Summer is still here and we are constantly looking for some healthy snacks to help cancel out is such a treat and it can always be enjoyed on the go which is a real bonus when you’re busy with your summer activities. The best part about my summertime fruit treats are that you can enjoy fruit in so many different ways so it never feels like the same old boring snack. Today we are  sharing a couple different ways to enjoy fruit!

SNACK ONE: Frozen Grapes

We love freezing grapes overnight in the freezer. This helps give that cold refreshing Popsicle taste with all natural sugars.grapes

PRO TIP:

We also like to take these frozen grapes and throw them in my sangria or white wine to mimic ice cubes. It helps keep things super cold without watering down the drink.  Perfect for those warm summer nights!

SNACK TWO: Apple Cinnamon Ginger Chips

If you love cinnamon tortilla chips, then you will love these chips.

  1. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Peel, core and slice your apples a quarter inch thick (we like granny smith apples).
  3. Bring water to a boil on your stove.
  4. Once boiled add a cinnamon stick.
  5. Drop apple slices in an let boil for 5 minutes. Pat apples dry.
  6. In a separate bowl mix equal parts ground cinnamon, ground ginger and curry powder.
  7. Toss the apple slices in mixture and then pop them in the oven for about two hours or until you see the edges start to turn up.

Make a big batch ahead of time and you can have the most delicious sweet and crunchy snack this summer!

SNACK THREE: Strawberry S’mores

If you don’t have time to toast a marshmallow over the fire this summer you need to try this recipe. Try this at home! Here’s a  fruit fused s’more that is bound to cure your sweet tooth.

Start here:

  1. Take marshmallows and cut them in half and cut the tops off of strawberries.
  2. Take one half of a marshmallow and toothpick it in place on top of a strawberry.
  3. Melt milk chocolate in a bowl, and in a separate bowl crush graham crackers into crumbs.
  4. Holding the toothpick, dip the strawberries in milk chocolate and then dip them straight into the graham cracker crumbs.
  5. Once finished, refrigerate them and let them set for about an hour or two.
