Need a quick healthy homemade snack that you don’t have to bake?

Here are some of my favourite super easy raw, vegan, gluten free snack ideas that taste fantastic; are loaded with live enzymes and nutrients; and can be thrown together very quickly with simple ingredients in a blender or a food processor. These ideas can also be adapted and expanded for all kinds of flavourful variations.

DIPS AND SPREADS

The Blender Girl's Raw Vegan Spinach Edamame Dip

You can make nutritious raw dips in minutes in the blender or food processor by combining a variety of fresh or frozen vegetables, nuts, seeds, herbs and spices. Favourite ingredients I like to use are raw cashews, macadamias or almonds, and process them with things like edamame, sundried tomatoes, green peas, carrots, beetroot, broccoli stalks, cucumber, zucchini, basil, cilantro, parsley, garlic, ginger, chillis, lemon juice, lime juice, salt and pepper for great flavour. Pair these dips up with veggie sticks, chips, crispbread; or slather on pita bread, toast, tortillas for filling savoury snacks.

My favourite 5 minute raw dip recipes:

Raw Vegan Sun Dried Tomato and Red Pepper No Bean Hummus

Raw Vegan Edamame Spinach Dip

Raw Vegan Green Pea and Almond Chutney

Creamy Raw Vegan Spicy Cashew Dip

Raw Vegan Macadamia and Semi-Dried Tomato Pesto


KALE CHIPS

A handful of fresh raw kale chips is a green, nutritious alternative to conventional potato chips. They are not fried or baked; free from all of the carcinogens, additives and preservatives that plague most shrivelled potato chip packets; they are dehydrated, which preserves all of their natural enzymes and nutrients; and most importantly, they are absolutely scrumptious. You make kale chips by massaging any variety of kale with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and any herbs and spices of your choice to create all kinds of other delectable flavours. Try some chilli and salt, or apple cider vinegar and sea salt. I also like to make “nut rubs” with cashews and macadamias with herbs and spices. Don’t worry if you don’t have a dehydrator — you can slow cook kale chips in your oven on the very lowest setting for about 8-12 hours.

Here’s a couple of kale chip recipes to get you started:

SWEET FRUIT BALLS

For a quick sneaky indulgence, nothing beats raw vegan fruit balls that can be thrown together in your food processor combining a variety of dried fruits, nuts and seeds, juices, coconut, cold pressed oils, and spices. By using dates, figs, raisins or flax to bind these ingredients you can come up with all kinds of different taste sensations. The thing I love about these balls is that you don’t need any sweeteners to make these babies taste good. These make fantastic treats for school or office lunches.

Use these two recipes as a starting point for inspiration:

Raw Vegan Coconut Mango Balls (for nut-free ideas)

SMOOTHIES

Lastly, never forget the trusty smoothie for a quick easy healthy snack. The best thing about smoothies is that you can blend together what you have in the house! Some fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables with some filtered water, juice, vegan milks, and ice. Add some greens for an extra boost of goodness! Taste combinations for healthy smoothies are endless. ENJOY!
