Oh the summer sun is getting hot here in Arizona and we absolutely love it! One thing is for sure kids are hungry often in the summer and when they get to the point they recognize their hunger enough to stop playing its as if they behave like they've never seen food before in their life! I'm sure it's a mix between being very active and a little dehydrated between swimming in the pool and different outdoor sports. It's a delicate balance when it comes to 'cool down' treats. It's so easy to direct them to the box of ice cold Otter Pops frozen in the outdoor fridge- but lets be honest, I'm just wanting to keep their wet feet & dirty hands out of the kitchen!
My BIG goal for the summer is to not let my kids go too long in between HEALTHY snacks during these hot summer months not only to really cut down on those sugar loaded frozen popsicles BUT to make sure they are getting the nutrients they need during the days... especially because they are sweating a lot in this heat.
So I've been collecting ideas for easy, healthy & refreshing summer snacks for these sizzlin' days ahead. One thing I really want to focus on is easy enough for my kids to help prepare & easy as a grab & go as well.
These YOGURT COVERED FROZEN GRAPES are delicious and so refreshing & easy!
Below is the step by step instructions on how we prepared this snack. The kids are absolutely loving them! They actually are reminding ME about their HEALTHY snack time! One bag of grapes and one single serving of yogurt sure goes a long ways. I can get at least a dozen half cup servings of frozen yogurt grapes out of one batch, if not more.
I hope you'll MAKE & ENJOY!
