The Smartfood brand is all about making smart snack choices. Smartfood brand offers a line of snacks including popcorn, puffed corn and popped chip varieties. All of their prodcuts have no artificial colors or flavors.
Last month they teamed up with Jody Denton (who has more than 30 years of experience in independent restaurants working for several of the most famous chefs and restaurateurs in the country) to name the SMARTest CITIES IN THE U.S.A.
The SMARTest Cities in America have been named based on five criteria that align with the Smartfood goal of living and eating well. Each letter stands for a specific area of focus: Savvy, Motivated, Accomplished, Responsible and Thoughtful… get it S.M.A.R.T.?
In conjunction with this promotion, here is an interview with Chef Denton with some tips he had about eating and living SMART and more about the SMARTest cities in America campaign.
I looked over a bunch of recipes he created, and had to share with you this delicious-sounding recipe for a Honey and Blackberry Greek Yogurt Dip…
Recipe: Honey-Blackberry Greek Yogurt Dip
3 Cup(s) Greek yogurt
1/2 pint(s) blackberries, fresh or frozen
3 Tablespoon(s) Honey
2 Tablespoon(s) fresh lemon juice
1 Pinch(s) Salt
1. In a mixing bowl, smash the blackberries with a fork.
2. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the yogurt, honey, lemon and salt.
3. When ready to serve, spoon the blackberry mixture into the center of the yogurt.
Gently fold the blackberries into the yogurt, but don’t mix completely.
4. Serve with Smartfood Cinnamon Brown Sugar Multigrain Popped Chips.
