    It’s so hard to pick just one favorite light treat, but I think angel food cake topped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream is at the tippy top of that list!

    Awesome giveaway! A light treat in the summer — a bowl of frozen cherries. They are so sweet!

    Jenny L says:

    I love to just sit down with a big bowl of frozen fruit. Walmart sells a bag of mixed frozen fruit with strawberries, peaches, mango, and pineapple. Its a cool snack when its 100+ degrees outside!

    One of my very favorite light treat that I enjoy all the time, but ESPECIALLY in the summer, is grilled pineapple! Usually I do it in my skillet but this would be the perfect thing for me!

    Do popsicles count as light? 🙂

    I’m sure it’s been said, and said, and SAID but my fav light and cool meal in the summer would be a salad. Especially fresh picked from the garden! I did not get as much lettuce from my garden this year as I would have liked, but the tomatoes are coming on and they are divine! They deserve to be eaten with cucumbers in a salad. 🙂
