My baby girl has had a sleepy day and I am sitting here missing her!
I am missing her infectious smile, her heart melting laugh. I am missing the way her warm little head nuzzles into my neck and the way her perfect fingers wrap themselves around mine.
I am missing the way she makes everything ok. The light she brings when my mind is dark. The joy she brings when I have lost my own.
This little girl and I have had only a short amount of time together, just over 12 months if you count the days she spent growing inside me, and already she has given me so much. Already she has taught me so much. Already she has become a part of me, as integral to my being as the air that I breathe.
Thank you little girl, for all that you are, for all that you will be and for all that we will become.
These simple drops are what I grab when I’m hungry but the baby wants to feed, the kids need me or dinner is only 20 minutes away. Without the optional addition of a sweetener they may not appeal to everyone but I always have a stash in my freezer and I thought a few of you may come to love them as much as I do.
- 2 cups desiccated coconut
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- Place the coconut into your food processor and blend at high speed to make a butter.
- Add the oil and blend to combine.
- Spoon or pour the mixture into mini silicon moulds and place in the fridge or freezer to set and store.
note – some processors will find it easier to make the coconut butter if you double the recipe. It can also help to add some of the oil if your butter isn’t working. You can also use approximately 3/4 cup of store bought coconut butter.
Feel free to add 1 tablespoon of sweetener such as honey or rice malt syrup.
