List Of Snacks That Start With S

We focused our snacking this week on the letter S. I am thankful that this was the easiest letter to learn this week! Throughout this past week, that was one of the easiest things for me.

I had a very difficult time trying to get my 18 month old to nap nearly every day. A nap would ruin her ability to get to bed by her bedtime if she took one until about 3 or 4 in the afternoon. We’ve been dealing with that problem. We’ve also had delicious and easy snacks.

This challenge has so far been completed with all the letters of the alphabet. You can catch up with the other letters. In case you missed it, you can read about the letter R here, or head over to the A to Z series homepage!

List Of Snacks That Start With S

1. Strawberries

Snacks That Start With S

Depending on the cultivar and growing conditions, strawberries have an overall conical heart shape. A strawberry is distinguished from a berry and a true fruit by the presence of seeds on its exterior rather than its interior.

Upon full ripeness, they are bright red and have a juicy yet firm texture. Strawberries maintain a balanced acidity level, regardless of the sugar content that varies from sweet-tart to candy-like.


Strawberries are very versatile fruits that can be cooked or eaten raw, making them suitable for both sweet and savory dishes. It is possible to use them interchangeably with most other berries, but they are usually more moist, so some recipes may have to be altered.

The addition of cornstarch or reducing the extra juice in strawberry pie filling, for instance, is usually necessary to thicken the filling. Strawberry jam, jelly, and other confections can be used in salads or as an ingredient in other dishes.

For ice cream and cheesecake, or to pour over cocktails, cook them down into a compote or syrup. Suitable pairings include strawberries, citrus, melon, rhubarb, rhubarb and flavored leafy herbs, vanilla, cinnamon, sugar, almonds, sour cream, ricotta, mascarpone, yogurt, balsamic vinegar, amaretto, champagne, Kirsch, Grand Marnier and Kirschwasser.

Nutrition Facts

Water makes up 91% of strawberries, and carbohydrates make up 7.7%. Only a small amount of fat and protein are found in strawberries (0.3% and 0.7%, respectively).

2. Sweet Potato

Sweet Potato

Usually cylindrical with tapered ends, sweet potatoes can vary in size, weighing up to one pound and measuring up to 12 inches in length. White or golden-brown skin can range from soft to firm and dense flesh can range from yellow to orange to mauve to deep magenta-purple, and the relatively smooth flesh can range from the firm or soft.

It is generally true that white-fleshed varieties have a firmer texture while orange-fleshed varieties are softer and moister. There are a variety of sweet potatoes, some of which are sweeter than others. Sweet potatoes have a sugary-sugary tasting flesh with earthy undertones and nuttiness to them.


There are savory as well as sweet applications for sweet potatoes. In addition to being roasted, baked, steamed, boiled, simmered, or fried, they can be served as a cooked vegetable in whole or mashed form.

You can thinly slice sweet potatoes to make casseroles, ratatouille, or lasagnas, or you can cube them and simmer them in soups, chilis, or coconut curries, or cut them into wedges and fry them with your favorite dipping sauce.

Often used as a filling for pies, these soft and sugary orange varieties go nicely with spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice, as well as maple syrup or brown sugar. An American Thanksgiving side dish made with sweet potato and marshmallows is often called candy yams, a mashed sweet potato and marshmallow casserole.

Instead of being placed in the refrigerator, sweet potatoes should be stored loose in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

Health Benefits of Sweet Potato

Because of the amount of nutrients they contain, sweet potatoes earn the title of “superfood.” 

Cancer: Cancer risk could be reduced by sweet potato carotenoids. In addition to being high in anthocyanin, purple sweet potatoes may reduce your chances of getting colorectal cancer.

Diabetes: Blood sugar may be controlled by sweet potato compounds. Boiling sweet potatoes will cause your blood sugar levels to stay steady since they have a low glycemic index (GI).

Heart disease: The consumption of sweet potatoes has been shown to lower LDL “bad” cholesterol levels, which may lower your risk of heart problems.

Macular degeneration: Sweet potatoes contain significant amounts of beta-carotene and vitamin A that can lower your risk of developing this very common cause of blindness.

Obesity: Having purple sweet potatoes may help you lose weight by reducing inflammation in your body and preventing fat cells from growing.

