These little Easter Birds Nests are a lot of fun to make for both adults and children to enjoy. They are naturally gluten and dairy free and free from added refined sugars which is so important particularly as we are bombarded by highly refined sugary Easter Eggs at this time of the year.
Make a few and wrap them as gifts for friends. We made mini dairy free eggs to go inside our nests.
Ingredients for Easter Birds Nests
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup buckwheat (toasted – see note below)
5 Tbsp currants
½ cup sunflower seeds
4 Tbsp sesame seeds
2 Tbsp cacao powder
1 Tbsp chia seeds
¼ cup raw honey
¼ cup + 3 Tbsp melted coconut oil
I have just finished writing the blog post about ginger and wanted to share this lovely ginger tea recipe with you.
80 gm ginger sliced
4 cups of water
2 Tbsp raw unpasteurised honey (more if you prefer it sweeter)
1/2 tsp dried turmeric or 3 slices fresh turmeric (optional)
Place ginger and water in a saucepan and bring to boil. Allow to gently simmer for about 6 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the honey. Serve hot, or allow to cool and store in fridge as an iced ginger tea.
The reason for adding in the honey after it has been taken off the heat is to retain the natural anti-bacterial properties of the honey.
This drink is lovely and soothing for an upset stomach, to improve digestion or relieve cold/cough symptoms.
