Almond Butter Ants on a Log

I know just the title brings you back. If you didn’t like this snack when you were little, you know someone who did!

While I detest raw celery, and would only scoop the nut butter and raisins off, this was, and is, still a favorite of my hubby’s.

He prefers almond butter, so that’s what he gets! Choose a nut butter, plain raisins or a mixture, and build your treat.

Almond Butter Ants on a LogIMG_20170723_180958 (1)

  • 2 celery stalks, washed and the ends chopped off
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 15-20 raisins

Spread the almond butter onto your celery, place the raisins on top of the almond butter, and dig in.

These are great as a snack or with a meal, Nick sometimes even eats them as breakfast. Do you love them with other toppings? What other snacks do you have that include both fruits, and vegetables?

Cinnamon Applesauce

Growing up, we had an apple tree and a pear tree. We also had a vegetable garden that I could only ever dream of (so far:) My mom made almost everything from scratch and her pear sauce is the best. Sweet and lightly spiced, it’s always one of my favorites.

I love a homemade applesauce too and this recipe couldn’t be more delicious or easy. Just chop the apples, add the ingredients, and it practically makes itself! Warm or cold, try this applesauce for a delicious treat.

Cinnamon ApplesauceIMG_20170406_150128 (1)

  • 6 organic red delicious apples, cored and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons honey (or vegan preference)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice

Add the ingredients to a medium sized sauce pan on medium heat. Cook for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. For a smoother texture, blend the mixture. Serve warm or cold and enjoy!

Tip: I blend 1/2 the mixture and add it to the rest for a chunkier applesauce=)

Emmy’s Fruit Salad

Summer heat calls for lots of hydrating fruit! This is my favorite combination of fruits and the addition of bananas is a great contrast to the berries.

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

Add all the fruit to a bowl and then the OJ. Carefully mix the ingredients and enjoy!
