Recipes to Stay Cool in West Phoenix Weather

Things are heating up, well to be fair they haven’t been cool in awhile, here in Phoenix, Arizona. We thought that now would be a good time to share some of our favorite recipes with all of you! Stay cool with some delicious cooling meals, snacks, and treats.  


If you’re reading this you’re likely interested in trying out something new! So let’s harness that creativity into something delicious, like making your own ice cream here at Acero at Algodon Center by purchasing an ice cream maker from our neighbors at Home Depot. Get your kids, nieces, or nephews involved and get them a Dippin Dots Maker or a Slushy Treat Maker from our neighborhood Target! 


Maybe you’re looking for something a little more natural? Try out a delicious fruit salad! We love this recipe from Delish. It requires simple ingredients that you’ll likely have in your Acero at Algodon Center kitchen. 

“In a small bowl whisk together honey, orange juice, and lemon zest. Add fruit to a large bowl and pour over dressing, tossing gently to combine. Chill until ready to serve.” Thanks to Delish for this amazing recipe, check out more of their summer time recipes on their website.


One of the best ways to stay cool in summer heat is to avoid using your oven! Which is why we recommend this No-Cook Zucchini Noodles recipe from Healthy Seasonal Recipes. This recipe can definitely help you stay cool, with refreshing ingredients like cherry tomatoes and pesto you’ll love whipping this recipe up on hotter days.

We hope that you enjoyed our recommendations this week. Trying out new recipes can be difficult, but you got this! Make sure you tag us on Instagram and Facebook if you try out one of our suggestions. Have a great Friday Phoenix and stay cool! We’ll be back next Friday with another blog.
