7 Delicious Low Fat Snacks
These low fat snacks are super easy to make! Simply add your favorite lemonade (we love pink lemonade!) to a popsicle tray and stick in the freezer until fully frozen. This is a treat that both kids and adults can enjoy. You can even customize this treat and use other types of juices as well, like apple juice or grape juice.
Fat-Free Chocolate Pudding
Having a chocolate craving? Not to worry! Fat-free or low fat chocolate pudding is a great choice for low fat snacks that help to keep you on track. Another bonus is that light chocolate pudding is a good source of calcium, which is especially important for growing kids.
Crispy Fruit Snacks
A great option for portable, mess free low fat snacks is Crispy Fruit. With seven varieties to choose from, you’ll always be able to choose a different fruit for every day of the week! Crispy Fruit is great to throw in school lunchboxes and backpacks for a healthy, on-the-go treat because you don’t have to worry about it spoiling like fresh fruit. That’s a win-win!
Our favorite fresh fruit that makes for awesome low fat snacks is definitely watermelon. Because watermelon contains tons of essential nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin B6, and vitamin C. It’s also a great snack to prevent dehydration, since it’s made up of 92% water!
Hummus and Fresh Veggies
While hummus might not be considered to be technically low in fat itself, it is definitely heart healthy because most of its fat content is made up of unsaturated fat. And when enjoyed with some fresh veggies like baby carrots and celery sticks, you can easily make this a light and healthy snack to be enjoyed at any time of the day!
Whether you eat them raw or even roast these low fat snacks with a little bit of sea salt, almonds are perfect for a light snack at work as a midmorning snack. You can also add them into your favorite salad or yogurt for a light, unexpected crunch!
Smoked Beef Jerky
For those of you who are meat eaters, beef jerky is another go to for low fat snacks that are super portable and easy to pack. Just make sure to get the low-sodium variety to cut down on your intake of salt, which can easily bloat you.
