Yes, popcorn is healthy, unfortunately not the stuff you buy from the store, but you can have fun by buying the un-popped popcorn and making it at home, and if you want to add a little taste to it you can always add some cinnamon, stevia sugar or a small sprinkle of dark chocolate chips. This snack is perfect for a girls movie night, so check out our list of movies you need to see this month!

Mix low fat yoghurt and honey together and pour onto a non-stick tray. Then add any toppings you fancy, fruit, nuts a couple of dark chocolate chunks (rumor has it, a little dark chocolate isn’t that bad for you!). Freeze for 2-4 hours and then chop them into bars and you’re good to go, these bars can stay in the freezer for up to a month!
