It’s summer and that means lots of fun outdoor activities; picnics, 4th of July fireworks, long days at the playground, the pool, or if you are really lucky, the beach! Whether you have kids (like Melinda) or you’re just a super-cool aunt (like me) who is always on the go, it’s nice to have a few snacks planned that are easy to carry with you. When Blue Diamond Almonds showed us their new Blueberry Flavored Almonds we knew they would make an awesome trail mix, and with all of the 4th of July celebrations coming up we went with a red, white and blue theme. The blueberry almonds are sweet and fruity tasting so we mixed them with slightly tart dried cranberries, salty oven roasted almonds and yogurt covered raisins.
We love how the mix turned out, sweet, salty, crunchy, chewy but most importantly it got the stamp of approval from the kids. Melinda already has a mason jar full of our second batch and she’s packing it, the kids and her hubby up, and heading to the beach this weekend!
