Your Secret Pal: 6 DIY Homemade Food Gifts
Everyone enjoys delicious and healthy homemade food gifts.
Why not give the gift of health this year? Homemade snacks are easy to make, healthy and can be tailored to different taste preferences.
Granola bars are easy to make and store well, making them an excellent choice for homemade gift-giving. Plus, granola can be made with any combination of nuts and dried fruits. You can get creative with the flavors and add some chocolate chips or shredded coconut for good measure.
If you love cooking or baking, these spice blends are perfect! Not only do they make great gifts, but they're also fun to experiment with in the kitchen (especially if you're new to cooking). You can choose from various flavours like garlic salt or harissa spice blend — whatever suits your taste preferences. It's fun to experiment with different combinations!
Pickled vegetables are an underutilized pantry staple everyone should know how to make at home (they last forever!). Not only do pickles add flavour and colour to any dish, but they also have tons of health benefits too. Plus — they're super easy to prepare! All you need are essential ingredients like vinegar, salt, water and vegetables.
Jazz it up with your favourite flavours like cinnamon, vanilla extract or cocoa powder. Popcorn is one of the easiest snacks to make at home, and it's a great way to use the leftover kernels from the bottom of your bag. Depending on your recipient's liking, you can make it sweet or savoury.
Homemade trail mix
This snack makes for an excellent on-the-go or afternoon snack when you're hungry between meals. You can make your trail mix by combining almonds, cashews and dried fruit in an airtight container. For an added touch, try adding some chocolate chips into the mix!
Chia seeds are one of our favourite superfoods because they're so good for you! Take some milk, chia seeds, fruits, nuts and vanilla extract. Add into a mason jar and let it freeze overnight. It is one of the most popular healthy desserts—delicious, filling and easy to make!
