I go to the gym most mornings but on the days I don’t, I pack my gym bag with water and sunscreen, throw in a snack, and hit the road for some outdoor exercise. Bananas are a great pre-workout snack – nature’s gift, but for something just as easy to throw in your gym bag this is my mango trail mix.
I keep all of the ingredients in my pantry at all times, usually for my muesli recipe, but this recipe takes about ohh 10 seconds to throw together. The organic shredded coconut makes all the difference as it’s super moist and fresh. I used some dried mango that I recently purchased in Fiji but any dried fruit of your choice would be just as yummy. Think outside the norm. You could also add toasted almonds for some extra protein.
1/3 cup puffed rice
1/3 cup organic shredded coconut
1/3 cup bran flakes
2 pieces dried mango diced
1 tablespoon pepitas
- Just mix everything together. Done
* Play around with the dried fruit you use. Dried cranberries are delicious to add to the mix but be mindful of not adding too much sugar, this is a healthy trail mix.
** If you’re not in a rush try toasting the shredded coconut which adds more depth of flavour.
