Healthy popcorn for your Christmas movie marathons

Get cosy in front of a Christmas classic and tuck into a delicious, guilt-free snack: POPCORN!

The health benefits of this favourite movie night treat may surprise you. Loaded with fibre and heart-healthy polyphenols,1 homemade popcorn can be one of the healthiest snacks around – as long as the toppings are juuuuust right ; )

Here’s how we make it on the farm –

The popcorn

  • 5 tbsp organic popcorn kernels
  • 3 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
  • Optional sea salt to taste

Pour your chosen oil into a large saucepan on medium-high heat. Once heated, test the oil by adding 2-3 kernels. When these kernels pop, add the remaining kernels in an even layer. Cover your pan. The kernels should begin popping. Gently shake the pan to avoid any burning. Once the popping slows to several seconds between pops, remove the pan from the heat.

The toppings

Here’s the fun bit! Add sweet or savoury seasonings for extra yumminess –

Cinnamon and nutmeg

Dried rosemary and garlic powder

Dark chocolate (75% and above) and sea salt

Smoked paprika and chilli flakes

Lemon and lime zest

Nom, nom, nom!
