Summer Fun with Fruttare Fruit Bars

Summer is here and it is HOT peeps! What better way to cool off on a scorching summer afternoon than to enjoy a yummy frozen treat, right?!?!

I stopped by Publix the other day & picked up some of these lovelies to bring home to the boys.

Fruttare is a refreshing, feel-good summer choice because each frozen treat is:

Low in calories and offers a good source of Vitamin C

Made with real fruit

Sourced from sustainably farmed fruit like strawberries, bananas, coconuts and limes

Best of all….all of us mommas don’t have to feel bad about giving them to our kiddos (or stealing one for ourselves), as the Fruttare Fruit & Milk Bars are just 110-140 calories/bar & the Fruit & Juice bars are just 60-70 calories/bar. 🙂

Liam’s current FAV is the Black Cherry!

I, personally, am not going to feel ashamed to say that I might have consumed an entire box of the Coconut over this last week…..it is SOOO good 😉
