The sun is shining and we want to spend as many hours as possible outside. This reduces the time we spend in our kitchens and take-away options become more attractive.
What you eat between your meals does matter. If you feel the need for snacking, you want them to be a fibre-rich supplement that keeps your blood glucose stabile and boost your metabolism in order for you to stay focused, be full and satisfied.
Therefore we have prepared a few healthy, tasty and quick snack recipes for you to enjoy!
Prepare them from home and bring your healthy snack for work, the beach or your next training session with good conscience.
1 banana (preferably frozen)
1 handful of spinach (fresh or frozen)
4-5 brazilian nuts (or other nuts)
2-3 cm. fresh ginger
1 tbsp. hemp seeds
1 tbsp. cinnamon
Juice of 1 lime
1⁄2 tbsp. raw honey or 1⁄2 tsp. vanilla powder
1⁄2 cup almond milk or water
Place all the ingredients in your blender. Add more or less almond milk/water depending on how you prefer the consistency. Pour the yogurt-mass in a bowl and top with grated organic lemon peel, granola or coconut flakes.
Eat as a snack or even as a meal, for example breakfast.
Raw cocoa protein-bars
1 small handful chopped almonds (about 40 grams)
2 handfuls dates without stones (about 130-150 grams)
1 handful oats or millet
2 tbsp. raw cacao
1 tbsp. coconut oil
4 tbsp. coconut flakes (coconut flour can also be used)
1 tbsp. raw honey (maple/agave syrup can also be used)
1 tbsp. psyllium-husk
1⁄2 cup water or plant milk
Pinch of salt
Blend dates, coconut flakes, coconut oil and millet/oats into a homogeneous mass. Stir the remaining ingredients in with a spoon. Place the mass in a baking tin (a freezing bag can also be used) and place in the freezer for 1-2 hours. Take out the tin and leave on the kitchen counter till you can pour out the mass. Cut the mass in small squares. Store the bars in the freezer and take them out 10-15 min. before serving!
2 large handfuls of frozen strawberries
2 frozen bananas
2-3 lumps frozen spinach
2 tbsp. raw cacao
5 dates (pitted)
2 tbsp. coconut oil
Water or plant milk as preferred (about 1⁄4 liter)
Mix all the ingredients in a blender (approx. 1300watt) and serve in a frosted glass – or pour into ice molds, freeze down and you’ll have homemade ice cream lollipops! Top with cocoa nibs, chia seeds or chopped almonds.
Tip: You can add a scoop of quality protein powder and you’ll have a tasty protein shake/protein ice cream!
