How to Make Your Own Starbucks Bistro Boxes

3 Ways to Make Your Own Protein Bistro Boxes like the Ones at Starbucks

Are you obsessed with Starbucks but not their prices? Join the club. Since I started working from home I’ve acquired a lot more free time to discover new and innovative ideas. That’s why when I found this idea, I just had to share it with you. Today, I’m sharing the recipes for three of my new favorite protein snack boxes—inspired by Starbucks.

These protein boxes are my new favorite thing to meal prep as a snack throughout the week. And not to mention the money that I save by making them at home. Sorry Starbucks.

Building Your Own Bistro Snack Boxes

If you’re anything like me then you may find yourself trying to do things on a budget. It’s not that I’m cheap, I just like to keep my hard-earned money. And since most of my money gets spent on food, ideally I’d like to spend as little as possible. Sound familiar? I know I’m not alone on this one.

I recently found an article that talked about copycat Starbucks Bistro Boxes when I thought to myself, why not just put some of my favorite snacks together to create my own? It would be the perfect snack to take with me wherever I go. And not to mention the simplicity they bring me.

Building your own snack boxes is super easy. And once you’ve got your boxes for the week, you can easily grab them and go. If you’re feeling extra fancy, you can top it off with a VIA refresher using these disposable Starbucks cups.

Aside from the three boxes, I’m going to share with you below how you can also make PB&J boxes, snack wrap boxes, and even deli-inspired protein boxes. I personally haven’t made those ones yet, but once you know how to put the boxes together, making them will come naturally. Because you can always just add a wrap or a sandwich to complete your meal.

Bistro Box Number One

First on the list is my hummus and pita bread snack box. I really like this box as a quick fix. It fills me up and holds me over until the next course. 

What you’ll need for this box:

  • Hummus
  • Pita bread
  • Cucumber slices
  • Apple slices
  • Peanut butter

Starbucks Cold Beverage Cups

Bistro Box Number Two 

The second copycat bistro box is very similar to one of Starbucks' actual protein boxes, except there’s a small twist. I’m a huge fan of goat cheese (really flaming goat cheese), so I thought it would be a nice addition to add a slice. 

What you’ll need for this box:

  • A hard-boiled egg
  • Grapes
  • Goat cheese slice
  • Carrots & ranch
  • Graham crackers

Starbucks VIA Refreshers

Bistro Box Number Three

This snack box is probably my favorite of the three. I love honey roasted peanuts and pepper jack cheese cubes in the morning. Especially if I’m in a hurry and can’t have a proper breakfast.

What you’ll need for this box:

  • Honey roasted peanuts
  • Pepper jack cheese cubes
  • Raisins
  • Apple slices
  • Celery
  • Peanut butter
