Raw Banana Ice Cream

There is a YouTube video on how to make raw banana ice cream with a juicer. You just remove the skin from bananas; freeze the bananas, whole; remove the filter or screen from your juicer; feed them through and voila! – You have soft serve banana ice cream.  However, what does one do if they do not have a juicer? You can even make ice cream without an ice cream maker and both without a juicer. This recipe is gluten-free, vegan, raw, refined sugar-free and sugar-free, as it is naturally sweetened. Enjoy this healthy treat!

Baked French Fry Recipe

Low Fat Baked French Fries

Let’s face it french fries that have been deep fried are high in calories. If you’d like a french fry lower in fat and calories just bake them. I’m all for low fat french fries! I recently purchased a Nonstick French Fry Baking Pan which allows the heat to rise from the bottom through holes in the pan, allowing browning to occur on both sides. A little olive oil spray makes them taste like regular french fries.  Continue reading “Baked French Fry Recipe”

Dr. Oz recently shared a canned salmon salad recipe on his show. I do not eat salmon, but adapted his recipe to my liking and around my food allergies, used canned chicken breast instead; and added the mixture to my gluten-free bread roll. I love Indian food and the turmeric was a refreshing touch! If you like Indian food you will most likely enjoy this recipe. It contains Greek yogurt versus mayonnaise, making it a healthier choice, yet a real treat! Continue reading “Gluten Free Low Fat Chicken Salad, Indian Style”

I love soup, but out of all my gluten free soup recipes this has to be my new fave! In an attempt to eat healthier I have been purchasing produce that I have either never purchased before or seldom do.

Gluten Free Raw Fudge

Gluten Free Raw Fudge

After watching this video recipe on Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake I have been wanting to try it. Unfortunately, I had no avocado for the frosting, nor raspberries for the filling. Darn! I tried a different spin on things and made a smaller portion of what I really would like to call “guilt-free” raw fudge. This raw fudge makes a great dessert, as well as a snack, and is also low-sodium, low-fat, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free dessert. And healthy, too! Continue reading “Gluten Free Raw Fudge”

Gluten Free Carrot Cake (Sugar-Free)

Gluten Free Sugar Free Carrot Cake with Chestnut Flour

This recipe is very moist, yet not too heavy. It is flaky, like regular carrot cake. All that and it’s oil-free, milk-free, and sugar-free. It contains eggs. Those who cannot tolerate corn should be aware that xanthan gum is derived from corn, though some manufacturers state that the corn sugars are removed in processing. You may consider using guar gum instead. This far surpasses my carrot muffin recipe that I posted previously. I cut a piece to take a photo, but once I felt the texture I ate it instead (laugh)! It is adapted from a Carrot Cake Recipe thay used to be published on All Recipes website. Continue reading “Gluten Free Carrot Cake (Sugar-Free)”

Several weeks ago I discovered a salad dressing (do not recall where) and thought to myself, “Wow, I bet I can make a Greek yogurt salad dressing similar that that and save a ton of calories!” Well, I made it, changed a couple things of around. It needed a bit of sweetness and I was out of red onion, so I add a few pinches of stevia and some onion powder, and voila! – a great gourmet salad dressing!
