I am always attracted to eating lighter during the summer months. Eating more fruit and vegetables. Specifically eating the ones that are in season for the summer months. When drinking I like lemon or cucumber water. Cooler foods prevail when the weather is hotter. You can make ice cream and ices. You can make your own cold teas and lemonade as well. These are all things that are comforting in a warmer climate.
February 17, 2018, 12:15 pm
That's right. Fruits and cold drinks are really good during summer season.
February 22, 2018, 10:31 pm
Eating ice cream aside, I also try to eat more fruit and vegetables when they are in season. Summer months are also the time when I can eat healthy after the onslaught of holidays for feasts from Christmas to New Year to Valentine's.

Fruit during the summer months is just amazing. For us, it's always strawberries and cream which the people in the United Kingdom just love. It just tastes so nice and the cream is so refreshing especially when it is hot outside. And what could be better than having an ice cream during the hot weather as well!

"I am always attracted to eating lighter during the summer months."
I definitely agree with you on this one.
I feel that the Summer time, especially on those
hot days, is a time for eating as light as possible.
With all the stews and comfort food of the Winter months, light Summer eating is honestly a welcome change. I also enjoy a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables during the Summer.
Not to mention that with the warm weather coming back, it's a great time to break out the grill for some lean cooking outside, and avoid frying everything indoors.
March 13, 2018, 5:03 am
I like popsicles, ice cream, and anything that will cool me off. All of these things will help in the summer to keep body temperatures to a reasonable level. It is important that you do this and it will work to give you what you want.
March 13, 2018, 11:39 am
I don't have any particular foods or drinks during summer. We're living in a tropical country, it's normal to us. But well, I like barbecue, and the street foods here, because during summer, a lot of street foods around the corner, and for drinks, ice cold beer every after work is enough for me.
February 17, 2018, 12:43 pm
I don't think that the hot summer days are near yet, haha. We just had -10 °C yesterday... and a lot of snow so the summer is at least a few months away.
But regardless, I usually don't eat anything heavy during summer or it makes me feel so tired and I feel without any energy. I most often love to eat light salads. The same goes for the drinks - my preferred drink would most likely just be some normal water with a few ice cubes!
February 17, 2018, 12:53 pm
Meat, junkfood and the oily food is expected to be reduced during these months. Some people can make use of the water based food. Like say salad, juice, ice cream etc. But apart from that there does not seem to be any much we can do. We can control things that may affect our health and that is pretty much about it.

Here in the Philippines halo-halo is very popular on hot summer days. It is composed of different fruits such as banana and melon. This drink is made of crushed ice which will then be mixed to the fruits and ice cream that will be placed in the halo-halo.
February 18, 2018, 10:01 am
I have never seen halo halo. So I am going to google it. I am not sure about banana though. In that season it can be extremely weight gain with that. And even more is the issue with other items. I have found watermelon, cantalope to be good options.
February 19, 2018, 7:10 am
Yes that's true. I'm in the Philippines too. Halo-halo and Ice Cream with many flavors are the best during summer season.
February 20, 2018, 1:56 am
I'm sorry for the misspelled thread title it should have been posted as:
"What do you like to Eat or Drink during Hot Summer Months."
I normally double check my posts. If there's only some way to edit it.
February 18, 2018, 12:06 pm
That's alright. That's considerable. Though we are particular here in using the correct grammar, spelling or punctuations but we are ought to commit certain mistakes and that's fine.
February 22, 2018, 10:35 pm
That's totally understandable. And people did read it and made the comments regardless of the typos and other stuff. Very few people pay attention to the part where there are lot of typos and other stuff. it seems like a good approach to use browser spell check though. No issues either way.
February 25, 2018, 5:21 am
During summer....well actually even winter season, I love drinking anything with shaved ice. I remember during my college days, I used to pass by 711 just to buy Slurpee. It's a shaved ice with different flavors and colors. I'll go for the largest cup enjoy while on the way home. I easily feels hot and get irritated, maybe that's why I love cold drinks. This summer, one way to cool down is to have one of those coolers.
