Refreshing On-the-go Summer Snacks

While running errands and attending summer events and games, it’s more important than ever to ensure you’re taking care of yourself. That means proper nutrition and hydration.

Here are some tips for summer snacking on-the-go:

Smoothies

Smoothies are fast and easy to make, filling, and travel well. When all you need is a few ice cubes and a mixture of your favorite summer fruits and veggies, it doesn’t get any less complicated than an on-the-go smoothie.

Tip: For an extra boost of nutrients and flavor, you can substitute filtered water with your favorite coconut water.

Frozen Fruit

Many in-season fruits like grapes and cherries can be frozen and bagged for a refreshing and cool treat while traveling.

Tip: Pre-slice melons and insert an ice cream or wooden craft stick tip prior to freezing for a mess-free snack. This is especially helpful for kids!

Fruit-Infused Water

Fruit infusion water pitchers are an inexpensive way to make naturally flavorful water at home and use for travel. Fresh cut pineapple, strawberries, or citrus slices work best, and frozen fruit can be added to your to-go cup to keep you cool and maintain flavor.
