Summers are already here with the sun shining bright and longer days. There is a killer to this unbearable heat and that is watermelon.

We all love watermelon, don’t we? It is 92% water so naturally, it keeps us hydrated. It also prevents inflammation and ensures the health of our eyes, protects our skin from sunburn and helps in digestion.

Other than watermelon there is one more thing that soothes us in the summers. It is none other popsicles. Our love for popsicles is overwhelming to the point of obsession.

Popsicles are prone to give itchy and sore throats due to a lot of artificial flavors and preservatives. Which is sad because then we can’t really have all those yummy ice lollies.