February 18, 2018, 12:29 pm
You just brought back some awesome memories of the summer months of my childhood! There was a little shaved ice shack near my grandparent's house that we would walk to. It was just this timy place with the names of the different syrups available hand-painted on the side of the building. Inside, you could see the syrups lined up and labeled on the shelves, and there was the ice shaver. An old man and what I think was his daughter ran the place, and we would go up to the window for this treat served in little laminated paper cones. I remember my lips and tongue would get stained depending upon the flavor I ate--thanks for this memory!
March 18, 2018, 11:11 am
In terms of food, I am not usually a picky eater so no matter what the season is, I will eat any edible food that is available at the table. In terms of drinks during summer, I actually like any cold beverages like a soda, juice or any other drinks that freshen me up. I also like to make a halo-halo, which is composed of a mixture of crushed ice, ice cream, and fruits suchs as mango, banana, apple or any other fruit that you like to add. This drink is really delicious and satisfying, I am excited for summer because I will probably make this one.
February 18, 2018, 12:34 pm
I usually drink light cold drinks, such as iced lemonade, a cold beer or water. As for food, I don't feel like eating very much, my apettite drops during the summer, so I stick to fruits, such as watermelon, apples, oranges, bananas, sometimes I mix an icy milkshake of fruits. Also salads are a good healthy choice for the hot summer days, but once a week I feel the need to eat some meat, so I cook some grilled chicken breasts.
February 18, 2018, 12:53 pm
Who doesn't love ice cream during a hot weather?
It is always great to have some taste of different flavored ice creams during summer.
A mouthwatering and a cool refreshment.
February 19, 2018, 3:19 am
It's very hot here at the moment, the sun is shining like it's having a personal issue with us all. It's not been long I got back from work but I made sure to get 3 cups of ice cream to use and calm myself down. I'm going to upload a picture of how shinny the sun is now here.
February 22, 2018, 10:08 am
Yeah. Ice cream is such a great food to make you relax during a hot weather. Just make sure to eat it quickly as it might get melted by the heat of the sun. Hahaha. Enjoy!
February 22, 2018, 10:11 pm
Ice cream! I love trying various flavors of ice cream, alone or in combination, during the summer months, although my favorite flavor is pistachio.
February 19, 2018, 6:35 am
My personal favorite flavor is Rocky Road because I love chocolate and nuts. Anyway, whatever the flavor is, Ice cream is still the best during a hot weather.
February 22, 2018, 10:13 pm
I also love rocky road, but because of the marshmallows.
February 25, 2018, 8:05 am
Well, I guess you can never go wrong with chocolates regardless of what does it comes with.
February 26, 2018, 4:20 am
Well, I love marshmallows too. But the main reason why I love rocky road is because of the chocolate flavor ice cream!
March 5, 2018, 2:12 am
Of course, you can never go wrong with chocolate. Chocolate just makes every dessert better, and there are various innovations on chocolate ice cream that make it taste different each time.
March 5, 2018, 4:46 am
Exactly! There's a lot of chocolate dessert that is being innovated into something unique and tasteful. Whenever I have to choose a flavor, I always go for chocolate.
March 6, 2018, 6:52 am
Shakes, fruit juices or ice cream. Anything cold to ease the heat especially if you are in a tropical country. However I donāt really eat to much during summer so I can keep my body in good shape as it is also the beach season where everyone is heading to beaches.
February 19, 2018, 7:13 am
My fellow ice cream lover. It does the job perfectly well in cooling one's entire body system down once the ice-cream goes down one's throat, it chills off the heat that is already burning the body up to a very hot temperature. Ice cream and chilled soft drinks would do the trick 100% well in soothing body temperature in hot summer.
February 21, 2018, 5:16 pm
It is iced tea all the way for me. Ever since I was a kid my mother made sun tea and it is so simple, so cheap and so good that it just makes sense to me these days. Tea bags are about a dollar for a hundred and just throw it out in the sun for a bit and cool it in the fridge and you are good to go.
