Snack Smarter This Summer: Try These 6 Recipes

Last Update: September 27, 2022

Snacking is an essential part of summertime—whether you’re taking treats to the beach, on a road trip, or just to your backyard, having a little something to eat makes the simplest moments feel special. We’re rounding up our favorite summer snacks that you make at home.

Air-Fried Veggie Chips

If you’ve been let down by veggie chips in the past, these recipes warrant giving them another chance. A serving will not only satisfy cravings while keeping things keto, but you’ll also enjoy loads of flavor—thanks to foolproof spice mixes like garlic and herb or smoky barbecue.

Air-Fried Duck Fat French Fries

Who wants perfectly crisp and golden French fries flavored with rich duck fat? This easy recipe comes together in two batches, so keep the first tray warm in a warm oven while you finish the rest.

Spicy-Sweet Sriracha Kale Chips

Making your own kale chips might seem a bit intimidating, but with just six ingredients and a seven-minute cooking time, it really couldn’t be easier. Plus, these chips are leagues beyond anything you’ve tasted before.

Chocolate, Almond Butter, and Jam Cracker Sandwiches Recipe

The classic combination of peanut butter and jelly gets an upgrade in these snack-sized sandwiches. Adults and kids alike will love the chocolate-covered bites of crunchy gluten-free cracker, almond butter, and raspberry preserves. Have even more fun with it by letting your little ones get involved in the kitchen!

Tropical Green Ice Pops

In the summer heat, there’s nothing like an ice pop to cool you down. But your icy treat doesn’t need to come loaded with sugar and artificial colors. These creamy, fruity pops are loaded with heart-healthy fats and vitamins A, C, E, and iron—with no hint of spinach, we promise.

Popcorn With Dried Fruit and Melted Almond Butter

With only about 100 calories per serving, popcorn makes a satisfying snack that won’t ruin your dinner. To your freshly popped popcorn, try by mixing in dried cranberries, figs, and cherries, then drizzling melted almond butter on top.
