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.

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.

Sweet & Salty Popcorn (Sugar-Free)

Sweet and Salty Popcorn - MamaShire

My girls and I went to a Gluten-Free Expo last month in Indianapolis and had such a good time trying all the samples of gluten-free foods. There was a lot of yummy food, but it wasn’t the type of gluten-free food that we normally eat. There was a lot of sugar. It’s not something I would want to do everyday, but once a year. Yeah.

One of the samples that we came home with was a little bag of sweet popcorn. Good thing it was a little bag, it would have been hard to stop. After looking at the ingredient list, I thought it would be quick and easy to duplicate, but make it sugar-free! So here it is – sugar-free sweet & salty popcorn!

Tips for making Sweet & Salty Popcorn:

  • Use an air popper to pop your popcorn.
  • Blend your choice of sweetener in a blender or coffee grinder to a powder consistency.
  • Use organic or Non-GMO popping corn if possible.
  • I use Spectrum Coconut Spray Oil. I have found that Walmart carries it at the lowest price.
  • For Trim Healthy Mamas, keep your serving size to 4 cups or under. This would be for an occasional E snack.

Recipe type: Snacks
Ingredients
  • 16 cups organic popped corn
  • 3-4 tablespoon homemade sweetener*, powdered or sweetener of choice
  • 1½ teaspoons sea salt
  • Coconut spray oil
Instructions
  1. To make powdered homemade sweetener, blend the sweetener in a blender or coffee grinder until powdered.
  2. Put popped corn in large bowl or pan. Spray over the popcorn for about 3-5 seconds and then sprinkle on about 1 tablespoon of powdered sweetener and the sea salt. Stir with two large spoons. Spray over the popcorn again for about 3-5 seconds and sprinkle another tablespoon of sweetener over the popcorn. Stir and repeat. Taste to see if it is sweet enough. If not, repeat process. You may need to spray the popcorn 2-3 more times and stir to get all the popcorn sweetened.
Notes
*homemade sweetener - 1 cup erythritol + 1 teaspoon stevia mixed together.
