The VerMints Gang on 24th May 2016
We’ve all experienced that mid-afternoon tummy grumbling that can’t be ignored. In that moment, we’re faced with a choice: a) scarf down the closest available donut, or b) exercise mindful eating with healthy vegan snacks. The latter might sound tough — especially when you’re already in major munch mode. So to make curbing cravings a cinch, here are 8 raw vegan snacks you can prep in advance to prevent hunger emergencies.
Homemade Jalapeno Cilantro Hummus and Veggies
Hummus and fresh-cut veggies are delicious no-brainers. This Jalapeno Cilantro Hummus recipe is a fresh and spicy take on a classic that will keep you satisfied without spoiling your dinner. We like to keep a container full of pre-cut veggies ready to go for quick and easy dipping.
Chia Seed Protein Bars
These raw vegan snack bars contain only 70 calories and zero refined sugar. They’re the perfect afternoon pick-me-up, especially before a workout. The recipe is fab as is, but sometimes we like to up the wow-factor by swapping the vanilla protein for chocolate. No regrets.
Walnut Mushroom Taco Lettuce Wraps
These Walnut Mushroom Taco Lettuce Wraps are the epitome of summer vegan snacks. They’re light and refreshing with the perfect amount of spice. Prep your marinade ahead of time for quick and easy assembly. Delish!
Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Cream
Anyone who thinks raw vegan snacks are boring has never had this Chocolate Coconut Milk Ice Cream. It’s perfect for after-dinner dessert cravings and its nutty flavor is even better than traditional chocolate ice cream. Prep it the night before to achieve the perfect frozen texture.
Raw Vegan Banana Pudding
Is it breakfast? Is it dessert? This Raw Vegan Banana Pudding is whatever you want it to be. No matter when you eat it, it’s a healthy vegan snack that’s easy to make (we love any excuse to use a food processor!). It's also nutritious, and refreshing. The recipe calls for cashews, but you could easily swap for almonds or another one of your favorite nuts. And be sure to get creative with the toppings.
Mashed Chickpea Salad
Looking for raw salads that are high in protein and super filling? Look no further. Mashed Chickpea Salad is your new best friend. It’s quick and easy to make and just a few bites will tame your hungry tum.
Rise and Shine Smoothie
This raw vegan snack is called the Rise and Shine Smoothie, but it’s a powerful pick-me-up for any time of day. The frozen banana creates a smooth and creamy texture while the cinnamon and medjool dates provide a yummy natural sweetness that will keep you steering clear of those donuts.
Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake Bites
We can't say enough about these strawberry-infused healthy vegan snacks. They're a cute, tasty, and an easy raw food snack that’s bound to impress at any event. But it’s still totally reasonable to keep a stash in the fridge for yourself.
