3 Travel Snacks

Cayla Gallagher

Beat travel hunger pangs by packing fruit-infused water, trail mix chocolate, and homemade pizza pockets!

Fruit-Infused Water


  • Fresh strawberries

  • 1 lemon

  • Fresh basil

  • Water


  1. Slice the strawberries and lemons into thin slices and place in a water bottle. Tear a few basil leaves and add to the bottle.

  2. If traveling via airplane, keep the ingredients in the bottle just as they are and purchase a bottle of water after going through security at the airport. That way you're able to enjoy your infused water without worrying about the liquid limit! Otherwise, add some water right away and let steep for 5-10 minutes, for the flavours to infuse into the water.

Trail Mix Chocolates


  • Dark or white chocolate, melted

  • Nuts, seeds and raisins

  • Dried fruit and candy

  • Mini cupcake pan liners


  1. Place mini cupcakes liners into a mini cupcake pan and filled them with melted chocolate.

  2. Top with some nuts and seeds (if you're trying to be healthy) or candy and dried fruit (for a sweeter treat).

  3. Place them in the freezer until the chocolate has set. These are super handy for traveling because they can be transported in a Ziploc bag and are small enough to give you a quick pick-me-up when you're tired and on the go.

DIY Pizza Pockets


  • Cooking spray

  • Pizza dough

  • Flour

  • Your desired fillings (we used pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, basil, cheddar cheese, pesto and cooked chicken)

  • Olive oil


  1. Spray a regular-sized cupcake pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

  2. Dust your hands with flour and flatten about 1/4 cup of pizza dough into a pancake. Place your desired fillings in the center and wrap the dough around them, sealing the buns closed.

  3. Place the buns seam side down in the cupcake pan and brush the surface with olive oil. Bake at 450F for 20 minutes.

  4. Allow the buns to cool, then pack into your bags and eat on-the-go! These are much easier to eat than traditional pizza and can easily be reheated in a microwave, heating for 15-20 seconds.
