Fruity Trail Mix

I love trail mixes. They are easy to make, store, and to carry with you for a quick snack anytime. This is the latest combination of ingredients I’ve been enjoying.


sunflower seeds

yogurt covered raisins

dried pineapple

dried berries

banana chips

dried apple slices

  1. Mix everything together in a bowl.
  2. Store in serving size containers or quart size canning jars.


  • To save money, use store brand products whenever possible.
  • Drying your own fruit will enable you to save even more money.

Serve Suggestions

  • Serve at lunch with fresh vegetable sticks and a hard-boiled egg or two.


Note: I know the yogurt covered raisins aren’t the healthiest, but I don’t think it is necessarily bad to treat yourself once-in-a-while. You just don’t want to make a habit of it.
