Nothing says summer like an ice cream cone or an ear of just-grilled corn on the cob. But sometimes, what we put on top of these snacks isn’t always the healthiest choice. Here are a few tasty alternatives from Amie Valpone, chef, recipe developer, and editor in chief of thehealthyapple.com.

Ice cream
Instead of… hot fudge or caramel sauce
Try… melting almond, sesame seed, or cashew butter
Burgers
Instead of… ketchup or mayo
Try… adding a scoop of hummus, or salsa with chopped-up fruit, like peaches or cantaloupe
Corn
Instead of… butter or salt
Try… brushing on lime juice mixed with olive oil and chili powder

 

Would you try any of these toppings? What do you use to spice up traditional summer treats? Sound off in the comments below or tweet us at @KiwiMagazine.
