Quick and Easy After-School Snack Ideas

You’ve stocked up your kitchen with the right foods to pack a week’s worth of lunches for your children, but what about their after-school snacks? Try these tips for tasty afternoon treats:

Sip your snack: Make a smoothie!

Use Pierre’s frozen yogurt, or even Pierre’s Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt, to make a refreshing treat. Simply blend it with fruit, ice and some milk, and enjoy! (Think of smoothies as milkshakes made better-for-you.) If you’re entertaining multiple tykes, you can even set up a make-your-own smoothie bar for a fun, interactive activity.

Frozen novelties are fun for kids

Ice cream novelties like sundae cones, ice cream sandwiches, fruit pops, fudge pops and others are perfectly portioned and perfectly priced (they come in bulk), which means they’re the perfect after-school snack for kids. Stock up on a variety of novelties to give your child something new to snack on each day.

Looking for something dairy-free, fat-free and low in calories? Try Pierre’s snack-sized ¡Hola Fruta!® Fruit Bars.

Make frozen fruit cups

This is an easy and fun way to get your children to eat more fruit. Dish out one serving of any flavor of ¡Hola Fruta!® Pure Fruit Sherbet – a refreshing alternative low in fat and cholesterol – and top it with whatever fresh fruit you have on hand. We suggest pairing Strawberry with banana slices (but we won’t hold it against you if you sprinkle fresh raspberries on top of a scoop of Pomegranate & Blueberry).

Sample new flavors with sorbet

Many parents encourage their kids to try something new. Sorbet is the perfect fat free and cholesterol free way to introduce different flavors to the little ones, like the exotic tastes of Passion Fruit and Mango. Better yet, offer these flavors and talk about the fruits they are made of and the parts of the world in which they are grown. Your kids get to go on a “dessert adventure” and you can feel good about serving these low calorie treats.


At Pierre’s Ice Cream Company, we make the most irresistible premium ice creams and frozen treats fresh every day using the highest quality ingredients sourced from all over the world.

Check out our more than 235 different products and great-tasting flavors – from indulgent, super premium ice cream to delicious probiotic frozen yogurt to refreshing pure fruit sherbet and more.

It’s our desire to delight you with every spoonful. Learn more about Pierre’s.

Graduation parties made easy with ice cream

It’s cap-and-gown season! If you’re planning a party for your graduate, you know how challenging it can be to prepare a menu, stage the seating, decorate – and still have time to catch your breath and enjoy the festivities.

Consider Pierre’s your party planner. We’ll help make things simple – and so, so delicious – at your graduation gathering by enlisting the help of ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbet, sherbet and novelties.

Set Up a Sundae Bar

Let guests assemble their own unique creations. Serve a sampling of ice cream flavors – French Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry are perfect sundae-starters! Place bowls of your favorite toppings next to plastic cups and spoons, and let the dessert portion of the party manage itself! Get more tips for building the perfect sundae bar.

Serve Ice Cream Cakes and Pies

There’s no need to turn on the oven when it’s warm outside; whip up ice cream versions of your favorite cakes and pies instead. Simply spread layers of different ice cream flavors in a 9×13 pan, spring form pan or other serving dish, frost with light whipped topping and serve. Best of all, most ice cream cakes and pies can be prepared well ahead of time.spirit-of-america

Get creative with your combinations. We love to fill a store-bought chocolate cookie-crumb crust with Black Cherries & Chocolate Chunks Yovation® Probiotic Frozen Yogurt and drizzle it with yummy chocolate syrup. Or, try this recipe for All-American Ice Cream Pie using Pierre’s Spirit of America® Premium Ice Cream and fresh blueberries and strawberries.

Make Your Own Sundae Cups

Make a signature ice cream dessert in honor of your proud graduate. Find out his or her favorite flavors and make a batch of miniature sundaes using small serving bowls. Simply line up the bowls, fill each with a scoop or two of ice cream and toppings and voila! These treats look great, are easy to make and highlight the star of the party.

Build a Buffet of Ice Cream Novelties

For an even easier spin on setting up a sundae bar, simply fill serving bowls or dishes with ice and offer your guests a range of sundae cones, fudge pops, fruit pops, cream pops, ice cream sandwiches and more. Find out more reasons why you should stock up on ice cream novelties this summer.

Staff a Smoothie Station

For a fun spin on dessert, enlist the help of a trusted family member to be in charge of the blender. Provide cups and straws, and guests will select ingredients from serve-yourself bowls of fresh fruit – we suggest various berries, bananas and peaches. Your blender captain will mix each guest’s cup of fruit with ice cream, frozen yogurt or sorbet for easy, sippable goodness.

You can even make ice cream cocktails – for the guests ages 21 and over only, of course.
