Dairy-Free Sugar-Free Shakes – Recipe Roundup of 8 Shakes, Frosties, and Smoothies. Gluten-free, Soy-free, Low-carb, Trim Healthy Mama

Dairy-Free & Sugar-Free Smoothies & Frosties - Gluten-free, THM

(This post contains affiliate links. Any purchases you make through my links will provide me with a small commission at no extra charge to you. Thank you for your support!  I appreciate it so much! See my disclosure policy here.)

These smoothies and frosties are so yummy and refreshing and work perfectly with Trim Healthy Mama!  I have eight different flavors to share with you and I added one more at the end for fun.

  • These smoothies and frosties call for  glucomannan. If you aren’t used to using glucomannan, it’s 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 on Amazon. You can make these drinks without it, but you’ll lose a little of the creamy effect and since we’re doing this dairy free we need all the creaminess we can get. I have read where xanthan gum could be used as a substitute, but I haven’t tried that personally. Either Now Glucomannan or THM Glucomannan would work well.
  • 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.

Here are the 8 Smoothies & Frosties:

Mongolian Beef Egg Roll in a Bowl - Gluten-free, Low-carb, THM-FP

This is my take on P. F. Chang’s Mongolian Beef. They prepare theirs with steak strips and I wondered if we could get the same yummy taste using ground beef. Knowing how easy egg roll in a bowl is to make I decided to combine these two dishes and it turned out amazing.

Mongolian Beef Egg Roll in a Bowl - Gluten-free, Low-carb, THM-FP

The atmosphere and the food of P. F. Chang’s is so wonderful and to be able to recreate this taste at home and inexpensively is a win for me!

Mongolian Beef Egg Roll in a Bowl - Gluten-free, Low-carb, THM-FP

I decided to use a 16 oz. bag of coleslaw to make this dish even quicker. If you prefer to shred the cabbage yourself you would need about 5 cups and also 1 shredded carrot.

Of course you can use chop sticks to make this dish more fun to eat like my family does, but I can’t seem to get the hang of them so I’ll keep with my fork.

Mongolian Beef Egg Roll in a Bowl - Gluten-free, Low-carb, THM-FP

The glucomannan powder in this recipe is a carb-free thickener that can be used as a replacement for cornstarch. This powder is made from the konjac root and it doesn’t take much to achieve it’s thickening power. It’s mixed with the sweetener and ginger to make sure it spreads out nicely as it can clump up if you just drop it into a recipe. I use it in my dairy-free smoothies to get a creamy texture.

Trim Healthy Mamas this recipe is an FP. You can serve this with brown rice and make this meal an E. Keep your portion to 1/4 of the recipe or less to keep it an FP or E.

  • Author:
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Category: Dinner

Ingredients

Instructions

In a large skillet brown the ground beef. Drain off fat and rinse ground beef with hot water to quickly drain off any extra fat. Place ground beef back in skillet and begin reheating on medium heat.

Stir in the sliced green onions and garlic. Carefully pour in the coconut aminos and water and stir to mix.

In a small bowl mix together the erythritol, glucomannan, and ginger. Then add to the skillet.

Drizzle in the blackstrap molasses.

Add in the package of coleslaw. Stir to combine. Cover and let cook over medium heat for ten minutes stirring occasionally.

Notes

Trim Healthy Mamas, this recipe can be used as is, as an FP. And that would be one serving which is 1/4 of the entire dish.

It’s what you serve with it that will change it to an E or an S.

Serve it with brown rice and the rice will give it the good carbs to make it an E.

Serve it with other foods that are in the S category and it will be an S. You won’t need to rinse the beef if you are wanting it to be an S.

If you prefer you can use 5 cups shredded cabbage and 1 shredded carrot in place of the coleslaw.

Farmhouse Beans & Sausage

Farmhouse Beans & Sausage – A delicious, comfort meal made in just minutes using an Instant Pot. Gluten-free, Low-carb, THM-S

Farmhouse Beans & Sausage - Gluten-free, Low-carb, Instant Pot

Simple ingredients go together to make this easy comfort meal. Growing up this would be something that my mom or my grandmother would put together and cook in their pressure cookers. With the Instant Pot, it’s even easier and way less scary. I remember my mom telling us kids to get out of the kitchen when she was using the pressure cooker. It seemed scary to us, but maybe that was her way of getting a few minutes of quiet.

Farmhouse Beans & Sausage - Gluten-free, Low-carb, Instant Pot

Dicing the onion and slicing the sausage will be the only work that you’ll have to do to put this meal together. You could also use diced frozen onions for an even simpler prep time. Put all the ingredients in the Instant Pot with 2 cups of chicken broth, secure the lid and set 6 minutes on the manual setting. When the time is up use the quick release method of releasing the steam.

