Homemade Coconut Popsicles

  In high school, my friends and I used to buy coconut popsicles every day in the school cafeteria. They tasted just like these popsicles (minus the whole dairy-free, sugar-free element.) I recently remembered these pops and realized how easy they’d be to make, considering I make most of my homemade ice cream with coconut milk. Add in a few dates, shredded coconut, and a few tablespoons of sweetener and voila! Homemade coconut popsicles! I have a HUGE sweet tooth, so I’m a big fan of making healthy snacks at home, but this also requires investing in a few handy products. So for this, you’ll need a popsicle mold, which you can purchase online for around $10. Just make sure that when the popsicles are frozen, you run the mold under hot water so they pop out easily. You’re also welcome to substitute agave nectar or raw honey for the maple syrup if you prefer. ( Or omit the sweetener altogether and add more dates!)

Healthy Homemade Granola

  I just made my first batch of homemade granola yesterday, and it is SO easy to make! Granola is something that I always want to buy in stores, but it’s hard to find a brand that doesn’t have a ton of added sugar. This healthy homemade granola only takes about 20 minutes to make, and requires about 7 ingredients – mainly oats, almonds, pure maple syrup, flour, coconut oil, and whatever extras you want to add on (sunflower or pumpkin seeds, shredded coconut, raisins, etc.) Just be sure not to overcook it, or it will lose flavor. Homemade Healthy Granola Ingredients 1 cup old fashioned oats ½ cup almonds, chopped 2 tbsp sunflower or pumpkin seeds 1 tbsp shredded coconut 2 tbsp whole wheat flour ¼ cup coconut oil, melted 2 tbsp pure maple syrup ½ tsp vanilla extract Optional: 1 tbsp raisins Dash of sea salt and cinnamon, to taste Instructions Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix oats, almonds, shredded coconut, seeds, flour, salt, and cinnamon together. Set aside. Mix the coconut oil, maple
