Summer in New York always reminds me of an old song called Summer in the City by The Lovin Spoonful. Way before my time but I'm guessing it must have been played on the radio pretty much every summer for it to be so ingrained in my head. I never remember all the lyrics but the first few lines are "Hot town, summer in the city. Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty. Been down, isn't it a pity. Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city." And all I can say is...yup!
For my more sensible regular treats I go for frozen fruit bars and my current favorite is Fruttare. It comes in 9 flavors and I usually have at least a couple in the freezer but I'll admit a slight summertime obsession with mango.
For me it's important that these bars are made with real fruit and, let's face it, the fact that the mango bars are only 60 calories each is a big selling point. But all the flavors make reasonable treats, ranging from 60 to 140 calories depending on the flavor. I'm pretty much hooked.
A long hot day out, girlfriends over afterwards for a bite to eat and a cool drink and the easiest dessert treat ever. Big bowl of ice, Fruttare frozen treats and everyone can help themselves. Enjoy!
