Magic Bullet Snack Recipe Ideas

Jul6

TastyTuesday300pix Breakfast in Bed...take two for Tasty Tuesday

Ideas from my Magic Bullet Recipes Contest scaled over 130 strong, and I invite you to read through the comments if you need some great snack ideas this summer.

There were some of you who added quite a few recipe entries, and I sure wish I could have you as a winner as well, but thanks to all of you for the great ideas. Here were the four winners. Enjoy these great snack recipe ideas.

1. My Potamus’s Pizza

Shannon – My three year old doesn’t like vegetables so I make up pizza recipes all of the time. Here is his favorite. 

  • One whole wheat pita (the round kind, not the pocket kind)
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce pureed (the Magic Blender would work great) with two fresh basil leaves and a small handful of fresh spinach leaves
  • Handful of mozzarella cheese
  • Small handful of fresh spinach leaves (I get this in the organic bulk food section near the salad)
  • 1/4 of small can of diced chicken (or use leftover chicken of any type that you might have)
  • Drizzle of olive oil

Take the whole wheat pita and smear the sauce all on top, nice and thick. Add the cheese, spinach and chicken then drizzle lightly with olive oil. You can add any other veggies or meats on top that you or your kids like (I have even used carrots and peas before and got away with it). I like to use fresh. Bake at 350 degrees until everything is bubbly, melted and starts to brown.
My boys gobble this down and my three year old will eat anything on a pizza! This makes it healthier. This is also super yummy cut up in squares for an appetizer for a party.

2. Homemade BBQ sauce

Rachella -  This is spicy and hot. My family loves this!
  • 2 lg cans diced tomatoes
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 T Tabasco sauce (can omit this if you don’t like it hot)
  • 1/2 Cup lime juice
  • 1/2 Cup orange juice
  • 1/8 t ginger

Add all ingredients together and puree until smooth.

3. Bruschetta
Amber – A favorite snack around here (or pre-dinner appetizer or sometimes just as dinner!)
Ingredients:

  • 1 baguette
  • Good extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, cut in half
  • 2 tomatoes (preferably home-grown or vine-ripened)
  • 1 8oz ball of fresh mozzarella
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves
  • Salt, to taste

Directions: Preheat oven to 350F. Place tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, salt and a bit of oil into Magic Bullet. Chop coarsely, then place mixture in refrigerator. Cut baguette on diagonal into 1 inch thick slices (this gives maximum surface area for your topping). Place slices on cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Bake until golden brown. Remove from oven and rub each slice with cut side of garlic clove. Top each slice with tomato mixture and return to oven until cheese is melted. Serve hot!

4. Creamy Fruit Popsicles

KeriLyn@SheSaved – We would have to much fun with one of these Magic Bullets! My kids LOVE Popsicles
and we make one that would work wonderful with the Magic Bullet.

  • 1-2 bananas
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • 10 oz. package frozen sliced strawberries
  • 8 oz. can pineapple and syrup

Blend all ingredients (in the Magic Bullet if you have one!)
Pour into popsicle molds or paper cups (with sticks)
Freeze …and wait! YUM!

  3. Yum to all those! I don’t have a magic bullet but do have small, one-cup blender jars that I use ALL the time! It’s amazing what a difference the size of a container can make – I blend, chop and use many things I wouldn’t otherwise.

  8. This is my first time linking up with Tasty Tuesday. I notice that there is a red x by my post, but not by any other posts. Is this because I am new?

    Thanks for your blogging.

    The red “x” only shows up to you as the author of the post. It means that you have the option to delete it if you need to but no one else sees it, so you’re all good. :)
