love vegetablesHere are four delicious and easy-to-make snacks that are perfect for summer

  1. Instead of chips, try munching on asparagus. It’s delicious raw or lightly steamed. Throw some in your lunch box for a snack or use a few stalks to dress up your next vegetable platter
  2.  For a refreshing smoothie, combine a banana with 1 cup frozen berries and 1/2 cup 0% Greek yogurt in a blender. Process until smooth.
  3. Got a ripe banana? Peel, then roll it over a tablespoon or 2 of roasted sunflower seeds or chopped peanuts, walnuts, or other nuts. Wrap in wax paper or plastic wrap and freeze overnight. Eat it like a popsicle.
  4. Combine 1 cup chopped pineapple with 1 frozen banana and 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut water in a blender. Process until smooth.
