Thinking Outside the Box: 8 Creative Snack Ideas to Satisfy any Craving



We often get requests for the quick, easy and simple snacks. But some of our clients want to add a little something extra to their snacking collection. Kris went on a hunt for some more creative options and came across some tasty treats! If you're looking to spice up your snacking life (and don't mind a little prep), check these out!!


Avocado rice cakes: Top an unsalted brown rice cake with 1/4 of an avocado (mashed), then sprinkle with black pepper and paprika. 


Yogurt-dunked berries: Use a toothpick to dunk individual blueberries one at a time into a container of Greek yogurt; a second toothpick helps push the berry off onto a baking sheet. Freeze for one hour, and store any leftovers in the freezer. 


Ultimate Power Bites: Dried plums, puffed millet, puffed rice, chocolate chips, sesame seeds, SunButter, and honey. Mix it all together, chill the mixture, then roll it into balls and coat with unsweetened shredded coconut. See full recipe here - https://www.franceslargemanroth.com/ultimate-power-bites/


Watermelon and feta cheese: One cup diced watermelon served with one to two ounces of feta cheese. Can seriously help satisfy the sweet and salty craving!


Banana cream "pie": Spread fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt onto graham crackers, then top with a handful of banana slices and a sprinkle of ground flaxseed. (Read the label to make sure you stick to one serving of graham crackers.)


White bean dip: Mash canned white beans with olive oil and chopped fresh rosemary. Pile onto radicchio, lettuce leaves, or nothing at all!


Tasty tapas: Stuff mini whole wheat pitas (about 2 inches in diameter) with different tastes, such as salsa; cashew butter; cheese; or hummus with cucumber and tomato.


Chia Pudding: In a small glass bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons chia seeds with 1/2 cup milk of your choice (if you use a nondairy milk, be sure to choose an unsweetened one). Allow to sit for two to three minutes, then whisk again. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours and up to five days. When you're ready to eat, add fresh fruit, dried coconut, nut butter or any other toppings you'd like.
