Method:

  1. Homemade Ice Blocks/Popsicles. Making them at home means, you know exactly what is going into them. I recommend combining fresh fruit with; lemon/lime infused water, natural yoghurt, or fruit juice (with no added sugar).
    Tip: If you don't have ice block moulds, you can use plastic cups and paddle pop sticks!

  2. Mini Pancakes. Combine 2 lightly whisked eggs, 1 1/2 cups of gluten free wholemeal flour, 2 mashed bananas and a handful of blueberries. Fry 2 Tbsp of batter over a low/medium heat and will have a delicious snack!

  3. Dark Chocolate Covered Strawberries. Dip a thin coat of dark chocolate onto your freshly washed strawberries and put them in the refrigerator until the chocolate sets. Fact: Dark Chocolate is packed with antioxidants and strawberries are a superfood, so it's a powerful combination (to be enjoyed in moderation)!

  4. Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn. Heat your popcorn kernels at medium temperature in a cooking pot (grazed with canola oil) with a lid! Once the popcorn is popped, transfer it to a bowl and lightly dust with a blend of ground cinnamon and coconut sugar (a natural sweetener). 

  5. Rasberry Chia Pudding. In the blender, puree 1 cup of fresh raspberries and 2 cups of coconut milk. Pour into a container and mix in 6 Tbsp of chia seeds and then refrigerate (ensure the container is sealed well). Tip: When serving, put in a glass cup and use fresh berries for decoration.
