Valentine’s Day is really just another day to show our loved ones how special they are to us.

Don’t forget to show yourself some love too Mamas with these 11 Tips For Mama Self Care this Valentine’s Day {And Every Day of the Year}! When we love others, we fill a place in our hearts that is so important and ever growing with us – so why not fill a space in our tummies while we are at it?! Here are some fun recipes to treat yourself and loved ones with!

12 Valentine’s Day Treats


#1 Homemade Chocolate Bars

These are simple and fast to make – only 3 basic ingredients and customize however you like after that!

#2 Strawberry Coconut Butter Hearts

“Because they are naturally sweetened with strawberries, raw honey, and beet juice, they are safe for those on special diets such as the GAPS and Paleo diets. Grain-free, sugar-free, dairy-free goodness!”

#3 Orange Cream Smoothie

This one has two different recipe versions to try (one dairy-free and an updated one with yummy cream), and it also comes with a how-to video! If you want dairy-free for the newer recipe, just use coconut cream in place of heavy cream.

#4 White Bean Vanilla Cake

It’s a delicious, rich, amazing vanilla cake that is entirely grain- and refined-sugar free and GAPS-friendly! 

#5 Custard Style Vanilla Ice Cream

From Kate: “I can’t call it healthy, because, well, it’s dessert. But it’s a lot better than the store-bought stuff since it’s made from real, whole ingredients!”

#6 Butterscotch Sauce

This is a great way to top a yummy treat!  It lasts several weeks in the fridge so you can use just a small amount at once…if you don’t eat it right away because it’s too awesome. 

#7 Chocolate Cake

This one is rich but not overpowering, sweet but not too sweet, and moist and yummy all around! Works great for making into a cake roll also!

#8 Tiramisu

This puts a great twist on the traditional tiramisu, as well as being a bit easier to make! 

#9 Chocolate Fudge Sauce

This has a wonderful texture and rich chocolate flavor!

#10 Simple Strawberry Cheesecake

Who doesn’t love a good ole’ Strawberry Cheesecake?

#11Cream Cheese Frosting

This frosting is so tasty, you may need a second batch for the cake! 

#12 Blueberry Muffins

These are a great breakfast or healthy little snack made with love!

Rustina started studying herbs and natural living after allopathic medicine was unable to provide answers or support when she needed it. She is continually working on learning more and improving her and her family’s health, diving in and researching any topic. A love of learning led her to homeschool and begin working from home. She now spends each day with her husband and four sons as they travel on their home education journey together. She is thankful for the opportunity to write about these interests and passions for Earthley Wellness and Modern Alternative Mama.
