Now that summer is finally making an appearance (fingers crossed she stays for good), and the weather is changing from dull and grim to sunny and warm, our daily diets will start to change too. No longer do hearty, warming meals and snacks make up the bulk of our day. Now we want fresh, fruity and exciting meals that ooze everything we love about the season. Colourful, bright and fresh goodness!
The moment the sun comes out to play, we want healthy snacks that are not only going to keep us going for longer, but are equally healthy and nutritional. With this in mind, we have come up with a few healthy and tasty summer snacks that are super simply to make, and won’t pack too many calories.
Each one can be made with only 3/4 ingredients, no specialist equipment and put together as quick as 1, 2, 3, which means you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time out in the sun. They are even the type of treats perfect for a friends summer BBQ or picnic in the park.
