Summer should be delicious, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be healthy as well! Here are some fun tools to try out this summer to help you make healthy treats all season long!
A few years ago I started to notice that my sugar and junk food consumption was really starting to get out of control during the summer months. Kennedy and I would go out and play soccer for a little while, so we would naturally have to go inside and cool off with a popsicle. Then, we’d all take a drive to the beach and that would necessitate a trip to the ice cream store… and so on and so on. You know how it goes. We started to challenge ourselves a few years ago to learn how to make our own healthier warm weather treats at home and we’ve really got quite a repertoire now! It’s really great to be able to enjoy a fun treat together without feeling like we’re sacrificing our health afterward. I thought I’d put together a list of some fun tools that you can try out if you’d like to start making your own healthy treats as well. No matter what your treat of choice is, there’s something on here that will help you make it healthier!

So much better than drinking sugary drinks all summer!
Hint: If you make green juice with your kids and call it “dinosaur juice” they’ll go nuts for it!
So you can create a really fun and appetizing-looking fruit tray.
Here’s how I cut up my watermelon, but this little gizmo looks pretty fun, doesn’t it?
For making healthy smoothies and milkshakes!
So great for when you’re craving salty “junk” food, but still want to keep things as healthy as possible.
These are great for easy summer dinners as well as for potluck dishes!
