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.

This recipe for Baked Cajun Chicken Strips is one of our favorite ways to make chicken. These are great for supper or lunch. They are also one of our favorite picnic dishes. I love to have these made up ahead of time and be able to grab them for a picnic or for some road trip food.

Use my Homemade Cajun Spice Mix for a gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free dish. Many ready-made spice mixes contain ingredients that might be allergens.

I use mayonnaise on the chicken strips to help them stay moist and tender. If you prefer, you can make your own mayonnaise from this recipe from Deep Roots at Home.

One of our favorite chicken recipes is Baked Cajun Chicken Strips. They are easy to make and not only are they great for supper, but they are one of our favorite picnic foods. This Homemade Cajun Spice Mix will give you the spicy flavor you need for any recipe that calls for a Cajun seasoning mix.

Many store bought spice mixes have ingredients that say “spices” that include things that we may not want to be eating, like msg, or they have wheat or whey (dairy) in them. With that in mind, I love being able to make my own spice mixes. I can control the ingredients and how much of them go into the mix. This is especially important if you have dietary restrictions.

Frosted Lemonade-Dairy-Free-Sugar-Free-Mamashire.com

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 feel extra special!

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. You can make the shake 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.

The collagen is optional, using it will give you some good protein and it has so many health benefits. I use Custom Collagen I’m really happy with it and it has a good price!

MamaShire’s Gluten-Free Baking Blend

MamaShire's Gluten-Free Baking Blend

This is my Gluten-Free Baking Blend that I have been using for several of the recipes in the new Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook.

The THM Baking Blend is featured in many of recipes throughout the new THM Cookbook. While I really like the THM Baking Blend, I wanted to have my own blend that I could tweak and that might be a little less expensive.

My baking blend is not the same as the THM Baking Blend, but it is similar. I like being able to have a big batch made up and ready to go. I’m much more likely to bake something yummy for my family if I have the blend all ready to go.

My blend doesn’t contain almond flour like the THM Baking Blend does, because I already use almond flour in a lot of my recipes and I wanted to have an alternative so that we’re not “always” eating almonds. Seriously, we eat this gluten-free bread  made with almond flour several times a week. Plus, this keeps the cost of the blend down. Win, win.

MamaShire's Gluten-Free Baking Blend

I have listed all the ingredients below and where I like to purchase them from. You may be able to find coconut flour and golden flaxmeal locally, but the other items will probably have to be ordered online. The initial purchase of these items will add up, but you will be able to get quite a bit of baking blend from them.

Good Girl Moonshine Recipe Roundup

Ready to get your Moonshine on? A Good Girl Moonshine Recipe Roundup of some of our favorite drinks! Trim Healthy Mama All-Day Sippers.

Good Girl Moonshine Recipe Roundup by MamaShire

I’ve been enjoying Good Girl Moonshines for awhile now, but I know that some of you might be struggling a little to like it. So, I thought to help everyone out, I’d put together a Good Girl Moonshine Recipe Roundup of some of the most popular variations for “GGMS” and some tips and tricks to making this a drink that you will love.

This drink has been around for years, its often been called Haymaker’s Punch or Switchel, but Pearl and Serene from Trim Healthy Mamas coined it’s newest name, Good Girl Moonshine. It’s a wonderful all-day sipper that helps keep you hydrated and nourishes your body with it’s healthy ingredients.

This drink is a perfect substitution for sodas! It has a pleasant zing and can keep the “snack attacks” away.

The original recipe Good Girl Moonshine recipe can be found on the Trim Healthy Mama website and you should really take a few minutes and watch Pearl and Serene demonstrate how they make Good Girl Moonshine in this video. They are so fun to watch.

And Amber shows you how to make Mama Dew and Apple Cinnamon versions in this video.

