A Guilt Free Summer Treat {Recipe}

Let's talk Summer. 

It's hot! Like real, real hot here in Florida. What is worse that it just being hot is this disgusting humidity we have been living in. Nothing ruins my morning more than getting all ready for the day only to take the dogs out for 5 minutes and come back drenched... #floridafail.

So, I am always trying to find new ways to tackle this heat from submerging myself in the pool to leaving the car running when I have to make a quick errand. The one thing that never fails is a frozen sweet treat. I give you:

talk about simple, versatile, refreshing and guilt free

for this insanely easy recipe, you will need:
-yogurt of any flavor/brand (I prefer chobani or elli quark-both can be found at Target)
-1/2 cup fresh fruit
-3/4 tablespoon chia seeds
-agave/honey (optional)
-a glass

Steps:
1. unwrap the yogurt
2. finely cut or mash the fruit of your choosing
3. mix all together
4. if using agave or honey, add in last and swirl once lightly. 
5. pour into a glass and pop it in the freezer for 45mins-1 hour




When semi frozen, take a spoon around the edges and mix gently. enjoy! 

How do you beat the heat on summer days?
