Mango Trail Mix

Trail Mix the Whole Family will Enjoy

One of our great customers stopped by the store and told us that she makes great tasting trail mix from granola, freeze dried fruits, and nuts. So, we decided to try out our own mix. The great part of making this mix was that it was easy and you know what goes into it, so you can make it as healthy as you want.

Here is how we made our homemade trail mix:

1 Cup Granola
1 Cup Nuts (We used 1/2 cup cashews and 1/2 cup almonds)
1 1/2 Cup Freeze Dried and/or Dehydrated Fruit (We used 1 cup Freeze Dried Mangos and 1/2 cup Banana Chips)

This is a simple way to make your own trail mix. The trail mix is quite tasty! The reason I like it is because of the contrasting tastes and textures. The granola and fruits are sweet and crunchy, while the nuts are salty and chewy. I know what I will be eating on my next scouting adventure, hike or roadtrip!
