Dairy-Free Sugar-Free Shakes

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

Mongolian Beef Egg Roll in a Bowl. A sweet and delicious take on a P. F. Chang’s favorite. Gluten-free, Low-carb, Sugar-free, THM-FP

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.

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

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.

Quick and easy to make. THM-FP, E, or S.

  • 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

(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.)

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

Quick and easy Air-Fried Asparagus. Just a few minutes and you can have a tasty side of asparagus with little effort and easy cleanup. Low-carb, THM-FP

Air-Fried Asparagus - Quick and easy asparagus! THM-FP and as always Gluten-free and Dairy-free!

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.

Trim Healthy Mamas this Air-Fried Asparagus recipe is a THM-FP.

Copycat Orange Julius Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, THM-E

Now that summer’s in full swing and the temperatures are warming up, we’ve been enjoying these frosty orange drinks almost everyday. It’s so nice to come in from working outside and be able to quickly make this drink to cool off. It tastes like an orange julius from that popular ice cream fast food chain.

Copycat Orange Julius Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, THM-E

I add a scoop of collagen peptides to this drink to get some extra protein and health benefits in my diet, but if I’m planning on sharing this drink with one of my daughters, I’ll add 2 scoops to make sure we both get a good serving of collagen.

Copycat Orange Julius Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Sugar-free, THM-E

Another thing I love about this drink is that by adding in the orange with lots of the white pith still attached it provides more than a full serving of vitamin C. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m much more likely to drink this fun drink than to peel an orange and eat it. I quarter the orange and run a paring or tomato knife just under the peel to leave as much of the white pith on as possible. When I’ve got all the other ingredients mixed up, I’ll add the orange quarters to the blender with the ice cubes. Pour into a quart jar or two pint jars. Enjoy and be refreshed!

These stainless steel straws make it easy to make your drink extra special and you won’t ever run out of those plastic straws.

Strawberry Muffins Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free, THM-S

I think one of my favorite things to bake has to be muffins. Muffins are so easy to make and just plain fun to eat. And I love their look and texture. They great for breakfast or a quick snack. These would look really pretty with a special brunch as well.

Strawberry Muffins Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free, THM-S

These muffins have one cup of chopped strawberries and it makes for a very moist muffin if you prefer a drier muffin you can lower the amount of strawberries to 3/4 cup.

Strawberry Muffins Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free, THM-S

To sweeten these muffins you can use the Trim Healthy Mama Super Sweet Blend or my homemade version of that which is a mixture of 1 cup of Now Foods non-GMO Erythritol and 1 teaspoon of Now Foods Better Stevia. Our family likes this brand of stevia the best of all the ones that we have tried. I usually buy the 1 lb. container and it lasts for several months.

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.

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.
