How To Make Banana And Coconut Ghoul Pops


Banana And Coconut Ghoul Pops.

As Autumn’s chill begins to bite, we look forward to traditional celebrations associated with the season, taking advantage of the rich harvest mother nature has to offer.

Halloween, Bonfire Night or simply the drawing in of the evenings cosying up with a warming bowl of soup, are all aspects to look forward to.

But Autumn is also a time to invest in your health, warding off bugs as the winter approaches. 

As well as exercise, our health, of course, depends on what we eat, and little changes can make a big difference. 

Chia Seeds are the highest combined plant source of Omega 3, fibre and protein, as well as being high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, offering essential nutrition often missing in modern diets. 

The nutrients in chia can help to sustain energy, improve digestive and heart health, and encourage healthy hair, skin and nails. 

Chia is also fantastic exercise fuel, helping you stay hydrated, increasing stamina, and aiding in muscle repair. 

What’s more, to reap all these benefits you simply need to add one tablespoon (15g) per day to your diet. 

Chia seeds are incorporated into the recipes below in celebration of Autumn so why not start today and improve your health in preparation for winter, but there’s no harm treating your taste buds at the same time.

  2. They look adorable and I'll pin. I'd use coconut yogurt as I'm a plant-based eater. Give it a BIG Coconut boost. I'm visiting from Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop, where I posted 5 Self-care Skills You Need to Know. Warm regards, Nancy Andres
