This festive Valentine’s Day trail mix is the perfect healthy and delicious snack to send with your kiddos to school, or take to work this February. Just be prepared to hand out the recipe. This trail mix is addicting!
I love trail mix. Every time I am at the store I am drawn to all of the different bags of trail mix. Then I remind myself that it is so darn easy to make at home. There is no need to buy it! I love this particular trail mix recipe because it is not only delicious, but it is also super festive for February. Filled with varying shades of Valentine’s colors, it is the perfect solution for a healthier Valentine’s Day snack.
Some of my FAVORITE Thrive Life ingredients are in this recipe. You will never find my pantry without the sliced strawberries. I use them at least 3 times a week. They are so yummy. We throw them in cereal, yogurt, pancakes, muffins, and tons of other recipes like this and this.
I also love the blueberries, and the yogurt bites. In this recipe I used strawberry and vanilla yogurt bites, but Greek would be fantastic in this as well. Especially if you don’t like things too sweet.
One of the beautiful things about Trail Mix is how versatile it is. You really can adjust the quantities however you choose according to your taste. This is what I consider a “no-recipe” recipe. However if you want the quantities I used, they are below. And the video will give you a quick little demo of how quickly it all comes together.
Thrive Life Valentine’s Day Trail Mix
2 cups Thrive Life Berries (I used about 1 1/2 cups Sliced Strawberries and 1/2 cup Blueberries)
1/2 cup Vanilla Yogurt Bites
1/3 cup Strawberry Yogurt Bites
1 cup salted cashews
1 cup pretzels
1/4 cups dark chocolate chips
Simple, simple ingredients. Just dump, mix, and package. If you are taking these to school or work I love putting them in muffin cups and throwing them in a muffin tin for easy transport.
