{Review + Giveaway} Boxgreen Subscription ~ Better Snacking Starts Here

Following our first discovery of Boxgreen snack box subscription in April, we have since been enjoying healthier snacks at home without having to include these into our weekly grocery list and wasting time scrutinising into pack after pack of packaging labels at the supermarket.  I sometimes do buy junk food, especially if it’s for myself.  But the very basic rule is to put them back onto the shelves if anything spells “Made in China” (except for my cannot-let-go Maling Luncheon Meat and canned Ter Ka).  Sigh!

Right here, we have the snack box for June’s subscription and I’m very excited to share how delightfully crunchy and naturally sweet my favourite flavour ~ Coco Berry Smoothie is (was because I’ve finished it in one morning).

All snacks are natural with no preservatives and BoxGreen works with a nutritionist to come up with new snacks each month.  From their initial start up of 80 boxes each day to the current 500 boxes daily, it resonates the built-up voice of many who are now choosing healthier eating and who wants to know what they put inside their body.

Boxgreen ~ June ’15

Peanut Pretzel Muddy Bites | Pretzels, Chocolate Chips, Peanuts, Cashews

“Something salty, something crunchy, something sweet.”  This sounds like the perfect snack to bring out for an outing with the kids.  However, both the kids and I didn’t get to sample Peanut Pretzel Muddy Bites because my dear beloved brought it to office for his personal consumption (without asking me for “permission”).  Humph!  I told u he’s a nut-lover earlier right?

Coco Berry Smoothie | Toasted Coconut Flakes, Cranberries, Pineapple Cubes

Coconut reminds me of the beach or Changi Village Food Centre.  It’s a must-have drink at either locations.  So what does one do when the cooling coconut drink served in it’s husk is not readily available?  Simply grab a pack of Coco Berry Smoothie to ease the craving!   I had this combination of sweet crunchy toasted coconut flakes, dried cranberries and sweet pineapple cubes added into my morning serving of Kefir milk.  As the Kefir milk is served cold without added sugar (except milk), coupling it with sweet and delightful bites makes it a rich and wholesome breakfast for that morning rush.

Pina Okinawa | Edamame, Pineapple Cubes

Both K and R are big fans of edamame beans.  We usually keep a frozen pack at home for afternoon tea time.  Simply boil it (without thawing) for a few minutes, rinse them under cold running water for a minute.  Then serve!  Each of them are able to eat a big 10-cm bowl of edamame beans by themselves.  I’d be broke if they eat this way at the restaurants.  It’s the first time I’ve come across dried edamame beans.  This packet of Pina Okinawa has a little savoury flavour to the light and crunchy beans.  Paired with the sweet pineapple cubes, the combination is a potent combination of sweet and savoury delight.  It’s just like going to the cinema and not being able to decide whether you would like a box of all-sweet or all-salty popcorn to enjoy the movie with.  You end up getting a half-half mix most of the time for the best of both worlds!

Here, this is the usual milk Kefir I served for the kids, topped with Pina Okinawa, dried apricots and 3 marshmallows for them to savour.

Tart & Tangy Appleberry | Dried Apple Bits & Cranberries

With the scorching heat from the current hot days, I got the kids to make iced popsicles using Kefir yoghurt and allowed them a packet of Boxgreen snack to be added into it. They read each of the 4 flavours from June’s subscription box and decided on Tart & Tangy Appleberry.  Together with their favourite basil seeds, we instantly gathered all the ingredients within 5 minutes and started pouring into the popsicle mould from Daiso.  The milk Kefir was of course, prepared and left to ferment the night before.  It’s funny how a simple exercise like this can make the kids very happy.  They were just very satisfied mixing their own “recipe” and “setting” it into moulds.  ❤

Here is R, carefully spooning the contents with full concentration so as to minimize wastage.  Every drop counts, you know?!  ^.^  R doesn’t like cranberries as much and hence had lesser of it added compared to the dried apple bits.  I had to control him in case K get left behind with just cranberries!

20150629_181414r

I secretly added more dried cranberries into each popsicle mould when the kids weren’t looking.  What they don’t know, wouldn’t be bad for them.  As expected, they finished up everything over two nights.  Why am I such an evil mum?  ;b

20150701_203513_0r

On the same night, this is a video of R enjoying his homemade creation.  I can say all I wanted to say about how nice and yummilicious the Kefir yoghurt is but you may not believe me still.  Well, this video will do the talking instead.  With his favourite and healthier snacks added into the “ice cream”, he’s just more than glad to slurp up everything in order to reach the snacks.  Does he look like he hated it?  ;p