3. Smoothie

Healthy Fitness Meals

In a smoothie or smoothy, fruit and vegetables are blended together in a blender to form a drink. Smoothies often contain dairy products, such as milk, yogurt, ice cream, or cottage cheese. The drink may contain additional ingredients, such as non-dairy milk, crushed ice, sweeteners (honey or sugar), vinegar, whey powder, chocolate, or nutritional supplements.

4. Salad


Generally, there is some type of dressing mixed with the greens in a salad dish comprising various ingredients. There are many ways to prepare salads, including serving as a side dish or a separate course, or for the main course of a meal.

Most often, leafy greens are paired with either vegetables or fruit, but they can also be mixed. Salads may also include meat, pasta, cheese, nuts, or any combination of those items. Fruit and vegetable salads are generally served cold, though some salads may be served warm with warm dressings.

Types of Salad

Salads can be composed (the ingredients are arranged on a platter or bowl, often with salad dressing) or tossed (the ingredients are tossed in a bowl with no dressing). An antipasto plate, the first dish of a formal Italian meal, is similar to a composed salad and has vegetables, cheese, and meat.

1. Green salad

As the name suggests, green salad is composed primarily of leafy vegetables such as lettuce and spinach varieties as well as rocket (arugula). The salad may be called a vegetable salad if it contains a large quantity of non-greens.

Salads can contain a wide variety of raw vegetables, including cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, onions, carrots, celery, radishes, mushrooms, avocado, olives, artichoke hearts, the heart of palms, watercress, parsley, garden beets, and green beans. It is less common to include nuts, seeds, berries, and flowers.

2. Bound salads

Mayonnaise and thick sauces are often used to assemble bound salads. If packed in a container, a portion of a salad on a plate will hold its shape. In addition to tuna salad, chicken salad, egg salad, coleslaw, and potato salad, bound salads include chicken salad, egg salad, and coleslaw. These salads can be used in sandwiches as well. 

Macaroni salad, for example, is a bound salad. Picnics and barbecues usually feature them.

3. Dinner salads

Small pieces of poultry, seafood, or steak may be included in main course salads (often called dinner salads or entrée salads in the United States). These dinner salads include Caesar salads, Chef salads, Cobb salads, Chinese chicken salads, Michigan salads, and Pittsburgh salads.

Roquefort blue cheese (traditional for Cobb salads) is used in dinner salads, as well as Swiss, Cheddar, Jack, and Provolone (for Chef and Cobb salads).

4. Fruit salads

Fresh or canned fruit is used in fruit salads (in the culinary sense). Fruit cocktails are an example.

5. Dessert salads

Dessert salads are usually sweet and do not include leafy greens. Typical variations include jello salads, pistachio salads, and ambrosia, all made with gelatin or whipped cream. The midwestern American ambrosia-like glorified rice and cookie salad, made from crumbled cookies, is another form of dessert salad.

5. Strawberry Milkshake

Strawberry Milkshake

We had strawberry milkshakes on Friday, or ice cream if you prefer. Unfortunately, I did not add enough milk to it. The consistency makes it much easier for me to offer it to my 18-month-old without her finding it on the floor 2 minutes later. Neither my older nor younger daughters complained either. Her favorite meal is homemade ice cream. Besides, I think this is better than store-bought ice cream.

Fresh Strawberry Milkshakes Recipe


  • 1/2 pound fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced, plus whole strawberries, for garnish
  • 2 heaping tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-pint vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup milk


Strawberries, sugar and vanilla extract should be mixed well in a mixing bowl. For at least 20 minutes and up to one hour, leave the mixture to macerate. Strawberries, ice cream, and milk should be combined in a large mixer.

Smoothly blend all ingredients. Add a sprinkling of whole strawberries to the rim of each glass and pour into ice cream parlor glasses. Enjoy right away.

6. Skittles

Snacks That Start With S

They come in a bag of different colors and are small round chewy candies. “Taste the rainbow” has been Skittles’ tagline for years, referring to the colorful aspect of the candy. As a fruit-flavored candy, Skittles have their own niche despite looking similar to their chocolate relatives, M&M’s.

Skittles offer a much more chewy and flavorful experience than other small colorful candies, such as Reese’s Pieces. Despite looking very similar to its “competition”, Skittles have a distinct taste that sets them apart.

