Quick & Easy Healthy Snacks for Kids
I get busy like every mom and can get in a rut when it comes to serving different healthy snacks to my kids. Fresh fruit and raw veggies are always on my go-to list. However when you can add a healthy dip or serving style - it goes over like a brand new snack!
Dicing fresh fruit into small pieces and adding toothpicks always goes over well in my family - apples, pears, grapes, strawberries, peaches, plums and apricots work splendidly! Adding a simple peanut butter dip adds extra protein and nutrients as well as, make snack time fun.
Organic Greek Yogurt Peanut Butter Dip
- 2/3 cup of Organic Greek Yogurt
- 1/4 cup of creamy peanut butter
- (should have one ingredient - peanuts - avoid peanut butter full of added sugar & oil)
- 1 heaping teaspoon of Ceylon Cinnamon
Mix together well and place with the diced fruit. A healthy snack with no added sugar!
Pretzels & Chocolate Yogurt Dip
Pretzel sticks are perfect for dipping and adding a bit of melted 80% chocolate chunks to organic Greek yogurt can be the perfect sweet treat - without being too sweet.
- 1 cup of Organic Greek Yogurt
- 1 Tbs of cocoa
- 1 teas of Ceylon Cinnamon
Stir the Greek yogurt and cocoa together with plenty of pretzel sticks!
Floating Spiced Bananas
Slice a banana in a bowl. Add enough whole milk to come 3/4 to the top of the banana slices.
Sprinkle a bit of Ceylon cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg on top.
This is such a simple snack and kids love it!
Frozen Banana Ice Cream
Peel and cut into large chunks, four bananas.
Place on parchment paper and cover with a sheet of parchment, then place in freezer.
After about five hours they are frozen. Place frozen banana chunks into a blender with 1 tablespoon of cocoa and 1 teas of cinnamon.
And blend well.
Add ins: 1/2 of strawberries and/or 1/2 cup of organic vanilla yogurt
