When the after-school munchies attack, serve this Strawberry Raisin Snack Mix. It’s one of my favorite easy snack ideas. When my son gets home from school he is usually ravenous. And, rightfully so. He leaves for school at 8 AM and doesn’t get off the bus until 4 PM. That’s a long day for a little kid.
I like to keep a stash of easy snack ideas on hand to help hold him over until dinner. This Strawberry Raisin Snack Mix is perfect! I used two types of California Raisins in this recipe — plain raisins and strawberry yogurt covered raisins.
California Raisins are an all-natural, dried-by-the-sun fruit you can feel good about sending with your kids as they head back to school or offering as an after-school snack. The ingredient list says it all: Raisins. That’s it. No words you can’t pronounce or other sketchy ingredients.
California Raisins come by their sweetness naturally. With California Raisins, the nutrition label tells a great story: Zero fat, no cholesterol and no added sugar. Plus, raisins offer 9% of your daily fiber and potassium, and 6% of your daily iron. It’s a snack you can feel good about.
My son loved this Strawberry Raisin Snack Mix. I like that it’s easy and portable. I can pack it in his lunch box or give it to him as a sweet, after-dinner treat, too. I also like that I can make a big batch to keep on hand.
