Two Seriously Delicious Snacks Perfect for Summer!

I was lucky enough to be asked to present on Channel 8 CT Style! It was so fun, everyone was so nice and I got to share 2 of my favourite summer-time kid friendly, nutritious, delicious and plant based protein snack recipes!🙌🏽🙌🏽 Summer-time can be filled with so many BBQ’s and parties that it can be difficult to keep your eating clean. I always say that preparation is the key to success and by having some pre-made, home-made, nutrient dense snacks in the freezer for those busy beach days you can sail through the summer with out losing your mind, energy or healthy vibes!

👆🏼Above is the link to my segment! Please check it out! I would love to hear from you and if you can “like” it on their page that would be great!!


I altered my Awesome Almond Joy Bites recipe for this occasion. I have been obsessed with the Juice Plus Complete Protein Powder! It tastes amazing and adds a plant based protein punch to these little bites of joy! I also love that it hosts 15 fruits, veggies and whole grains! It is Vegan and Gluten-free and if you are at all interested in trying it, here is a link.

It comes in Vanilla and Chocolate and I use it in so many recipes these days to boost the nutritional content for my whole family! 

I used the Dutch Chocolate Complete Protein Powder in this new version of Awesome Almond Joy Bites.

Almond Joy Freezer Bites


1/2 cup raw almonds or cashews

1/4 cup almond butter
8-10 medjool dates

1 tsp vanilla (or 1/4-1/2 tsp ground vanilla bean powder, hands down my favorite!)

¼ cup plant based protein powder

2 tbsp chia seeds

1-2 tbsp maple syrup (I have used 1 and 2, both options are great, it just depends how

sweet you would like it)

1 1/2 tbsp cacao powder

1 tbsp room temperature coconut oil

shredded coconut for rolling

– Place all ingredients except for the shredded coconut and blend it… A lot! Scrape down

the sides and blend again as needed, it will take a few minutes but definitely worth the

blending time :o)

– Roll into one inch balls

– Roll through the shredded coconut and put in the freezer for at least 30 minutes

– Enjoy!

“They Will Never Now” Blueberry Blast Smoothie

2 cups of your favourite nut milk or coconut milk

2 cups of Blueberries

Juice of 1 very juicy orange

1 Frozen banana

A large handful of fresh spinach

1 Tbsp ground flax seed

Ice cubes if needed

-Place all of the ingredients in the blender and blend away!

-Makes 2-3 servings depending on the size

– Put the leftover smoothie into popsicle molds and pop in the freezer for a super healthy anytime

snack!


This smoothie also rocks as popsicles!! My two wee ones devoured them! In fact I did not get a photo because they were gone so quickly!☺️
I hope you get a chance to try these yummy recipes and that they keep your summer a little easier and healthier!

Please let me know what you think, I LOVE hearing from you!

Happy start to the summer my friends! ❤️ April
