It’s Snack Time!

For me snack time is always a good time! It doesn’t matter if I’m hungry or not. I just like to cook up some simple treats to indulge myself in between meals. Here are some of the things I like to prepare when I feel like I am becoming hungry.

Fruit option. I love bananas. I don’t think there is a single person on earth that doesn't like banana. I also love cheese! But when you combine banana with cheese…it’s like heaven on earth. A strange combination? Well bananas are a tasty, sweet fruit filled with good nutrients. The saltiness of the cheese counteracts that sweetness, making it a delicious combination. Try it and let me know what you think!

Smoothie options. Smoothies are a delicious nutritious drink you can make at home. You can add whatever fruit or vegetable you love, some milk or water, blitz it, add some ice and it’s done. The ones I like are:

Pink smoothie
1 banana
 4-6 frozen strawberries
1cm ginger
 cold milk
Yellow Smoothie
1 banana
4 medium slices of melon
1 cm ginger
Cold milk

Dairy option. This is a great treat if you need something a bit more substantial and filling. Although the smoothies already give you a filling sensation, Greek yogurt with Marie biscuits pared with a Pink/ orange smoothie could be a great breakfast option. You can add some honey or chocolate chips for sweetness.

Pink/orange smoothie:
4-6 strawberies
2 carrots
1.5 cm ginger
Cold water

Avocado options. I absolutely love avocados. So I decided to try avocado on toasted multigrain bread, and it is absolutely delicious! Of course, I cannot live without a glass of warm water. Yes, warm water! Especially during the winter, it just gives me a cozy feeling. Mashed avocado with Port wine is also a delicious treat! I add a bit of sugar on this one for sweetness. Half of a mashed avocado to 1 tbsp of port wine is good enough.

These are very simple snacks, you can whip up when you are getting hungry or when you want to eat something delicious and sweet. They are filled with nutrients and goodness, great to fuel up your tank. :)

Try it and let me know, what your favorite is!

Thank you! :)
