Healthified Trail Mix

Posted on

UPDATE: You can now find even more healthified recipes & tips at


I have great news for you! There is no longer a need to buy overpriced, bagged trail mix. Making your own trail mix is not only healthier but it is also cheaper and much yummier (since you can put in whatever ingredients you like the most).

How did I healthify it?

1. Instead of dried fruit sweetened with white sugar, I used unsweetened dried fruit.

2. Instead of milk chocolate chips, I used dark chocolate.

3. Instead of peanuts, I added almond and pecans. (Peanuts aren’t necessarily unhealthy, but almonds and pecans are a better option in my opinion.)

Trail Mix is a great snack and super easy to throw together. It’s also a great on-the-go snack.


1/2 cup dried mango

1/2 cup dried cherries

1/2 cup dark chocolate pieces

1/2 cup almonds

1/2 cup pecans

1/2 cup dried plantains

Throw all the ingredients into a jar with a lid and shake to mix up.

Tip: When you are buying dried fruit, be sure to check the ingredients. Lots of dried fruits are made with plain ole’ white sugar-icky! Look for the ones that are either unsweetened or sweetened with cane juice. (Better yet, dehydrate your own!)


About HnB4life

Hello There ! My name is Tiffany and I am on the journey to find balance in life! Now, I’m not talking about anything kooky or mystical, but real true balance and health in all areas: physical, spiritual, and emotional. I figured I was not the only one looking for these things, and thus this blog was born. I am not an expert in all things healthy nor is my life 100% balanced. However, I have been on this journey for a quite a few years and have learned some things along the way. One of those things is that the start of a healthy and balanced life is a relationship with Jesus Christ, my Savior, my Friend, my Strong Tower, and my Balance in those completely unbalanced moments. If you’d like more information on knowing Jesus Christ, please click here Welcome Friend, I look forward to our journey together.
