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!

One of my favorite things about summer is all the fresh berries available. Especially here in Louisiana, where locally grown strawberries are ruby red and juicier than any fruit you’ll ever try. It makes me even more thankful to live in a place with such tasty food!

Since summer is basically just a time for me to figure out how to eat the most amount of berries I possibly can, I have to get creative with recipes. My favorite? Smoothies! I love freezing fresh berries and throwing them in the blender for creamy, refreshing smoothies.

This Triple Berry Smoothie is one of our favorites right now! Berries are a great source of antioxidants, so we have three types of berries in here for the nutrition punch. And the tastiness. :) Greek yogurt adds protein and creaminess, and you can even add a handful of spinach for extra nutrients.

You and your kids will love this refreshing Triple Berry Smoothie for breakfast or a snack on warm summer days!
