Summer is finally here! And while that means oodles of awesome things like lazy pool days, camping under the stars and long evening beach walks, it also means some not-so-awesome things like fat-filled ice cream, sugary slushy drinks and greasy burgers there to tempt you wherever you turn. But don't worry about typical summer treats like these ruining your healthy lifestyle and gorgeous bod, because I'm sharing my top 20 healthy summer snacks with you today!
You loved my 20 healthy summer dinner recipes post so much that I just had to follow it up with 20 healthy summer snacks! In the same way I like to mix up my usual dinner recipes when the seasons change, I also like to switch up my favorite snacks, trying out a few new recipes and making some old favorites.
As the temperature rises, I tend to switch out heavy flavors like chocolate, peanut butter and caramel for lighter, flavors like berries, citrus and coconut. Here are a few of my lighter, more refreshing healthy summer snacks that I just know you'll love. And yes, I know there are a few peanut butter- and chocolate-heavy desserts in there. But just because the sun is shining doesn't mean I don't crave my favorite flavors!
