 Beat the heat this summer with these no-cook recipes!

We are two days away from the first day of summer! While that means lots of fun and hopefully some vacations, it can also mean heat. And Southern heat is no joke. You can find refuge in a swimming pool or somewhere that has AC, but you can also eat foods that cool you off and leave your belly feeling happy!

These recipes that I’ve found require no cooking, so they’ll be no need to sweat over a hot stove! They’re also good for enjoying outside (if you’re feeling brave).

      I just tried something I thought I never would because it didn’t really SOUND appetizing. But I love it! Watermelon cut in small chunks tossed with feta cheese and sunflower seeds. Definitely be having this a lot this summer.

      Shave (use a spoon to scrape small strips and very small pieces from the interior of a watermelon) a watermelon (perferably seedless) into a vaery large bowl or 5 gallon bucket. Add a can of coconut milk (the stuff in the asian and hispanic food sections, not the garbage they sell as a beverage). Pour in a 2+ cups of sugar (I never said this was low calorie, just cold and ridiculously delicious. Add a bunch of ice cubes and stick it in the fridge overnight to chill and give the flavors a chance to blend.
      Optional but recomended: 1) before chilling, add 1-3 cans of crushed pineaple. 2) before chilling, using a large whole cheese grater, grate several mangos and add to the mix.
      This drink is ridiculously delicious, but I always add sugar to taste, to you may need to experiment with the amount of sugar you add.
