Simple and Healthy Snacks to Make When You're Busy or On-the-Go

Simple and Healthy Snacks to Make When You're Busy or On-the-Go

October 1, 2021

What’s your go-to snack when you’re busy and on-the-go?

Here at Kooky, we love snacking! A little pick-me-up between meals keeps us fuelled throughout the day so we can keep performing at our best.

Often, we’re too busy to lovingly prepare ourselves fancy snacks; we need something delicious that we can just grab and take with us. 

So, we’ve pulled together some of our favourite simple and healthy snacks to give you some snacking inspiration!

Freeze-Dried Fruit and Gently-Dried Fruit Snacks

We may have cheated slightly for our first on-the-go snack idea…

Technically, you don’t have to do anything to our dried fruits; they’re pretty great as they are. 

The packaging is compact and lightweight, so you can just grab a bag and go - and the packaging helps to keep the fruit fresh, so you can store the rest away for another snack time. 

They’re deliciously sweet and filling so you don’t need to worry about adding anything extra if you don’t want to. 

As far as snacks go, something you can simply reach from the cupboard, throw into your bag, and delve into throughout the day is a winner in our eyes.

Simple and Healthy Snacks: Dried Fruit Muffins

This simple and healthy snack idea takes a little bit more pre-planning but can save you time and effort in the long run.

Why not make a delicious batch of healthy banana muffins using our Kooky fruits for a deliciously sweet snack?

The beauty behind this idea is that you can batch-cook your muffins and freeze them. Defrost one the night before ready for you to grab and go the next day. It’s simple and wallet-friendly.

We love this healthy muffin recipe - just remember to add our fruits to give it a unique Kooky twist! These work as an on-the-go breakfast, a quick work snack, or a delicious lunch box filler. 

Simple and Healthy Snacks: Kooky Fruit and Nut Mix

We love the idea of mixing sweet and salty foods to create a delicious snack that satisfies all your taste buds in one hit!

Grab yourself a Tupperware and generously mix a selection of nuts with your favourite Kooky fruits.

The crunchy texture of the nuts combined with the chewy fruits will create a sensory explosion in your mouth, leaving you feeling fully satiated until your next meal!

You can add the fruits and nuts as they are, or you could spice your nuts up a little first - if you have the time! Why not try this spicy roast nut recipe to create an interesting flavour combination with our Kooky fruits?

We’ve touched on some of our favourite Kooky fruit snack ideas, but we’d love for you to experiment with your own creations and see if you can come up with some unique combinations! 

The versatility of our freeze-dried and gently-dried fruits means you can try lots of different flavours and textures to create some amazingly simple and healthy snacks. Why not share your creations with us via our Facebook page?
