This light. tasty vanilla icing is in between a glaze and frosting. It can be put in a baggie and piped onto your baked goodies. Clip a tiny corner of the baggie and squeeze out the icing. You can go slowly and controlled or go fast and let it get all squiggly like I did on the scone above.

I put in just a bit of butter flavoring in this recipe, if you don’t have any it will still work, but it does add a light, buttery flavor that I think is worth adding in.

Try this icing with my Grain-Free Snickerdoodle Scones.

These grain-free snickerdoodle scones are perfect for breakfast or for an afternoon snack with a cup tea or coffee. While your scones are baking be prepared for some wonderful cinnamon aroma wafting through your kitchen. Both of my girls commented on how much they smelled like the cinnamon toast waffles that we used to buy before we went gluten-free and how wonderful the kitchen smelled.

How to make scones - gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, THM-S, low-carb

  2. Using a knife or pastry scraper cut dough into eight slices.
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes
  4. Cut again along the lines.
  5. Carefully slide each scone out about an inch.
  6. Bake for 5-7 more minutes.

Try my Dairy-Free Vanilla Icing to top these scones.  If you can handle dairy, there is a “glosting” (a cross between glaze and frosting) recipe in Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook on page 285.

Strawberries and lime complement each other in a delightful way in this slushy drink. You may have had a version of this at a drive-thru made with regular sugar-filled soda, but this healthy version is full of fruit and sweetened with only stevia.

If you want to make this a full snack add in the collagen for a nice serving of protein. Trim Healthy Mama Integral Collagen or Custom Collagen are my favorites.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins with summer squash. Gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, low-carb, THM-S.

If you need a chocolate and peanut butter fix here you go! These muffins have veggies in them, but you won’t be able to taste it.

Yellow or zucchini squash make these muffins extra moist. I like to shred summer squash and freeze it in two cup portions to be able to use it throughout the year. If using frozen squash, just be sure to drain off any excess water before putting it in a recipe.

Almond butter can be used in place of peanut butter, if you prefer.

I use a Vita-Mix blender, which is a power-horse of a blender. If you don’t have a heavy-duty blender you may want to use a food processor instead.

Yellow Squash Snack Cake - Tastes like a yummy pound cake. Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, Low-carb, THM-S

 

Yellow Squash Snack Cake - Tastes like a yummy pound cake. Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, Low-carb, THM-S

This simple to make snack cake makes me think a lot of a pound cake, but without all the sugar. The yellow squash makes this cake nice and moist and the combination of almond flour and the THM Baking Blend gives it the perfect texture. This cake is delicious even without icing. My favorite way to serve it is plain or with a berry sauce.

While summer squash is in season, I like to freeze it in 2 cup portions so that I can easily make baked goods throughout the year using squash. Most of the time we think of using zucchini in cakes, but yellow squash works just as well, especially if you’re wanting a lighter color of cake.

It’s simple to freeze summer squash.

  • Peel or leave peeling, the choice is yours. There are more nutrients in the peeling, but if you don’t want the extra yellow or green color you can peel them first.
  • Cut out seedy centers.
  • Shred. This is easiest done in a food processor. This food processor is the one that I use.
  • Freeze in 2-cup portions in freezer bags.
  • To use, thaw on counter or place in a bowl of water for a few hours thaw. Drain excess water off before using in recipe.

White Root Beer Frosty - Dairy-free, Sugar-free

A new twist on an old favorite – Root Beer Float becomes a White Root Beer Frosty featuring Zevia Ginger Root Beer!

Recently Zevia started making their drinks clear – no caramel coloring!

Zevia sodas don’t contain sugar, use non-GMO ingredients, and contains no phosphoric acid! Yay! You can read more about Zevia’s ingredients on their website. I’ve been able to find Zevia’s at my local grocery store and they are often on sale! Zevia’s Zero Calorie Sodas are making my sugar-free life a little easier.

  • This recipe calls for collagen, it’s optional to add in, but it does add protein and makes this treat much more nutritious. My favorite brands are THM’s Integral Collagen or Custom Collagen through Amazon, since this isn’t an item that is normally at your local grocery store you would need to order it, it’s just a matter of where you like to order from.
  • The glucomannan gives this treat a creamier texture. And again I use both THM’s brand or Now brand, it just depends on where I’m ordering and sale prices.

Dairy-Free Peach Frozen Yogurt

 

Dairy-free Peach Frozen Yogurt - Sugar-Free, Low-Carb

 

Dairy-free Peach Frozen Yogurt - Sugar-Free, Low-Carb

 

Dairy-free Peach Frozen Yogurt - Sugar-Free, Low-Carb

This dairy-free peach frozen yogurt brings back memories of my childhood. I remember one summer when I was little and we had a large family reunion the adults were making peach ice cream for everyone. They were using one of those crank ice cream makers and family members were taking turns cranking the machine, while everyone was anxiously awaiting. Well, I know I was anxiously awaiting. It was such a novelty to me to have homemade ice cream and for it to have peaches in it. I’m thinking it was my grandfather’s favorite flavor.

After what seemed like forever to my young mind, they started passing those bowls of creamy goodness out to everyone. I remember taking those first few bites of peachy goodness and thinking the world was a wonderful place. It’s a snapshot in my mind of a perfect summer day with family and the most delicious peach ice cream man could make.

Fast forward to today and we have the blessing of being able to make homemade ice cream and frozen yogurt in a simple to use electric ice cream maker. I love to use my ice cream maker, especially now that our family needs to eat dairy-free we can still enjoy delicious and healthy desserts like this one.

This dairy-free peach frozen yogurt is so simple and easy to make, just blend the ingredients and put it all in the ice cream maker and let it do it’s magic. I’ve added in the flavors of vanilla and just a bit of ginger to make the peach flavor really shine.

Trim Healthy Mamas 1/4 of this recipe is an FP. If you have more than 1/4 of this recipe it will push it into an E category.

Peach Frozen Yogurt
 
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 cups frozen peaches, a 10 oz bag is the perfect size.
  • 1 16 oz container Unsweetened Coconut Milk Yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons THM Sweet Blend or *homemade sweetener
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable glycerine, optional
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger, optional
Instructions

  2. Add mixture to ice cream maker, following manufacturer's instructions.

Notes
The ginger is optional, but it really does enhance the peach flavor.
The vegetable glycerine is optional too, but I think you'll find that it does make the texture creamier.
If you freeze any left-overs, remove from the freezer 10-20 minutes before serving to allow it to soften up a bit.
