When the temperature tips 90 and the humidity rises up to meet it and people gather around the air conditioner complaining about the heat

I say, ” Bring. It. On.”

I absolutely love a good, hot summer day, grateful I survived another Wisconsin winter and silently convincing myself that I was Mexican in another life and don’t belong in cold. I even crack my window so I can let a bit of the hot humid air to sneak past the air conditioner and into my office to remind me it is officially summer. 

I heart summer, no doubt about it.  

When I was in Panama Andy took the boys out for rootbeer floats, which they can’t stop talking about.

I am not a huge fan of soda for kids, obviously, but gosh I have great memories myself of my mom making us Coke floats on a  hot day. So…one hot evening last week I came up with these Better For You Floats that we sat sipping on the deck… 

and they did the trick.

Here’s What You Need:
Ciao Bella Adonia Vanilla Frozen Greek Yogurt
All Natural Zevia soda (your favorite flavor)
A tall glass, a long spoon, and a straw!

Here’s What You Do:
Scoop frozen yogurt into a large glass and pour soda over. Enjoy!

Kid Tip:
Aside from not telling them this is a healthy float, no tips are really needed!

    These sound so refreshing and your family really seems to enjoy them. I’ve never heard of the ingredients you’ve used but I suspect a visit to our local co-op will take care of that. Have a wonderful day. Blessings…Mary

      Thanks Mary! Let me know if you try them. Both the frozen yogurt and the healthy sodas are worth hunting down!

    These sound great for a hot Summer Day, just like you said. I’m glad I’m not the only one who believes I am tropical even though I’m not :) I will have to go and look for that soda you are talking about, never seen it. Thanks for sharing they look refreshing.

  5. I could GUZZLE one of these right about now! looks awesome!
