One of the things I most love about using freeze dried fruits and veggies is how easy it is to get my kids to eat healthy snacks. Here are two of my favorite snack mixes. They are super easy to make and when I feed them to my kids I know they are eating real fruits and vegetables, unlike the popular "fruit snacks", which are really just candy.
1-2-3 Ranch Snack Mix
1 cup THRIVE Freeze Dried Corn
1 cup THRIVE Freeze Dried Peas
1 cup THRIVE Freeze Dried Green Beans
1 cup gold fish crackers
1 Tablespoon oil
1 Tablespoon dry ranch dressing mix
Put all ingredients in a covered container. Gently shake until well coated. Store in an air tight container.
Almost a Sundae Snack Mix
1 cup THRIVE Freeze Dried Banana Slices
1 cup THRIVE dehydrated Pineapple
1 cup THRIVE Freeze Dried Strawberries
1 cup roasted salted peanuts
Put all ingredients in a covered container (I used a zip lock bag). Gently shake until well mixed. Store in an air tight container.
