As a mom of three active teens, you can often find me driving from one activity to the next. It is not unusual for me to stash trail mix in my bag to give me an extra boost as I am running errands, driving carpool or recovering from a tennis match. When I get hungry, it becomes pretty apparent. Starting from the beginning of our relationship, my husband always said as long as I have snacks I am a nicer person. I’m sharing an organic trail mix recipe for adults on the go and Organic Honest Tea® to compliment it.
Coming up with a trail mix recipe that adults will enjoy can be a challenge. When I saw all the Simple Truth® easy snack food products at Kroger, my mind started to erupt with ideas. Since I’m a busy mom with a hearty appetite, I need to fill myself with snacks. As I am sitting at the car shop waiting for an oil change, I wish I had packed a baggie of this trail mix recipe.
I don’t know about you, but when it comes to snack ideas, a mixture of salty and sweet is usually the route I choose. It was hard to make a decision but in the end sweet and salty won. I prefer to make my own snack mix since I can read the labels on each ingredient. Prepared snack mix is also pretty expensive and if you want to go the organic route, you will be paying a lot.
Trail mixes are really easy snack recipes anyone can make at home, so let’s get started.
How to make the best homemade trail mix
Any good trail mix snack is basically a yummy combination of flavors that make your taste buds dance and distract your stomach from hunger. Trail mix recipes have just a few main components and have a combination of the following in each generous handful.
- NUTS or SEEDS
- DRIED FRUIT
- SWEET – chocolate chips, carob chips, chocolate coated candies
- GRAINS– crackers, pretzels, cereals, sesame sticks etc
Simply dump all your ingredients into a bowl for this easy snack recipe. We chose the following Simple Truth snack items :
- Organic Banana Chips
- Organic Sea salt and Black pepper popcorn
- Simple Truth Yogurt covered raisins
- Simple Truth Dark Chocolate covered almonds
- Simple Truth Organic Honey Nut Toasted oats cereal
Mix together. The nuts and raisins are pretty heavy so they will drop to the bottom of the bowl.
This recipe made enough snacks for a crowd. Thinking of some busy women in my life, we decided to package some bags of this sweet and salty trail mix. Knowing I was headed to watch my friends play tennis, I made this free tennis bag printable for you to share.
Of course, every good snack needs a yummy drink to go along with it. Pair your trail mix with a bottle of Honest Tea. This is the perfect choice if you like to drink tea just a tad sweet or unsweetened. Honest Tea is brewed with real ingredients. A cold tea and a sweet-salty mix will make any person on-the-go constantly a little happier and definitely left with a satisfied tummy.
Honest Tea stands for Honesty and Transparency – from the way their ingredients are presented to their efforts to help make the earth a better place. Just take a sip and taste the honest difference.
