Speak Up: What Are Your Favorite Healthy Summer Snacks?

I told you guys about my favorite cooling foods to beat the heat that also double as tasty healthy snacks during the hot months of summer. A lot of us have our standard healthy treat (red ants on a log anyone?) that we turn to when we're feeling like a healthy summer snack and I am wondering what yours is. Speak up and share your summer snack ideas in the comments section below. I can't wait to see all your ideas so I can add a few to my repertoire.

frozen bananas are my favorite...and ice cream is good no matter what the season :-) cantaloupe and watermelon are also tasty, and definitely italian ices (peanut butter, pistachio, blueberry, rum raisin) from the corona ice king in queens, ny

Fruit - me too :) All kinds! I go to the farmer's market twice a week. I'm a big fan of fruit salads (since I cant eat them anywhere w/ out worrying about my hand being dirty. I'm eating one right now :) (blueberries, strawberries, a nectarine, a few raisins and some flax seed on top)

I'm Mexican and my favorite snack is a commonly found street food in Mexico that I absolutely love in the summer. It's spears of cucumber, mango, watermelon (and sometimes jicama and/or pineapple) sprinkled with lime juice, ancho chile powder (mild), and a little salt. The sweet-sour-crunchy refreshing combo SO hits the spot!

Haha everyone said fruit. It is true though, I just love fresh fruit (not frozen . . . never) and you couldn't get it any fresher than at my grandmother's house. Every summer when I visited her we would go up into the moutains and pick mangoes, mandarins, bananas, and more. There was nothing better than sitting down to eat the perfect mango after an afternoon hand picking it yourself. There were also trees nearer to the house, and I remember my grandmother would ask me if I wanted orange juice, then she would reach out the kitchen window, pick an orange, and make me the most excellent juice ever. Don't even get me started on her frappe lemon/limeaids! Whenever I have "fresh" juice in the US it just doesn't compare. The juice might be fresh squeezed, but the fruit isn't fresh picked, and you can always tell. I also love eating pineapple, watermelon, passion fruit, and lulo (naranjilla), although we didn't grow our own. So that's something I look forward to every summer :) I'm eating papaya right now, actually. as for something besides fruit. . . . what are those flavoured crushed ice things called?

Ooh, Ill second the grape tomatoes. I eat them by the handful. I also forgot about a new indulgence, when I come in the door from working out, all hot and sweaty, I reach for frozen asparagus spears. Sounds weird, but I swear they are good and cool me down so quick.

i'm on a special low-sugar diet so i can't enjoy the wonderful summer treat of fresh fruit... however, i still have lots of great healthy snacks! dry-roasted pumpkin seeds are delicious, satisfying, and always fill me up if i'm feeling ravenous between meals. i also love sesame rice crackers with hummus or a rice cake with almond butter. mmm!
