Blueberry parfaits are cool, but you already know our food game is on another level. Here are some summertime snacks that’ll cool you down and make you say “qué rico!”

1. Concha Ice Cream

Whhyyyy did it take humanity so long to think of this?! Concha ice cream might be the greatest food invention put between two slices of bread since the cheeseburger was created. Biting into this bright and fluffy pan dulce bread creation will give you SO. MUCH. HAPPINESS.

2. Bionicos

Some bionicos for this nice ass weather #bionicos

This fruit-filled snack will make you feel less guilty about drenching your plastic box in condensed milk because the toppings are *healthy* and may be nutritionist-approved like granola, raisins and dried coconut.

3. Mangoneada

Why is there no mango emoji, ? #mangoneada

A mangoneada is basically a raspado that said “Hey, girl, hey!” to chamoy. The spicy and sweet blend packs just the right amount of sazón for the summer.

4. Paletas

Summer isn’t summer without a paleta. It’s become a staple just like shorts and sandals chanclas.

5. Micheladas

Yess please!

Most people will tell you there’s nothing more refreshing on a summer day than an ice cold beer. Latinos will tell you there’s nothing more refreshing than an ice cold michelada. People are stepping up their miche game so much, some consider it to be more like breakfast than just a drink.

6. Raspado

Ice cream, thank you for playing, but you can take a seat. Raspado is on another level and doesn’t have you feeling bloated after. There’s just about any fruit flavor you can think of, like piña colada or nuez.

7. Horchata Frapp

Frappacino blended with horchata is the best of both worlds. Horchata blended with ice and whip on top? Yasss!

8. Gansito Frapp

Got that #gansitos frappe today ??

Just when you thought frapps couldn’t get any better, our favorite cartoon duckling decided to jump in the game. Café Calacas in the OC dreamt up this chocolate creation that is inspired by a Gansito cake. It’s the sweetest thing!

9. Fresas Con Crema

Sliced strawberries are boringgg, so you know Latinos needed to add SOMETHING to make them pop…and that something comes in the form of crema. Once these two are swirled together, your taste buds are like HEART EMOJI.

10. Tostilocos

We like Tostilocos because it doesn’t judge – it says ‘You do you.’ You throw in all of your favorite things and even though they’re super random, it somehow tastes amazing.

11. Fresada

Strawberry season is in full swing in the summer, and a fresada is a great way to take advantage of it. For this fresada, chopped up strawberries are blended with ice, then mixed with the real MVP – chamoy. Tamarindo candy pieces are layered on top and Tajín gets dusted on y listo.

12. Churro Chabet

Our Creamy Churro? Made with our Horchata ice cream & topped with warm churro bites! ??Tag your friends??

Elado in Los Angeles is where childhood dreams go to get a snack. The handmade ice cream shop has two types of chabet creations – chamoy and sweet ice cream. The churro chabet has pieces of churros that sit on a bed of ice cream – and for extra sweetness, cajeta ice cream is also offered! In case you missed it, we repeat: CAJETA.

13. Banana Cervantes

Banana Cervantes FTW! (Original ?: @jennymichellely)

Piña coladas or margaritas are the usual squad when it comes to cold cocktails, but BS Taqueria in downtown Los Angeles is giving you another option – the Banana Cervantes. Much like a piña colada, this drink is made with rum and served over crushed ice instead of blended.

14. Piñaloca

Piñaloca, lo pides lo asemos #cotysdeli #antojitosmexicanos

Does this need a description? Just looking at this piña with cacahuates japoneses, tamarindo and chamoy, your tastebuds are already drooling.

15. Fruta Picada

And of course, you can’t get through summer without this ?.

Brazilian MMA fighter Amanda Nunes made history at UFC 200. Not only is she the first Brazilian-born woman to win a UFC belt, she also the first openly gay UFC champion.

The 28-year-old defeated Miesha Tate by rear naked choke in the first round of their UFC 200 fight, making her the new owner of the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship belt.

But Nunes wasn’t always the Lioness of the Ring.

Nunes’ path to UFC champ started in Salvador, Brazil, where she first learned karate at the age of 4 years old.

Through years of training and hard work, Nunes’ career took her from Brazil to the U.S. In 2008, she had her first MMA match, which she lost by submission.

Amanda’s in white.

The loss didn’t deter her, and once she made the jump to the UFC, Nunes made the most out of it.

Nunes has won six out of her seven UFC fights and has won her last four fights.

With the help of her partner and trainer, Nina Ansaroff, Amanda shows just how far love can take a person, saying, “This girl, she helps me everyday. I love her.”

Nina was in her corner during the fight, and celebrated every moment.

“To have our very first openly gay champion shows you how far this sport has come.” – UFC vice president Dave Sholler.

“When you talk about all the great moments, having Amanda carry the flag literally and figuratively for the gay community is a seminal moment for our sport,” said Stoller to USA Today.

Nunes has also inspired the UFC to release a shirt with rainbow text featuring the phrase “We are all fighters.”

After her historic victory, Nunes said, “The most important thing is I’m happy with my life. This is the most important thing.”

Championships come and go, but love is always love.
