Are yours kids sweet snackers or savory snackers? Do they reach for fruit and cookies, or nuts and chips? One thing that my kids definitely inherited from me is their sweet tooth – they can never turn down a piece of chocolate! But they also love their salty crackers with edamame hummus.

It’s great with chips as an afternoon snack, packed in a lunch box or as a topping for grilled chicken or tacos!

If you haven’t already noticed, we’re a family who loves hummus. Anything from buffalo chicken hummus dip to BLT hummus cups to even cooking chicken in hummus. If there’s a way to add hummus to it, we’re going to do it!

One reason I love hummus so much is that it’s a convenient, healthy snack that I feel good giving my kids. It’s full of protein and nutrition from chickpeas, plus it’s vegetarian and gluten-free, so it’s very allergy-friendly. I love prepping hummus cups at the beginning of the week with a few spoonfuls of hummus dip and fresh-cut veggies for a snack that’s quick to grab when we’re running out the door!

I like to keep a couple containers of our favorite hummus on hand at all times for snacking emergencies, but when I have time, I love to make my own! You can make it whatever flavor you want and control the amount of ingredients you use. I think it just tastes better, too. ;)

I love using sun dried tomatoes in my cooking, so of course I had to make a hummus version. This sun dried tomato hummus is full of flavor! It’s the perfect appetizer to serve at dinner or a party, or a great healthy snack to have on hand for you and the kids to enjoy. Serve with crackers or veggies for the ultimate dip!

Cool off this summer with a Watermelon Icee! You only need one ingredient for this fun frozen treat that the kids will love on a hot day. (gluten-free, grain-free, vegan/vegetarian, and paleo)

Is there anything better than juicy watermelon in the summer? My kids and I look forward to this time of year so we can dig into a big bowl of watermelon on hot days by the pools. I don’t think there’s any other fruit more juicy and refreshing!

We love making this Real Homemade Icee in the summer, so I wanted to try something similar with watermelon. The result? A naturally sweet, delicious treat similar to an icee or a slushy. The best part is that you only need one ingredient: frozen watermelon! Oh, and water – but that doesn’t count. ;)

I also love this recipe because there’s no added sugar, just fruit. I always try to give my kids treats that are tasty but also healthy. This easy watermelon icee is definitely one of our go-to snacks for the summer!

After making the watermelon icee, you’ll want to serve immediately as it will melt. IF you have leftovers (which we never do), you can return the extra mixture to an airtight container and store it in the freezer. When you want to enjoy it, just pop it out for about 5 minutes to thaw. Then dig in!

Yes, your breakfast can taste like dessert! This Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie Bowl is creamy, sweet, and a healthier way to indulge your sweet tooth.

I’m so excited to share this smoothie bowl recipe with you for a couple reasons! First, you know how much I love chocolate, especially paired with peanut butter. Is there a combination more delicious? I think not! My kids can never say no – and neither can I. ;)

Second, this recipe is from my friend Alison Lewis’ book 200 Best Smoothie Bowl Recipes. Yes, 200 recipes! Smoothies are a great way to pack in lots of fruits and veggies in your family’s diet, and smoothie bowls make them even more fun. They’re super creamy, and you can top them with all your favorite toppings. A great interactive meal for kids!

The big difference between a normal smoothie and a smoothie bowl is the texture. You want your smoothie bowl to be super thick – almost like soft-serve ice cream! Between the thick texture and the chocolate-peanut buttery deliciousness, this peanut butter cup smoothie bowl will have you thinking you’re enjoy dessert for breakfast.

200 Best Smoothie Bowl Recipes has every smoothie recipe you can think of, from kid-friendly recipes, green creations, dessert bowls, and even coffee and tea bowls for those of us that need our caffeine. Some of the recipes include Upside Down Apple Pie Smoothie Bowl, Green Coconut Smoothie Bowl, and Peach Paradise Smoothie Bowl. Can you say YUM?!

Smoothie bowls couldn’t be simpler to make. All you have to do is throw your ingredients in a blender, blend, and pour into bowl. You could even prep some DIY smoothie freezer packs ahead of time! Of course, I’d argue that the best part of a smoothie bowl is the toppings. The possibilities are endless! For this peanut butter cup smoothie bowl, we love banana, chocolate chips, chia seeds, and a touch of extra cocoa powder. I can never say no to more chocolate!

All of the recipes in 200 Best Smoothie Bowl Recipes are great for breakfast or snacking, and I know your kids will love them. Be sure to get your copy on Amazon!
