Apple Mint Granita
Granita (pronounced gruh-NEE-ta) is a lot like a slushee—and you don’t need an ice cream maker to make it! Just your freezer. And some patience. Kids Advisory Board member Hailey Fullenkamp recommends making it with apple cider and adding a squeeze of lemon for tartness.
Cold Cucumber and Avocado Soup
Gazpacho is the famous cold soup from Spain that’s usually made with tomatoes. But you can make all kinds of cold soups! This one is creamy-dreamy from the avocado and yogurt, with just a little kick from the scallions and (if you use it) the hot sauce.
It’s surprising to see a drink made with cucumbers, but just wait until you try it! The cucumbers themselves are refreshing and a little bit sweet, and with a squeeze of lemon, they make the perfect drink to welcome spring. BY ADAM RIED
