5 Frozen Summer Snacks Kids Will Love

Tired of dishing out doe to the ice-cream man only to have your toddler bouncing off-the-wall after eating his or her favorite frozen treat? Break the cycle and try making these fun and simple snacks with your children:

1. Frozen Grapes

A favorite frozen treat of American Idol Kelly Clarkson, this simple snack is a crowd pleaser. Just pick out your favorite fresh grapes (preferably seedless) and toss them in the freezer. A few hours later you have a bite size snack perfect for satisfying the cravings of adults and kids alike! (Not recommended for younger children unless closely supervised). 

2. Frozen Juice Pops

Pour a mixture of your kids favorite 100% fruit juice into small paper or plastic cups. Place tin foil over the cups and poke a popsicle stick through the foil. Place in the freezer until frozen, and enjoy! 

3. Frozen Yogurt Pops

Similar to the frozen juice pops, but with a different spin. Poke spoons into the top of your kids favorite yogurt cups and place in freezer. I have found that light or whipped yogurt cups work the best, though kids seem to enjoy all varieties of this treat.

4. Fruit Smoothies

Blend your child’s favorite fruits with a little milk, yogurt, and ice cubes for a healthy and refreshing summer snack!

5. Banana Pops

This one may give frozen grapes a run for their money. Start by slicing a banana in half and putting a popsicle stick in each half. Next dip the banana in some melting chocolate and roll in some fruit, cereal, or both! Place the bananas on a tray of wax paper and freeze. Some popular “toppings” for this treat include raisins, shaved coconut, and rice krispies cereal.
