Share This Post

Summer is a season filled with long days of sunshine and potential for wonderful family memories. One way to make the most of this time together is by preparing low-sugar treats that not only cater to healthier eating habits but also provide more time for fun activities with your children. Here’s how you can prep a week’s worth of delightful low-sugar treats with Lotta Products, ensuring you spend less time in the kitchen and more time making lasting memories, whether you’re at home, on vacation, or enjoying the great outdoors.

Prepping Low-Sugar Treats this Summer

1. Sunday Prep Day: Gathering and Planning

Begin your week by deciding on the treats you’ll make. Involve your children in the planning process by letting them pick from a list of options like cake, cookies, or homemade lemonade. This not only gets them excited about what’s coming but also gives them a sense of ownership over their food choices. Use this time to gather all your Lotta Products bake mixes and any additional fresh components like fruits or nuts.

2. Batch Making: Efficient and Fun

Choose a day like Sunday for batch preparation. This could mean whipping up a big batch of Notta Lotta Vanilla Butter Cookies to keep in the fridge, or using the Notta Lotta Yellow Cake Mix to create a variety of baked goods like cupcakes or mini cakes. Making these in bulk reduces daily prep time and keeps you ready for any spontaneous summer fun.

Recipe Idea: Lemon-Blueberry Yellow Cake Squares

Use the Notta Lotta Yellow Cake Mix to bake a light and fluffy yellow cake. Once it’s cooled, enhance it by adding a layer of lemon curd and fresh blueberries. Finally, top with a thin lemon glaze to seal in the flavors. Cut into squares for an easy-to-handle, refreshing treat that’s perfect for enjoying during outdoor activities or as a sweet picnic surprise. These lemon-blueberry squares offer a delightful combination of tart and sweet flavors, making them a favorite for both kids and adults.

3. Daily Enjoyment: Effortless Treats Ready to Go

With your treats prepped, each day can start with minimal fuss. Pack your homemade treats for a day at the beach or an afternoon in the park. The pre-made cookies and cake squares can be delightful snacks to enjoy after some active play, and they’re easy to carry and serve.

4. Taking Treats on Vacation

When vacation time rolls around, take some of your pre-prepared treats with you. They’re perfect for road trips, where stops are infrequent, and for keeping energy levels up in a healthy way. Items like our Notta Lotta Vanilla Butter or Chocolate Chip Cookies are portable and stay well in a cooler.

5. Making Memories: Beyond the Kitchen

The time saved by prepping in advance means more opportunities for creating memories with your children. Whether it’s building sandcastles at the beach, hiking through nature trails, or simply enjoying a backyard campout under the stars, each moment is enhanced when accompanied by healthy, tasty snacks.
