'Cool' Treats For A Healthy Summer

ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) With summer in full force and the heat index getting higher and higher, our need to cool down is almost unbearable, making ice cream and cold sugary drinks some of the top go-tos. But there are ways you can melt the calories without gaining the pounds!

The ice cream truck – it’s the sound of summer! But that ice cream you love could also be your worst enemy. So here are a few ways you can enjoy a frozen treat without breaking the scale. Fruit is great but not if it comes in ice form. Some brands brag that they're "made with real fruit" but check the label. Some list sugar as the main ingredient before any real fruit. Save your waist by making your own. Dilute high-calorie juice with water in an ice pop mold. Add chunks of your favorite fruit to give it a twist.

If you need a little chocolate, go for dark. A number of brands like Skinny Cow make low-calorie chocolatey treats and even some that are fat-free. And always look at the ingredient list. The fewer ingredients, the better for you it will be.

Survive the summer time happy hour by staying away from frozen margaritas of daiquiris. Depending on the brand, they can pack a whopping 500 calories. Opt instead for a cool mojito at around 150 calories or wine spritzers which typically have under than 50.
