The best meal as we all know is snacks. As a kid we looked forward to snack time, and as adults….well, not much has changed in that area. Who doesn’t love a little nibble here and there in between meals? But what makes snack time even better is when it can be packed into a container and have it all ready to eat whenever you see fit.
When it comes to snacking, I always advise that you shake things up a bit. Getting bored of the same snack day after day is a common complaint. Sure, that may be trail mix in your container but don’t be afraid to try something new; something other than just the dried nuts and berries. Personally, one of my new favorite snacks (which some may call dessert) is making a parfait. Sounds fancy, doesn’t it?
All you need is some some yogurt (either sheep’s milk or coconut) or just pureed bananas. I fill up one of my many fun shapes of Wean Green containers and then sprinkle with granola, trail mix, chocolate chips – any topping that you’d prefer.
You can consider freezing these parfait combinations and think of them as ready-to-go sundaes for that much needed snack when you get home from work or when you’re curled up on your couch watching a movie after dinner.
These containers not only keep the portion sizes manageable, but it also takes the ‘thinking’ out of it – it’s all ready to go, ready to eat, and ready to enjoy.
How It’s Made:
½ cup sheep yogurt, coconut yogurt, or pureed banana
2 tbsp nuts, seeds, cacao, goji berries
1 tsp chia seeds
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp drizzled honey or coconut nectar
