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

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.

Almond Butter Cookies - Gluten Free, Sugar Free - MamaShire.com

Everyone in my family loves cookies, so having some quick and easy cookie recipes on hand that are on plan with Trim Healthy Mama is exactly what this mama needs. These grain-free almond butter cookies are easy to make and taste so good.

There is a recipe for peanut butter cookies like this that has been around for years, so a quick easy swap to almond butter and a THM on-plan sweetener makes these peanut free and sugar free. If peanuts are not a problem for anyone in your family go ahead and use unsweetened peanut butter in place of the almond butter.

My favorite almond butter is from Costco. It has no other ingredients except roasted almonds. We don’t live very close to a Costco, so when we do go we usually stock up on favorites like this. We also like this almond butter on our toasted gluten-free bread.

Pumpkin Pie (Gluten, Dairy, and Sugar-Free)

Pumpkin Pie - Gluten, Dairy and Sugar-Free - MamaShire

Pumpkin pie has always been one of my favorite pies, especially cold right out of the fridge. After we changed our diet I could no longer rely on my favorite recipe on the back of the Libby’s Pumpkin can. So, I have been on a quest to make a good pumpkin pie that is gluten, dairy, and sugar-free. I think this recipe finally hits the spot.

Some tips for making this pie:

  • Libby’s brand of pure pumpkin is my favorite. It has the best color and consistency.
  • Cashew milk has a nice creamy texture and doesn’t compete with the pumpkin flavor like coconut milk can.
  • I used 1/2 cup of my homemade sweetener in this recipe and it is mildly sweet. If you like a really sweet pie you can add a bit more sweetener to it, try 1/8 cup to 1/4 cup more. Again you don’t want the sweetener to dominate the pumpkin flavor.
  • I recommend using a pie crust from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook or this pie crust from Elana’s Pantry.

Trim Healthy Mamas, this pie is an S. Make sure to use a pie crust that is also an S.

Serves: 12 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 15 oz. can pure pumpkin
  • 1 cup cashew milk*
  • ½ cup homemade sweetener**
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
1 gluten-free pie crust
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Prepare pie crust.
  2. In a large bowl mix all pie filling ingredients together.
  3. Pour into prepared pie crust.
  4. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Then reduce oven temperature to 350° and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center of pie comes out clean.

  6. Refrigerate leftovers.
Notes
*You can also use almond milk or coconut milk. I think the cashew milk gives it the creamiest texture and doesn't overpower the pumpkin taste.
**homemade sweetener - 1 cup erythritol + 1 teaspoon stevia mixed together.

Easy Lasagna (Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free)

Easy to make and delicious! Easy Lasagna that’s gluten-free and dairy-free. Freezes well so it’s a great meal to make ahead. Low-carb, THM-S.

Easy Lasagna - Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Recipe by MamaShire

My dear friend, Carla, used to make an amazing lasagna that was legendary in our circles. Her recipe called for extra basil and it was so good. Since going gluten and dairy-free, I have missed that lasagna and I’ve had more than one little “sigh” thinking back on it.

When the new Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook came out this fall, I was happy to see that there were many dairy-free recipes in the book, but then I came across the Lazy Lasagna, which is not dairy-free. Oh, I wanted lasagna. Their recipe uses spinach in place of noodles and it got me to thinking, how can I make a lasagna like that, but dairy-free. I often use sheep cheese as a cow-dairy replacement, but I wanted something completely dairy-free. Then I remembered the white sauce that I make for my baked salmon and wondered if it could work as a dairy replacement in lasagna.

So I combined three different recipes to come up with this gluten-free, dairy-free delicious easy lasagna. I hope your family loves it as much as mine does. It’s good to have lasagna back in our lives!

Easy Lasagna - Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Recipe by MamaShire

Notes on a couple ingredients used in my Easy Lasagna:

  • This recipe uses glucomannan which is a natural thickener from the konjac plant and is a low-glycemic food. It only takes a little bit to thicken your recipes. This is an ingredient that you probably won’t find at a local store, but you will be able to find it on Amazon or at Trim Healthy Mama.
  • I also have nutritional yeast in this recipe. This gives the white sauce a nice cheesy flavor. You may not be able to find it locally either. I buy mine from Amazon. If you’d like further information on the health benefits of nutritional yeast, there’s a great article on Dr. Axe’s website.

  2. While your meat is cooking, whisk together in a medium bowl the mayo, coconut milk, 2 eggs, nutritional yeast, onion powder, cayenne, and sea salt. After everything is mixed well sprinkle the glucomannan over the mixture and then whisk it in. Let set while you drain your spinach.
  3. Drain your spinach in a colander lined with a cheese cloth or a wire mesh colander. You can use wax paper or saran wrap to cover the spinach and then push on the wax paper to keep your hands from getting spinach on them.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°.
  5. Spread one half of the meat sauce in a 9" x 13" baking dish. Layer half of the spinach over the meat sauce and then half of the white sauce. Repeat the layers.
