I can’t deny I am not looking forward to summer, nor do I care for summer time. Out of all the seasons I think its the worse..maybe I blame the Texas heat and humidity for this. However I know my kids absolutely love summer- first because it means school is out and they are all together all day long and also we get to do more activities together like going to the neighborhood pool, visiting water parks and taking out our bikes around the street riding along with the neighborhood kids.
Without a doubt that’s one thing I do love- watching my kids have fun. Enjoying being a child- no worries at all. That carefree smile. How eager and excited they get for all that lets me know I’m doing something right with this parenting gig.
I know summer days bring a lot of hours of being outside and with more reason I have to stay prepared- because staying cool and refreshed is a must with kids.
One good snack I found recently and have become obsessed with is Outshine Fruit Bars, they are real fruit and simply delicious. Out of all the ice cream bars I have tried these are the best. Best part is there are many flavors to choose from.
I have pretty much tried them all in just a short amount of time (because I am honestly that obsessed with these fruit bars) but my number one pick is the Strawberry Yogurt Bars. I got an idea from their Instagram account and started eating them in the mornings or as an early day snack ( that’s when the cravings hit) so I start with drizzles of clover honey and top it with granola and almonds. It is so good, healthy, and low on calories (that’s if you are counting)
Although right now I sure am not. But once I get on that “working-out” train I know I can still continue to indulged on these with zero guilt. Nothing wrong with treating yourself and taking care of that sweet tooth.
My kids love the Strawberry flavor and my husband loves the Lemon and Mango flavors. One option of the many Outshine has and that I am currently dying to try is the Coconut flavor. I already got a few ideas in using them for some cold smoothies and cold refreshing Margaritas. We know all moms need this! You know you do!
I think the main reason I purchased these and decided to give them a try is because Outshine Fruit Bars are made with real fruit juice, mostly all are 60- 70 calories without any sugar added, and 0 grams of fat, how perfect is that? As a mom it really does feels good to find something that not only taste delicious to you but also to your kids.
They can actually enjoy it while you know they are actually snacking on something healthy, fresh, that’s made with real ingredients and real fruit.
