Summer is here and to keep you looking your best for bikini season, I have put together 6 of the best super tasty snacks that are under 150 calories, all of which are super healthy, stuffed full of vitamins and minerals, and will keep you looking and feeling amazing – as well as slightly virtuous, as you know these are all part of your 5 a day .
1: Orange & Pear Dreamboat
Put a dollop of low fat frozen yoghurt into a blender, and add the juice of 2 freshly squeezed oranges. Core and peel a pear, slice, and add to the blender. Then blend, pour, drink and enjoy.
2: Avocado Crunch
Create your crunch by taking half an oatcake and crumbling, adding some herbs, black pepper and a little lemon juice. Mix the crunch together. Then peel and slice an avocado into strips, and coat either side of the avocado slices.
(Portion Control: half an avocado per person)
3: Watermelon and Feta Cocktail Sticks
Simply cut watermelon and feta cheese into bite sized chunks, and skewer onto a cocktail stick.
(Portion control: just two sticks per person)
4: Pick & Mix Sweets
If you have a sweet tooth, then this is the perfect feel-good super tasty treat. Simply freeze some washed green grapes and dark sweet cherries, then once frozen, serve. They melt in your mouth and are super refreshing on a hot day, and a great way of getting in your 5 a day!
(Portion control: a handful per person)
5: Banana and Chocolate Ice Cream
Simply peel a banana, then melt one square of dark chocolate. Dip one end of banana in chocolate to coat it, then place in freezer. Once frozen, you then have a super tasty banana and chocolate ice cream.
6: Sticky Stick
Take a celery stick, wash it and cut it into 4 inch pieces. Then simply spread a thin amount of low fat cream cheese (or peanut butter), and top with a sprinkling of poppy seeds.
(Portion control: two small sticks per person)
