Our Top 5 Healthy Summer Sweet Treats

Our top 5 healthy summer sweet treats for kids

Summer is in full swing! After a long day at the pool or beach, it’s hard not to give in to our kids’ pleas for a stop at the ice cream shop. (Let’s be honest, that Rocky Road was calling your name too!)

In our valiant efforts to keep our families (and ourselves) healthy and happy, we sometimes struggle to find the balance between taste and nutrition.

Healthy childhood development is important to us at Livie & Luca, so we thought we would share our favorite healthy sweet treat recipes!  Not only are these loaded with nutritious ingredients, but they’re also super easy to make!
