Budget Summer Snacks For The Whole Family

Budget snacks for Summer

I don’t know about your kids but my kids are always “hungry”. So, I’ve done some research and started experimenting. I tried to choose budget summer snacks that won’t cost an arm and a leg. These snacks are filling and nutrient packed and super easy to make. 

Our family loves slushie drinks. We love to cool off without all the calories you have in smoothies.

These Frozen Yogurt Blueberries are a simple, healthy snack that satisfy your sweet tooth big time.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • ½ cup yogurt vanilla, fruit-flavored, and/or dairy-free (smooth)
  • A few toothpicks

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Line a baking sheet or plate with parchment or wax paper. 
  • Place a berry on a toothpick and dip in the yogurt. Set on the parchment paper in a single layer, and repeat until all the berries are dipped. Freeze until solid, about 1 hour.
  • Eat immediately or transfer to an airtight container and store in the freezer.

NOTES

Instead of blueberries, you could also use grapes, quartered strawberries, or virtually any bite-sized fruit like diced mango. 

Frozen Grapes

Just buy a bunch of grapes and remove them from the stalks. Toss them in a ziplock bag and freeze. Easy as that!

What could be better than to set up your teepee or play tent outside on the lawn and joining the kids to snack and read.