February 19, 2018, 12:02 pm
I really like sun tea in hot weather also, and usually with just a little sweetening and somelemon or lime in it. When we have pineapple juice, I like to add that (or mango nectar) to the tea for sweetening, and this gives the tea more of an exotic flavor than just plain iced tea has.
Ice cream and other sweet drinks might taste good; but the sugar actually causes the body to heat back up; so the cooling effect can then be replaces by breaking out into a sweat on your forehead.
I also like plain lemonade in the summer, and sometimes, I make what I call āgreen lemonadeā, by putting the chopped up lemons and some spinach or other greens in the blender and blending it until it is smooth. The greens give the lemonade a beautiful color, plus they add a lot of essential mineral that we sweat out of our body in hot weather; so it not only tastes great, but it also helps to nourish your body.
February 22, 2018, 4:00 pm
I love eating watermelon in summer as they help in quenching my thirst. I equally enjoy eating fruit salads while sitting on the soft sand at the beach watching the waves crashing. I also prepare lemonades, fresh juices, milkshakes, and smoothies during summer. I also love eating ice cream but unfortunately, I am allergic to lactose and so I can't have ice creams.
February 19, 2018, 12:45 pm
I love eating fruits too, especially since I live in a tropical country. In case you didn't know, there are actually lactose-free ice cream available there which taste quite nice so you can still have ice cream if you want.
February 26, 2018, 5:36 am
In our country in the Philippines, we like to eat street foods like barbecue, kwek-kwek and etc. We also like to drink halo-halo, buko juice and etc. during summer days.
February 19, 2018, 7:56 pm
"The hot summer months are coming" they write, as I look outside my window while the snow falls and the blisteringly cold Winter winds blow. Slow down there, cowboy, it isn't even March yet.
Haha, I'm just poking fun. Before we know it, Summer will certainly be here. When it comes to cooling down on a hot summer's day, I personally enjoy an ice-cold glass of green tea and a big slice of watermelon. I'm starting to feel a chill just thinking about them!
February 20, 2018, 6:07 am
A lot of fruits are in season during summer so we take advantage of the cheap supply to make fruit shakes and fruit-flavored ice candies. We also love to drink ice-cold water, iced tea, and iced coffee - anything with ice actually. I live in a tropical country so cooling down with ice-cold drinks is typical. Most convenience stores offer soft ice cream in cone during the summer months so this is one of the things to look forward to for those who love ice cream.
February 20, 2018, 8:13 am
Now that soft drinks have increased in price nowadays here in our country I won't be able to enjoy much of Coke or Pepsi. I was really into cola when I was a kid. Not until I became conscious about my health, I switched to eating plain yogurt mixed with banana or mango. Aside from it refreshes me, it is as well a good source of calcium.
February 21, 2018, 7:12 am
The conventional ice cream would be my favorite snack for the hot summer and also chilled soft drinks. This would help me keep in check how fast my body fluids get exhausted by the awfully hot weather. The ice cream would definitely do wonders in controlling how hot my body would feel after a long hot day.
February 21, 2018, 5:13 pm
Whoa! First thing which comes into my mind is ice cream. I'm an ice cream lover and I think it is the perfect food or snacks during summer. But I want to share with you guys that I'm a Filipino and here in our country, we have this kind of summer food which is also perfect during summer and most Filipinos love it and this is "Halo-Halo". It is called as "Halo-Halo" because literally, different fruits and ingredients are all being mixed in this summer food such as monggo, banana, sago, ube halaya, langka, pinipig, kamote, crushed ice, milk, etc. and to top it all, leche flan or even ice cream are being used as its toppings.
February 23, 2018, 12:42 am
During summer, hot weather, my kids love ice creams, yogurt, Vitagen, soups , salads and cold drinks to cool off their temperature. Most of them are sweeten so it is best to replenish with plain water at the same time.
February 23, 2018, 12:29 pm
In the summer days, I like to eat a different kind of salads, with potatoes and mayonnaise or tomatoes salad, etc. The hot days can be really hard to endure so I would like to drink a cold beer and relax under the sun.
