03 Sep Having Fun With Super Healthy & Tasty Trail Mixes
There is nothing boring about a trail mix. In fact if you get the family involved in creating one and leave it out for peckish fingers to nibble at will, you can be sure that your loved ones are getting a healthy energy boost throughout the day. Trail mixes are fabulous for lunch boxes too and to add onto yogurts; cereals; chia porridges and salads.
I’ve been so inspired by the creative mixes that some of the team have been making for themselves from the dried fruits; nuts and other superfoods in the office that I wanted to share some of our favourite creations:
Sian’s Trail Mix for Peckish Fingers:
This is a finer mix that would be great to add yogurt; cereal and salads in particular.
Tip – add fewer cacao nibs than the rest or else it can get a little bitter if you are munching all day and also try dried pomegranate pieces instead of the gojis if you find the gojis too sweet.
Robyn’s Delux Trail Mix:
Tip: Use a pair of kitchen scissors to cut the pears and mango pieces into smaller pieces and you will be amazed by how far they go.
Luisa’s Exotic Mix:
Tip – The dates make this a sweeter mix and can also be cut up into smaller pieces.
Christian’s Simple Savoury Mix
Tip – Perfect for Sundowners!