Farmhouse Beans & Sausage - Gluten-free, Low-carb, Instant Pot

 

Farmhouse Beans & Sausage - Gluten-free, Low-carb, Instant Pot

  • I like Miller Chicken Sausage because it’s free of gluten, nitrites, nitrates, and comes in at just 2 grams of carbs per link. If you don’t have this brand in your area you can use any other sausage that you would like as long as it’s on plan with Trim Healthy Mama ( 2 grams of carb or less per serving)
  • I also use Herbamare seasoning, it’s a favorite of our family, but you can use your favorite seasoning salt.
  • Depending on the fat grams in the sausage this could drop into an FP meal.

Trim Healthy Mamas this meal is a THM-S.

Air Fried Asparagus - Low Carb, THM-FP

These tasty asparagus spears are so simple to make. I’ve made these in the oven before, but using the Air Fryer makes it even quicker and easier. There is no need to preheat the oven, it doesn’t heat up the kitchen like an oven does, and one of my favorite reasons to use the air fryer is the ease of clean-up. The inside basket and base basket are light weight and a breeze to clean.

Air Fried Asparagus - Low Carb, THM-FP

Lightly spritz the asparagus with avocado oil or olive oil using an oil spritzer like this Evo Oil Sprayer. I bought this set of two when I bought the air-fryer and I really like how easy they are to use. (As of today, June 26, there is a coupon for $4 off the set on Amazon when you purchase, just be sure to click the coupon to apply it to your order. )

Air Fried Asparagus - Low Carb, THM-FP

You could also cut your asparagus up into smaller lengths, but I really like how dramatic they look long. Ha.

Air Fried Asparagus - Low Carb, THM-FP

This recipe makes it easy for me to get more vegetables in my diet. I made the green beans and sausage recipe in my Instant Pot while the asparagus was cooking in my Air Fryer and it was all so easy and the kitchen didn’t get hot at all.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Step by step pictures and instructions on how to cut and cook a spaghetti squash in the oven and in the Instant Pot. Easy to make ahead for quick dinners. It’s the perfect gluten-free low-carb solution to enjoying pasta dishes.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

(This post contains affiliate links. Any purchases you make through my links will provide me with a small commission at no extra charge to you. Thank you for your support!  See my disclosure policy here.)

I remember the first time I tried a spaghetti squash I was perplexed at how hard it was and really didn’t know how to cut it open. So I pulled out my big butcher knife and called my husband into the kitchen and asked him to take care of it. He did and then I baked it up and we had the first of many wonderful meals featuring spaghetti squash. As time went on I realized I needed to be able to cut that hard spaghetti squash myself and so I searched for the best way to cut one and this method is now my go to way to cut it open. It’s actually super easy and we never really needed that big ole’ knife after all.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

All you need is a small paring knife. My absolute favorite paring knife is by Rada. And while I’m at it the tomato knife by Rada is the bomb. You can use it on so many other things besides tomatoes. I wouldn’t want to be without my Rada knives in my kitchen. Okay, back to the cutting the squash. Hold onto one end of the spaghetti squash, keeping your fingers far from the cutting area.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Take the paring knife and insert just the tip. Do not push the knife in very far as it will get stuck from the pressure of the shell. So put just the tip in and then pull up and make another little cut.

How to Cut and Cook a Spaghetti Squash

Make your way all the way around the spaghetti squash until you connect with your first cut.

You may need to go around the squash with your paring knife one more time making the cut just a little bit deeper. This will not take hardly any time at all to do.

When I bake them I like to spritz the squash with some avocado or olive oil, you could also use a coconut cooking spray. It’s not necessary to spritz them if you will be cooking them in the Instant Pot.

Give a good sprinkle of salt.

I often make two or three spaghetti squash at a time and keep the cooked spaghetti strands in my refrigerator for a quick meal. It also freezes well, so I may put half of it in a freezer bag and freeze for another day.

I bake it in the oven at 350° for 60 to 70 minutes until nice and fork tender. I like to have my spaghetti squash soft so if you would prefer to have a crunchy bite just bake it for a little less.

Let it cool and then using a fork pull out the long strands of spaghetti.

Cooking in Instant Pot for one spaghetti squash

  1. Place the rack in the bottom of the pot and add 1 cup water. Place the two halves of the squash in the pot. You may need to place on up and one down to fit. Close lid and make sure steam vent is closed.
  2. Press Manual mode and set at 10 minutes for pressure.
  3. When pressure is finished and it switches to warm mode (with the L for low in front of the numbers) turn it off and carefully open the steam vent.
  4. When all the pressure is released you can open the pot and remove the squash.
  5. Allow the squash to cool before removing the strands of spaghetti with a fork.

Frosted Mocha - Dairy-free, Sugar-free, Low-Carb, THM-FP

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.

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

Easy steps to make perfect scones:

  1. Pat dough into an 8″ circle about 3/4″ thick on a parchment-lined baking pan.
  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.
