BUT I’m here to let you know it does, why you ask? Because who doesn’t want fun and easy snacks that require little effort?!

With a little overnight prep (freezing ahead), all of these recipes can be made in less than 10 minutes. Click on the title for the full recipe, hope you all enjoy and get inspired to create simple snacks perfect for any occasion.
Vanilla Bean Chia Pudding
I’m a huge fan of quick and easy solutions to my endless snacking. I’ve found that if I have a filling breakfast that’s on the sweet side, I usually snack less often and have a more productive day. Weird right? I swear it’s true though.
Chia pudding is probably the easiest of all to make, you can literally use any non-dairy milk you have on hand + chia seeds – that’s it! Toss in a few superfoods like cacao powder and/or acai and you’ve got an awesomely delicious meal/snack. I personally love to add any fresh fruit I have with a sprinkle of coconut and coconut sugar!
Summer might be over now, but that won’t stop me from having slushies! If watermelon isn’t available to you, replace it with grapes or any water-dense fruit that freezes well.
This is a fun way to enjoy fruit without actually eating it. Basically a smoothie, minus the juice.
Chocolate Date Amazeballs
Noticing a theme of sweets? I have a sweet tooth and it comes as no surprise if you’ve followed along my pages for some time now. Anything chocolate is a winner in my book. This was actually one of the first recipes I recorded a video tutorial for, you can check that out here.
The great thing about any sort of bliss bite/ball is that they store incredibly well and can be made ahead of time. Freeze them for up to 4 months! Traditionally the base includes oats + pitted dates. Then you can add anything else you like best – I love to throw in cacao powder, almond or peanut butter, shredded coconut and/or superfoods like hemp and chia seeds.
Superfood Banana Pops
If you’re looking for a natural ice cream alternative to keep the kids (and you) happy, I can’t recommend banana pops enough! These are the real deal, so rich and delicious. Another totally customizable recipe, perfect for adjusting to you’re preferred tastes.
Prep ahead by peeling ripe bananas, cutting in half and inserting a stick, freeze overnight. All you have to do is whisk together the simple, 3-ingredient chocolate magic shell and dip! Coating in whatever your heart desires. Or leave plain, but I highly recommend at least dipping them in coconut sugar – just once. You might get hooked!
