them too much. Last night after soccer I had a big white freeze! That was yummy, but was pure sugar!

Thanks for the ideas!

Re: Ideas for healthy cool treats?

Mmmm, thanks Losec. I am going grocery shopping tonight. I will see if my local Real Canadian Superstore has it stocked. The heat is starting to break here in Eastern Ontario. How about MTL? I spend a lot of time in MTL. I have many friends who live there.

Re: Ideas for healthy cool treats?

Thanks, I will definitely check it out. I love lemon-flavor, actually I really like lemons and sometimes eat them by themselves. Yeah it's raining here too. It has cooled down a bit and there is a nice breeze of the St. Lawrence.

Yup, the St. Lawrence, my work and house are about 100 feet from it.
