How about an amazingly simple candy recipe that’s actually good for you & your kids – and it involves no cooking – just freezing! I tried this candy on an 11 year-old with junk food junkie taste buds – and he loved it! It was interesting to watch his face as he chewed, detecting the amazing flavors as they burst on his tongue one-by-one. This is a no-guilt candy – it actually feeds your body nutrients it can use to regenerate itself! It’s a win – win!
Tip: This is frozen candy, it gets mushy rather quickly at room temperature. Eat immediately once removed from freezer for crunchy candy bar texture.
Frozen Quick & Healthy Candy
- 1/4 cup Raw Cacao Nibs – super antioxidant – gives the candy a crunch!
- 1/4 cup Goji Berries – super antioxidant
- 1/2 cup Shredded Unsweetened Coconut – good fat
- 3 Tbls Raw Almond Butter – good fat & protein
- 3 Tbls Coconut Palm Sugar Granules – natural low-glycemic sweetener
Mix all ingredients well, put in a small ziplock freezer bag, smoosh it flat and freeze it for a minimum of 30 minutes. When well frozen, break off a small piece to munch on – mmmm, so good and so good for you!!!
Individual candy portions can be made as well. Get candy cups (like those in boxed chocolates) at the craft supply shop and drop small portions of candy in the paper cups. Then place in a container and freeze. (Recycled plastic food containers such as sushi to-go containers can be used to hold and freeze the candies – and makes a great looking gift.)
Imagine that – candy that’s good for you – what a concept! Well, you don’t have to imagine it anymore – now you’ve got the recipe!
Helpful tip: This is a super munchy candy – so take small bites. All ingredients are available online or in your local health food store.
