Pineapple and coconut go together like peanut butter and jelly. It’s one of those combinations that sounds too simple to be phenomenal, but when those flavors hit your tastebuds… it just feels right. Virgin pina coladas were one of my favorite things to order with dinner when I was a kid (as opposed to a soda, though I’m not sure the pina colada was much healthier), and now, pineapple is one of my favorite things to pair with the coconut you’ll see in nearly every AIP-friendly treat. With just five ingredients, these Pina Colada Candies are ridiculously simple. At the same time, they’e so unique they’ll impress anyone you happen to serve them to. They have a gummy texture that varies from soft to chewy depending on how long you cook them and how much honey you add–but pay attention while they’re on the stove, because they can and will burn if you let them get too dry. It’s the kind of recipe that looks intimidating until you get started. Just follow the instructions and you’ll be enjoying your candies in no time!
Are you suffering from adrenal fatigue?
Are You Tired and Wired? is one of my favorite books on adrenal fatigue with chronic illness. It’s a comprehensive yet straightforward examination of the factors at work and home that contribute to chronic adrenal dysfunction and the diet, lifestyle adjustments, and emotional reprogramming that can help fix it. A healthcare provider with a focus on women’s health, Marcelle Pick will help you identify what type of adrenal dysfunction you suffer from and provide an easy-to-follow, science-based program to help you restore balance to your life. I found it extremely helpful with my own chronic fatigue!