Tips and Tricks for making Good Girl Moonshine:

  • If you aren’t sure if you like the taste of ginger, just put a few shakes of powdered ginger in your drink and then slowly adjust it over time to get up to a teaspoon of it in your drink. Read about the health benefits of ginger here.
  • Use raw apple cider vinegar “with the mother” like Bragg Organic ACV. You should be able to find it in your local grocery store. Since apple cider vinegar is rather tart, start off with the smaller amount and work your way up to get used to it.
  • When drinking apple cider vinegar throughout the day it’s best to use straws. It helps keep the acid from the ACV off of your teeth. Our favorite straws are these metal straws or plastic straws. The metal straws come with a wire cleaner, but for the plastic straws I use this straw cleanerACV can actually whiten your teeth, but should be rinsed off. Read more about the health benefits of ACV here.
  • If you’d like your GGMS to be fizzier you can add carbonated water or sparkling water to your recipe.

You can find the original Trim Healthy Mama Good Girl Moonshine recipe on their website along with several other recipes.

This version of the Good Girl Moonshine adds in some lemon juice for a delightful, healthy lemonade. This is a sipper drink in that it can be sipped on throughout the day. I also have the Strawberry Lemonade version listed in the recipe, but this one should be drank in a shorter time period, due to the carbs in the strawberries. If you prefer to keep it a sipper drink, but still want the strawberry flavor, add a few whole strawberries to the drink.

Raspberry Good Girl Moonshine - MamaShire.com

This is the most popular drink I make in our house. If I ask if anyone in my family if they want a Raspberry Good Girl Moonshine, everyone answers with a YES! It is such a refreshing and fun drink and so good for you. However, everyone likes them just a little bit different – maybe a little more apple cider vinegar for one or a little less ginger for another, so I came up with an easy way to make them to everyone’s liking.

Tips and tricks to making Raspberry Good Girl Moonshine:

  • Put a different colored rubberband around each glass and remember who has what color. Don’t forget this step like I did for the above pictures or you might have to taste test each one to see whose is whose.
  • Use raw apple cider vinegar “with the mother” like Bragg’s Organic ACV. You should be able to find it in your local grocery store.
  • If you aren’t sure if you like the taste of ginger just put a few shakes of powdered ginger in your drink and then slowly adjust it over time to get up to a teaspoon of it in your drink.
  • Put apple cider vinegar, sweetener, and ginger in each jar.
  • Blend 1 tablespoon of raspberries for each person along with a cup of water. Blend until berries are smooth.
  • Pour equal amounts of the blended raspberries into each jar.
  • Top off  each jar with water or water and ice and stir.
  • You can use straws to make them more festive and to keep the apple cider vinegar from getting on your teeth too much. Our favorite straws are metal straws or these plastic straws shown in the picture. The metal straws come with a wire cleaner, but for the plastic straws I use this straw cleaner.
  • If you really want to kick this up a notch you can use carbonated water in place of regular water.

Oolong Rooibos Chai Recipe + Giveaway!

You all have been so wonderful and supportive – it has blown me away at your response to my new blog! As a thank you, I am giving away some of my favorite things over the next four Fridays.

“A Month of Giveaways!”

This week’s Giveaway will be a $50 Gift Card from Amazon!

Let’s face it, sometimes your local stores just don’t carry items that you need or want, like the ingredients for Oolong Rooibos Chai, my version of the Trim Healthy Mama Shrinker drink. That’s where Amazon comes in handy!

Oolong Rooibos Chai Recipe - MamaShire

When I first started following Trim Healthy Mama two years ago, I began drinking their famous “Shrinker” sipper drink and loved it. Although the first time I made it, I put WAY too much cayenne in it. Quick lesson learned, start with a pinch of cayenne and build up to suit your taste.

You can find the Original Shrinker Recipe on the Trim Healthy Mama’s website and facebook page. While the original recipe is easy to make, I wanted something even easier – like super easy!  The addition of a rooibos tea that is already spiced was the answer for me.

Oolong Rooibos Chai Recipe - MamaShire

I enjoy one or two of these everyday. If you plan on having just one of these in a day’s time you can use 4 oolong tea bags, but if planning on more than one a day, use just 2-3 oolong tea bags per drink. You’ll get to enjoy more drink, but not use up so many tea bags.

