We’re only halfway through summer, which means there’s still plenty of time to enjoy the beach. All you need for a great beach day is a blanket or towel, an umbrella or tent, one of these awesome beach games, a drink or two, and most importantly - snacks!
The best beach snacks are tasty, quick to pack, and not too finicky to eat (because, sand). While we love chips as much as the next person, prioritizing healthy and nourishing snacks will help you feel good and energized all day long.
Try one (or all!) of these healthy beach snacks for your next adventure.
1. Fresh fruit
Take advantage of summer fruit by loading up your beach wagon with washed berries, peaches, cherries, apricots, or pre-cut watermelon. Fruit isn’t just sweet and easy to eat - it’s a hydrating snack that’s full of fibre and vitamins.
2. Protein bites
For an easy and delicious hit of protein, try our recipe for No-Bake Vanilla Spice Protein Bites. These two-bite balls are made in minutes with only a handful of ingredients, and they can be kept in your cooler until snack time.
3. Nuts or Trail Mix
Nuts/trail mix is the classic outdoor snack for a reason - they’re healthy (with protein and healthy fats to fill you up), require zero prep, and can just be kept in a bag or container for easy grazing.
4. Hummus with veggies or pita
If you have the time to peel and chop a few vegetables, make room in your cooler for a container of hummus, too. Hummus is high in fibre, protein, and heart-healthy fats.
If you’re really craving something salty and snackable, swap out your bag of chips with a bag of popcorn! The healthiest popcorn is made ahead at home, with a light sprinkling of salt and butter. If you buy it at the store, look for brands with natural ingredients and light seasoning.
6. Rumble Supershake
We saved the best for last! Rumble Supershake is the perfect healthy beach snack, because it’s nutritionally-balanced, quick to pack, and easy to drink. With 20 grams of protein, 2500mg of Omega 3’s, and 5 grams of fibre, Rumble will keep you fuelled for even the most epic beach day. Throw a couple in your cooler, and you’re set until dinner.
