Prepping and packing for a day on the beach or lake is no easy task. You need beach towels, water bottles, coolers, (don’t forget the ice), sunscreen, tanning oil, too, and snacks. The sun, the water and all the fun that comes with a long summer’s day can wear one out. And most of the time, unhealthy snacks are easier. But easy doesn’t have to mean unhealthy. Embrace nutrition and hydration with these easy frozen snacks that can be made ahead of time, and thrown in the cooler.
