Since I started with my paleo diet, I have been looking for some easy snack recipes so that I could enjoy some crunchy snacks without feeling very guilty. So nowadays my pass time is to enjoy YouTube videos on healthy baking and cooking. I skip all those recipes like cake and bread. Even though made with the healthy ingredients, a cake is still a cake, and I don’t want to indulge myself in it until I achieve my goal weight. But when I came across seed crackers, I was so delighted. They are so easy to make and there are no rules and regulations. You can add any seed you want. You can opt only flax seeds for these crackers and still they would be great.

Milk or yogurt can be used as the base of any smoothie. I have already tried with milk but have never done with yogurt. So for today’s post I tried adding yogurt in my smoothie. This is also part of my diet and I loved having this. But let me share with you the experience I had with today’s smoothie. As I can’t add sugar, I thought the apple’s sweetness would be enough for the smoothie. But when I made it, I felt it very bland. I have never felt this way with milk based smoothies. My daughter tried a sip and gave me back the glass.
When I was thinking of another popsicle recipe, I remembered the pack of chia seeds which Priya gave during a meet. So I combined the milk pospsicle recipe with some chia seeds and thus a delicious popsicle resulted. But before going into the recipe, I would like to share with you the day’s incident when I made these popsicles. I had both chia seeds and black poppy seeds in my fridge. I even had written down on the pack as chia seeds as I know I would become confused. That day, when I prepared the milk mix and I went to bring the chia seeds. I completely forgot about the pack written as chia seeds and brought with me a pack of black seeds. My mind was else where and was completely blocked, I think. I added a table spoon of the seeds to the milk and let it sit for 10 minutes. When I returned back, the seeds were the same size and I was confused. Only then my mental block cleared and I saw my mistake. I have added poppy seeds instead of chia seeds. I then filtered the milk and added chia again and let it set in the kulfi moulds. So learn from my mistake. Do not add anything before you are 100% sure about the ingredient.
