Strawberry Banana Mason Jar Mix

I am a major snacker.  I love to eat in general, but sometimes I would much rather sit down with a snack than have a meal.  That’s especially true when I am watching a movie or even blogging.  Some days I feel like I snack all day long and since I try to keep track of my calorie intake, healthier choices have been where it’s at for me lately.  This strawberry banana mason jar mix is literally the easiest snack you will ever make.

Here’s What You Need:
  • Plain popcorn
  • Dried cranberries or dried cherries

Strawberry Banana Mason Jar Mix5

  • Freeze dried strawberries and bananas

Strawberry Banana Mason Jar Mix1

  • Kashi brand Heart to Heart cereal

Strawberry Banana Mason Jar Mix4

Mix ingredients together in a bowl and transfer into to mason jars. That’s it.

It sounds awesome, right?  And it doesn’t get much easier than that.

What’s your favorite healthy snack?

  1. I love be that you used a mason jar for this and am so going to try to make now 😉

  2. We made healthy “mixes” for our 4 year old all the time. We usually add nuts and dark chocolate chips. Never thought to put them in a mason jar though!

  3. That looks so good. I wish I had some of that on our Spring break road trip. My favorite snack is a mix of cashews, almonds and dried cranberries.

  4. That does look delish, and easy. Nuts are my favorite healthy snack, but fruit is a super close second (most any kind will do!).

  5. That looks good. And totally a non-guilty treat!

  6. I’m a snacker, too. Carrots, grapes or boiled peanuts are my usual go-tos. That mix looks good, though!

  7. Cute idea!

    My favorite healthy snack is strawberries, blueberries, and green grapes!

  8. This looks solo good!! And I could take that to work with me too, great recipe!!

  9. OMG sign me up, I want that! I so love a good Mason jar gift!

  10. This is such a cute idea and recipe. I’m a bit partial to snacking too 🙂

  11. oh, that looks really good! My boys would love that for after school snack!

  12. Looks yummy and healthy! I love mason jars, too. I have them all over my house..LOL!

  13. We do a lot of snacks here, only I have them all in jars separately. We mix them into a snack bag and take them with us.

  14. It does sound awesome. What a healthy snack mix that I don’t have to feel guilty about enjoying!

  15. Now this looks amazing! But you know me, I love all things strawberry!

  16. now that is a snack I can dig into and enjoy. I love adding freeze dried fruits to my snacks and cereals!

  17. It looks like a super-healthy alternative to what I’ve been snacking on. Problem is I’d have to hide it from the kids – they’d steal it!

  18. Yummy! I just love cranberries and this recipe is super simple to make!

  19. I’m a big snacker as well! This would work perfect for a quick breakfast!

  20. This is an awesome healthy snack. I would eat this for sure.

  21. That looks delicious! There’s nothing better than something that’s healthy AND tastes delicious. I’m not a rabbit food fan.

  22. I am really into using jars for salads and snacks. It is a great way to reuse cool looking jars. Your snack looks really yummy.

  23. That looks really good, a snack my kids would love minus the freeze dried fruit. We actually picked some up at Publix the other day and none of us could get past the texture. I have a texture phobia, it freaks me out! But everything else great!

  24. Sadly my snack choices are rarely healthy, but I do enjoy a good morning smoothie! Love the Mason Jars to keep portion size in check! 🙂

  30. Oh wow, that is the perfect snack, Just the right amount of sweetness!

  31. This looks like an awesome snack. Typically a healthy snack that we eat are usually fruits. We are a huge fruit loving family. This is a great way to add variety!

  32. Well, that looks amazing! and so simple!

  33. NOM, NOM, NOM! Mind if I come over? Maybe have you make me like 12 of these? 😉

  34. I love a good trail mix. The mason jar is gorgeous for pictures, but I’d probably just toss mine in a plastic container. The recipe looks wonderful!

  35. It looks pretty! I love snacks or meals that look pretty. I am a snacker too and this would be a lot better for me than some of the things I choose to snack on.

  36. This looks like a great combo of favorite flavors! The dried cherries and strawberries would be favorites at my house! Love the mason jars too…but, then again, I do have a slight OCD issue with them. 🙂

  37. I am snacking with popcorn while am blogging right now. I also love banana/strawberry in a smoothie. I missed my smoothies too.

