Quick & Easy Healthy Snacks for Kids

recipesfood

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!

Organic Greek Yogurt & Peanut Butter Dip

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
