Frosted Strawberry Lemonade Dairy-Free Sugar-Free MamaShire

 

Frosted Strawberry Lemonade-MamaShire

After making my Frosted Lemonade, I began to think of all the different combinations of flavors that would be good in this shake! First up – Frosted Strawberry Lemonade! This is such a fun combination and so refreshing!

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 on 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!

Homemade Almond Milk from Almond Butter

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.

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.

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.

Trim Healthy Mamas this flour blend is an FP, but depending on what you bake with it that could change to an S or an E.
This is a very thirsty flour blend, so it you are creating your own recipe be sure to add enough liquids to keep it happy.

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

(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’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.

Here are a few items to help make your Good Girl Moonshine:

Ginger

Apple Cider Vinegar with the “mother”

Stevia – THM Stevia Extract or my favorite Now Better Stevia

Metal straws – not absolutely necessary, (who am I kidding, in my house they are.)

And now for some variations:

Orange Cream Soda GGMS

Zingy Raspberry Good Girl Moonshine // Oh Sweet Mercy

Strawberry Limeade Good Girl Moonshine // Rashel’s Run

Hawaiian Punch Good Girl Moonshine // Searching for Hidden Treasure

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 follow my THM Drinks – Dairy Free Pinterest Board for more THM friendly drinks.

Lemonade Good Girl Moonshine - MamaShire.com

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, add a few whole strawberries to the drink to float around and flavor it.

  • 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.
  • 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.

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.

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

When I first started following Trim Healthy Mama four 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.
