How to make a delicious, healthy, summer snack.

Oh, how I love when the days are longer, the air is warmer and the skies are bluer! I don’t know about you, but at this time of year, the last thing I want to do is stand in the kitchen and cook something hot. So, here are a few ideas for easy snacks that are cool, refreshing, and (don’t tell anyone) healthy!

Blueberry Slush – my personal favorite because it takes about 30 seconds to make and is delish!


Frozen blueberries

Rice or almond milk

Put blueberries in a bowl
Cover with almond milk
Let it sit for about 15 seconds, then begin to stir
It will start to turn slushy!
Grape DeLite

Big, red, rinsed grapes
Local honey
Goat cheese
Crushed walnuts

Put a little honey on one plate
Spread the goat cheese on a second plate
Spread the walnuts on a third plate
Take each grape and roll it through the honey, then the goat cheese, then the walnuts.
Pile them onto a plate
Savor each bite!

Fresh, organic berries of your choice: blueberries, raspberries and strawberries work well!
Organic orange juice
Vanilla, coconut milk ice cream

Mix your berries together
Slightly mash them with a fork, a mortar or briefly blend in the blender/food processor
Sprinkle in a few tablespoons of orange juice and mix well
Scoop your ice cream into a bowl and cover with the berry mixture
