Stuck for healthy snack ideas? We’ve got 4 easy rice cake topping ideas for you to give a go this week – they’re super delicious and anything but boring!
Avocado Lime Mousse
Anything food related that involves avocados is going to be a good idea. Here we’ve done something a little different from the usual smashed avo, creating a sweet version to cure those 3pm sugar cravings. If straight avo is more your thing, we don’t blame you. Up your nutrients by adding a scatter of Organic Paleo Savoury Mix. Sweet or savoury, whichever way you like it, we assure you this is going to be satisfying.
Mash the avocado in a small bowl with a fork until smooth. Squeeze in lime juice, then add in the lime zest and rice malt syrup, stirring until combined. Leave your mousse to chill for a half hour or so to thicken. Spread over rice cakes and sprinkle with desiccated coconut.
With Hummus or Dips
Of course. We always have a jar of this basic hummus recipe in the fridge. It’s also great for dipping sweet potato fries! Or get this curry hummus recipe here. This vegan version of a kiwi classic – onion dip (below), is also a winner with rice cakes.
Peanut Butter with Chia Jam and Banana
This PB and jam one is also acceptable for breakfast, and a much healthier take on the traditional PB and Jelly. Use your fave nut or seed butter. We’ve used Smooth Peanut Butter here, but almond butter would taste awesome too.
This 3 ingredient chia jam takes all of 10 minutes to make and will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days. There’s no added sugar either. Chia seeds are the superhero here, loaded with functional benefits. Just 2 tablespoons of chia seeds have a massive 11 grams of fibre, 4 grams of plant protein and 5 grams of omega fatty acids! Add chia seeds to your breakfast bowls and smoothies, or make chia puddings to cram extra goodness into your day.
Yoghurt with Banana Buckwheat and Maple
For those with a sweet tooth, this combination of coconut yoghurt, bananas and maple syrup is the goods. You’ll get some plant-based probiotics for your gut, plus a sustainable sugar hit to keep your energy levels up until dinner. We’ve topped ours off with Paleo Crumble Cacao Spice and Buckwheat.
Depending on your levels of hunger, spread how ever many rice cakes with a slathering of coconut yoghurt and then top with remaining ingredients.
