My family and I have been trying a new routine in the evenings. We are having dinner a little earlier and then heading out together for a walk afterwards. We figure, why not take advantage of the extra daylight and the nice weather.

Problem is, is that we all come back a little snackish. Eating earlier and getting in more exercise means that we might need a little more fuel before bedtime. So, I've come up with a few treats that fit in with the new healthier us, and also satisfy our sweet tooth.

Chocolate dipped and frozen banana slices

Low fat frozen yogurt with nuts and fresh fruit

Smoothies

Watermelon kabobs

Fruit juice slushies

Angel food cake with fresh berries

Moms, what is your go too healthy summer evening snack?

frozen smoothies are a favorite....just freeze leftover smoothie.  I also like granitas when I have the time to make them, or homemade dairy-free/refined-sugar free ice cream.

 Dh likes a mix of nuts and raisins that I make. I usually have fruit or popcorn. The kid loves popcorn or pretzels.

DD does that here, and she usually makes too much.  She likes to freeze the extra, too.
