Easy Fruit Snacks for the Summer

Turning on the stove or the oven during the summer months can almost feel like torture. The sweltering summer heat combined with the heat in the kitchen can almost be enough to put anyone off of cooking for a couple months. If you're looking to make a refreshing snack that requires no heat, Great Harvest in Kirkwood has the perfect suggestions for you.

Delicious Fruit Tart

Any kind of tart is hard to turn down, but a refreshing fruit tart during the summer will be impossible to turn away. Whether you're looking for a healthy and delicious snack while you're at home or for something to take to a barbecue, this tart is just the thing. You can choose to make your favorite crust or stick to a pre made crust to make things easier. In the meantime, grab your favorite summer fruit and start slicing it. Great options include strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, and blackberries. Once your crust is ready, grab your favorite Greek yogurt flavor and spread about a cup of it onto your crust. Next, start arranging your sliced fruit into your pattern or decoration of choice. You can serve it right away or keep it cool in the refrigerator until it's time for dessert.

Sweet Berry Salad

Another easy and delicious option is a simple fruit salad. We suggest grabbing about a cup of your favorite berries and other summer fruit for this salad. Wash, pit, and dice up your fruit before tossing them all together in a bowl. For this salad's dressing, you can stick to tangy lemon juice or sweeten it up with a drizzle of natural honey.
