Trail Mix In A Cone Dairy-Free

kiddy trail mix in an ice cream cone


Most every afternoon, at about 3pm, my two boys beg for trail mix. 

And nope, I don’t mean a pre-packaged dairy-free trail mix. 

I mean a put-it-together-yourself trail mix. 

Not sure if my kids like making it or eating it more. 

But nevertheless, this is an afternoon tradition at our house that isn’t going away anytime soon. 

As soon as the kids get my nod,

off they head to the pantry to conjure up whatever fun trail mix they can dream up that day. 

Best part? 

I get a mommy break from the kitchen. 

The kids have been able to do this themselves since they were toddlers, ha ha. 

Not promising there won’t be a mess or that they will put everything away when they are younger, 

but we will get there. 

Afternoon kid-made trail mix is still totally worth it. 

My favorite? That was the day they realized cones would make great bowl for their trail mix. 

Now that was genius. What kid can’t pass up an edible bowl? 

Below are some of the snacks my kids include in their trail mix. 


organic cereal


mini chocolate chips (affiliate)

mini marshmallows


I hope your kiddos can have fun making their own dairy-free trail mix soon!
