Favorite Fridays: Favorite Treats To Stay Cool
It's excessively hot and unusually humid in the DC Metro Area this week. The temperature is rising with a 120-degree heat index (wow!) This heat wave can be very dangerous, so drink plenty of water and stay hydrated. If you have to step out of the air condition, check out some of my favorite treats that keep me cool. Clayboys Hawaiian Shave Ice: This family operated cart has been on Bethesda Avenue, in front of Barnes and Noble, for about 11 years. With over 20 flavors including Blue Raspberry (the most popular), Cherry, Coconut, Lime, Grape, Banana, Strawberry, Watermelon, Bubble Gum, Lemonade, Vanilla, Tigers Blood (Strawberry and coconut mixed), Root Beer and Green Apple. A shave ice will set you back $2 for a small, $3 for a medium, and $4 for a large. You can choose up to two flavors per cup. Each serving also has one Swedish Fish inside for you to find! 

 Rita's Water Ice: Located in Gaithersburg, Rita's aims to satisfy your treat craving while keeping you cool. The Italian ice, which is Trans-Fat Free and made fresh with real fruit every day, is my favorite. The Lemonade flavor is cool and classic. Rita's features Sugar-Free Italian Ice, creamy Frozen Custard, Gelato, Blendinis, shakes and a Slenderita option, which is fat-free frozen vanilla custard. 16 Handles FroYo Shop: I am a huge fan of the 16-flavor option except for the green apple tart (not even a fan of the green apple jolly rancher).I experimented a little of each, thanks to the fantastic taster cups. I must say the graham cracker, banana, and pomegranate tart flavors were mouth-watering. 16 Handles provides your own fat-free setting of calcium, protein and probiotic goodness. At the toppings bar, you'll find over 40 possibilities, from fresh, wholesome berries to decadent sauces to choose from.: Dolcezza Gelato: Located on Bethesda Lane in Bethesda, Dolcezza Gelato serves handmade gelato is half the fat of regular ice cream and made fresh daily using locally sourced ingredients. Dolcezza also offers coffee and espresso drinks.
