Summer is here and I don’t know about you but the kids and I running out of easy snack ideas that we can pre-make to grab and go quickly (OK they would probably be happy eating goldfish crackers everyday but I AM NOT!) Here’s 4 different combos to ‘spice things up’ that you can stick in a baggie in the fridge and are ready to go!
- Edamame, cherry tomatoes, and parmesan cheese
The sharp, nutty flavor of parmesan. The smooth, velvety texture of edamame. And a burst of juicy tomatoes. This snack combination is as much poetic as it is delicious! These three unassuming ingredients come together to make a snack that would make most side dishes jealous. Pack this delectable bite to eat in a plastic bag or a container, and keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to devour it.
2. Spinach, blueberries, strawberries, pineapple smoothies
Pre-pack single serve veggies and fruit, stick in freezer and it’s ready to quickly add (or pack for trips) to your smoothies. My go to base is almond milk and a scoop of my favorite vanilla clean superfood protein powder!
3. Apples, almonds, cashews, cranberries, and shredded coconut
Perfect for you and the kids. Take the classic apples and peanut butter combo to the next level. By mixing apple slices with almonds and cashews, you still get that nutty flavor with an extra crunchy texture. Tart cranberries are a delightful contrast to the sweet apples, and the shredded coconut? It adds a lighter nut flavor to the mixture, making this a unique munchie that will jazz up your afternoon.
4. Cucumber, jicama, pineapple, watermelon, mango, lime juice, and chili powder
To make five days worth of this snack, combine 2 cups chopped cucumber, 1 cup chopped jicama, 1 cup chopped pineapple, 1 cup chopped watermelon, 1 cup chopped mango, the juice of two limes, and chili powder to taste. You can eat that alone, or serve it with 2 Tbsp. unsweetened shredded coconut and ¾ cup cottage cheese.
