8 Fun & Easy Dorm Room Snacks!

1. Frozen Yogurt Covered Fruit

 

Mix one cup of strawberries or blueberries with nonfat vanilla greek yogurt. Then freeze overnight for yummy goodness! These are available in stores, but they are typically packed with processed sugars. This simple recipe is the healthy way to go!

2. Peanut Butter Apple Sandwiches 

 

All you need are two circle-shaped apple slices and two tablespoons of peanut butter. Feel free to add raisins, shredded coconut, nuts or mini chocolate chips in the middle!

3. Avocado and Cucumber Slices

 

Slice the cucumber, add slices of avocado and sprinkle Tamari sauce on top! It's that easy!

4. Peanut Butter and Chocolate Stuffed Bananas 

 

Slice the middle of the banana, add peanut butter into the slice and sprinkle mini chocolate chips on top. Yum!

5. Create your own trail mix! 

 

First pick your nut choice, then seeds, dried fruit and last but not least, some treats! I love pecans, cashews, sunflower seeds, dried bananas, dried cherries, dark chocolate chips, sea salt and cinnamon in my trail mix!

6. Oatmeal

 

Instant oatmeal from the store is the best way to get a fast and yummy snack in your dorm! I recommend Nature's Path Organic Instant Hot Oatmeal, Wild Harvest Organic Instant Oatmeal, Target's Market Pantry Instant Oatmeal, Arrowhead Mills Instant Oatmeal or, my favorite, Quaker Instant Oatmeal. I always love to add honey, cinnamon, pecans and sliced peaches to my oatmeal for a little extra flavor and sweetness!

7. Breakfast Parfait 

 

You will need one cup of frozen blueberries, one cup nonfat plain greek yogurt, one cup of your favorite granola and one teaspoon of agave nectar. Put the frozen blueberries in a bowl in the microwave for about 3 minutes. In a small bowl or glass cup pour the blueberries and blueberry juice into the bottom. Then layer the cup with greek yogurt, agave nectar, granola and more berries on top. 

8. Kale Smoothie

 

You do need a blender for this, but it is totally worth it! You'll need 2 cups of kale leaves (stems removed), 3/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 cut up frozen banana, 1/4 cup of plain greek yogurt, 1/4 cup of frozen pineapple pieces, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter and 1-3 teaspoons of honey. Mix all ingredients in the blender until smooth. Add more milk to create your desired consistency.
