The weather finally agrees that it’s summer and we’re trying to spend as much time outside as possible! We recently updated our backyard deck and it’s become our favorite place to be every afternoon.
Of course with summer comes the requests for snacks. And more snacks. And more snacks. So in an effort to keep up with the tiny people demands, we’ve been having a summer snack bar every few days on the deck!
My new favorite addition to our summer snack bar is the new Orchard Valley Harvest Peanut Butter Spread! This spread is the best because it doesn’t require refrigeration (and all the moms said hallelujah!). I just open a tub and throw it on the table for the boys to dig in to!
For the summer snack bar I grab lots of different snacks and add them to a muffin tin for the boys to eat from. It’s always a gamble on what will be popular that day. A few favorites include sliced apples, pretzel sticks, and mini marshmallows! They love dipping the pretzels and apples into the Orchard Valley Harvest Peanut Butter Spread. Ezra’s favorite is the spread with peanut topping, but Jude prefers the plain spread!
Either way you can’t go wrong with Orchard Valley Harvest Peanut Butter Spreads because there are no artificial ingredients, colors, or flavors. And they are Non-GMO Project Certified. Which all makes this mama happy.
