Sweet & Healthy Easter Caramel Popcorn

with Organic Popcorn

Easter is one of the oldest holidays in the world and is celebrated in a variety of unique ways, with traditions differing according to their ethnic, religious or cultural backgrounds. You will find people gathering at church, or kids wandering around their yards hunting for Easter eggs. Regardless of how you are celebrating, this festive long weekend might also be the perfect time to invite family and friends over for a backyard barbecue or potluck gathering!

Need ideas on what to make? There is a list of traditional Easter treats you can choose from – some of the classics include carrot cakes, hot cross buns, chocolate muffins, glazed ham and deviled eggs. However, if you are a busy parent with limited time to cook, or just a freshman in kitchen who is looking for something easy to make, our Easter-themed caramel popcorn recipe might come in handy.

Fun fact! Did you know that air-popped popcorn (not the ones in movie theatres with butter dripping all over) is one of the healthiest snacks and contains various health benefits? It can improve your digestive health, lower cholesterol, aid in weight loss and control blood sugar! It is important to note that popcorn is a natural whole grain, meaning it is high in fibre. It also contains minerals like manganese and magnesium, vitamin E and B complex vitamins.

This Easter Caramel Popcorn is a sweet and healthy option everyone will love. We even used beet powder to give the popcorn a nice pink shade that matches the Spring season!
