Blogmas Day 14: Snack Foods

Hey Guys!

So I’m not sure about you, but I always seem to find myself searching for snack foods… even when I’m not hungry.  So I’m always on the lookout snacks that are actually healthy for you.  So when I’m in a pinch I love to search pintrest for recipes that are healthy and I would actually want to eat.

  1. Grinch Hats:   Bananas, Green Grapes, strawberries and mini marshmallows.  The amount you will need is dependent on how many you want.  I used 12 grapes, 12 strawberries, 12 marshmallows and 1 large banana.snack-tree
  2. Snack Tree:  For this you will need Granny Smith apples, stick pretzels, red grapes, and cheese.  Again depending on how much you want to make is how much fruit you will need.  Also, you don’t have to arrange your fruit but I thought it looked cute.  I used 1 large apple, 8 pretzel sticks, 2 grapes and 2 slices of cheese.  The one in the picture is cheddar, but I’m partial to colby jack too so that might be a good choice as well.avocado-christmas-trees
