Healthy Summer Snacks!

Cara received products to review. No other compensation was given. All opinions expressed are 100% her own.

With all the fun picnics, bike trips and road trips we have been making this Spring/Summer, it is important that we have a lot of healthy snacks along for our three little children. Let me share with you my children's latest snacking obsessions!

For all you fruit lovers, get ready for the next best thing to fresh fruit - Crispy Fruit made by Crispy Green. Crispy Fruit is freeze dried fruit without any additives or junk added. Now, you can have the delicious taste, fiber, and nutrients without worrying about the challenges of carrying around fresh fruit. They have seven different varieties including: apples, cantaloupe, asian pears, mangoes, bananas, pineapple, and their newest addition - tangerine!

When my children tried these, they just went ga-ga for them! None of us had ever tried freeze dried tangerines, cantaloupe, or pineapple. They are delicious! Plus, they are very convenient, available in "Grab & Go" packs that provide one serving of fruit and 55 calories or less per bag. We love them! Find them online at or find them at The Fresh Market, Harris Teeter, ShopRite, Giant Eagle Market District, Earth Fare, Martin’s Food Markets, and numerous regional Whole Foods markets.

Our other favorite summer snacks are from Crum Creek. They carry all kinds of healthy snacks! My personal favorites are their Nibmor Daily Dose of Dark Chocolate and their Soy Nut Trail Mix. Their Soy Nut Trail Mix is perfect! They mix together organic, non-GMO soybeans, organic chocolate chips, organic sunflower seeds, organic pumpkin seeds, organic raisins, and sea salt. It is the greatest mixture of sweet and salty organic goodness I have ever tasted. Plus, it is jam-packed with nutrition! Lots of protein, fiber, and low in calories.

If you are in the mood for a little indulgent treat, then let me introduce you to my new favorite sweets, Clean Sweets. All of their treats are gluten-free, all natural, organic, non GMO, dairy free, soy free, casein free, caffeine free, free of processed ingredients, baked fresh from scratch with no junk added! That is a description list to be proud of! Thank you Clean Sweets for using great quality ingredients full of health, like avocado oil, coconut oil, coconut flour, almond flour and more!

I love their Skinny Mints - jam packed with chocolate minty goodness, Devil's Food Cake - soft and moist and chocolatey, and their Chewy Carob Coconut and Salted Carob Chip Cookies - both just as good as any chocolate chip cookie I've ever had! Here is a picture of the cookies. They take good care to ship them safely, so they are perfectly pleasing to your tastebuds.

Now that I got all your mouths' watering, go and pack a picnic and enjoy this beautiful Summer weather!