11. Scrambled eggs

Scrambled eggs

It is cooked in an open pan by mixing egg whites and yolks with seasonings and milk. To help prevent eggs from sticking to the pan when cooking scrambled eggs, it is a good idea to heat the pan before cooking the eggs.

A pan is sufficiently heated when it is warm to the touch at its top part. Pour the egg mixture into the pan after spraying or heating cooking oil so that it lightly coats the bottom of the pan. Keep the heat low when using butter to prevent it from browning or burning in the pan.

In order to make good Scrambled Eggs, the egg mixture must remain unstirred for a minute or more after it is first blended together so that moisture and air are trapped within.

In addition to puffing up the Scrambled Eggs, the trapped air will help expand the egg mixture when it heats. Push the cooked eggs to the side of the pan once they are sufficiently cooked, and allow the uncooked eggs to replace them.

Cheese, meat, herbs, onions, peppers, and mushrooms can be added to the egg mixture to enhance its flavor. The usual breakfast or brunch dish, scrambled eggs can be served as a main dish with additional ingredients for any meal.

If you wish, you can make the eggs fluffier by adding one tablespoon of water to each one in the recipe. Add a tablespoon of milk for every egg you are using if you want creamier eggs. In order to ensure a firmer egg mixture, heat the frying pan on a medium heat setting before adding the egg mixture.

Afterward, mix the ingredients and let them sit undisturbed for 15 to 20 seconds, and then turn the eggs repeatedly with a spatula for 40 to 60 seconds.

Shortcakes have been leavened with baking powder or baking soda, and are a sweet cake or biscuit in the American sense. It is a biscuit similar to shortbread that is known as a shortcake in the UK. Unlike shortbread, it usually has a crunchy texture and is rather dry.

The ingredients for shortcakes are typically flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, butter, milk or cream, and sometimes eggs. The dry ingredients are blended until they resemble cornmeal, followed by the butter cut in.

After the liquid ingredients are added, the dough is shortened by mixing just enough to moisten it. Depending on how wet the dough is and how much dough the baker prefers, spoonfuls of dough are then dropped onto a baking sheet. However, it can also be rolled and cut as baking powder biscuits or poured into cake pans. After baking, you should let it cool before consuming it.

Step 1: A medium-high heat should be applied to a skillet or frying pan.

Step 2: In a dry pan, pour one or two frozen steak-umms. Extra fat is not necessary due to the fat content of the meat.

Step 3: Steakumm should be grilled for one minute, then flipped over with a pair of tongs and grilled for fifteen or twenty seconds more.

Step 4: Put the steak-um on your sandwich after removing it from the pan.

17. Spaghetti

The Spruce Eats

Known as ‘spaggi’ in Italian, spaghetti is a cylindrical, long, thin, cylinder-shaped pasta. Traditional Italian cuisine is incomplete without it. Spaghetti is also made with milled wheat and water and can sometimes be supplemented with vitamins and minerals.

Durum wheat semolina is typically used to make Italian spaghetti. White pasta is usually made with refined flour, but whole wheat flour can also be used. Compared to capellini, spaghetti is a much thicker form of pasta.

In its original form, spaghetti was extremely long; however, in the latter half of the 20th century, shorter noodles gained in popularity, and most commonly, it can be purchased in 25–30 cm (10–12 in) lengths. It is often served with tomato sauce, meat, or vegetables, and it is used in a variety of pasta dishes.


As well as carbohydrates, pasta provides fiber, potassium, iron, and some protein. Degermed wheat flour provides less dietary fiber than whole wheat grain pasta.

18. Smoked Sausage

Snacks That Start With S

In general, smoked sausages are coarsely ground meats that are stuffed into either hog casings (30–40 mm/1.19–1.5 in. diameter) or cellulose casings and smoked. The links are approximately 12.5 cm (5 in.) long if they are stuffed into cellulose casings, which are then removed to make a skinless sausage.

The smoked sausage is most often not linked when stuffed into natural hog casings, but it is looped into approximately 500g loops instead. Typically, black pepper, dextrose, and smoke provide the flavors of smoked sausages. Occasionally, coriander and red pepper are added.
