Healthy Snack Alternative: Fruti Frozen Fruit Bars

 

Over the past few years, we have really been making a concerted effort to eradicate all artificial ingredients from our family’s diet. For meals, it’s been pretty easy. We eat meat, grains, and vegetables, mostly cooked from scratch. Real food, cooked in a real way.

Snacks can be a little more challenging. Especially for an on-the-go and active family like ours. {or yours?} We want things that can be grabbed easily for at-home or in-the-car snacking, and while I’ve found lots of all-natural granola bars and snack packs of nuts, I haven’t  been completely satisfied with the frozen snack treat options I’ve run across. Until now…

I love frozen treats – ice cream, popsicles, sherbet, sorbet, milkshakes, smoothies… you name it, I love it. The kids do too, and with warmer weather {hopefully} coming, we’re ready to stock up. When the chance to try an all-natural, premium non-GMO, fruit-as-the-main-ingredient, popsicle came up, I jumped on it.

After all, what kid doesn’t like popsicles?

Can you see the strawberry chunks in that bar in the picture? Yum! The box we picked up from Sam’s Club contained four delicious flavors – Pina Colada, Strawberry Cream, Strawberry, and Caribbean Mix. If you’re interested in checking out some of the snack options I saw when shopping at Sam’s Club, check out my Google Plus Album.

I can say, without a doubt, that these fruit bars will be replacing our normal frozen treats. The creamy Pina Colada and Strawberry Cream taste like ice cream bars, and the Caribbean Mix and Strawberry bars taste like popsicles. The Natural Fruit Corporation takes pride in using fruit as close to harvest time as possible. They are committed to using fruit as the first and largest ingredient – that means that they don’t need any artificial flavors or colors. The bars get it all from the fruit.

And let me just say that the lack of artificial colors and flavors is a HUGE selling point for me. We eliminated petroleum-based colors and flavorings a few years ago, and not only saw an incredible {and instant} improvement in Trevor’s hyperactivity, we were also able to keep him off the stimulant medications the school {at the time} and his doctors were suggesting. I can tell now if any of the kids have had foods with certain dyes and flavorings. We do not buy them anymore.
