Summer and kids and tasty treats all somehow go together. This summer give you kids snacks that they will really love. Here are some great ideas to get you started, and they are all simple to make:
What is better than a tasty summer snack? How about a tasty summer snack that is not only healthy but fun to make for the whole family. All you need is elastic cord, a yarn needle, and some fruit, such as strawberries, blueberries and grapes. You can also mix and match the fruit, creating unlimited variations.
Fruit and Cheese Kabobs
Who says that kabobs have to be made from meat and vegetables? You can use the same fruit you used to make the necklaces. Just add sticks and cuts of cheese. Like with the necklaces, there are endless variations and they are fun to both make and eat.
Like with kabobs, you can think out of the box when it comes to pizza, too. Instead of dough use watermelon or other types of melon. You can get really colorful with these pizzas. Try to come up with unique combinations that will both look good and taste good.
There is no rule that says pizza must be round. Instead, put the ingredients — bread, cheese, pepperoni, olives and whatever else — on sticks. Then, let you kids dip them into warm pizza sauce.
If you have a blender and a little time, you can make your kids are real special treat: a watermelon slush. First, put some seedless watermelon into a blender, and add lime juice and just a little coconut sugar. Then, freeze the concoction for about 5 minutes, using a fork to keep the pieces separated.
If you really want to see your kids’ faces lit up, serve them some raspberries with whipped cream stuff inside them. This is yet another treat that is super simple to make and tastes great.
There is no law that says that you can only put ice cream or ices on a popsicle stick. Just cut up some watermelon or other types of melon and add some tongue depressors. Not only is this a fun and tasty snack, but it could not be easier to make.
Like fruit pizza, apple nachos is another summertime recreation of a beloved food. Instead of tortilla chips, cheese and salsa, pour some peanut butter and chocolate over freshly cut apples. Your kids will eat them up.
Another interesting nacho variation is using vegetables instead of chips. Cut up some large bell peppers, and add cheese, sauces and whatever else comes to mind.
Frozen Grapes or Blueberries
Instead of ice cream and ices, try giving your kids some frozen grapes or blueberries. They are just as tasty as ices and a lot healthier. What’s more, they require no effort at all.
Ice Cream Bags
Why just serve your kids ice cream on a cone or in a cup when you can serve it to them in a Ziploc bag for easy carrying. The bag will also keep the ice cream fresh.
