Spring is more than just in the air here where I live. I love the seeing the green grass after a very long winter. This spring, The Healthy Shopper has handpicked a fun new snack with clean ingredients and touts the benefits of a creamy nut butter with a coconut twist. Experts at “Unjunking your Junk Food,” the health savvy duo of Andrea Donsky, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, and Healthy Shopper co-founder Randy Boyer offer a couple of unique ideas for snacking this spring.
This season they’ve taken two conventional snack foods and swapped them for alternatives with all natural ingredients. The first option, Earth Balance P.B. Popps, is a delicious popcorn coated with oats and cuddled in a peanut butter cluster that make a yummy snack. These crunchy nuggets are Non-GMO, Vegan, Dairy and Gluten-Free and have 0g trans fats. “This unique snack option is a “must try,” said Boyer. Earth Balance P.B. Popps retail for $5.99.
P.B.Popps is a great snack to just pack in our bag for our car trips and activities. The peanut butter clusters mixed with popcorn were so yummy they didn't last long at our house at all.
They’ve also taken peanut butter, a traditional children’s favourite, and added a trendy coconut flavour. “If you’re crazy for coconut, this one part all-natural peanut butter and one part organic extra virgin coconut oil blend is a tasty treat,” said Donsky. Earth Balance Creamy Coconut and Peanut Spread is great on toast, in stir-fry dishes, smoothies and even as a warm dip for crisp apples or celery and retails for $6.99.
Both products are available at Loblaws.
