Easy fruity trail mix

Do you ever get that mid-afternoon slump and need a little pick-me-up?  I totally do!  But I also don’t want to raid the chocolate machine so I prepare my own snacks.  

It is super easy to make.

Just toast your favourite nuts and seeds in the oven - I’ve used almonds, cashews, walnuts, hazelnuts and brazil nuts, as well as sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds.

Then when they’re out of the over, sprinkle a little sea salt on them.

When the nuts and seeds have cooled, add your preferred fruits - I’ve used SUPERGOODFRUITS freeze dried raspberries, which I love the intense flavour of, plus some banana chips.  But you could also add in some chocolate chips as well or coconut chips.

Raspberries are a great source of vitamins C, B and E as well as suppling provitamin A, iron, calcium, folic acid, magnesium, potassium and zinc, as well as antioxidants.  These all help to stimulate your bodies defence mechanisms, promote blood purification and new blood formation, stimulate your metabolism and support your immune well as being super tasty!

And that’s it!  Enjoy your snack time...

You can also sprinkle this mix on top of your yoghurt & fruit or cereal.

  • 1 cup SUPERGOODFRUITS freeze dried berries (I used raspberries, but they have a great range to choose from here)
  • 2 cups mixed nuts
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
