Full Answer

To make frozen yogurt pops, a person can add seasonal berries, a bit of milk and low-fat yogurt in a blender, put the mixed ingredients into ice pop mold trays and let the yogurt pops freeze. People looking for protein-rich snacks can make roasted chickpeas by preheating the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and washing, draining and blot-drying a 15.5-ounce chickpea can. After adding 1 tablespoon of olive oil and some salt, the next step is spreading the chickpeas on a baking sheet and baking them for around 30 minutes until they turn golden and crispy.

A pack of popcorn consisting of around 100 calories makes a great snack for each family member. Shelled peanuts and pistachios provide protein and fiber, while a bowl of around 15 pieces of Tamari almonds offers 150 calories.

To make Parmesan pita chips, cut four whole-wheat pitas into wedge shapes, add 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil, put the pitas on a baking sheet, and spread around 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese. The last step is baking the chips for 12 minutes in an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
