Sweet Fruit Parfait
This is one of my favorite ways to SNACK NAKED. “Snack Naked” is a phrase I came up with to encourage my clients and community to approach snacking differently. Snacks can support our health and the health of the planet when they are “naked” aka when they are filled with real, whole foods without any plastic packaging. Many packaged snacks are filled with questionable ingredients (i.e., fillers, additives, dyes, added sugar) and are packaged in single use, non-recyclable packaging that contaminate our food and the environment. The snacks that I approve of nutritionally are all made with real, whole food ingredients! Instead of relying on those packaged options, why not be part of something bigger? It’s time to #SNACKNAKED with me!
At my hugely successful event at Package Free on July 17, 2019, we made many naked snacks! This Sweet Fruit Parfait features nut butter that you can either make yourself using my favorite kitchen appliance, the NutraMilk (use code ABBY50 for $50 off + free shipping) or Georgia Grinders nut butter (use code ABBYSFOODCOURT20 for 20% off your purchase).
It’s even more delicious (and sustainable) if you use local fruit! At the event, we used fresh blueberries and peaches from Local Roots (a customizable CSA in New York that has the most amazing produce). Most fresh fruits work beautifully!
I can’t wait for you to #SNACKNAKED. When you do, tag me @abbysfoodcourt on instagram and use the hashtag #snacknaked.
