With simple ingredients these are a fast treat to make. Buy your coconut oil by clicking here and your mint extract by clicking here.

* This recipe calls for 3-4 spinach leaves which are a GAPS phase 6 food. If you wish to do spinach coloring earlier than phase 6 it is GAPS approved to juice the leaves. Spinach is not neccessary to this treat.

To try Lemon Drops, which are equally as healthy but a different flavor click here for the recipe.

No company pays her for writing these blogs, she considers this a form of missionary work. It is her desire to scream it from the rooftops so that others don’t suffer from the damaging affect of today’s “food”.
