Three Quick Snack Ideas

With everyones busy life, food is put to the back, and healthy food is looked at with taking a long time. I hope you can add some of these go-to snack ideas into your every day diet.

1. Banana and Almond Butterbanana and butter

  • My favorite brand of Almond Butter is Justin’s, because you can buy them individually packed so you don’t overeat. The chocolate is a nice treat. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Store-bought juice

  • Store-bought juices are quick and easy. I love the Evolution Fresh brand, all of their juices are amazingsuper green

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Smoothie

  • This option takes a little more time then the other two, but is still a speedy pick. Just make it with this background: ice, nut milk, fruit, (optional) greens, super foods, (optional) vegan protein.super smoothie

How To Ripen Bananas Fast

I don’t know about you but I am constantly making recipes with bananas and I frequently run into a problem of the bananas being too raw. Of coarse I usually like to have the bananas ripe naturally, but this is great fast trick to help get you there when you don’t have days to wait.bananas

Recipe: 

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees 
  2. Place desired amount of bananas on a pan with foil (spread them out so they have “breathing” room)
  3. They only take a few minutes, so after about 2 minutes check them and turn them for another minute, then take out

The banana-hemp granola recipe I use to make my own granola: http://www.happyolks.com/banana-hemp-granola/

Recipe:

  • Blend 1 unweetend Samazon acai packet with 1/2 frozen or unfrozen banana and a dash of almond (or preferred nut) milk
  • Put a couple handfuls or desired amount of granola on the bottom of the bowl
  • Pour blended Acai mix on top of the granola
  • Top with favorite fruits, the other half of the banana, and almond shavings(optional). I like blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries
  • For added sweetness, drizzle honey or agave on top
