Who’s excited that it’s almost summer?! I am so, so, so ready to be at the beach, relaxing, and enjoying some much needed downtime with friends and family. During these months, we are always outside—from the time the sun rises to the time it sets. With that said, I’m always looking for refreshing snacks to beat the heat.
Introducing our new obsession: papaya banana bowls. If you’ve never had papaya, try it…now. This tropical fruit is not only delicious but it’s also packed with vitamins, fiber, and potassium to help refuel after a day in the sun. We’ve been filling ours with some homemade banana ice cream and topping it off with more delicious fruit and toppings.
This is such an easy recipe and can be whipped up on the spot. If you choose to make your own banana ice cream, make it ahead of time and store in freezer so the bowls are easy to prepare. The same goes for the fruit!
Here’s our family’s favorite “beat the heat” recipe that may end up being your favorite, too:
