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.

Peach Good Girl Moonshine - Sugar-free, Low-carb

Quick and easy to make!

Peach Good Girl Moonshine is so delightful and refreshing. It’s a perfect summertime drink and the only thing you need to go along with it is…..a hammock or an ENO. Have you seen ENOS? They are a type of hammock that you can put up anywhere. We were able to visit with some dear friends over the 4th of July and they were telling us about their new ENOS and how much fun they were having with them. I seriously want one… or four.

Picture this peachy, ice-cold drink in a hammock with good company or a good book. Or maybe, with just the good company on the back porch.

Not only is this drink delicious, it’s an all-day sipper!  All-day sippers are drinks that don’t have any fuel that your body would need to burn or store. No fat, no carbs, no protein. Just refreshing goodness and good for you ingredients!

Trim Healthy Mamas this is an FP all-day sipper.

White Root Beer Frosty - Dairy-free, Sugar-free

A new twist on an old favorite – Root Beer Float becomes a White Root Beer Frosty featuring Zevia Ginger Root Beer!

Recently Zevia started making their drinks clear – no caramel coloring!

Zevia sodas don’t contain sugar, use non-GMO ingredients, and contains no phosphoric acid! Yay! You can read more about Zevia’s ingredients on their website. I’ve been able to find Zevia’s at my local grocery store and they are often on sale! Zevia’s Zero Calorie Sodas are making my sugar-free life a little easier.

  • This recipe calls for collagen, it’s optional to add in, but it does add protein and makes this treat much more nutritious. My favorite brands are THM’s Integral Collagen or Custom Collagen through Amazon, since this isn’t an item that is normally at your local grocery store you would need to order it, it’s just a matter of where you like to order from.
  • The glucomannan gives this treat a creamier texture. And again I use both THM’s brand or Now brand, it just depends on where I’m ordering and sale prices.

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets

 

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets

I don’t remember when chicken nuggets first came on the scene, but I think the first nuggets I had were at McDonalds years ago. I thought they were pretty wonderful, especially dipped in honey-mustard sauce.

Since going gluten-free and following Trim Healthy Mama, I need to make our chicken nuggets from scratch. I call these lazy chicken nuggets because there are days, probably more often than not, that I don’t want to have to do much to get supper on the table. So, instead of dipping the little chicken pieces in eggs and then picking each one out and then dredging them in batter, I just pour the eggs on the chicken and then pour the breading over it all. Give it a stir and then get them to frying. The hardest part of this recipe is cutting the chicken breasts into pieces.

I use red palm oil in this recipe, because I think it adds a wonderful flavor and a lovely golden color to your food. If you don’t have any feel free to use coconut oil only.

Trim Healthy Mamas these Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets are an S.

Lazy Grain-Free Chicken Nuggets
 
Author:
Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 5 servings
Ingredients
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 2 whole eggs, or 2 egg yolks (only if you already have some separated), whisked with a fork
  • ½ cup flaxmeal
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼-1/2 teaspoon mineral salt
  • 4 tablespoons red palm oil
  • 3 tablespoon coconut oil
Instructions
  1. Cut chicken breasts in 1 to 2 inch pieces.
  2. Begin heating skillet with red palm oil and coconut oil over medium heat.
  3. Place chicken breasts in pie pan or other shallow dish.
  4. Pour eggs over chicken and stir around with a fork, making sure that the egg covers the chicken pieces.
  5. In a small bowl mix flaxmeal, coconut flour, spices, and salt together. Spread over chicken. Stir chicken around to coat with the breading.
  6. Once the oil in the skillet is hot, carefully place chicken in skillet without crowding too much. If all the chicken doesn't fit in the skillet you may need to fry a second batch, if so you add a little more oil to the pan before frying the second batch. Or use 2 skillets at the same time.
  7. Turn after 4-5 minutes and continue frying on other side another 4-5 minutes or until golden brown.

Dairy-Free Peach Frozen Yogurt

 

Dairy-free Peach Frozen Yogurt - Sugar-Free, Low-Carb

 

Dairy-free Peach Frozen Yogurt - Sugar-Free, Low-Carb

 

Dairy-free Peach Frozen Yogurt - Sugar-Free, Low-Carb

This dairy-free peach frozen yogurt brings back memories of my childhood. I remember one summer when I was little and we had a large family reunion the adults were making peach ice cream for everyone. They were using one of those crank ice cream makers and family members were taking turns cranking the machine, while everyone was anxiously awaiting. Well, I know I was anxiously awaiting. It was such a novelty to me to have homemade ice cream and for it to have peaches in it. I’m thinking it was my grandfather’s favorite flavor.

After what seemed like forever to my young mind, they started passing those bowls of creamy goodness out to everyone. I remember taking those first few bites of peachy goodness and thinking the world was a wonderful place. It’s a snapshot in my mind of a perfect summer day with family and the most delicious peach ice cream man could make.

Fast forward to today and we have the blessing of being able to make homemade ice cream and frozen yogurt in a simple to use electric ice cream maker. I love to use my ice cream maker, especially now that our family needs to eat dairy-free we can still enjoy delicious and healthy desserts like this one.

This dairy-free peach frozen yogurt is so simple and easy to make, just blend the ingredients and put it all in the ice cream maker and let it do it’s magic. I’ve added in the flavors of vanilla and just a bit of ginger to make the peach flavor really shine.

Trim Healthy Mamas 1/4 of this recipe is an FP. If you have more than 1/4 of this recipe it will push it into an E category.

Peach Frozen Yogurt
 
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 cups frozen peaches, a 10 oz bag is the perfect size.
  • 1 16 oz container Unsweetened Coconut Milk Yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons THM Sweet Blend or *homemade sweetener
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable glycerine, optional
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger, optional
Instructions
  1. Place coconut yogurt in blender first, then add the remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth.
  2. Add mixture to ice cream maker, following manufacturer's instructions.
  3. Enjoy!
Notes
The ginger is optional, but it really does enhance the peach flavor.
The vegetable glycerine is optional too, but I think you'll find that it does make the texture creamier.
If you freeze any left-overs, remove from the freezer 10-20 minutes before serving to allow it to soften up a bit.
*homemade sweetener - 1 cup erythritol + 1 teaspoon Now Better Stevia

Gluten-free biscuits that are light and fluffy?

Yes, they are! Both of my daughters were so excited when they first taste tested these for me, because most of the biscuits that I’ve tried to make over the years have been more like a hockey pucks, but not these! These biscuits are light and fluffy, just like a good biscuit should be.

The trick is to use egg whites and to beat them to a nice froth before mixing with the flour.

I’ve made them with coconut oil that was melted and coconut oil  just softened and they worked great both ways. I found these were easier to make using the melted coconut oil, since all you have to do is stir.
