Nature Box | @naturebox Review & Sweeps!

I’m on a journey to a healthier life. Since I join the #cinchspiration team; I have decided to buy healthier snacks, food and even healthy drinks. Nature Box just came in time… they sent me a box with 6 Full sized Healthy Snacks to try out.

What is Nature Box? Nature box is a monthly subscription to a box filled with healthy snacks delivered to your door every month.

About Nature Box: Each month, your box will include 15 to 20 servings across 4 to 6 different Nature Box snacks. You can trust that their products will be made from the most wholesome ingredients and will be minimally processed, if at all. 

We tried all the snacks and it was surprisingly very YUMMY. This month’s Nature Box came with Sun-Ripped Peaches, Harvest Fruit Granola Mix, Citrus Kick Almonds, Apple Rings & Organic Mighty Mix. I didn’t like the apple rings but Victor did loved them. All the snacks are gone by now and I’m very please by the taste & size of the products. My favorite was the HARVEST FRUIT GRANOLA MIX. So I decided to bake a cupcake with it and the result was EXTRAORDINARY! The cupcake is a little dense but we loved it, even my little girl loved them.. so I believe is Kid APPROVED! Its’ egg free & about 130 Calories. Below is the quick recipe.
