This Valentine’s Day, instead of opting for unoriginal and over-priced store-bought treats, what about making delicious healthy treats your sweetheart will love, especially if they are made with affection and dedication.
Heart Fruit Pops
In order to make these super cute and healthy all-natural fruit pops you will need to get a mini cookie cutter set.
As far as fruits, you can use melon, kiwi, bananas, or watermelon. It’s important that the fruits have a texture, thickness, and consistency that will enable them to hold up (watermelon and bananas can be tricky).
You can also add a drizzle of dark chocolate or dip them in greek yogurt. Click here to learn how to make them.
Sweet Potatoes Crackers

Here’s the recipe.
One hint: Eat them right after you make them otherwise they will get bready and soft (still good, though).