  38. This is a great snack idea. I have tons of mason jars leftover from my son’s wedding.

  39. That does sound like a healthy snack! I have been known to snack instead of having a meal–no good I know-but such is life! What I have been snacking on-today anyway–grapes and matzoh with cream cheese w/chives–Hopefully I will make dinner for myself tonight!

  40. Great idea and sounds so yummy! I love that you put it in a mason jar!

  41. That. I need that! It looks delicious, and yeah. I think you’ve probably made the easiest recipe ever.

  42. Way clever and now I am jonesing for some!

  43. This looks delicious! I love anything that’s easy

  44. I’d love this. I can’t get my kids to like dried fruit as much. It looks like such a great snack!

  45. OMG! That looks so good (and so easy to make!) I work all day in my car and don’t have time to eat. Instead I try to snack. This looks like a delicious one!

  46. I love the different things I learn from your blog daily and now this looks delish and easy to do – yum and thanks

  47. That sounds so good! I love freeze dried fruit. I have a tendency to overbuy when it comes to produce, so I’m happy that it doesn’t go bad as quickly.

  48. How cute would this be at a Strawberry Shortcake party? I know my kids and I would gobble it all up.

  49. I love love this idea! I love anything that involves Mason Jars and this is too cute!

  50. This looks yummy! I love easy snacks like this, and anything in mason jars.

  51. Such an easy, fun idea – plus it’s great to take as on the go snack

  52. That is a super cute idea and I may have to use this for a wedding shower I’m helping with, her colors would work good with this idea.

  53. I love this idea! I adore dried cranberries and if you added some almonds to this, it would be perfect for me!

  58. This is so cute and great! We are ditching all the crud and bad snacks so this is perfect.

  60. Oh I am adding this to my list of snacks for my long work days! Thanks for sharing

  61. Oh, yum! This looks so yummy – and cute enough for a gift too. My favorite healthy snack is almonds.

  62. I never thought to add dried fruit into popcorn. That sounds like a really tasty snack idea!

  63. I love that Mason jar recipes and their use are so popular now. When I was a little girl we used them for so many things, mostly to drink out of, and it had this stigma attached to it that you were poor because your family had to reuse the canning jars.

  64. What an easy snack! And so delicious too!

  65. This is a great idea. I’ll have to try this mix.

  66. I love using mason jars. I make a lot of individual pies in mason jars for picnics. It’s a huge hit!

  67. I love this. I frequently put snacks in the jars for myself but something about seeing yours said hey ” girl make a gift basket ” so that is what I will be doing 🙂 Thanks for sharing

  72. I love to snack on bananas and apples.

  73. Looks like a tasty and healthy snack. Easy to eat on the go.

  74. I like how the Popcorn was added to the mix. I would add a few drops of honey to sweeten the deal 🙂

  75. That does sound like a wonderful snack. Popcorn is a favorite of mine.

  76. This looks like a great snack for kids!

  77. That looks like a fin snack indeed! there’s something about munching on something crunchy that is blissfully therapeutic 🙂

  78. That looks delicious! And everything always looks cuter in a mason jar.

  79. I love that cereal!! I am a huge fan of the Kashi line altogether, I think. This sounds like a great snack and something we need to look into here. My girls keep busting into the “snack drawer” because they can now climb a chair and reach it.. it’s like a treasure chest for them….
    so I’ve got to make sure that the only things in there are all healthy.
    Great idea!!

  80. how lovely! also makes for a great snack when on roadtrip. My favorite healthy snack lately is a handblended frozen ripe bananas.

  82. I love this idea! Gotta try this soon! 🙂

  83. What a great combination! My family would love this!

  84. Yum! I love simple and delicious recipes like this!!

  85. I love to snack as well. My favorite are combination of nuts, kashi cereal, and fruits! I love dried cranberries too.

  86. My son LOVES all things strawberry banana. I think he’d love this. I’d probably try substituting the Kashi cereal with some honey nut O’s or something, though. I’ve never been a fan of any Kashi product I’ve tried—and I’ve tried a few!

    and I am a big snacker over meals too.

  133. I love Mason jar SNacks too becaue they’re pre-measured and easier to hold while you’re snacking. This is the perfect combination.
