It's hard to believe, but summer is coming, y'all! I should know too since my birthday falls on the first day of summer. As school is letting out and it's starting to get warmer and warmer out, I'm craving the good stuff. The cold stuff. The stuff that's going to chill me out in the dreaded Texas heat. Not only that, but I want something that's going to satisfy everyone's summer snack cravings. A little sweet. A little salty. And a whole lot of cold.
These Skinny Late Night Summer Snack Ice Cream Bites are a perfect fit. They cover the list of wants and needs with their variety of sweet, salty, crunchy and cold. There's seriously something for everyone in there and it's all good amazing stuff! I see these being great for late night summer snacking in their perfectly portioned 3-4 bites of ice cream heaven.
Be sure to keep a look out for the upcoming Snack Better Together Sweepstakes coming May 30. You can enter the sweepstakes by sharing snack stories and submitting photos of yourself, your family or friends in a snacking moment using hashtag #SnackSnapShare. If I were to enter, the photo above is the photo I would use for the contest!
What's better about these bites is that you can make them ahead and have them on hand to share the love of snacking with friends and family all summer long! They are perfectly keepable in the freezer to have ready to nosh on when one of those summer cravings strikes. They soothe those snack desires without leaving you feeling guilty at all!
After all, who doesn't love the perfect blend of sweet, salty, crunchy and cold? I know that I sure do. And you better believe that I will have plenty of these on hand as we roll over into the summer season.
