Summer Chill Refreshing Summer Snacks

Story by Darlene Bailey l Photo by Kelly Caldwell

With a 100 degree plus temperature who wants to even think about food must less cook it?  This heat will drain you pretty quickly.  Most days I find myself snacking instead of eating a full meal. 

With the temperature gauge in the upper range right now grilling is even out at my house.  A homegrown tomato and fresh bread is very popular at the Bailey household.  I do however have a few refreshing snack ideas you might enjoy.  If you've never tried frozen grapes, strawberry apples or chocolate covered frozen banana's I think you're in for a treat.  Sounds plain and simple-right?  Sometimes simple is......just right!

These easy, no fuss treats will cool off the hottest of hotheads!!
No apron required---no cooking involved. 
Choose any kind of seedless grape's and pull away from stem, place on cookie sheet and freeze after frozen you can store in zip lock bag until ready to use.
Peel and slice as many apples (any kind) as you want, throw into zip lock bag with dry strawberry jello and shake.  Leave in bag in fridg until ready to use. (use less or more jello according to how many apple slices but do use a hefty amount) **needs to chill at least 2 hours
*peel and half a ripe but firm banana, melt chocolate accordingly, dip then freeze on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet.
