Are you always looking for a healthy snack? What do you usually snack on? I am always on the look out for something different and I found Del Monte Fruit Cups on my shopping trip to Walmart. You can see my shopping trip in my Google+ album. The new fruits cups are easy and healthy. They taste awesome! I grabbed two of the Del Monte Diced Apples & Pears with Caramel Flavor and two of the Del Monte Diced Pears with Vanilla & Spice, that one was my favorite! They are only 60 calories per serving, gluten free, and does not include high fructose corn syrup! I could hardly believe they don't have any high fructose corn syrup in them, so many snacks these days have that in it.
When we got back from shopping it was time for lunch. My husband asked me to make him a cheese sandwich, so I did. I also gave him a Del Monte Pears with Vanilla & Spice Fruit Cup and can of soda. For lunch we do just about anything, but it's nice to have something quick and easy. I had a grilled cheese sandwich and one fruit cup of each flavor. My favorite was the Diced Pears with Vanilla & Spice!
These fruit cups would be perfect for a healthy snack with lunch, especially for school lunches! My kids and grandkids just love the fruit cups, as well as my husband and I. I thought I would have a little fun and make some Cinnamon Spice Muffins with the Del Monte Fruit Cups! I got out all my ingredients and mixed up the batter, then divided it into two batches, so I could put the Del Monte Diced Apples & Pears with Caramel Flavor in one and Del Monte Diced Pears with Vanilla & Spice in the other.
I melted some butter, mixed up some sugar and cinnamon. I dipped the muffins into the butter and then into the sugar/cinnamon mixture. After the muffins were done, we both had one and they were delicious!
