Summer is a time to be enjoyed. Slow, warm days require a slow, warm disposition and a chance to take it all in. But the weather isn’t the only thing you should slow down to appreciate during the summer. You should also take a step back and enjoy some delicious snacks. Summer is a great time to enjoy fresh fruit, cold and refreshing treats, and easy to make snacks that can energize you while you enjoy the sun and take advantage of the long days. Here are some great healthy snacks to enjoy while you’re enjoying days at home during the summer.
The tinkling music of the ice cream man is a common and nostalgic sound. But when your kids (or you, yourself) go running headlong to buy a sugary treat from these trucks you may have a moment of regret when realizing that ice cream and food coloring may not be what you want your family to be eating very often. So, to beat the heat and still enjoy a tasty treat consider making your own popsicles in the freezer. Freezer popsicles can be easy to make and are a great healthy alternative to the ice cream truck. Here are two “cool” recipes for delicious homemade popsicles: peaches and creamsicles and fruit popsicles.
