Super Easy Snack Recipes For The Family

1. Fruits

Fruits are wonderful to have as a summer snack. Many fruits are in season during this time, so the fruit is often delicious and less expensive. You could have some fresh red strawberries, some delicious yellow bananas, some juicy oranges, sweet melons, or whatever other fruits you would like. These are often not too high in calories and many of them have disease-fighting vitamins and minerals. You can make rainbow fruit kabobs or healthy smoothies for a delicious snack!

It is good to have a variety of fruits. A lot of them are very easy to carry along such as a banana. You can stick some grapes or just an apple in a bag. In addition, you can consider dried fruits; however beware of ones that have a lot of added sugar because that can make them far less healthy.

2. Vegetables

Vegetables can make a wonderfully healthy snack for summertime. You can bring a bag of carrot sticks with you for a quick snack. You could eat a red ripe tomato. You could eat some broccoli or cauliflower or munch on a salad. Most vegetables have few calories but they are filled with healthy vitamins and minerals. Many of them lower your chances of getting serious conditions such as cancer, heart disease, strokes, and more. If you want to dress it up a little bit, you can add a little fat free dressing as a dip to go along with it.

3. Yogurt

Yogurt can make a delicious snack for the summer. You might want to look for the low-fat versions. You can get Greek yogurt as it’s also higher in protein. There are many different flavours of yogurt, and some of them will taste like dessert, but be far healthier. The yogurt tubes can also be convenient because some of them allow you to freeze them and then you can take them out and eat them when they thaw.

4. Popcorn

Popcorn can make a great snack that is far healthier than fatty and fried potato chips. Of course, that does depend on you getting a healthy version as compared to one that is cooked in unhealthy oil and is full of fat and calories. You can air pop some popcorn for a tasty and healthy summer snack.

5. Homemade Popsicles

There is nothing better than a homemade popsicle for an easy and refreshing treat to help you cool down from the summer heat! Store-bought popsicles contain high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavours. By making them at home, you can incorporate fresh fruits, yogurt, or natural fruit juices for a delicious taste! It’s definitely a healthier alternative since you are adding more nutrients without using refined sugar.
