Easter bank holiday is fast approaching, and the shops are filled with chocolate. No wonder it is so easy to over-indulge this time of year!

We have come up with a list of ‘hacks’ to help you avoid the sugar rush – You’re sweet enough already! 🙂 

1. Try your hand at some refined sugar free baking; The internet is a wonderful source of endless recipes!  We loved Davina’s refined sugar free brownies, these definitely satisfied our sweet tooth.  http://thisisdavina.com/gossip/read/sugar-free-brownies

2. Easter Crafts – This one is particularly great for keeping the children entertained whilst on the Easter half term, and can be enjoyed as a family activity. Home sense, The Range, Home Bargains and Poundland have some fantastic Easter crafts on offer at very reasonable prices. We found so many wonderful ideas on Pinterest, but this one was one of our favourites; DIY Bunny bunting, with pom-pom tails.

3. If you do receive way too many Easter eggs (again particularly aimed at those with children), melt the chocolate down, bake with it, and give them away as cute little Easter gifts. It goes without saying that you will need to test one or two of course! These chocolate Easter nests are so simple to make, and all the family can join in on the fun; https://www.goodtoknow.co.uk/recipes/easter-nests

4. Get active! Organised some Easter themed games for all the family to join in and have some fun! Whether it’s the classic egg and spoon race, or treasure hunt, a little imagination goes a long way!

We hope that this has been useful and has given you some Easter inspiration, and we’d love to hear from you if you tried any of our ideas or took inspiration from them. Perhaps you have an Easter hack of your own? Leave us a comment below as we love to read your comments.

We hope you all have a wonderful Easter break! – The AV Team
