As we all know too well, July in Florida can be hot! As temperatures soar to an average of 90-92 degrees Fahrenheit, we’re all looking for good ways to cool down and enjoy the season. What better way than with delicious good eats at the best brunch spots around the state? Read on for a few Peach Valley picks that are perfect for these hot summer days.
We All Scream for Ice Cream
There’s a reason that ice cream is a summertime staple. This treat is the perfect way to cool down while enjoying a deliciously-sweet dessert! With American ranking as one of the world’s biggest consumers of ice cream (second only to New Zealand), ice cream’s popularity is no secret. Plus, vanilla ranks as our top favorite flavor – perfectly simple and sweet to explain its mass appeal. So, especially as we gear up to celebrate National Ice Cream Day this July 18th, grab a scoop today!
But if you don’t feel like chasing after the ice cream truck when you hear those familiar jingles, don’t worry. We make getting a serving of sweetness super simple, whether that’s adding a creamy scoop of vanilla ice cream to a serving of Housemade Peach Cobbler or enjoying a chocolate-y delicious Brownie Sundae.
Get a Caffeine Fix with Iced Coffee
Many of us can’t start the work day without our morning coffee boost. But a piping hot cup of joe isn’t always in your best interest on a sweltering summer day. So, that’s why we love making a seasonal switch to tasty iced coffee concoctions in plenty of different sweet flavors. And, we’re not alone – studies suggest that consumption of iced coffee has grown in the past four years by 19%. Here at Peach Valley, we recognize a top breakfast fan favorite – our Café Iced Caramel Coffee comes piled high with whipped cream and a caramel drizzle to satisfy any serious morning sweet tooth.
Make It a Sweet Tea Summer
In the same way that hot coffee doesn’t always fit the summer bill, hot tea might also not be your first pick for summer heat. But the South has a particular summertime staple – sweet tea! Pairing perfectly with any meal – or even just perfect for sipping on the front porch – any true Southerner knows their sweet tea and what makes this beverage so special. Grab a glass that goes perfect with any Peach Valley brunch. Or, try our Peach Tea for a delightfully fruity twist!
Fresh Fruit is Always Fantastic
On hot days, it’s important to stay hydrated. But, have you considered that you might be eating some of your necessary water content each day? Fruits are among some of the most hydrating foods – with strawberries coming in at around 91% water, peaches close to 89%, and oranges at 88%. There’s a reason that fresh fruit is a summer favorite. Brighten up your breakfast with a Seasonal Fruit Bowl or our Superfood Breakfast (packed with banana, blueberries, and strawberries), or keep lunch fresh and light with a Summer Salad – featuring blueberries, strawberries, and mandarin oranges.
