Fix Me A Snack

A blog created by a mom who got sick of feeding her kids crackers and ice cream

I don’t know about you, but in the Northeast things have been getting pretty toasty lately. We’ve been lessening the blow by eating as many local strawberries as possible and lounging excessively.

The picture of the precious little frozen fruit bits above was taken last year. In a couple weeks it will be reappearing in our freezer. It was a delightful little healthy snack for the kids last year. Nothing beats a frozen treat on a hot summer day. And this one has no added sugar or anything other than fruity goodness. It looks like I used green apples, blueberries, raspberries, nectarine, and sweet plum.

The only problem with this snack is that it requires a little planning in advance as the fruit needs at least four hours, preferably over night, to harden. Spread them out on a tray in a single layer and place the tray in your freezer. After the fruit  freezes completely, store it in an airtight container.

Also, I wouldn’t feed this to a kid under three years old. The young ones should probably stick with larger frozen items like chocolate-covered banana pops, orangsicles,¬†or frozen fruit on a stick.

  1. Love this idea! I will be trying this one really soon for my boys. It looks so fun and special.

    I’ve been known to make “kiddie sangria” for my three-year-old when my husband and I are having the real thing. I just pour fruit juice (watered down) over a mixture of ice and fruit. The fruit chunks I use look really similar, so I could make a whole bunch for snacks and then just dump some in for drinks.

    Excellent idea.
