Paleo Toffee Apples

Our last recipe for today is one the kids are sure to love, toffee apples! This is a great one to get the kids involved in making together and we’re sure the whole family will enjoy.  

Whereas traditional toffee is made with a lot of sugar and often with other unnatural flavoring agents, this recipe idea is a very simple alternative that tastes the same and can serve as a post dinner festive snack! When you’re shopping for the ingredients make sure to buy good quality honey and coconut cream with only ‘coconut kernel’ and ‘water’ on the label. Most coconut creams will contain thickeners and stabilizers such as guar gum, which you want to avoid. 

We hope you and your family have a wonderful time over the festive period! We’d love to hear from you if you’ve enjoyed our special edition holiday recipes.  Drop us a line anytime on [email protected] even if it’s just to say ‘hi’!

Paleo Toffee Apples 


1 – 1.5 hours


  • 3 apples from the Fruitful Day Box
  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • 1 cup of honey
  • 1 pinch of salt


  1. Place coconut cream, honey and salt into a heavy bottom saucepan on medium heat.
  2. Bring to a simmer. Once bubbles start forming you can stir to keep from bubbling over. This should take 20 – 30 minutes.
  3. Continue to simmer until the temperature reaches 120 degrees C on a candy thermometer.
  4. While the honey and coconut cream are simmering, poke your sticks into the apples – you can use popsicle sticks or actual sticks from a tree.
  5. Line a baking tray with baking paper for the apples to rest on.
  6. Once 120 degrees C is reached, remove from the heat and allow to cool to around 80 degrees C, which will be a good temperature for dipping.
  7. Dip the apples one by one into the toffee and then place them on their sides on the baking tray. You can also add nuts or desiccated coconut to the toffee at this point.
  8. Allow to set in the fridge for several hours. Some of the toffee will drip off which you can either discard or mould with your hands back onto the apple.

Immunity March: Strawberry, Basil, Lime & Coconut Water Popsicles

This month has flown by and we hope everyone is enjoying some well-deserved rest over spring break. We have the kids home for a few weeks so we thought it was fitting to include a popsicle recipe that is perfect to make and enjoy with the family! This is our last recipe for month focusing on immunity.

Not only are these strawberry, basil, lime and coconut water popsicles beautiful, the coconut water contains lauric acid, which is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral. This makes it a great immune system booster that can help us fight infection!

We have some delicious recipes coming next month including a special Easter treat. Stay tuned for more details coming soon!
