1. Good Foods Creamy Cilantro Dip & Fresh Veggies
Few things are better than a cool and creamy dip during the hot summer months. One last of this Creamy Cilantro Dip from Good Foods and you’ll be craving it all summer long. Creamy dips like this one pair perfectly with fresh veggies like cucumber, celery, red pepper and fresh carrots. If you’re trying to encourage your kiddos to get in some extra veggies while they’re home from school this summer, try serving them alongside a creamy dip like this one.
Good Foods Creamy Cilantro Dip is packed full of flavor and made from ingredients like cauliflower, almonds, cilantro, apple cider vinegar, and cashews. will take your veggies to the next level. It contains no chemicals, no preservatives, no additives, and no artificial ingredients, colors, or flavors. Try packing this dip and fresh veggies in your next picnic basket!
2. Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip & Fresh Fruit
If you’re looking for a bit of a sweeter snack this summer, try this easy peanut butter yogurt dip and fresh fruit. To make the dip, just combine one cup of plain greek yogurt, 1/4 cup of creamy peanut butter, and 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey. Serve this dip with your favorite fresh sliced fruit like pineapple, strawberries, or bananas. Want a little more crunch? Sprinkle the dip with your favorite granola.
3. Healthy Snack Plate with Southwest Guacamole
One of my personal favorite things I like to do over the summer is make a healthy snack plate of all my favorites. I like to think of these as “adult lunchables” that are a bit more sophisticated than what we grew up on. Try combining your favorite deli meat, crackers or chips, and cheese with things like fresh veggies, olives, and guacamole.
Since making my own guac can take a little bit more time than I may have over the summer, I love using pre-made Good Foods Southwest Guacamole as a dip for my fresh veggies and crackers. It’s so fresh and made from simple ingredients like hass avocados, roasted corn, black beans, and roasted poblano peppers. Plus, Good Foods guac has no artificial ingredients or added sugar to keep your snack plate healthy and full of real foods.
4. Nut Butter, Apple, and Chocolate Chips
This classic snack combo never goes out of style! There’s nothing like creamy nut butter with fresh apple slices and chocolate chips. I love to use creamy honey roasted peanut butter for this snack, but you could also use cashew or almond butter. The next time you’re craving a sweet snack try this!
5. Quick Avocado Toast with Good Foods Chunky Guacamole
Last, but certainly not least, is the undefeated avocado toast. Not only does it make a great breakfast, avocado toast is also a great snack option as well. I like to take things to the next level and use Good Foods Guacamole instead of plain avocado on my toast. It gives the toast way more flavor and only takes minutes to whip up!
