Love the Starbucks Cheese & Fruit Bistro Box? You can make these at home for so much less money. In fact, you can make 1 at home for what 1 costs you at Starbucks.
Need a quick lunch or snack while on the go? The protein box from Starbucks may be the answer! Now you can make this easy recipe at home.
Recently Starbucks has been adding more food items to their menu. They have seasonal favorites that they bring back each year and they have also expanded their breakfast and lunch menus. One of the newer additions are the boxed lunches they offer. They are perfectly portioned and great for grab and go lunches or even a quick snack.
One of the boxes is the protein box packed full of nutritional ingredients to fuel your body. It contains dried cherries, almonds, three types of cheese, apple slices and crackers. The great thing about the protein box is that it will fill you up with the right kind of nutrients minus all the junk.
The Starbucks protein box is easy to make at home and even customize. Don't like cherries? Use cranberries instead! Not a fan of almonds? Pecans do the job! I do not like green apples for snacking so I opted to use Fuji. If you need to store this for a few hours before serving Costco has some great pre-packaged apples that are great to use. Plus once you buy all the ingredients you can make two or three boxes for the small prices as one at Starbucks. Talk about good for you and your wallet!
