This Frosted Mocha is a delicious and satisfying drink. Perfect for a snack between meals or for a big dessert.

Tips for making Frosted Mocha:

  • Keep an eye on the carbs in your cocoa powder, some of them contain more carbs than others. I use raw cacao powder when I can for an added healthy benefit, but it isn’t necessary to enjoy this delightful drink.
  • The added collagen in this drink gives you a good amount of protein to help make this a more satisfying snack. THM Integral Collagen or Custom Collagen works well in this recipe. It’s also great for your skin and joints.
  • The glucomannan helps give this drink a creamy texture. Either THM Glucomannan or Now Glucomannan would work well.
  • This drink is best enjoyed within a half-hour of making.
  • I do use a Vitamix blender and so I have a tamper that I use to push down the ice while it’s blending. If you are using a different type of blender you may need to stop the blender occasionally and use a large spoon or rubber spatula to push down the ice.

Trim Healthy Mamas this drink is an FP.

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.

Trim Healthy Mamas this is an E if you split it in two servings. If you split it into 4 servings it will be an FP.

Peach Good Girl Moonshine - Sugar-free, Low-carb

Quick and easy to make!

Peach Good Girl Moonshine is so delightful and refreshing. It’s a perfect summertime drink and the only thing you need to go along with it is…..a hammock or an ENO. Have you seen ENOS? They are a type of hammock that you can put up anywhere. We were able to visit with some dear friends over the 4th of July and they were telling us about their new ENOS and how much fun they were having with them. I seriously want one… or four.

Picture this peachy, ice-cold drink in a hammock with good company or a good book. Or maybe, with just the good company on the back porch.

Not only is this drink delicious, it’s an all-day sipper!  All-day sippers are drinks that don’t have any fuel that your body would need to burn or store. No fat, no carbs, no protein. Just refreshing goodness and good for you ingredients!

Trim Healthy Mamas this is an FP all-day sipper.

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.

Strawberry Banana Frosty

Strawberry Banana Frosty - Dairy-free - Sugar-free

Strawberry Banana Frosty - Dairy-free - Sugar-free

I remember when I was younger my mom and I stopping by my future husband’s home and visiting with him. We had just stopped at Dairy Queen and picked up a strawberry banana shake – my favorite. I remember us all standing by his front porch and talking while I was sipping on that shake and thinking he is so handsome. It’s funny how food can be so attached to a memory isn’t it?

Now days I keep away from dairy and sugar so I had to come up with a replacement. This shake brings me right back to that summery day years ago and it’s still so yummy. Plus, now I can serve it to that handsome man I married and feel good about giving him a good, healthy treat.

  • I add collagen in my drinks to get an extra boost of nutrition and protein. It’s optional, but I think you would like it. You can read about all the benefits of collagen at Dr. Axe’s site. I recommend Custom Collagen or THM Integral Collagen.
  • I also add glucomannan to my shake to help thicken it up a little and give it a bit of creaminess. Without having cow-dairy you have to work a little harder to get that lovely creamy effect and the glucomannan really helps with that. Be careful to add it slowly to your foods when you use it, as it can clump up if not. It’s a healthy, no-carb, starch and a little goes a long way. I recommend Now Glucomannan or THM Glucomannan

Trim Healthy Mamas this Strawberry Banana Frosty is an E.

Strawberry Banana Frosty photography

I wanted to add this photo to my post to give you a little peak at what happens when I am doing a photoshoot for my recipes. My youngest daughter, Emily Rose, is an excellent photographer and has been teaching me the ins and outs of phototgraphy. Often times when I get my food all set up for a shoot, she’ll go grab her camera and have some fun shooting, too. I found this photo on her camera capturing me “trying” to get the right shot. When you see an excellent photo on my blog, just know that it’s probably her work.

Frosted Strawberry Lemonade-MamaShire

After making my Frosted Lemonade, I began to think of all the different combinations of flavors that would be good in this shake! First up – Frosted Strawberry Lemonade! This is such a fun combination and so refreshing!

If you aren’t used to using glucomannan, it is a healthy starch that is very low-carb and adds a thickening, light creamy texture to the shake. I haven’t seen it in stores yet, but you can find it at Amazon or Trim Healthy Mama. You can make the shake without it, you will lose a little of the creamy effect. I have read where xanthan gum could be used as a substitute, but I haven’t tried that personally.

The collagen is optional, using it will give you some good protein and it has so many health benefits. It can be found at Amazon or Trim Healthy Mama, as well.

Homemade Almond Milk from Almond Butter

Easy Homemade Almond Milk made with almond butter. - MamaShire.com

 

Homemade Almond Milk - MamaShire.com

 

Homemade Almond Milk - MamaShire.com

I use almond milk nearly everyday and there are times when I run out, but can’t get to the store right away to get more.  I recently saw a recipe for tahini milk made with water and tahini and thought that it should work with almond butter, too. I usually have almond butter in the fridge or pantry, so this is my new way to make homemade almond milk. It’s incredibly easy to make and doesn’t require any straining or nut bags like you need when making almond milk from almonds.

Just water and sugar-free almond butter and you are all set to make the easiest homemade almond milk. I usually buy Costco’s Kirkland brand sugar-free almond butter or Zinke Orchards.  I’ve listed a few more ingredients in the recipe, like sunflower lecithin, xanthan gum, stevia, or salt, but you can leave those out if you don’t have them on hand. They do add to the overall texture and taste of the almond milk, though.

I’ll probably still buy almond milk, but when I run out or just want to cut back on groceries, I’ll be making it this easy way.

Recently our family stopped at a Chick-Fil-A and we were given a free Frosted Lemonade because they had accidentally made an extra one. Funny thing was we couldn’t eat it because of –you guessed it– the dairy. So, when I came across a copycat recipe on Pinterest, I decided to make one that’s dairy and sugar-free.

I have no idea how close it is to the original, but I think it’s yummy, creamy and refreshing! I love using metal straws with my drinks it makes the drinks extra special!
