Frozen Watermelon and Lime Yogurt Bites – This cool, refreshing, and healthy treat is perfect for grownups and kids alike, especially on those long, hot summer days!
Today’s recipe is one that was written with my sweet little grumpy, teething 1-year-old at heart. The frozen watermelon bites soothe his poor, sore, little mouth.
My family just loves how he enjoys noshing on them when he’s unhappy. They restore his good mood, along with the good mood of the rest of the household, if you know what I mean…
That said, these Frozen Watermelon and Lime Yogurt Bites aren’t just perfect for little teething monsters. They’re cool and refreshing for big kids and grownups, too!
The summertime is one long snack fest for my older son. I swear, every hour he’s like, “Mom, can I have a snack?” I get tired of providing snacks ALL DAY LONG!
It’s tempting to only reach for processed, convenience foods to satisfy his ravenous summertime appetite. Aside from being bad for him, however, the problem then is that I’m tempted to eat all that junk food, too.
These Frozen Watermelon and Lime Yogurt Bites can be made ahead of time and stored in the freezer in a ziplock bag. When you or the kids feel a snack attack coming on, just grab what you need and enjoy!
It’s a great way to cool off on a hot summer day. It’s also a great way get some more fruit into your family’s diet. The protein from the Greek yogurt serves as a perfect pick-me-up, too!
Whether you’re teething (hopefully that’s not a problem for you any more), or maybe you’re a growing kid, or an adult whose trying not to grow any more, this snack is just what you need for your summertime munchies!
