*Alphabet Tuesdays*

‘C’ stands for ~Coconut Chai Popcorn~ I was standing in line at the video shop the other day and picked up a packet of microwave popcorn. After turning it over and reading the ingredients, I quickly put it back on the shelf.
When I got home I grabbed a medium sized saucepan, turned the hot plate to a low heat, added 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, 1/2 cup of Lotus organic popping corn kernels and put the lid on.

After a couple of minutes there was a party in the saucepan and everyone was invited. In a separate saucepan I melted a couple of teaspoons each of organic butter and raw organic honey, then drizzled it over the popcorn. To top it off I sprinkled it with Hari Har chai spice mix (organic cocoa, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cardamon).

The coconut oil is the best choice because it can be heated to a super high temp without oxidising and turning rancid. Plus the subtle coconutty flavour is divine.

Perfect for lunchboxes, afternoon snacks and rainy day movie marathons. xx