February 24, 2018, 4:43 am
Living in a tropical country, there's so much fruits when summer comes. What I love most to drink is Watermelon juice and pure coconut juice. This coming holy week, it will be the best to spend it on the beach and eat a lot of barbeque and fresh fruits and juice. Ahhh... summer.... beach... I'm just lucky I live near the beach.
February 25, 2018, 9:23 am
I like iced melon shakes and coolers during hot months. Cant get enough of the refreshingly sweet taste and fresh smell of melons. Another one of my favorites is cold coconut juice which really hydrates me up, it's filled with electrolytes that restores my energy and besides it has a lot of health benefits.
February 25, 2018, 5:20 pm
When it comes to food I like to eat seafoods and vegetables during hot months, it cools my body temperature down. I limit my meat intake during hot months. Two of my favorite fish dishes are fish tofu with black beans and sweet and sour fish fillets. As for vegetables I love eating chopsuey and vegetable salads.
February 25, 2018, 5:27 pm
During summer I like to eat fresh fruits such as water melon and mango because it gives refreshment to our body and having more fluids means having a cooler feeling since it is a hot season already. I also like to eat cotton fruit because it taste good and yummy, it is perfect partner for salt or soy sauce. Lastly is that I want to drink cold refreshment such as mango shake or even ice cream to have a cool feeling during the summer heat. Having cold drinks or food give our body the temperature that we need during peak season in summer time. It is great to have and surely everyone would love it and enjoy it for a longer period of time.
February 26, 2018, 12:52 am
Lemonade is my favorite drinks during the hot days of summer. It is not only easy to make. All you have to do is squeeze a lemon, add one spoon of sugar syrup and mix in a glass of water. I also like to drink fruit juices like orange juice and sugar cane juice. Fruits are my favorite food for summer. I like to eat mango, watermelon, lychee, pears during the hot summer.
February 26, 2018, 10:15 pm
I like to eat a lot of ice cream and to drink milk shakes, lemonade, smoothie, fruit flavour water and anything that is cold or contain ice. I also eat many types of salad with tomatos and cucumbers or fruit salad because they are so refreshing and they cover your need of water.
February 27, 2018, 10:37 am
I love watermelon. Making this the perfect drink to serve at family-friendly barbecues and summer parties. My friends and I like going to beaches and enjoying the heat.This watermelon cooler is my all time favorite.
February 27, 2018, 11:45 am
I always go with Coka Cola. Always meaning even if its not summer I drink Cola. No water just Cola. In fact its been 28 years and counting that I exchange water with Cola. I'd like to believe most people are one with me during summer. When after being under the sun and feeling the hot whether. You go to the frig and get some ice cubes and open that cold bottle of Cola Coka then put them in a glass. Drink it bottoms up everything is forgotten by then.
February 27, 2018, 9:43 pm
It's summer again and the heat is on. I've started eating a lot of greens lately. Vegetables are more affordable and in abundance during the summer months. I like to feast on a variety of vegetables making it into several kinds of salads like chicken potato, cheese and chicken macaroni with lettuce, green bean salad to name a few. Eating chilled Vegetable Salads tends to cool down ones body temperature and it's also light but quite filling.
March 1, 2018, 12:09 am
I love ice cream. Maybe fruits and vegetables.
March 1, 2018, 1:55 pm
Well, you probably won't find a person who doesn't like ice cream, haha. Your post is quite simple, but the information in it is enough, you can just add some cold drinks to that, or at least some drinks with ice and you are set for summer.
March 18, 2018, 5:05 pm
Summer in our country is really hot.. I love eating halo-halo. It's our one of the best popular summer food. Halo-halo means mixed together, ingredients in this refreshing are many crushed ice, tapioca, coconut, beans, banana, mango, ube, jackfruit, leche flan and topped with milk, some topped it with a scoop of ice cream. Yummy!
March 4, 2018, 4:23 am
Hi Hexenbane lol saw your post, I'm eating Halo Halo at my brother's restaurant now the temperature is so hot and nothing beats Halo Halo with lots of shaved ice, rice crispies (pinipig) and sweetened beans and jackfruit (langka). Yummy ! Lol
March 6, 2018, 12:32 am
A shake!I love drinking shakes especially if it's mango and banana flavored. And I also love pairing my shake with a spicy Hawaiian pizza. If I don't have any of those I could get my self some ice cream too.
