Happy Valentine’s Day crunchies!
I attempted and succeeded with my first Valentine’s Day treat for Lochlan’s play group party.

Now….it took my a while to figure out what I was going to bring because this is a very crunchy group of momma’s and babes.
You know…the kind of parents that would freak if you brought the classic candy hearts, sugar cookies or God-forbid a regular fruit snack with artificial colors and no actual fruit!!!!

Oh wait! I’m totally that mom….

Please don’t give him that fake white cheddar, GMO filled, gluten ridden cracker you call a CheezIt! Yeah…I’m a freak, maybe someday I’ll lighten up. Not likely….

Hope you all enjoy your sweets and your Valentine is good to you!
The recipe is adopted from Small Footprint Family
I chose not to add probiotics this first go-round…in case they turned out bad. They turned out pretty awesome!
I used:
1 can of Full Fat coconut milk
1 cup of Organic Maple Syrup
1 cup of Great Lakes Beef Gelatin
1 1/2 cups of puréed frozen organic raspberries and strawberries
1 Tbsp of Madagascar Pure Vanilla Extract
Pinch of REALsalt
A splash of organic beet juice for added color

I will definitely be making these a lot in different flavors!
Enjoy!

Dear Lord, I pray that everyone feel your love and the love of a neighbor, friend, family member, spouse and/or child today and everyday. Your love is why we are all here. May we love ourselves and each other more, using your example. Thank you for your unconditional love. Amen

Happy Valentine’s Day from my little Valentine love bug!
