Summer is here! Time to go outside and have fun! This is the time of the year we are enjoying the warm weather and outdoor activities such as bicycling, swimming or gardening. When it is time to take a break and refresh your body, think about healthy and delicious drinks and snacks. Soy is the perfect answer.
We asked culinary students to develop some recipes and one that fits the refreshing and yummy category is Silky Cranberry Cheery Freeze pops (think push-up pops). It is great for kids and adults alike! And you can make ahead and have ready in the freezer.
Another quick and easy drink idea is a smoothie. The great thing about smoothies is that soymilk, tofu, soy yogurt and any combination of them make a great base for smoothies. Then just add your favorite fresh or frozen fruit and blend in a blender and within minutes you have a healthy drink.
Want to have your family eat more fruits and vegetables? Try these quick and easy dips. Make ahead and have on hand when you are looking for a delicious and nutritious snack.
All of the ideas keep you kitchen cool too!
Enjoy the nice weather!
