No-Bake Eats

This weekend we are expecting temperatures above 100 degrees. There is even a heat index warning for our area! I have been getting the kids out of the house early when it is still not too hot and later in the day any outside time is spent in water play.....aka....sprinklers, water guns, popsicles, etc.

Nobody has wanted to eat very much at any one time. In the heat we tend to do more small snack-type meals. I am staying away from my oven as much as possible!

These are some of our favorite no-bake eats for summer.

We love smoothies for breakfast or lunch or afternoon snacks and dessert.

I love my peanut butter in everything :)

a Strawberry and Cream smoothie from Averie Cooks
 This is more Ty's style. He likes his smoothies nice and fruity, and not so much peanut buttery!

Granola Bars!
These are great to keep in the fridge for any time.

I made these last week and took them along in my day-trip bags for snacks. They are least in my house.

These are a healthified version of traditional no-bake cookies and I am kind of obsessed with them right now.

Peanut Butter Balls

THIS version from Texanerin is pretty awesome.
Little protein packed bites that taste like cookie dough. These are Mia's favorites!

Have you tried 1 ingredient banana soft serve??
It is pretty life-changing.

I like to add peanut butter balls to mine and call it peanut butter cookie dough ice cream. (This one is also very kid-approved at our house.)

If all else fails there is always watermelon.

Have a fabulously HOT weekend!


  1. You and I are alike in that way I <3 ANYTHING with peanut butter and Cole loves....well....un-peanut buttered things :)
