I love mixing different fruit with lemon juice in my drinks! And this combination of blueberries and lemons goes together so wonderfully!

This yummy drink has a full serving of blueberries. I used frozen blueberries in this recipe, but fresh will work too.

The collagen is optional, but using it will give you a good serving of protein and it has so many health benefits. My favorite brands of collagen are Custom Collagen and Integral Collagen.

I love to use reusable straws with my drinks, like these metal straws. I was looking at these metal straws too, I think the different sizes would be so handy.

If you are following Trim Healthy Mama, this recipe as written in an E (energizing). If you would like to make it an FP (fuel pull) lower the amount of blueberries in the recipe to 1/2 cup.

Air-Fried Kale Chips ingredients - avocado oil in a spritzer, nutritional yeast, kale, Himalayan salt, and an air-fryer.

All you need are just a few ingredients and an Air Fryer to make these crunchy, delicious kale chips. These kale chips have just three ingredients added to the kale for a delicious flavor – nutritional yeast, Himalayan salt, and avocado oil. I put the avocado oil in my EVO Sprayer to spritz the oil onto the kale, it’s simple and easy to use!

Kale chips before they are air-fried.

Use your hands and gently massage the oil and spices onto the kale pieces. Your hands will get a bit messy, but they’ll clean up easy, so don’t get too bothered by getting oil on them.

Place half of the kale into the basket of the fryer. Your air fryer should have a wire rack that fits inside the basket, place that on top of the kale. As the kale cooks it will get lighter and want to swirl around a bit inside your fryer’s basket. The wire rack will keep them in place.

After just 5 minutes at 350° the kale chips ready and delicious!

Quick and easy to make kale chips in an air fryer.

  • Author: MamaShire

Ingredients

1 bunch kale
avocado oil or olive oil in a spritzer
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt

Instructions

Rinse kale and dry it with paper towels or flour sack towel. I like to use kitchen shears to cut off the stem, but a knife will work too. Tear leaves into pieces around 3 inches long and in width. They will shrink as they cook so be sure to have a nice size to begin with.

Place in large bowl and spritz with oil about 10-12 times. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast and salt. Then use your hands to mix it up and massage in the oil and seasoning. Your hands will get messy, but that’s okay just wash them and you’re good to go.

Place half of the kale into the basket of your air fryer. Your air fryer should have come with a wire rack that fits inside the basket. Place that over the kale. This will keep it from blowing around as it becomes dry and lightweight.

Cook it at 350° for 5 minutes. Remove from air-fryer and place in a serving bowl. Repeat with second half of kale.

Enjoy! Make some more tomorrow.

Notes

If there are any pieces that you think are not crisp enough you can put those pieces back in and cook for one more minute. But keep in mind they will cook quick and could get a little burned, so keep an eye on them.

You can experiment with different spices to get make your favorite flavor. I sometimes add just a pinch of cayenne.

Blackberries are so yummy and they contain an incredible amount of nutrients that it would be good to have them in your diet on a regular basis. One cup of blackberries contains half the daily recommended amount of Vitamin C. These beautiful dark blackberries are extra high in polyphenols, which are a type of antioxidant known for their cancer-fighting abilities.

I add glucomannan to this recipe to give it a more creamy texture. If you don’t have glucomannan you can make this drink without it, but it will have more of an icy texture.

This recipe calls for a scoop of collagen for added protein, it will help satisfy your appetite longer. Collagen also has many health benefits. When I use it I can tell a difference in my joints, they feel better – less noticeable and my hair and nails grow stronger and longer.

Frosted Raspberry Lemonade

Frosted Raspberry Lemonade is perfect for a light and refreshing treat. It’s THM-FP, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, and Sugar-free!

I started making frosty drinks when I first started following Trim Healthy Mama a few years ago. Never to leave a recipe alone, I started dabbling around with different flavor combinations and I was hooked. These drinks are so refreshing and so good for you.

Frosted Raspberry Lemonade - Delicious and refreshing! Dairy-free, sugar-free, low-carb, gluten-free! THM-FP

I’ve been creating several different flavors and whichever one I’m drinking is my favorite. I’ve included a list at the bottom of the post with some of my other drinks.

Frosted Raspberry Lemonade - Delicious and refreshing! Dairy-free, sugar-free, low-carb, gluten-free! THM-FP

A few years ago some dear friends gave us some of their extra red raspberry bushes. At the time I wasn’t thrilled about the idea because I had grown up enjoying my grandmother’s black raspberry pie that she made from the wild black raspberry bushes that were in our woods. I thought they were the only “good” raspberry. While I still think black raspberries are amazing, I have come to appreciate these red beauties more and more. They’re incredibly low in carbs like most all berries, and they’re so healthy for you.

This recipe makes one-quart serving, but if it’s too big you can share half of it with a loved one. If you decide to divide the recipe and share it, I suggest you double the amount of collagen so that there is a good serving of collagen in both drinks.

For you Trim Healthy Mamas, this Frosted Raspberry Lemonade is an FP and is best enjoyed within the first 30-45 minutes of making.

Fried Green Beans | gluten-free, low-carb

Fried green beans is an easy and delicious side dish. I like to keep frozen green beans on hand to quickly round out a meal. When I was growing up, I think I was the only one in my family who didn’t like green beans, but frying them like this made me come to love them. They have such a great texture and flavor.

I use gluten-free Herbamare organic seasoning salt in my recipe, but feel free to use your favorite seasoned salt blend. Make sure to check ingredients if needing to be gluten-free.

Trim Healthy Mamas one serving of this recipe is an FP. The fat is 5 g and the net carbs are 6 g. Depending on what you serve it with it can be an FP, S, or and E.
