There are few things more fun than getting friends and family together to soak in the sunshine for a pool party. Like any get-together, the spotlight is typically on the snacks. Impress your guests with these wholesome, creative treats.
Here are four Base Culture pool party snacks ideas that are easy to make and sure to please every one of your guests.
- Paleo Rice Crispy Treats
Remember, we’re masters at imitating old favorites within the Paleo parameters. We love this healthy, flavorful Paleo chewy rice-less crispy treat recipe from Paleohacks. They’re easy to make (no baking required!), and the recipe calls for only four ingredients: macadamia nuts, raw almonds, honey, and a nut butter.
- Pina Colada Smoothie with Base Culture Banana Bread
Is there any drink more “summer” than a pina colada? These sweet smoothies look divine in mason jars with fun straws and berries on top for garnish. There are many recipe variations online, but this three-minute recipe from Our Paleo Life shares the five easy ingredients: coconut milk, pineapple, banana, shredded unsweetened coconut, and crushed ice. Simply blend together, and voila!
These smoothies, because of their inclusion of bananas, pair well with Base Culture’s sweet Banana Bread. To be extra fancy, chop a loaf into smaller pieces to sprinkle on top like you would with brownie bits on a milkshake!
- S'mores Bars featuring Base Culture’s Cinnamon Almond Butter
If you enjoy baking, or are throwing the pool party for a special occasion (such as a birthday!), the Paleo S’mores Bar is a fun summer-oriented option. The recipes call for more time in the kitchen, but it’s a worthwhile investment for the deliciousness that awaits. This recipe from A Clean Bake delves into the ingredients needed to make each element of the S’mores Bar, down to a recommendation of which Paleo cinnamon cookie makes the best graham cracker crust.
To make the S’mores Bar into more of a snack than a dessert, simply add Base Culture’s cinnamon almond butter to the crust base after it dries. These are sure to be a hit with the kids!
- Brownie Tray
For dessert, opt for easy and prep-free options such as Base Culture’s Cashew Butter Blondie. The brownie tray is an easy classic to have on the picnic table towards the end of the event. Base Culture features these chocolate brownie flavor variations at the moment: the nutty wonder of the Almond Butter Brownie, and the fruity, tangy Raspberry Cocoa flavor. This eclectic array of brownies and blondies offers something unique for all of your party guests!
Base Culture has you covered. It’s party time!
