after school snacks
Want some tasty and easy snack recipes? Well you’ve come to the right site! Todays recipes are fun and healthy snacks that include, Banana Sushi, and Cobb Salad Skewers! Are you hungry and ready to learn these recipes? Me too!
Cobb Salad Skewers:
You can eat this snack all year round, but it’s easiest to make after Easter since you will have the most leftover eggs probably. Thread all the fixings for a classic Cobb salad onto bamboo skewers: grape tomatoes, quartered boiled egg pieces, and rolled strips of romaine lettuce, plus cubes of avocado, rotisserie chicken, and ham. Serve with a side of blue cheese dressing for dipping.
Easy as that! Onto the next scrumptious snack!
Start with a peeled banana. Trim one end so that it’s flat, and set the banana upright on the cut. Use a butter knife to apply a coating of all-natural (sugar-free) nut butter, then roll the fruit in a healthy topping. Examples are: chia seeds; unsweetened, shredded coconut; crushed pretzels; and chopped walnuts. Cut into 3/4-inch slices and serve. If you can’t consume peanut butter you may also use sunflower-seed butter or soy butter.
That’s all there is to it!

It’s August. Now, I know most kids don’t look forward to going back to the tests, homework, and classes, but these are some Kid-Approved back to school snacks that will make the school day great!
Ants on a log:
Ants on a log is one of my personal favorites. It is very simple to make for kids or parents. What does this delicious treat consist of? It consists of celery, your favorite nut butter, and raisins. First step to making Ants on a log is take your celery and cut it into 3 inch ribs. Next you spread your nut butter in the middle of the “log”. The last step is very simple. Take your raisins and drop them into the middle onto your nut butter. And done! Thats all there is to it!
This is also a very easy treat to make. First step is to take your desired fruit and slice them in half in a single layer on a tray. Place the tray in the freezer until frozen. Once they are frozen, take them off the tray and place them in a freezer safe container or bag. Whenever your craving a popsicle, just take out your frozen fruit for a healthy and delicious frozen treat!
