Navitas Trail Mixes are the ideal energy food to support modern-day nomadic adventures. ‘Trail mix’ was invented by ancient nomads - the original experts at creating portable high-energy snacks that could withstand weather and didn’t need cooking. Traditionally, their snacks included a collection of many wild and native superfoods. We honor this tradition by blending the most powerful and delicious raw, organic functional foods from around the world. We offer two trail mixes: Goji-Mulberry-Goldenberry and the same 3 berry blend (Goji-Mulberry-Goldenberry) mixed with our crunchy raw cacao nibs and cashews.
