Simply Sweet Naturally: Quick Snacks

Since going off of white sugar and white flour, I have had to be creative in coming up with wholesome snacks that are quick! Since we do not eat many processed foods and are busy home schooling through the day, this can be hard at times. I have found several ways to sweeten our life while not compromising what is good for my family's health. Some of the natural sweeteners we are using include: honey, agave nectar, molasses (mostly for baking), and Sucanat.

Fresh Fruit with Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip

I sweeten plain yogurt with honey or agave nectar and add peanut butter. This is great with apples or bananas! I found that the muffin cups make perfect portion cups and look appealing to the children.

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

My kids love this! I add sliced frozen strawberries (unless they are in season and then I use fresh) and a little honey or agave nectar to plain yogurt and mix in the mixer so that the strawberries are crushed. Then we eat it as is or scoop it into muffin cups and place in the freezer for frozen yogurt.

Ants on a Log

I use old fashioned peanut butter, organic raisins and a little sprinkling of Sucanat for added flavor and crunch.

Fresh Fruit Plate

For family movie or game night, we sit down to a plateful of fresh fruit and a big bowl of popcorn. It is amazing how sweet fruit tastes now! So, I try to keep plenty of organic apples, oranges and bananas around for quick snacks.

The kids (mostly the older boys) were ready to go back after day 30 (we are on day 43), so this has encouraged me all the more to be creative! Plus I want healthy eating to be a joy to my children!
