There is nothing more satisfying on a hot day than a freezing cold treats straight out of the icebox unless it is a homemade Summertime Cool Down Sweet Treats. Warning this Summertime Cool Down Sweet Treats list will have that sweet tooth of yours screaming for more even with brain freeze.
Who else is hot? This summer has been brutal. Anyone that knows me knows I am not a fan of swimming or getting into the water. This year, however, I am happy we invested in an above ground pool a few years ago. Seriously it is a scorcher out there!
Despite the hot temps all my kids want to do is play outside all day. Bike rides, park time, running around like crazy people. As long as it is outside they are happy. And if we are being completely honest I prefer it that way.
Call me old fashion but I don’t like them staring at the screen all day. I think kids should play in the mud and scrap up their knees. I think they should drink from hoses and run through sprinklers as I am watering the lawn. I do draw the line at climbing the trees in the backyard, they are still a bit too young and the thought of them falling is too much for this mama.
The truth to this situation is the more active my kids are the more active I am. It is a win-win all around.
But! Being outside most of the day in 95+ degree temps has its downfalls. Hydration is key we always make sure to bring our water bottles out and for every 2-3 hours, we must be ready for a refill. Sunscreen, I should really buy stock in it as well as bug spray.
Finally, there is the cooldown. Stock the freezer with some Summertime Cool Down Sweet Treats for after lunch and dinner.
Now I used to be like many other parents out there, go to the store and buy that jumbo box of frozen treats. Then I saw a video about how one and the ice cream sandwich did not melt in the direct sunlight after hours of sitting there. It disgusted me so much I decide homemade is the way to go.
The happier and healthier mommy is the happier and healthier my minis are!
