This spring, The Healthy Shopper has handpicked a fun new snack with clean ingredients and touts the benefits of a creamy nut butter with a coconut twist.  Experts at “Unjunking your Junk Food,” the health savvy duo of Andrea Donsky, Registered Holistic Nutritionist, and Healthy Shopper co-founder Randy Boyer offer a couple of unique ideas for snacking this spring.

IMG_20150511_123234

This season the duo have taken two conventional snack foods and swapped them for alternatives with all natural ingredients.  The first option, Earth Balance P.B. Popps, is a delicious popcorn coated with oats and cuddled in a peanut butter cluster that make a yummy snack.  These crunchy nuggets are Non-GMO, Vegan, Dairy and Gluten-Free and have 0g trans fats.  This is one of those unique snacks that is a definite must try. I can guarantee you that once you open the bag that you won’t be able to stop at just one handful. The P.B. Popps are my new addiction!

They have also taken peanut butter, a traditional children’s favourite, and added a trendy coconut flavour.  “If you’re crazy for coconut, this one part all-natural peanut butter and one part organic extra virgin coconut oil blend is a tasty treat,” said Donsky.  Earth Balance Creamy Coconut and Peanut Spread is great on toast, in stir-fry dishes, smoothies and even as a warm dip for crisp apples or celery. Or if you are like me you could simply enjoy the creamy coconut and peanut butter straight out of the jar!

Both of these great products can be found at Loblaws.
