Stay On Track With Healthy Summer Snacks:
Banana Ice Cream: It looks and tastes like ice cream without all of the added sugar and calories! Blend up 2 frozen, ripe bananas with 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and then freeze for 3 hours. Serve with some mini chocolate chips or sugar-free chocolate syrup!
Mini Caprese Salad Skewers: These are a great appetizer for a party or to have as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up! With some grape tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella, you’ll have yourself one scrumptious snack!
Cherry Lime Slurpee: Who doesn’t love an ice cold drink on a hot day? This all-natural slurpee is sure to be a hit with the kids! Simply blend 1 pound of frozen cherries, 1/4 cup fresh lime juice, 3 tablespoons of honey and 4 cups of ice. Serve and enjoy!
Baked Parmesan Zucchini Sticks: A great way for your kids, or you, to get in one of your daily servings of vegetables! If you have 30 minutes to spare, whip up a batch of these zucchini sticks!
Apple and Peanut Butter Sandwich: An apple, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter and 1 tablespoon of chocolate chips = one deliciously sweet and salty treat.
Frozen Banana Bites: Slice up 2 bananas, freeze for an hour, then assemble with some peanut butter and raspberries. This is the perfect bite-size snack to satisfy your sweet tooth!
Cucumber Hummus Cups: Two ingredients: hummus and cucumbers. It really couldn’t get any easier! Cut the cucumber in 1/4 inch slices, scoop out the seeds (be sure to leave a layer so the hummus doesn’t go through the bottom) and top with your favor type of hummus!
