For us, this summer has been about getting back to basics. With the kids in tow, we’ve stripped away all the extras because, for me, it was important to give them the type of summer I had as a child; one filled with time in the sun, exploration of new areas and above all, the ability to simply be children. For those of you who don’t know, we’ve left what most would see as civilization and are spending the summer on a small island off the coast of North Carolina. We fall asleep at night with the moon reflecting off the ocean and wake in the morning with the sun casting diamonds on the water. It’s an idyllic summer location and one that is sewn into the very fabric of my own childhood. We’ve taken all the hustle and bustle of our regular life and for a few short months, replaced it with the simplicity of sandy toes and sunkissed skin. So far, it’s been the most amazing experience of my life as a mom and I’ve loved every minute of watching my kids discover a much simpler way of life, one that leaves them giggling with happiness and is restoring in them my idea of what childhood should be. For us, the summer has been about so much more than being at the beach. We’ve removed the distractions, rediscovered the ability to connect with one another and gotten back to the way life should be…simple, wholesome, amazing. And along the way, we’ve discovered that just as our summer life is simple, our snacking should be as well. You see, these warm summer days leave all of us craving something cool and the perfect option is a snack that has the same basic principals as our summer.
For us, an average summer day is all about being outside. This beautiful island we’re calling home for the next few months has endless beaches, marshes filled with unexpected surprises and tunnels of trees where imagination can come to life. From the moment we wake up in the mornings, we’re out exploring. We’ve gotten back to the old childhood games of seeing shapes in the clouds and capturing fireflies only to set them free and watch them blink into the night. However, our absolute favorite activity is combing the beach at low tide. We love to pack up a cooler full of Froozer Frozen Snacks, walk across the street to the beach and find a spot to call our own until after the sun sets into the ocean.
As the boys find the perfect baby pool left behind by the receding tide to swim in, I like to set up a snack station filled with a frozen snack that’s as wholesome as the summer I’m working hard to create. That’s why our favorite snack of the summer has become Froozer Frozen Snacks. These great tasting frozen snacks that are made with 100% fruit boast all the goodness and taste of perfectly ripened fruits with no added sugar, juice or concentrate.
The easy to grab tubes come in a variety of flavors that are kid-approved and absolutely delicious! Since the fruits in Froozer Frozen Snacks are picked at the peak of their ripeness and then flash-frozen to seal in their nutrients source, I’m able to give my kids a snack much like the summer I’m giving them…natural, wholesome and full of fun!
