While I have seen and felt hotter summers (knock on wood) - I know that this summer definitely could use some cooling down.  I came across this recipe while reading my weekly subscriptions and thought it was a great thing to share.  It is perfect for those of us (hmm... me for example. lol) that are trying to shed some pounds... but not eliminate satisfying our sweet tooths or cooling our body down this summer.  I haven't tried out this recipe yet - but needless to say, I'll be heading to the market in the next couple of days to pick up supplies.  If you try it - let me know how you liked it. :)
Enjoy and Stay Cool this Summer!
