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:

Frosted Mocha - Dairy-free, Sugar-free, Low-Carb, THM-FP

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.

Trim Healthy Mamas this drink is an FP.

These Coconut Strawberry Chia Muffins are some seriously, yummy muffins and to top it off the smell of strawberries baking is so good! While they were baking, both of my daughters came out of their art studio at different times to see what I had in the oven. I love it when that happens. Oh, I’m just in the kitchen baking up some delicious healthy food for you.

When you make these, you can enjoy the fact that they are chock-full of healthy superfoods – chia seeds, coconut flour, coconut oil, coconut milk. And if you are able, use organic strawberries and free-range eggs and you’ll be over the top.

If you are following Trim Healthy Mama, like I am, these are an “S”.

Coconut Strawberry Chia Muffins

Coconut Strawberry Chia Muffins - Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free
  • Author:
  • Yield: 12
  • Category: Bread

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup erythritol
  • 3/4 teaspoon Now Better Stevia
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda or grain-free baking powder, either will work here.
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan or sea salt
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries, fresh or frozen

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease muffin tin or line with paper liners.
  2. Mix coconut flour, chia seeds, erythritol, stevia, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  3. In a large bowl whisk by hand or use a mixer the coconut milk, eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla extract.
  4. Add flour mixture into egg mixture and mix until combined.
  5. Fold strawberries into batter.
  6. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown and center is set.
  7. Let set in pan on rack for 5 minutes before removing, then let cool on wire rack.

Notes

These muffins are a little on the sweet side. If you like less sweet, just back off a little on the erythritol and stevia or just leave out the stevia.

I like to use different flours when I’m baking to keep a variety in our diet. That’s why you’ll see my recipes sometimes call for almond flour, flax meal, coconut flour, sprouted gluten-free flours, or my baking blend.

Grain-Free Salmon Patties - MamaShire.com

These grain-free salmon patties have been a hit in my home. They go nicely with roasted or steamed vegetables. When we’re having a busy week, having these made up ahead of time make it easy to get in a quick, nutritious meal.

If you’d like to freeze these be sure to freeze the patties in a thick freezer bag or container so the salmon smell doesn’t transfer onto your other foods.

Be sure to buy wild-caught salmon, it’s full of omega-3, vitamins and minerals. The healthy omega-3 fats help protect against cancer and osteoporosis. It improves your skin, brain function, heart health among many others. You can read more about the nutritional benefits of salmon at Dr. Axe’s website.

I add some of my favorite seasonings in these salmon patties; Herbamare and nutritional yeast. If you don’t have those feel free to leave them out or use your favorite seasonings. The Herbamare is an organic seasoning salt that has sea salt and organic herbs. The nutritional yeast adds a slight cheesy flavor.

Homemade Almond Milk from Almond Butter

Easy Homemade Almond Milk made with almond butter. - MamaShire.com

 

Homemade Almond Milk - MamaShire.com

 

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.
