Super food trail mix - man's best friend when it comes to snacking!
This trail mix is vegan, very healthy, all natural and contains a whole stack of essential vitamins and minerals needed in our daily diets. Oh, and did I mention it taste incredible? Perfect for lunch boxes, desk friendly snack at work, hiking, and as a crowd pleaser at parties - the options are endless. What's not to love?
If you have read through my other recipes, you may have noticed I love to snack. And I love those snacks to be oh so tasty. This snack is no different and ticks all of the boxes and more. Why you may ask?
The super food trail mix with blueberry, goji berry, nuts and seeds is one of my all time favourite go-to snacks because it's:
With this in mind, let's dive in and have a look at how you can go about making this power-packed vegan snack.
To make this recipe you are going to need 5 ingredients (yes, just 5!) and 5 minutes. I told you this one was going to be simple. There is also no cooking required and only one bowl to clean up afterward. Which means no fussy mess, no pans or pots to clean, or a sink full of dishes. Yes, I know what you are thinking - this is a recipe sent from the kitchen gods!
Our entire recipe consists of goji berries, dried blueberries, almonds, pumpkin seeds, and walnut halves. Now, not only do these ingredients offer great taste and texture, they also are (as the title suggests) super foods. This means they are loaded with amazing nutritional content that our bodies love.
From these ingredients we receive a good source of 'healthy fats (including Omega-3),' fibre, protein (16g per serve), magnesium, and vitamin E. We also get a high source of antioxidants (from the berries) and vitamin A. There are many more I could list, but take a look at the table provided for addition details on nutritional values per serve.
As I mentioned above, this superfood trail mix is very easily stored. You can store portions of your mix in airtight containers or bags (ziplock bags work a treat) for up to 2 weeks. I usually only prepare my trail mix one week in advance to avoid my nuts in the mix going yuck.
This recipe is perfect for those of us who like to meal prep once a week, people who like to be a little prepared and have snacks handy, or even those who need a last minute snack saviour. This recipe is designed for anyone and everyone!
And there you have it. Super simple, super easy, super food trail mix. I hope you enjoy it and be sure to share your creations with us!
