Sunnier and warmer days can only mean one thing — summer is finally here! While trips to the beach or outdoor cooling activities used to be the go-to on hot summer days, there are also other easy and quick ways to feel cool and refreshed at home.
Here are three healthy and easy-to-make fruit-based cool treats that are definitely worth trying out:
1) Frozen Fruit Bites
This treat is definitely very easy to make as it only needs three ingredients: fruits, yogurt, and a freezer! Any fruit can be used such as diced kiwi or watermelon, and even any kind of berry. Simply dip each fruit in any flavored yogurt of choice using a toothpick. After, transfer the dipped berry to a parchment-lined baking sheet or plate, then pop them in the freezer.
The Power Freeze feature of the Samsung Smart Conversion Refrigerator enables the compressor to run at its maximum capacity, allowing the freezer compartment to reach its maximum allowable temperature faster. It is great for firming up frozen food and making ice, so it will surely be perfect for this recipe! Easily have stocks of different frozen fruit bites for sharing on a hot summer day. Anticipating that friends and family members will keep asking for more, a lot of space in the freezer is definitely needed. Easily access these with its Smart Conversion feature that provides extra storage for all kinds of refreshments.
2) Homemade Banana-Strawberry Ice Cream
This treat is really simple as it is very healthy. To make a batch, only four very-ripe bananas and one ½ kg of strawberries are needed. First, slice each fruit into thin pieces, arrange them in a single layer on a plate, and freeze overnight.
Next, place the frozen fruits in a food processor and puree until the mixture is creamy and smooth. Pop this in the freezer until it’s ready to be served! The Smart Sensor feature of the Samsung Bottom Mount Freezer (RL40A3SBAB1/TC) uses five sensors to monitor the temperature in the kitchen and inside the unit, ensuring that the ice cream, along with the other food, is well-kept.
3) Combination Smoothies
Smoothies can never be wrong on hot days! The base for a refreshing smoothie can be any liquid of choices such as milk or coconut water. The real flavor of the smoothies comes from the fruits and for this, any fruit combination such as mango-pineapple can work as well. Vegetables can be added, too, and good examples are spinach, kale, and other greens.
Search for combinations and other add-ons right from the kitchen with the View Inside feature of the Samsung Family Hub. With this feature, check what’s inside the refrigerator by just swiping down the appliance’s home screen or through the SmartThings app. Or create other cooling and refreshing menu recommendations based on the ingredients that are already available in the refrigerator through the Family Hub’s Recipes & Meal Planner. While preparing the smoothie, set the summer mood right by playing using music in the refrigerator’s music apps like Spotify.
