Stay Cool this Summer!

Hydrate from the inside out!
Hydrate a slim down by eating water-rich fruits and veggies. Here are a few fun ways to get your water rich fruits and veggies and stay cool this summer!


- seedless watermelon
- mint leaves

Puree seedless watermelon (which are about 92% water) in a blender with a handful of fresh mint leaves. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.


- cucumber peeled and sliced
- lime-flavored seltzer
- a spritz of lime juice
(use a real lime, the artificial lime juice has too many artificial chemicals)

Chop then muddle one third of a peeled cucumber (about 96% water) in a highball glass. Top with lime-flavored seltzer and a spritz of lime juice. Garnish with cucumber slices.



  1. Both of these sound delicious!

  2. Yes I agree! But I am having the darndest time finding popsicle molds! Its so weird.

  3. You've probably found popsicle molds by now, since it's been nearly a year since you posted this, but in the event you're ever short of them, you can make due with an ice cube tray, plastic wrap, and toothpicks. Popsicles are still popsicles when they're ice cube-shaped! :D
