All of those events call for delicious portable snacks. If you worry about the store-bought processed choices, check out these 7 super nutritious snacks you can make for you and your family.

1. Party Mix

Party mix with sweet and salty, crunchy ingredients is always a hit. Try this recipe including Superberries Aronia berry Gummy Chews. The Gummy Chews add a splash of bright flavor contrasting the salty pretzels and Chex cereal and they supply antioxidants and vitamins to make you feel better about serving it to your family.

2. Healthy Trail Mixes

If you want to make a trail mix that is even less processed, and packed with more whole foods, try any of these recipes. Superberries Aronia berry Gummy Chews will pair well with all the combinations of flavors, even the spicy ones, and add a delicious complement of vitamins and minerals to round out the nutritional profile of these powerhouse snacks.

3. Smoothies

When you or your kids have just a few moments between school and soccer practice or piano lessons, but you need to refuel, try these Aronia berry smoothie recipes featuring Superberries frozen Aronia berries or Superberries Aronia berry concentrate. You can relax knowing that you are providing a delicious, healthy treat to sip on the go that will keep you all running until you can sit down for a meal.

4. Salsas and Chips

If you are craving chips and salsa but wish it were slightly healthier, you can try this Aronia berry salsa recipe. The frozen Aronia berries add a bold profile to your salsa and pair nicely with the salty tortilla chips. This recipe is versatile enough to use in tacos, burritos, salads, and as garnish in meat dishes.

5. Frozen Treats

As the weather warms up, frozen treats are an absolute necessity. Try these super easy Greek yogurt-Aronia berry popsicles if you want to keep something on hand that will please your entire family. They are packed with whole ingredients, protein, and disease-fighting nutrients, but all anyone will notice is how delicious they are.

6. Ice Cream

If you want to provide a non-dairy frozen treat, this coconut ice cream recipe using Superberries frozen Aronia berries is perfect. The added sweetness comes from dates, which are often called “nature’s candy.” They provide significant amounts of fiber, potassium, magnesium, and folate, to make your treat even healthier. You don’t even need an ice cream maker to whip this up.

7. Berry Desserts

This berry upside-down cake is a perfect quick treat when you need to bring something a little fancy. It looks like it takes a lot of time, but it really doesn’t. Replace either the blueberries or raspberries – or both - with Superberries frozen Aronia berries to increase the nutritional content of this seemingly decadent dessert.

With a little pre-planning, you can feel good about the snacks you are serving to your loved ones. Each of these recipes is easy enough to make with your kids and they will love helping. Superberries Aronia berry products are perfect to keep on hand so you are ready whenever the need for treats arises.
