With so many fruits in season, investing in a quality smoothie blender is a must. Everything from strawberries and bananas to peaches and watermelon are at their prime in the summer. Take advantage of these fruits while you can by enjoying them in a morning smoothie. There’s no better way to start your day than with a healthy breakfast that tastes delicious. Find some of our favorite fruit smoothie recipes here.
Spiral Vegetable Slicer
Okay, we don’t mind admitting that we don’t always eat as many vegetables as we should. However, spiralizing our favorite summer veggies has helped many pick up better eating habits. Whether it’s because they’re more fun to eat in spiralized format (is it the way they remind us of curly fries?) or because veggie spirals are easy to incorporate in a variety of meals, vegetables sliced into spirals are among the top summer food trends.

Outdoor Bar Cart
Bar carts are a summertime staple because, chances are, you’re spending a lot of time outdoors this season. While you’re out soaking up the sunshine, hosting guests, and barbecuing, cold drinks should never be out of reach. A bar cart can be used for storing your favorite ingredients so that you’re always prepared to whip up a piña colada or a freshly squeezed lemonade for the kids. Be sure to keep several chilled bottles of water on hand to keep yourself and your guests hydrated.
Salad Cutter Bowl
Who among us hasn’t vowed to eat more salads only to revert to our old habit of picking up a Wendy’s Four for Four meal several times a week? Salad cutter bowls are here to fix that by taking virtually all the work out of making a salad. If you haven’t seen one of these in action, imagine a large salad bowl with a lid on top and open slots on the bottom. These bottom slots are large enough for a knife to pass through in order to chop the contents of your salad bowl. Instead of chopping all ingredients individually, salad cutter bowls make it easy to chop everything at once.
Few things are more enjoyable than a tasty popsicle on a hot summer day. If you’re planning a summer gathering, offering a variety of popsicle flavors is a good way to keep your guests feeling refreshed throughout the evening. While these are the perfect frozen treat for kids and adults alike, getting the kids involved in the preparation will get them involved and keep them busy while you make preparations for your summer party.
