Let me guess. You are trying to eat a little healthier after all that sweet December craziness and perhaps put chips and candy on hold for a while, but you still want something good to snack on in front of a movie this weekend? Well, we’ve got you covered. We have created a snack platter that leaves nothing behind and that you can toss together in 15 minutes. Fresh fruit, nuts, carrot sticks, dark chocolate, nut butter truffles and a little peanut butter cinnamon dip. Sounds good? It is! And here below is a little video where we show how to make it.
We actually recorded this last year but forgot to share. Our little assistant Noah looks so tiny and sooo cute. Now that we’ve showed you how to make it, go create that snack platter and crash in the couch with your family, friends or pets. And if you have any movie recommendations, please share!
A Healthy Movie Night Snack Platter
All the fruit on the platter are just suggestions, you can of course add anything you wish. We do like the mix of truffles, crunchy carrots, crispy apple, nuts, dark chocolate (super delicious to dip in the nut butter) and a citrus fruit.
Nut Butter Balls
15 soft dates, pitted
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp peanut butter
50 g / 1/2 cup rolled oats
3 tbsp desiccated coconut
3 tbsp cacao powder
1 pinch sea salt
4 tbsp finely chopped hazelnuts or desiccated coconut
Add the ingredients to a food processor and mix until everything comes together into a sticky dough. Roll 20-25 small balls between the palms of your hand. Cover them in chopped hazelnuts or coconut. If it doesn’t stick, you can dip each ball in cold water before covering them with the nuts. Store in the fridge while preparing the other snack platter ingredients.
Snack Platter Elements
3 carrots, peeled and cut into sticks
2 apples, sliced
2 kiwi fruits, halved
a handful nuts and raisins of choice
a handful physalis/inca berries
80 g / 3 oz dark chocolate, broken into large bits
Nut butter balls (see recipe above)
Peanut Butter Dip
100 ml / 1/2 cup peanut butter
2-4 tbsp water
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
Make the peanut butter dip by stirring together peanut butter, a splash of water and cinnamon. You can add a little maple syrup if you like it sweeter. Place it in the middle of the platter.
Place all other elements around the dip and fill up until the platter is full. Enjoy!
