Refreshing Recipes to Stay Cool this Summer


 Asian Avocado Salsa:

This twist on salsa is great if you love something with a little spice and crunch. The dip is ideal to serve at a dinner party with your parents and in-laws to be – and if you want to be extra healthy serve it with Mary’s Gone Crackers (a rice and sesame gluten free cracker) instead of tortilla chips.

Pineapple-Coconut Smoothie:

After a long, hot day of shopping or running errands with your maid of honor, this revitalizing drink is perfect to quench your thirst. Remember to freeze about 2 cups of coconut water in 1 or 2 ice-cube trays before leaving the house. Blend 2 cups of chopped pineapple and 2 cups of the coconut ice with 1 ½ tablespoons of lime juice, 1 tablespoon of honey and ½ cup of coconut water.

No-Bake Energy Bites:

Perfect as an on-the-go snack these no-bake bites are both nutritious and delicious. Maybe you have a long day of wedding planning ahead of you? Take these treats and eat one when you feel you are running low on energy.

Refreshing Cucumber Sandwiches:

Know the saying cool as a cucumber – well these sandwiches will help you stay just that. Just the thing to bring on a picnic with your fiance – these light ingredients will help you feel rejuvenated rather than full. All that’s needed for this recipe are 1/3 less fat cream cheese, cucumber (washed and unpeeled), fresh chives or green onions, and wheat bread. 

Rosemary Balsamic Marinade:

Opt for a healthier marinade when grilling with your wedding party this summer. This tangy dressing has ingredients that not only taste great together, but also have stellar health benefits.
