Quick and Tasty Summer Snacks for the Whole Family
Heading into the summer months with the kids at home, there is probably only one other phrase we hear more often than “I’m bored”—it’s “I’m hungry!” Summer snacks and cool treats are in high demand, but they don’t have to be store-bought and loaded with unhealthy artificial ingredients. When the kids are home in the summer, you have more of a say in what they’re eating, and what they’re snacking on.
To help make decisions a little easier, we came up with a fun graphic with four alternative snacks for you and your little ones to enjoy on a hot summer day. Ditch the store-bought snacks and—in under a minute—enjoy some healthy, wholesome, and tasty treats.
This refreshing beverage takes only 20 seconds to make and has only three natural ingredients. Powdered pink lemonades have many processed ingredients and added sugars, making our Watermelon Limeade a much better alternative. This is the perfect drink for a hot summer afternoon—and your kids are sure to love it. Find the full recipe here.
Store-bought peanut butter does not even compare to the taste of a fresh jar of home-blended peanut butter. In just 50 seconds you’ll have tasty, family-friendly peanut butter made from only 3 ingredients—none of which are hydrogenated oils or sugar. Find the full recipe here.
Chocolate Almond Delight Energy Bites
If you’re looking for a healthier way to satisfy your sweet tooth, these Chocolate Almond Delight Energy Bites are the perfect option. They take only 50 seconds and are a much healthier alternative to coconut candy bars. And because they’re made with whole oats and flaxseed instead of corn syrup, you’ll feel good about every bite.

Mango Ice Pops
It doesn’t matter how old you are—a cold popsicle on a hot summer day is the perfect way to cool down.
