A filling, frozen summer snack

Nothing says summer like snacking on watermelon, strawberries, and popsicles between dips into the water. Our fruit consumption really goes through the roof during the summer months, which I mostly love. The only part I don’t love is that fruit isn’t very filling, so it will leave kids (and adults) constantly in search of another snack.

That’s where adding some fat to a snack comes in. It’s filling, makes food taste good, and helps your body absorb fat-soluble vitamins. To make the frozen treats above, we followed these instructions.

  1. Take about a cup of coconut oil and melt it on the stove.
  2. Take about a half cup of strawberries (we used frozen ones) and blend them until smooth in a food processor or blender. You may need to add a little liquid and/or thaw the fruit if you’re using the frozen kind.
  3. Add some honey to taste.
  4. Pour them into silicone molds (we use these) and pop them into the freezer for about 15 minutes.

Enjoy!
