Rainbow Trail Mix

Trail mixes are a favourite go-to snack in my house. There are so many ways to switch things up and make a trail mix that reflects your family’s preferences – and even interests, like with our Star Wars Trail Mix. This Rainbow Trail Mix has been a big hit in our home and I hope it will be in yours as well!

After making our rainbow spaghetti and fresh rainbow salsa, I knew I wanted to come up with a fun rainbow snack idea that also emphasized the concept of “eating a rainbow” as a way to ensure the kids were eating a variety of fruits and vegetables.

While a more sugar-filled rainbow trail mix would be a great treat, this fruit-and-seed based rainbow trail is one both you and the kids can agree on.

First, gather your ingredientss:

Melt the candy melts in the microwave in 20 second bursts, stirring thoroughly between each heating. Add a bit of shortening or coconut oil to loosen the candy melts if they seem stiff.

Drizzle the melted candy melts over top of the pretzels and set in the fridge to dry and harden. Meanwhile, mix all of the other ingredients in a large bowl.

Once the candy-coated pretzels are dried, add them to the bowl, give it a final mix and portion out into your serving containers.

Of course, you can swap out my choices for any of your own preferences – I personally loved the contrast between chewy & crunchy, tart & sweet, and the addition of the sweet/salty pretzels to a mostly healthy snack.

How would you customize your own rainbow trail mix?
