Summer is a great season for healthy snacks.

Fruit is juicy and fabulous and salads are a must have.

You can munch on a piece of fruit, chomp on a handful of nuts or chew a stalk of celery dipped in a nut butter but that all gets a bit same-y.

If you’re in the habit of eating between meals, here are some delicious bites you should be reaching for.

Not only do they taste great but they are healthier for you than sugary ice-pops and ice creams and far more interesting.2

Watermelon has to be the ultimate summer fruit.

It’s just so juicy and the water content makes it a great way to get in some extra hydration.

Adding the cucumber really ramps up the hydration factor and there’s something very special about the combo of sweet melon and salty feta.

2. Frozen Blueberry Bites

Craving something cool and refreshing?

There’s no need to reach for fat-laden ice cream when you can pop some frozen blueberries in your mouth.2

The beautiful blueberries covered in healthful Greek Yogurt really do taste like a treat.

You can try this recipe with grapes too.

3. Decadent Mandarin Slices

Chocolate lovers should be able to enjoy some guilt-free snacks too.2

As a major fan of dark chocolate I have seriously become addicted to these – you will too, so don’t make too many as it’s easy to over indulge.

The blend of sweet orange, bitter dark chocolate and salt is just a-ma-zing.2

4. Mini Caprese Skewers

If a food is calorific – like cheese – you have to be careful how much you eat.

Mozzarella is a good choice because it is filling and it doesn’t take a lot to feel satisfied.

These snacks are easily made and easily portable, although best kept in the fridge or a cool bag.2

And they look so pretty too.
