With temperatures increasing for the summer so are my taste buds for summer desserts. From popsicles to pie, my taste buds are flowing for some great desserts. I was asked by Weight Watchers® Ice Cream to create some unique tips celebrating the anticipation of the summer season so three super easy desserts that benefit both your hair and body.
Watermelon is a great option for summer thanks to its high amount of water content. It also contains a significant amount of vitamins A, B6 and C, antioxidants, amino acids, and potassium, which are both great for your hair and body.
Blueberries are one of my favorite berries to consume during the summer season. From salads to smoothies to cakes and pies, blueberries can be incorporated in a variety of dishes. Blueberries contain a variety of nutrients such as potassium, vitamin C and B6, which all are essential to hair growth. Blueberries also contain a significant amount of fiber, which helps lower cholesterol in the blood and is said to decrease the risk of heart disease.
Yogurt is one of my favorite desserts in the summer because it contains hair vitamins such as B-2 and B-12 but also a great deal of nutrients essential to the body such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Greek yogurt is one of my favorites as it can contain up to 15g of protein in one serving and low in calorie.
Bonus: So I know some of you might not like bake or make anything so if you don’t find any of these desserts appetizing simply head on over to your local Target and Walmart and grab a lower calorie and fat version of your favorite cold dessert. You can also find the Weight Watchers Dark Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream Bars, which I enjoyed in the hot summer temperatures. If Raspberry isn’t your thing, they have several other flavors to try.
