One of my favorite products is birch tree sap. The slightly sweet thin syrup-like liquid contains xylitol, amino acids, proteins, vitamins and minerals which makes it an ideal drink to cleanse and boost your health.
I used to drink 1 or 2 tbs a day because it is said to treat arthitis and joint pain. I recently started to adopt this healthy liquid to my recipes and I really love it. It has such a refreshing subtle flavor and it is so good for you.
I love adding good ingredients to my recipes and birch tree is a delicious way of incorporating such a healthy ingredient. Especially when you have kids, you need to be creative with food to help them to get all the vitamins and minerals they need. My kids are a real challenge when it comes to food let me tell ya! But it is so important to teach them about the importance of healthy food. I’ve learned not to stress too much about it when they refuse to eat the things I serve them. I am confident that when they’re older they will make the right, informed choices because I feel as though I have set a good example and I have taught them about good food from an early age.
An easy yummy recipe to try is my Birch tree sap coco pops.
To make 6 to 8 Birch tree sap coco pops you’ll need:
1 big can of coconut cream (400ml)
Juice of 2 to 3 limes
4 tbs liquid natural sweetener (i used liquid coconut sugar)
4 to 6 tbs birch tree sap
1 tsp natural vanilla extract
Mix all the ingredients in a blender. Fill paper cups, add fresh berries and wooden sticks and put them in the freezer for at least 4 hours.
These pops are perfect for warm sunny days when you are craving something fresh and sweet.
I recently made a vegan raw cake with birch tree, lime and raspberry and the recipe will come to my recipe app ‘Effortlessly Healthy’ soon, stay tuned!