March 6, 2018, 10:12 pm
During summer or hot seasons I prefer Halo-halo which is a type of refreshment in my country in the Philippines with a combination of gulaman, nata de coo, mango and other fruits or sweeteners on it. It has an ice that gives the refreshing effect to anyone who would try to eat and drink them. It is really one of my favorite and I would love to have it over and over again. Another thing that I like during summer is the ice cream which is the rocky road or chocolate flavor because it really amaze me and feel contented for having it.
March 7, 2018, 8:39 am
I like halo halo, with Ice cream and lecheplan on the top. It's really refreshing. Best drink for summer. and it's really nutritious. I like the coconut milk in halo halo, instead of the normal evaporated milk.
March 7, 2018, 10:43 am
Another thing I like to eat during summer is 'Mais con Yelo' or Sweet corn kernels with shaved ice, milk and sugar, it's super refreshing, affordable and simple to make and very delicious too.
March 7, 2018, 3:28 pm
Ice cream? Yum Yum! You're making me hungry. I can't wait for summer. Though I don't live in a country that technically has a 'winter' but it has some really hot months. Temperatures are known to go to 40 degrees. You can hardly stand to wear any clothes because it's so hot. When it's really hot I like my lemon ice tea and a cold coke. I also live on fruits and Ice cream. The surprising thing about summer is you rarely feel like eating because it's so hot.
March 9, 2018, 2:54 am
In hot days I like to drink fruit shakes all day if I have to but, what I really love to do is to eat ice cream. Icecream is the best in the world because I can eat it in any season of the year but, on summer it's perfect. Also, drinking soda is great too but it can cause some disease in our body because it's not healthy.
March 9, 2018, 8:41 pm
During summer I love to drink cold drinks and eating icecream. I love drinking cold water because its refreshing and its pure natural. Water is really convenient also even if your traveling or your going to the beach for swimming but of course there are also drinks that could really satisfy our thirst. Softdrinks are great because you can really feel it in your throat but we should not always drink softdrinks because it can damage our kidneys. Cold natural juice and shakes are also great and it is healthy so it's safe and suit for summer drinks.
March 12, 2018, 4:33 am
I like to drink anything that has ice in it and it tasted good, be it an alcoholic drink or not, of course there are a lot of other drinks that I like, but I prefer most of them with ice. Speaking about food, I also like to eat light food, because when it's hot, the first thing you wouldn't like is being full and uncomfortable.
March 12, 2018, 4:17 pm
It's summer now here in the Philippines and it's super hot I'm the afternoon. I've been eating a lot of watermelon's and melons lately to keep me hydrated during the day. I prepared a lot of coleslaw salad and whenever I eat rice or make any kind of sandwich I put a lot of coleslaw in it. I think eating coleslaw makes my body cool down.
March 13, 2018, 4:05 pm
The other drink I really like is the buko pandan, It's everywhere in our country, it's really refreshing. Actually in our country, in the university belt, when I was still studying I always wait for the seller of that buko pandan to buy and always ask him about the ingredients because I think he has secret recipe for that.
March 16, 2018, 12:38 pm
I like Buko Pandan too but I like it served as a desert with Coconut Strips and the Pandan Flavored Gelatin along with cream and condensed milk served very cold. Eating it as a snack or desert during hot summer months is a good way to cool down.
March 19, 2018, 10:24 am
I drink lot's of juices during the summer, specially water melons. When it comes to meals seafood is the best for me. During hot days a way to cope up with the heat is drinking lots of fluids just to rejuvenate water lost due to heavy perspiration. Also eating a lot of protein helps the body in producing energy lost during activities. Definitely a good cold juice and a high protein meal will keep you up in the summers.
March 19, 2018, 3:14 pm
My mom visited earlier and brought some melons to our house, and I made it into a juice by grating the melon and adding some sugar and water with a lot of ice cubes.
I think I drank two liters of it from lunch until dinner. It's so refreshingly delicious.
March 20, 2018, 8:38 am
