5 Healthy Snack Ideas

Hey Everyone! As you know, I love fitness, so what better way to kick off #recipewednesday than my top 5 healthy snacks!

Coconut Almond & Peanut Butter Bananas- Take half a large banana and slice it in half lengthwise and top it off with 2 Tbsp. peanut butter, 2 Tbsp. toasted coconut, and 1/4 ounce of roughly chopped almonds.

Frozen Chocolate Covered Fruit- You can dip your own fruit in dark chocolate, or just go out and buy some in the freezer section (Dole has strawberry, banana, and pineapple)

Fruit & Coconut Jello Cup- Grab your favorite sugar-free jello cup and top it with 1 tbsp. toasted coconut and 1/2 cup of your favorite fruit. I like blueberries and raspberries (think foods easily made small). It adds more texture and flavor compared to plain old jello.

California Turkey Rolls- Using a large piece of romaine lettuce, roll a 2oz slice of roasted turkey, 1/2 oz. pepper jack cheese, slices of red pepper, and 1/5 of an avocado. Add a tiny bit of Dijon mustard for a little zing. Mash a tiny bit of avocado and use it to seal the ends of the lettuce together in a neat little roll.

BBQ Chicken & Cheese Bites- Mix 1/4 c. rotisserie chicken meat cubed with 2 Tbsp. of your favorite BBQ sauce and a dash of salt. Top 4 slices of cucumber with half a wedge of Light Garlic & Herb Cheese Spread each and a tablespoon of BBQ chicken mixture. This is also great on whole-grain crackers!

These are all super yummy and fun healthy snacks. Try some of them out and let me know how you like them! QOTD: Do you like coconut? AOTD: Yes! I love it so much!
