Simple Snacks

Kind people and busy too, 

Nothing beats a simple snack.  Here are some of my current favorites. 

Fill a small bowl with applesauce and heat it in the microwave.  Top with a sprinkling of cinnamon-sugar.  To make cinnamon-sugar: mix a ratio of 1 tablespoon cinnamon to 1/4 cup sugar.  

I keep a little shaker container full of cinnamon-sugar in the cupboard next to
the butter.  My little sister got me the shaker when I got married! 
Toast and butter a piece of bread; top with the cinnamon-sugar mixture listed above.

I steamed some raw milk in our milk-frother and added a little bit of hazelnut syrup
Cold Tea
Make according to these directions, or drop a bag or two of tea into a pitcher of cool or room temperature water and let it steep for at least 45 minutes.  Remove the tea bags (you can use them again) and enjoy the tea chilled or room temperature.

Some cool mint tea hits the spot on a hot day! 
Fruit Smoothie
Fill a blender or the cup of an immersion blender with any combination of the following: frozen fruit (strawberries, melon chunks, peaches, etc), fruit juice (I particularly like orange, cider or concord grape), milk, ice cubes, and a banana or two.  Blend thoroughly, adding ice or frozen fruit until it is the thickness you prefer.  To get real fancy, serve with umbrella straws!

Be sure to add the banana for a creamy, thick texture! 
What are your favorite simple snacks?  Share post-haste so we can all enjoy!

Snacking quickly,
