We are celebrating 1 year of The 4 Blades Mag! What an exciting 12 months it has been. We celebrated by creating a party issue full of your favourite party recipes!

A favourite childhood party treat was coloured popcorn. Unfortunately they are often loaded with A LOT of refined sugar (45g per 100g of coloured popcorn. Now I love sugar. I’m not going to lie but that’s a lot!) and artificial colours etc which isn’t always fab for a kiddies party.

Here is the  ingredient list in common brands:

  • Sugar, Popcorn 43%, Glucose Syrup, Vegetable Oil, Artificial Flavours, Colours (102, 110, 122, 133).

My ingredient list?

  • Popcorn, coconut oil, honey (or maple syrup) and natural colouring.

This is my version of a healthier coloured popcorn option. I highly recommend Hoppers Natural Colours for this recipe but any colouring of your choice will be fine.
