I love creating dips that are high in nutrition and kid appeal, and this Coconut Peanut Butter Dip recipe is one my family loves. What’s even better is seeing my kids’ faces when they find their favorite snacks next to a little bit of this dip inside their Mini Snackbox.
Snack time can be a challenge when it comes to the logistics of packing some of our kids’ favorite liquid snacks, like yogurt, applesauce, and dips. To solve that problem, I’ve teamed up with Yumbox, the makers of one of my favorite lunchboxes, snack box, and insulated lunch totes.
First, let me show you how I make this dip, and you’ll soon discover why we love the MiniSnack box so much.
The ability to carry a dip in a container without leaks, huge! I can’t tell you how many times I want to just grab something, throw it in my purse or kids’ backpack, and head out the door! But, alas, before the MiniSnack, I’d pack a few containers or worse, zip baggies for each snack. The MiniSnack has two compartments plus a third dip well, it’s compact, and lightweight.
Gone are the days where you have to purchase single-serve yogurts, apple sauces, or dips! You can buy a larger container and pack an appropriate serving plus other items in a single, leakproof box.
Because, let’s face it, kids like to dip their fruits and veggies; so shouldn’t of those delicious dips be made portable?
What’s great about this dip is that it is minimally sweetened, and it can easily be made ahead of time. As a matter of fact, I prefer to refrigerate it for a few hours, so the consistency becomes more like mousse! And, it’s beyond delicious. Side note: I once used this to frost my paleo chocolate cake it’s that good.
What I’ve been doing all summer long is making my kids’ camp lunches ahead of time in the Yumbox Trays (either the original or the Panino) and covering them with their storage lids. This way, I have a bit more fridge space for all the other groceries, something I often run out of since I feed six people!
While I’m packing lunches, I make snacks. There is no such thing as being over-prepared when it comes to food in my world. As you know, when kids get hungry they want food on demand! I try to keep something like this coconut peanut butter dip and fruit skewers ready in the fridge for the kids to grab when they need a snack.
So, taking the MiniSnack with us on-the-go is never an issue, since it’s super compact and it fits just enough of this delicious dip as the perfect snack portion!
What do you like to pack for a snack that is “wet” and you look forward to packing in a MiniSnack box?Print