Chicken Noodle Soup – Gluten-Free

Chicken Noodle Soup - Gluten-Free - MamaShire

This is our family’s favorite Chicken Noodle Soup – Gluten-Free recipe and it works wonderfully with the Trim Healthy Mama plan.

This soup is one of the first soups that I made as a young bride years ago. I remember being so excited to try it. I had found the recipe on the back of a can of broth and thought it sounded so good. Not being a very experienced cook the thought of even trying to make soup was a big step for me. Thankfully, it turned out yummy and was pretty easy to make.

Chicken Noodle Soup - Gluten-Free - MamaShire

When we made the switch to eating gluten-free, I used rice noodles instead of the wheat egg noodles that I originally used in this recipe. Now that we follow the Trim Healthy Mama plan and needing to keep it gluten-free, I use cabbage for our “noodles”. Our family loves it and we don’t miss those old style of noodles one bit.

Chicken Noodle Soup - Gluten-Free - MamaShire

I like to make a big pot of this soup so that it will last for several meals. I use my Cuisinart food processor that is similar to this model and it makes quick work of all the slicing, shredding, and dicing. I’ve had other food processors before this one that usually cost $40 or less, but they all would quit working after a year or two, so while it is more expensive it is very reliable and hard working.

Chicken Noodle Soup - Gluten-Free - MamaShire

You can use canned broth and chicken for this recipe if you’d like, or you make your own broth and cooked chicken with the recipe that I put in the notes below.

I include a couple of seasonings in this recipe that you may or may not have on hand or even be familiar with – nutritional yeast and Herbamare. They are both optional to the recipe, but I do think they add delicious flavoring to the soup.

Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast that comes in the form of yellow flakes, is high in B vitamins, and has a delicious cheesy taste. I love adding it to savory soups, non-dairy “cheese” crackers, casseroles, veggies, and popcorn. You can learn more about nutritional yeast and its benefits on Dr. Josh Axe’s website.

Herbamare is an organic herb seasoning salt. We especially like the flavor of this seasoned salt and love that its organic and gluten-free. We use it in soups, crackers, and veggie dishes.

For you Trim Healthy Mamas this soup is an FP.

Chicken Noodle Soup – Gluten-Free

Chicken Noodle Soup - Gluten-Free - MamaShire
  • Author:
  • Yield: 12-16 servings
  • Category: Soups

Ingredients

  • 8 cups chicken broth, if buying make sure it’s gluten-free
  • 4-6 cups of water
  • 6 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 1 lb carrots, sliced
  • 6-8 celery stalks, sliced
  • 1/2 head of cabbage, finely shredded, about 5-6 cups
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 lb bag of frozen cauliflower, mostly thawed, optional to add
  • 2-4 tablespoons nutritional yeast, optional
  • 1-2 teaspoons of Herbamare, or other seasoned salt
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Start by taking the frozen bag of cauliflower out of the freezer and setting it out to begin thawing.
  2. Put the broth and water in a large stockpot and bring to boil.
  3. While your broth and water are heating up, slice your carrots and celery. Add to the broth.
  4. Shred your cabbage and dice your onion. Add both to the pot.
  5. Chop up your cauliflower into small pieces about the size of rice and add to the soup.
  6. Add seasonings.
  7. Bring soup to a boil. Turn down to simmer, cover the pot and let simmer for 20-30 minutes, until veggies are tender.
  8. Add shredded chicken to pot and let simmer for another 15-20 minutes.

Notes

To make your own chicken broth, place a whole chicken (giblets removed) in a large crockpot with one onion quartered and 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar. Add water to cover chicken. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or until the meat is falling off the bones. Remove chicken to cool. This will all be hot so use caution. Drain the broth through a mesh strainer. Use this broth for your soup. Take the meat off the bones and shred to add to your soup. You may not need all of the chicken for your soup, so you can save some chicken back for another use. You can make more broth by taking the bones of the chicken and putting them back into the crockpot. Add water to an inch or more below the top of the crockpot. Add a quartered onion and 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar to the crockpot. You can cook this on low for 12-48 hours to get some wonderfully rich broth.
