Yummy Earth Organic Lollipops

These days, whenever my son eats a lollipop, even I eat a lollipop. I recently discovered
 Yummy Earth Organic lollipops which are vegan. Yummy Earth  lollipops have been in market for many years, but I recently discovered  it.These lollipops are 100% vegan, and contain no artificial dyes. I have only tasted strawberry smash, and they are just yum, yum and yummy. I got these tasty cruel-free lollipops from Whole Foods Market, and I read in another blog, that they are available even in Marshalls.

Before discovering these yummy lollipops I used to cringe whenever my son ate a lollipop. The phrase "artificial color", and words like red 3 and red 40 on wrappers of lollipops caused me headache. I felt as if I was reading a wonderful poem, when I read the list of ingredients in Yummy Earth packet. Organic cane juice, Organic rice syrup, citric acid(from beet sugar), contain organic Black Carrots, Organic Black Currant, Organic Apple

I read in Yummy Earth's website that these great lollipops are available in 30 countries. I just hope all the kids around the world enjoy lollipos made with real ingredients, just like Yummy Earth's lollipops.

Vegan Apple Halwa

Yesterday, I made Apple halwa, by following Shilpa's  Apple halwa  recipe in Aayi's blog.

I veganised the recipe by using canola oil, instead of ghee. I also used turbinado sugar, from >sugar in the raw
. Apple halwa was almost brown in color, and it was so tasty. I could not cut into pieces, so I relished this wonderful sweet in a spoon. I also added 4 Tbsp of crushed almonds, so the halwa was very nutty and tasty.
If you have sweet tooth, like me, you will surely love this Indian sweet.
