A Summer Smoothie and Frozen Treats to Chill by …

I love summer for its warmth and sunshine, but also because it makes me revamp my clean-eating goals! For a few months out of the year, I relish the opportunity to use the fresh, ripened fruits and veggies that I pick up from my local farmer’s market. Local fruits and veggies are not only healthier and taste better than store-bought produce, they’re also great add-ins for refreshing treats to help you stay cool in the summer!

When I search for new recipes online, which is nearly every day, I look for twists on classics, and out-of-the ordinary flavor combinations. If you’re the same and need some new summer desserts, check out these treats to keep your cool this summer!
