“It really goes to show The Healthy Mummy has all the bases covered, you don’t have to miss out! It was easy, cheap and delicious!” she says.

Just look at the end result it’s colourful, appetising and healthy!

These delicious chocolate covered strawberries are available in the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge recipe hub.

Healthy dips

Dips are very often put into the ‘unhealthy’ basket, however, dips can actually be deemed healthy it just depends on the ingredients you use.

With the right mix of ingredients and dippers, you can enjoy these snacks knowing you are doing your body good and with the range of Healthy Mummy dip recipes, there is something for every taste.

“I thought making the dips from scratch would be time-consuming but both only took 5 minutes!” Sascha explains. Here are the dips she made.

Final elements

To finish off her platter Sascha knew she had to have a couple of extra touches especially a cheese, saying “You can’t have a board without Brie on it, a drizzle of honey is absolutely delicious with this cheese!”

“I also added some assorted pretzels, water crackers, and veg sticks! A perfect combination to spark taste buds and hit the savoury and sweet spots!” she explains.

The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge is designed for busy mums and Sascha offers the advice of “even if something looks timely, give it a go you’ll be surprised how quickly everything comes together.”

“I got the kids involved rolling the Bliss balls, chopping ingredients, stirring, pouring etc. Make a plan and make it fun!” Sascha says.

Thanks Sascha, this all looks amazing will definitely be making some of this up for our next gathering!
