Almond Berry Celery:
This is a great snack that is easy to make and very kid friendly. Celery is typically highly sprayed with pesticides so you want to get this organic. The same goes for berries. I find that creamy almond butter works best in this recipe as opposed to crunchy.
Sometimes you just need something that is SUPER easy to make, full of nutrients and will satisfy your hunger and cravings. This recipe really does that for you as the almond butter and berry combo tastes like peanut butter and jelly and we keep the bread out but get a refreshing crunch from the celery.
This is quite satisfying because it is loaded with good fats, anti-oxidants, clean protein and fiber. Additionally, the celery is full of electrolytes that support your energy levels and mental clarity. Great afternoon snack for the kids when they come home from school. Can be prepared in minutes and goes a long way.
Almond Berry Celery
Yield 6 stalks
- 6 Organic celery stalks
- 18-20 Organic blueberries
- 18-20 Organic raspberries
- 6 tbsps of Almond Butter
- Cinnamon sprinkled over top
Step #1: Separate and wash the celery stalks. You can chop them down in size if you would like or keep them full length.
Step #2: Spread almond butter onto the celery. Try to get it into the groove as much as possible. Large stalks are easier to fit the almond butter into the groove. This makes it a cleaner finger food. If the almond butter gets outside the groove it makes it a little more messy. Something to consider if you are giving this to children.
Step #3: Place berries on top of the celery stalks and almond butter.
Step #4: Sprinkle cinnamon over the top.
Step #5: Enjoy!
