Healthy summer treats!

Summer is a time where I’m looking to make easy treats that aren’t unhealthy. It can be difficult if you want to keep things fresh and satisfying, which is why I’m sharing three healthy summer treats you can make at home.

The “Doughnut” Bagel:

Yes. I want to eat doughnuts just as much as you do. But for a healthy (and pretty) option, you can make a bagel that looks like a doughnut. Trust me, it’s Instagram worthy.

You’ll need: 1 bagel thin (110 calories); 2 tablespoons of cream cheese (60 calories); food coloring and sprinkles. Mix one drop of food coloring with the cream cheese, spread onto the bagel and add some sprinkles. Yes, it’s that easy to make a pretty, low-calorie treat.

Banana “Ice Cream” Sandwiches:

Ice cream sandwiches can be high in calories. Why not try a mini, frozen treat that’s under 350 calories? You can serve these to friends on a hot day by the pool, or keep them in the freezer on hand when you’re craving a sweet treat.

BB71715-3

You’ll need: 1/2 of a banana (55 calories); 2 tablespoons of peanut butter (190 calories) and 2 Hershey chocolate pieces (100 calories). Cut the banana into thin slices and spread the peanut butter on one slice. Top the banana “sandwich” with another slice. Melt Hershey pieces in microwave in three 15-second intervals. Dunk sandwich into chocolate. Freeze for about 15-20 minutes.

Fruit Pops:

If you’re sick of having the same fruit salad every morning, it’s time to switch it up with a cool treat that is also sweet. With minimal calories, fruit pops are a fun way to spice up how you eat fruit (occasionally). You’ll enjoy this on a hot summer day.

BB71715-5

You’ll need: strawberries (25 calories), pineapple (40 calories) and two Hershey chocolate pieces (100 calories). Cut a few strawberries and pineapple pieces and put them on a toothpick. After you microwave the chocolate (same directions as above) drizzle it over the fruit. Leave them in the fridge for a cold treat with a sweet taste.
