“Mom, I’m hungry!”

If I had even a dime for every time I heard those words this summer, I’d be living the good life!   And it’s only been a couple of weeks.  My kids, and their friends who are over my house most days, are consistently asking for something to eat.   I like to blame it on boredom, but they are seldom bored.  Perhaps they are all going through growth spurts this summer, I don’t know, but I need to stock up on some healthy snacks and satisfying meals to curb their appetites.  Or I may go insane!

Thankfully my girls love fruit!  While they also love cookies and candy, they aren’t known for turning down fruit to often.  That being said, with them snacking as often as they do in the summertime, fresh fruit can get costly over time.  That’s where Libby’s® Fruits come in.  Libby’s® Fruits are a great ingredient in your favorite recipes or served on their own as a delicious snack.

There are tons of ideas on how to incorporate fruit into recipes on the Libby’s® Fruits & Vegetables website.  These recipes will help to keep nutritional value high and grocery costs manageable, which is a huge perk for all of us.

Add Libby’s® Fruits to your Summer Recipes

Here are some ways I use Libby’s® canned fruits:

  • I love adding fruit cocktail to jello and frozen popsicles.
  • The peach slices are great on top of vanilla ice cream and cool whip!  What my kids don’t realize is by adding the peaches, I can put less ice cream in the bowl yet it looks like a large serving.  I replace half the ice cream with fruit.
  • I like to combine fresh fruit with Libby’s® canned fruit when making a fruit salad to help stretch my dollars!  No one has ever complained about it, they’ve only gobbled it up.
  • I love to make peach muffins with canned peaches.

This summer, try something different with a can of Libby’s® Fruits and let me know what you make!
