Easy powersnacks for working/studying/brainstorming

For those days when you can use an extra energy boost or when you feel sleepy at work in the afternoon: these four easy recipes (if you can call them recipes, they’re super easy to make!) are great to try out next week. When thinking about ingredients for future power snacks, high protein products like pumpkin seeds, tofu, eggs, turkey, Greek yoghurt and nuts are real boosters. Just as these easy-to-fix snacks below. Happy snacking!

1. Banana sushi rolls
Place a wholegrain tortilla on a flat surface and spread two tablespoons of peanut butter on the tortilla to coat it evenly. Place one whole banana near the edge of the tortilla and roll it up. Slice even rounds and enjoy!enhanced-buzz-14333-1394511500-8
2. Yoghurt + blueberries + granola combo
Place the frozen blueberries in a microwave-safe bowl and heat on the defrost mode until the blueberries are soft and have released some juice, about 3 minutes. In a small glass or bowl, scoop some of the blueberries and juices into the bottom. Layer with Greek yogurt, granola, agave nectar, and more blueberries (high on vitamin C!).


3. Chocolate avocado pudding
Remove the avocados from the skin (and pit) and place them in a food processor. Blend until combined and creamy. Add in 1/4 cup of light coconut milk, 4 tablespoons of dark cocoa powder, 3 tablespoons of honey, 60 grams of melted dark chocolate (72% or higher), 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Blending it until it’s all pureed. Taste and season additionally if desired. Blend it for a good 1-2 minutes until completely creamy, then serve with desired toppings. For the best effect: place the mousse in the fridge for a few hours.


4. Lemon popcorn
Pop some popcorn in the microwave and put it into a large mixing bowl. Turn over the popcorn and squeeze 1/2 of a lemon onto the popcorn immediately. Let the popcorn sit for a few minutes and then mix it up one last time.

    Mhh that looks delicious. And is exactly what I needed since I will spent my next months mostly in the library studying for my exams. Especially the avocado chocolate pudding sounds amazing. But one question: For how many avocados is the recipe?
